Get your tan on: five best fake tans
It’s coming, the get-your-legs-out weather, the beach weather, the “goodbye jackets hello dresses” weather, the hello pasty legs weather more like (we’re as scared as you). But this no longer has to be a fear, you don’t have to rely on the unreliability of the UK weather as we’ve rounded up the five best fake tanning products that will bring a little Barcelona to your bathroom.
St Tropez Mousse
Reliable, strong, you know what you’re dealing with – that’s St Tropez to a T. If fake tanning is a grey area that you’re not ready to experiment with, go for the salon-worthy expense and play it safe, but not cool, with St Tropez.
Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel
James Read Sleep Mask Tan
This option is the one for the multi-taskers out there. This product enhances the idea of rich moisture and a sun-kissed glow in one product that works wonders over night. Quick, easy, no hassle, and best of all you can sleep on it.
Clinique Self Sun Body Tinted Lotion
The ultimate no surprises option, as it advertises it “shows where it goes”, meaning no more discoloured elbow comments, or between the knuckles – you’re in control this time. Only taking a few hours to develop, and having a flawless finish when done, this is for those that don’t want any funny business when cooking up some sunlight.
Dove Tanning Lotion
The cheapest, and the public’s view of the best – the number of times we’ve all complimented someone’s tan and the response is “it’s Dove” is infinite, and by only having to part with a few pounds, and getting the classic moisture that dove provides alongside the glow, there isn’t far to go wrong with a foolproof product like this.
If summer is getting you down as your milk bottle legs just aren’t cutting it, then get your fake on and add a little artificial sunshine into your life.
