I'm hoping someone might have some advice for me. I am really eczema prone so am totally paranoid about what I put on my skin and have never really used tan products. I wouldn't even be considering it but am getting married in a couple of months and would really like to be a bit browner with the whole white dress situation. I have skin that naturally tans easily but haven't seen the sun for about 18mths so am pretty pale atm. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've seen San Tropez have a sensitive range, has anyone tried it? Or, can't believe I'm even considering it, would a couple of sunbeds as a one off be a completely idiotic thing to do? (I know the answer really). Any helpful ideas would be really, really appreciated.
I have sensitive skin though no skin disorders. I have tried every tan under the sun and the one I found I have no allergies to and no weird smell emanating from me is Vita Liberata. It is available in Debenhams comes in mousse or gel and I can't recommend it enough. It is a lovely colour and totally fool proof. Doesn't streak but can stain your bra
Thanks so much for replies. The paraben free stuff sounds promising as been told be dermatologist to avoid parabens. Think I'm going to try to get some samples and patch test. I'll post back with verdicts if I remember!
I have sensitive skin and it handles the normal St Tropez range very well. St Tropez is the only brand that I find looks natural and fades well (rather than patchy). I have found with some other tanning brands (I'm looking at you Garnier) that one of the ingredients REALLY irritated my skin - possibly one of the AHAs they add?
