Instant fake tan

I know it was done before- but once more please?
fed up with smelly fake tans so what can I use on legs and arms when the sun shines one day?

St Tropez any good?

Needs to stay put but wash off easily, and look natural- not too dark.

I use the Rimmel Sunshimmer spray when I need to get my legs out at short notice. It's actually really good. Not orange at all, smells nice and washes off fine. You can layer it over proper fake tan to deepen the colour.

Oooh thanks for posting both of you, that's good to know - I can't be arsed with fake and had never thought of using this kind of thing to prevent my legs from blinding passers-by give me a hint of colour grin

I am using Fake Bake beyond bronze, in light. No smell and it's really subtle on my pale skin. It's on offer atm in Superdrug.

This version of it is.. It's called Beyond Bronze and is in a flat fuscia coloured tube. I think it's available in light/ dark and shimmer/matte but only seen the shimmer version.

I buy cheap foundations in darker colours and use these on my legs. Evens out the skintone too.

The Rimmel Sunshimmer is really good. Depending on your colouring they do different shades and you can also choose between matte and shimmer. Washes off really easily.
