Here are my favourite products for achieving a beautifully natural looking self-tan…

Garnier Summer Body 

Recommended: Self-tanning Superstars

A moisturising lotion with a hint of tanning ingredient to gradually build a natural-looking tan.  Enriched with natural extract of apricot, this light, fast-absorbing formula is easily applied and smells like summer in a bottle.  A great starting point for any self-tanning newbie.  Available in either light or dark (deep sun-kissed) shades.  Gradually build your tan by applying daily.

Good to know  Personally I find both the Garnier and the Dove products give a good result.  I have fair skin, but use the darker shades in both as it allows me the shade I want quicker.  However, if you are pale I would suggest the lighter shades as a starting point.  I switch between the two products regularly.  For me, it usually comes down to which is on offer.  I would suggest smelling the products before purchase – you might prefer the scent of one over the other.

Clarins Delicious Self Tanning Cream

Recommended: Self Tanning Superstars

This was an emergency duty-free buy for me a few years ago and it’s the happiest spot purchase I’ve ever made.  Firstly I love the smell – it’s quite fudge-like.  Secondly it’s caramel in colour so you can easily see where you’ve applied it and provides an instant golden-boost.  It’s almost fool-proof and develops quickly.  And just to take this product to one step above brilliant – you can apply it to your face too!

St Tropez Classic Bronzing Mousse

Recommended: Self Tanning Superstars

An oldie but a goldie.  This multi-award winning self-tanner is – in my humble opinion – still the daddy of the self-tanning world.  Granted, the application requires more attention and be prepared to wake up with your bedsheets covered in it – but it gives a great long lasting tan.  This product also includes a colour tint to the mousse so you can see where you’re applying it.  I highly recommend the use of a tanning mitt, getting the mousse off of the palm of your hands can be a pain. However, I will say it’s a little pain for a massive self-tan gain.

UTAN & Tone Nourishing Night Creme

Recommended: Self Tanning Superstars

I am in love with this self-tanning night creme.  It provides good skin hydration in a non-greasy way and contains premium skincare ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants.  Applied in place of your usual night cream – a few times a week – the organic tanning agent develops overnight and adapts to your skin tone to give you the closest looking natural tan possible.  It also contains an ingredient to fight against blackheads.  Be prepared to wake up in the morning with a great base for your make-up.
