I'm using the St Tropez gradual this summer. Best thing about it is that it does not smell of fake tan, at all. Worst thing about it is that it's quite unpredictable and gradual seems to mean "slow" rather than "diluted". Eg I put it on in the morning and it looks alright that evening, but can continue developing overnight and I've woken up a couple of times to surprise streaky ankles. To be safe I now use over another moisturiser which seems to defeat the object somewhat.
I had high hopes for the St tropez one but in fact I find the waiting three mins thing a bit of a faff. Also I think I'd really need to apply it every day to see any real effect. So it's back to Garnier for me.
I've just started using a new Avon one. It smells nice and leaves a slight shimmer behind. The colour has developed over the last week as very golden and not at all orange. It's meant to be 8 in 1 but no idea what the 8 things are ! it's sort of given my legs especially an air brushed effect.
