easy to apply even to feet etc
Little scary at first
Messes up your sheets/towels etc but easy to wash out
Works with base tan so strap marks etc still visible but because of thickness can apply to just those areas.
I was a St Tropez worshiper before I became a poor student, I have very fair skin that doesn't tan easily and when I do it just makes me look like normal people do in winter!
Then my friend who is as luminous white as me recommended fake bake, I shopped around online, read all the reviews etc and found the three pack for a very reasonable price.
I was a little scared at first as it's been about two years since I used a real fake tan, not this moisturizer stuff, but still couldn't be bothered to moisturise first .I did use the body polish and put the oil on my knees, elbows, hands, feet etc.
The tan was very thick and gloppy but I rubbed it in like a moisturizer which seemed to stop it rubbing off so much on sheets etc and dried quite quickly, you can see the bits you've missed but it's still quite natural looking so if you wore black you could wear it out during the day.
As I said I used the oil for tricky bits which seemed to stop it sinking in as much and using an old towel I have for tan/dye wiped the excess off from my palms/between my fingers. I showered it off in the morning and was so happy with the results!
It's not MY natural tan colour but still looks very natural and golden better than St Tropez and I would say easier to apply even than the mousse!
It does seem to work with your base tan which in my view makes it look more natural so I still have strap marks and my face is darker than the rest of me but because the tan is so thick you can just touch up these whiter bits. I am definitely a fan and have already been persuaded to let my little sister use it for her prom along with all the other females in the house I just hope there's some left for me to top up!
