There are so many - Olay has a new one out called everday sunshine and the Times last Saturday said the L'oreal Nutrishimmer was best ever ! What do you think? I went to Boots today and was bewildered. Will the self tan experts help guide me !!!

I saw an article in a weekend paper last week where they tested them. I can't remember the exact results but I think the Dove one did well. It would have been in the saturday Times or Guardian.

Hang on, I'll see if I can find it

Using Avon Skin So Soft at the moment. It is excellent. No streaks and really easy to use. I have never used fake tan or anything like it so was nervous! Have a wedding to go to at the weekend and didnt want milk bottle legs. They are tanning after just 2 days.
Best part is its only £3 a bottle!

Hi - the article was in The Times Body & Soul section and yes Dove was voted the best - & a bargain for about £5 I think

I really like Johnsons. Use it a lot and as long as you use a tanning mitt no streaks!

I've used the L'Oreal and the Dove and the L'Oreal one is much better, I found the Dove one started to smell horrid after a few hours.

I've used Johnsons, Dove, Clarins and Nivea and the one I'll be buying again is the Nivea. Smells nice, tans well and costs about £5. The clarins one is good too, but is £24!
