Bought this today as apparently really good and want to have brown legs.

I got the one for fairer skin.

Anyone else used it?

come on, help me out please

It is v good! I tend to put a wee bit of body lotion on knees and other dry bits just before application and haven't had a problem. That was with the original one though.

Good Luck!

I clicked on this hoping you'd used it and were going to say it's good stuff. My legs are blueish white milk bottles - yuk!! So I'm looking for one that looks ok on fairer skin.

Go on go on I dare you - take the plunge and let us know

Blossomhill Mon 15-May-06 14:53:26

Thanks babaworshipper

Tinygang - am going to use tonight and will report back tomorrow <eeek>

Blossomhill Mon 15-May-06 15:56:01

babaworshipper - do u spray and then rub in?

babaworshipper Mon 15-May-06 15:59:05

I do indeed! make sure you really scrub your hands afterwards and use as little as you can on dry bits. I spray then blend towards dry bits seems to work!

have u got dark skin as I am quite fair?

babaworshipper Mon 15-May-06 16:18:44

Not sure tbh. I am told I am pale but am olive rather than milky iyswim. Dark brown eyes and hair. I do tan well if given the chance and have never burned. Certainly one go of the normal one is plenty to look tanned.

I have been trying the johnstons one for fair skin with some success but it is taking ages to build up so have bought the dark one to try.

You might want to keep a dry facecloth handy to help you hold onto the bottle to spray it. I seem to go back and forward between hands and it gets slippy!

Only reason trying johnstons is because my small (2) keeps charging in mid app of the loreal one and was looking a bit streaky in parts!

I sound similar to you then baba.

I use johnson and use a tanning mitt so that it doesn't streak. Just can't do backs of legs.

Also I use sally Hansen leg make up for one off occassions. Really good.

babaworshipper Mon 15-May-06 16:25:43

Spray one fab for back of legs! It sprays upside down sideways the lot. Must try a tanning mitt, any suggestions?

babaworshipper Mon 15-May-06 16:26:34

Never tried Sally hansen hmmmm, new product to try gleam in eyes!

Blossomhill Mon 15-May-06 16:31:35

I got my mitt in the body shop. Never have streaks using it. You can't help but streak when using your hands but with this you don't.

babaworshipper Mon 15-May-06 16:35:11

Thanks for that will give it a try!

Blossomhill Mon 15-May-06 21:18:46

festiveface Mon 15-May-06 21:34:44

is that expensive?

Blossomhill Mon 15-May-06 22:01:20

Can I just say that the Ambre Solaire is on offer and is £5.99, instead of £9.99. Asked the woman who worked in Superdrug and she said it is one of the top sellers and sells out even when not on promotion. So I took that as a good sign!

notasheep Mon 15-May-06 22:03:05

Ambre Solaire is Boots
Boots is Ambre Solaire

Blossomhill Mon 15-May-06 22:06:01


I bought mine in Superdrug!

notasheep Mon 15-May-06 22:09:24

You know what i mean!!!!!

babaworshipper Tue 16-May-06 14:36:47

And?? How are the legs this morning?

Blossomhill Tue 16-May-06 16:19:36

baba - well they are slightly streaky but I have only myself to blame as used hands to rub in instead of mitt

I was really impressed with colour though so have reapplied using the old faithful mitt

update tomorrow!
