self tan + body lotion

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Well as far as I can see the new way to self tanning is products that are body lotions with self tan. Anyway I was wondering since there are more brands of this type on the market can anyone recomend a good one?

I have used the johnston one and its ok just wouldn't mind seeing what other brand where like.

Olay have one that also contains SPF 15 which is good, has anyone tried this?

Also Nivea have one.

God decisions :banghead:

Recomendations please!

    I used the Johnsons one, it's alright.

    My mate used the Dove one and she looked like she'd been on a two week holiday in the Carribean after about 3/4 uses.

    Again, the Dove one. It smells better than the Johnsons one too.

    Ha... for advice on this come into my beauty course.... not one of us is our natural colour and after several attempts we've been split - 7 vote Dove, 7 vote Johnsons (and 1 votes Wilkos Own Brand.... but in all honesty she looks orange)

    I'm on Team Dove,v but I think its personal preference

    ive only tried the johnsons one and i thought it was good.. although i am very pale so i guess pretty much anything would show a difference on me. the only problem i had was that i didnt actually realise it was gonna give me a proper tan, i was thinking it was more along the lines of a natural glow kinda thing so i wasnt really very careful when i applied it, i just randomly slapped it on. and ended up with patches. so for anyone that is going to try it, exfolliate and all that and do it properly!

    ive used both. The dove one smells better and gives slightly more of a tan than the johnsons one.
    I prefer it.

    my friend used the dove one and it left orange marks on her

    the wilkinsons own brand one works fine and doesnt go orange

    got no experience of the johnsons one only the excessive price tag

    I have tried both the Dove and Johnsons. The Johnsons one gave me the little bit of colour that I wanted and I prefer it.

    the Johnsons one is fantastic if you ask me, perfect for this time of year when too much colour will just look fake and you're still exfoliating winter crustiness.
