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?
