Is there such a thing? I'm sure I can't have imagined it up. I want a suncream which will gradually give me a hint of brown - I'm very fair and am not after a full on fake tan.
Can't find anything on Boots website but maybe I'm not using the right search words (I find their search engine pretty poor...)

Try Clarins or Clinique.

sweetmonkey - is the nivea this self tan one? Or is there one with an spf that I can use as a suncream too?

actually ive just had a look at my one and its an after sun with self tan in it. sorry my mistake. comes in a blue tube but is def good to top up a tan

prettybird - is this the Clinique one? I think a spray will be too fiddly.
I don't think what I want exists! Ideally a cream but with such a small amount of tan that it doesn't matter how evenly you get it on. Predominatly a suncream with spf.
I wish I could remember who I thought it was. Lancaster perhaps?

Ah - that sounds like it could be good too. I'll look out for it!

sweetmonkey Mon 02-May-05 15:57:29

just had a look on the boots website but couldnt see it. i'll have a look out though and let you know if i find anything

The Clarins one is reviewed here along with some others. Suspect it might be too much of a self tanner for your purposes.

Maybe the aftersun with a wee bit of self tanning stuff is the way to go for you!

lancaster used to do a spf 8 with self tan - in fair.

it was brill (i have very fair skin) but they have stopped it now - now is spf 4 with a medium tan, nowhere near as good

Although it doesn't say it does I always find I go darker when I use piz buin rather than any other lotion. A giveaway is that unless I wash my hands my palms are also darker than usual, but I m really fair

Sunblock degrades dha quite quickly so any of these won't be a high factor.
