These moisturising lotions that have built in tanning agent..
I prefer real fake tan and then a layer of body moisturiser over the top once it has dried. I find this far less blotchy The cheap ones always smell and are blotchy and orange. If you fake tan then moisturise and shower in the morning I think it looks quite natural.
I like the daily ones as I find them easy to apply - when I'm doing a proper self tan I have to be more careful. I use whatever ones on offer (usually buy1 get1 free) and always buy the medium - dark skin one despite being quite fair as it gives quicker results. The colour always looks natural.
Should you apply every day? Doesn't that make you go darker and darker? Not sure if it's making my skin a bit orangey, as I said, I had a base tan, but think it was a bit browner than I am now. Kind of just want to maintain a light brown colour. Don't want to do fake tan as such, bad experiences in the past, but thought the moisturiser one would be more subtle.
