Any idea how long you can keep a can for and it still be ok? It doesn't say on the can! Think I bought the one I have at the end of last summer but nervous to use it just in case!

I've had mine for a lot lot longer than that and it's still fine smile

FloatyCat Thu 25-May-17 19:57:38

I've used a very very old one today, I don't think it goes off.

WeAreEternal Thu 25-May-17 20:01:33

I use it every day, I buy it in bulk because it works out substantially cheaper.
I've still got two can left over from my last batch, well one and a half....

I've been using it for many years and I can confidently say that the cans keep for years.
Just make sure you give it a really good shake.

Amazing thank you ladies 😁

MrsDoylesTeabags Thu 25-May-17 20:27:41

Oh I've seen this stuff everywhere and never used it, is it good?

CrispyBathTowel Thu 25-May-17 20:31:30

It's more like a foundation for legs rather than a fake tan imo MrsDoyle. I use it and then spray Rimmel Instant Tan over the top love both together

Weareeternal, I am in awe! You use it every day - I am soooo lazy and currently still in skinny jeans and ankle boots even though it was 26 degrees today because I can't be arsed to fake tan/airbrush - must do better!!

MrsDoylesTeabags Thu 25-May-17 20:41:56

I might give it a try, thanks for the tip

Ivory200 Thu 25-May-17 20:54:16

My current one is at least five years old. Don't use it that often, obviously, and it's fine.

KeiraKnightleyActsWithHerTeeth Thu 25-May-17 20:58:12

Can I ask how you apply this without painting your house with it?

CrispyBathTowel Thu 25-May-17 21:05:15

Cock one leg on the side of the bath and spray very close to the leg Kiera and then rub in. If you spray at any significant distance it does end up everywhere. That's how I do it mess free anyway.

Bodycare have it for half the price of Superdrug . I was comparing fake tan last week !

CremeDeSudo Thu 25-May-17 21:12:16

I do it outside wink

LaBuenaVida Thu 25-May-17 22:31:24

I've got the non spray one which you rub in like a lotion. Still has the same air brush effect as the spray. Oh - and I've had it for 2 years.

CremeDeSudo Sat 27-May-17 19:55:55

Pleased to confirm this stuff lasts ages! Still good smile

Bodypumpaddict Sat 27-May-17 19:57:34

Had forgotten about this stuff. Thanks for reminder

What happens if it rainsgrin. I've always wanted to have a go but worried about it washing off.

CremeDeSudo Sun 28-May-17 07:54:19

It's waterproof. You can only get it of by washing it off in the shower grin

dudsville Sun 28-May-17 08:00:38

Does it rub off on to clothing?

JustGettingStarted Sun 28-May-17 08:04:37

Does it rub off on bedsheets, say during sex? blush

Crispsheets Sun 28-May-17 08:09:06

It's still too orange for me. A pity as i like the effect.

CremeDeSudo Sun 28-May-17 08:15:20

Once it's dry nope. I always panic a little bit when I first apply it as it looks too dark/orange for me (am fairly pale) but once it's dried it's fine. Love the stuff.

IfYouGoDownToTheWoodsToday Sun 28-May-17 09:38:01

Thanks Creme, I will get some.

creamcheeseandlox Sun 28-May-17 17:42:01

I'm light olive skinned. What shade do I need?
