I've just seen a suggested facebook post on this self tan product claiming it has none of the usual fake tan smell. I have never found a product without that smell. Even when at first the smell isn't there , It always develops. Has anyone tried this product and was it ping free?
A very timely post which popped up just as I had finished liberally dousing myself in the stuff . I'm off on a sunny holiday tomorrow and gave in to the constant Facebook not-so-subliminal advertising in desperation. I am rubbish at applying fake tan and this is the first time I have risked it in years.... wish me luck! So far, I can report that it smells delicious and coconutty (DP commented on how nice I smelled!) and was seemingly easy to apply with a tanning mitt. I shall report further in the morning!
This all sounds promising - await GuinegfortGrey's update with much interest. I have used all sorts before but only on legs as they are slower to tan and I try not to spend too much time in the sun now.
I have the Clarins drops and used them last summer but still got the smell albeit weaker. I know that the smell is from the active ingredient- dha which is in all of the self tanners. An effective self tanner without dha would be a winner.
I have a history of self tanning disasters but managed fine with skinny tan. It smells ok, was waaaay less streaky than others I have tried. I am a muppet with it so someone a bit competent should be fine with it.
I have a tan!!!!! It looks natural and I haven't spotted any streaks yet which is quite extraordinary for me. Even my knees don't look too bad and they usually look well dodgy with fake tan on . I'm really pleased with the result and will definitely use again. Smell wise there is a hint of biscuityness if I sniff my skin close up but really nothing like as strong as previous tanners I have used. Thumbs up from here!
