My face looks sad I don't wear foundation (though I do have some for occasions when I Can Be Arsed) .
Don't wear bronzer either .

I bought some St Tropez mousse last year for my legs (I'm not sure how it would do on my face though. I used a mitt to prevent the Orange Hand Giveaway) I'd need a spray or something I think.

Pale freckled skin, coppery (dyed ) hair , hazelly brown eyes.

What's out there that I could dabble with??

St Tropez do an Everyday Tan facial moisturiser which is absolutely fab. Perfect for us fair-skinned peeps as you can build it up gradually.

I've been using it for about 5 years or so I think and it's the one product I am completely loyal to.

I love this
It doesn't make you look brown, more of a healthy glow. it's a tiny bottle but I've had the same one since April.

I second the Clarins drops (have in fact repurchased, I love them that much), but the St Tropez mousse works well for face if that's what you have anyway. Moisturise really really well before you go to bed. Put a cherry size blob of mousse on your hand and dot on cheeks, forehead, etc. Smooth it in gently. Don't rub. Wash hands. Go to bed. If you're wary, just be sure to moisturise really well beforehand as that'll create a bit of a barrier.

I'll give the mousse a go tomorrow (so if I look Tango-ed I can spend Sunday triple cleansing )

I saw some drops on QVC that you add to moisturiser, might have a search ...

I bought some Leighton Denny Sunsationals last year. It came out of the bottle cow pooh khaki. I was confused to say the least but it wasn't something I'd dare to use on my face.

I use the mousse or any old fake tan I'm using but mix it with a little moisturiser for face.

The Bondi one from superdrug us brilliant. It's a slow developer so very natural.
I use the body one all year round too, it makes my fat look smaller wink

I bought the Clarins drops in the summer but feel a bit self conscious wearing it in the winter as it does give me quite an obvious colour. I wonder if I am using too much or applying it wrong?
When you tan your face should you apply it to neck too?

I really rate Lancome flash bronzer, gives a lovelt glow and never streaks. I've used it for years.
