Last year I tried these and was fine for a few days then started 'peeling' off. I rang the helpline number on the back of the bottle and the lay said I needed to moisturise. So I understand the principle, exfoliate before applying tanning moisturiser. But if I exfoliate the next time before applying cream, will that just not take off the tan that's built up? I hope I'm making sense. Can someone talk me through this please, I'm very confused.
exfoliating when you have already "tanned" will take some of it off but not all.
You shouldn't need to re-exfoliate very often ime.
Once a week maybe?
If you moisturise in between applications of tanning it should make it last longer.
Personally, I don't get on with ST moisturisers- Johnsons one made me very orange- I went back to my Clarins gel andmix 50/50 with body lotion and it's great- redo every 3rd day after a couple of applications, just to get rid of the lily white pallor.
Evansmummy -Oh, I just had this too - with the Johnsons - looks good for first few days, then I get little clumpy bits, and horrid dark bits sinking into the lines and creases on my neck! And I'm slightly orange...
So is the Garnier one much much better than the Johnsons, wanderingsheep?
Thanks for that. No pools, we're on a beach holiday, so no chlorine. That takes care of that. Do I only exfoliate if it streaks then? Is it not better to preempt it with exfoliating in between? I am such a novice!
To answer the OP - yes to a degree, but after you have repeated the whole process several times, I find the exfoliation has less of a negative effect.
When I clicked on this thread I was hoping someone had found a miricle proiduct which did all 3 jobs in one go! Naive, I know. If a cellulite busting ingredient whichworked could also be added to the mix, it would be a best-seller!
