Can anyone recommend a gradual tanner that doesn't smell of fake tan? I used to use the garnier one but I have started to be put off with the apricot smell so I bought the dove one but couldn't sleep last night for the fake tan smell.

St.Tropez gradual tan in a mousse is v.good. Also dries quickly.

Oh thank you, I didn't think anyone had replied to this.

I've tried loads and to be honest I think they all have a fake tan smell so I decided to stop with the gradual one (where it needed replies repeatedly so the smell was there constantly) and went for a one application one so I'd only have to deal with the smell once. I tried one of the new rapid ones (vita Liberata) that you are supposed to leave on for 1-3 hrs. I'm super pale so after 3 hrs I had a subtle glow. But this meant I could apply it (a mousse and super easy with a mitt even for a novice like me) in the evening and shower off before bed time. So no sleeping in fake tan! A morning shower as usual and there was no discernible tan smell. Vita Liberata isn't too bad for tan smell anyway (but it's definitely not odour free like they claim). I found once gave me a nice colour on my arms. I did two evenings in a row on my legs. Apparently the Fake Bake rapid one works better for a darker colour so I might try that next.

St tropez shower tan doesn't smell because you shower it off smile

I really like this one which is DHA-free:

However I'm not sure how dark it will make you (if you want to be very tan). I prefer to just 'un-whiten' so have never tried to use intensely or several days in a row.
