i have an old one from superdrug and its ok but i wonder if anyone has tried a really good one?
i've looked at the st tropez instant tan wash off and luxe dry oil (is this just a bronzer?) and also, bondi sands summer bronze wash off.

(there are quite a few brands i won't use as they test on animals).

I use a St Tropez instant tan lotion and apply it with one of those mitt things. It's good stuff & doesn't streak.

Sali Hughes also did a column on instant tans recently, which may be helpful:

Trilogy is a highly ethical brand and their bronzer is really nice to use. It smells nice too, not like some of them.

The Sally Hansen legs stuff is great all over applied with a mitt in vigorous circle motions. Spray the mitt not the body. Doesn't come off on sheets or clothes, and washes off in shower or with face cloth so you can't go too wrong. The darker shimmer ones are best. Brilliant result and you can have the shorts on in 3 mins and no pasty white legs.

Thank you smile

Ordered some St tropez to try first (as it's on offer in superdrug at the moment ).

Would I need to moisturise beforehand or are they quite moisturising anyway?

I really like the L'Oreal sublime legs BB cream. It's not patchy, lasts well and washes off easily.
