After a sunny Easter holiday I have been topping up my tan with Dove and Johnson's holiday skin. Both stink and make a mess of my towels and sheets. Honestly, my sheets look like the shroud of Turin...disgusting. And my DH hates the smell and coming any where near me when I'm "tanning"!!!wink
Love having a bit of colour, and am fair so have to go steady to avoid tango look, what am I doing wrong? Any alternatives?

I find the smell of this one much more bearable. My DH can't bear the smell of tan either. As a result I rarely use it but this stuff takes the edge off my bright white legs! I use the fair to medium one but I am very pale......

I second the st tropez one. I've used lots if fake tans but this one really doesn't smell.

The St tropes gradual tanner is very good and almost no smell. The best non-gradual one I have found though, is the Vita Liberata one. One in the range claims to last 2-3weeks and it certainly lasts longer than any other I have tried and fades beautifully. Also great because you can shower 3hrs after application so no need to sleep in it. Bit pricey but worth it IMO (especially when on offer in Boots!)

Righto to investigate in Boots tomorrow.

By far the best and barely any smell at all is the sienna x extremely natural tan in pink pump bottle, I have tried So many that end up making me smell like a digestive biscuit and this is the best!

I hate smelling like a digestive biscuit ;) Fake Bake gradual tanner doesn't have a strong smell.
