Top Tans...

It's coming into summer over here in Australia and, unfortunately, I'm stuck inside working everyday rather than working on my tan on the beach. But that's life. And that's why, I believe, they invented fake tan. I need to get bronzed somehow so I've turned to the bottle...




The Palmers Natural Bronze gradual tanning moisturizer is holy grail in my eyes. Yes it smells a bit strong (my poor boyfriend hates it) but the colour is so natural and wears the best out of any gradual tanners I've tried. I apply this twice a week (say Sunday and Wednesday night) with lots of moisturising and a gentle exfoliation on the days in-between. 

I can't believe I'm about to admit this but this is the first St.Tropez item I've ever tried. I know, I know, call yourself a beauty blogger.... I wouldn't say I was completely blown away with this considering the price tag (although I did get it on the Feel Unique sale) but it's a really subtle colour if I'm not wanting anything too dramatic. I actual find that if I apply this after I've been in the sun, it enhances my real tan while giving me a bit of extra colour in a super natural way. Also...smells really inoffensive for a tan!

Le Tan instant Fast Tan in Deep Bronze isn't so much 'Instant' but it's definitely 'Deep Bronze'. If I apply one layer of this at lunch time, by the evening I look like I've done two weeks in the sun and then some! It does transfer onto clothes a bit so probably avoid white but for a quick fix I adore this. If you shower then moisturise the next day, you're still left with a light bronze colour that looks perfect with a sun dress and sandals for the daytime.

What's everyone else's tan recommendations?

  2. Thnx for sharing! Was about to buy St Tropez but might go for Palmers. Have been looking for a good self tanner for quite some time now, and Palmers sounds really good <3

  6. I had only just discovered the Palmers lotion the week before moving to Canada. It is amazing and smells like good! ...It wouldn't fit in my luggage and THEY DON'T SELL IT HERE. This makes me sad. x
