    If I use any I use the moisterising (sp?) creams that build up the tan, I find that they work the best. I have used proper tan stuff before but I always end up going orange and streaky! lol

    I don't use it because where I grew up everyone was bright orange and I hated it so I have a nightmare I would use it and then end up bright orange.

    I definately would not recommend a spray tan. I had one done last week and it was awful, I woke up looking like an orange and then it went patchy.

    I would use J17 sun bronzer, its really good and its a gradual process. No streaks or patches.

    Sometimes you have to just have a little pair of panties on and a woman will spray you, some places have booths now that spray you automatically i prefer these :) xxx

    Well i had this woman come to my house. She had like a pop up tent that i had to stand in, it was very strange. I just wore a thong.

    The tan was all over my bedding the next morning, it was terrible

    I use it, especially on my legs. Used to us Dove but my friend suggested 'Fake don't Bake' and it's from BodyCare and only costs about £1.85 for a tube. It's the best fake tan I have ever used. No streaks and the colour is visible within a couple of hours. And it doesn't smell as bad as other fake tans. :D

    i use the moistorises which gradually build up the tan... loreal and garnier are my favorites...never get orange, just a lovely sunny colour :D
    I use it mostly on my face as otherwise i look so ill.... sometimes on my whole body if i feel like it :D

    I used to be a dancer and tried self applied fake tans and spray tans applied by booth and by hand. The booth was awfull! I complained and got a free one applied by hand. When getting a spray tan it's really important to wear loose clothing and be aware it will mark your clothes and bed clothes, but will wash out though. I recommend getting it done in the evening because it is easier to loaf at home in comfy clothes and just go to bed, washing it off next day.
    Beware if it's raining the day you get it done!

    In the end I used sunbeds and realised just how bad the fake tan colour was (even the stuff I thought looked natural at the time). I do not believe any fake tan gives a natural colour. But I do think some of the gradual tan creams are ok.

    Oh, and fake tan stinks!! I ended up smelling like stale biscuits. Mmmm...yummy!
