I have black hair so although I'm white i do have a natural tan. I don't fake tan for a sun kissed look, i like to look brown!
I normally use St Tropez or Fake Bake Extreme Tan. I applied this product last night using latex gloves, although it has a brown colour to it which means that you can see where you are applying it it's still very difficult to apply. Its quite a dry/sticky lotion so you have to rub it in very quickly otherwise it leaves big brown marks. I cannot get used to rubbing it in on my chest as it drys as soon as you put it on!
After applying you are meant to leave 3 hours before you shower (i left it overnight). Also it would be impossible to apply this before a night out or before going out anywhere as the brown colour to the fake tan makes you look very dirty. After i'd left the tan on overnight i showered in the morning and like it says on the bottle the "instant tan" (brown colour) washes off. I expected this colour to wash off and underneath the dirty colour to be left a lovely brown. Unfortunately this was not the case, when i stepped out of the shower i was as white as i was before I applied the product!
On the bottle it says that you should apply the product with your hands then wash your hands afterwards. I thought this might have been my problem as i used gloves. I have just applied my second coating of the tan using my hands. I applied the tan and then went to wash my hands - they were a reddy sort of colour and i've just had to scrub with exfoliator for 25 min before the reddy colour even faded and i know their going to be orange in the morning!
Overall a terrible product, and i'm really annoyed after spending £25.99 on the product. And that my hands are going to be orange on saturday night whilst i'm going to be white!
