Sooooo me legs are a problem. I'm pale but can tan (but don't like sitting in the sun). I need a fake tan that's super easy to apply and won't make my legs look weirdly brown compared the rest of my body. I have fake tanned in the past and had problem with pathing looking areas on ankles and knees, any recommendations? I just want something to take the edge off the paleness!
Just started using skinny tan after a friend put some of hers on my thighs for me to try it out (in case it didn’t suit my skin which is really sensitive). I bought the tanning oil as it goes on really quickly and smoothly and applied it cautiously for the first time - it deepens over a few hours. The instructions suggest you dry wipe after applying over knees and ankles to avoid dark patches on drier skin areas, etc. It hasn’t come off on my white cotton sheets and looks a great colour (I’ve gone for the medium). It’s sold exclusively in Superdrug and online from skinny tan uk direct. The two Australian women founders appeared on dragons den about 4 years ago but I didn’t like their associated claims that the product could improve cellulite etc so I gave it a miss. However now having tried it, I really like it using it as a straightforward fake tan product.
I think the key thing is using a tanning mitt - I've found it makes a huge difference to how evenly I apply fake tan. I like vita liberty body blur which is wash off but really doesn't rub off, doesn't even come off in the shower without a good rub. Find San Tropez mouse very reliable and Coco Brown mouse from superdrug is almost as good and a lot cheaper.
