I love st tropez auto bronzant lotion, its the only tan i use but its getting expensive now.
Can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced fake tan that comes out coloured so u can tell where its goin. Not a wash off one please or gradual one.

Clarebear1 sorry to hijack but have you ever used the St Tropez Tan Intensifier. Dp went to TKMaxx today for the first time and went a bit crazy. He saw the St Tropez and the price tag saying it was £4.99 from £15.00, recognised the bottle from the cupboard and bought me some. But I usually only use the Light-Medium Everyday body lotion and wonder what this one (medium) will do. Maybe okay for my holiday?

Sorry for hijack!

Fake Bake is in the sale on the asos website I think....

Aerotan is absolutely fabulous I wouldn't buy anything else. It's an aerosol spray and you just rub it in, spraying as little or as much as you want. It's instant and washes off at the end of the day.

I saw it being used on This morning a few years ago and contacted the programme to find out where I could buy it.

This is the only tanning product I can use as I have a reaction to others that develop over time. The only drawback is you will find it on the lining of your clothes and if you go to bed with it on you will see it on the sheets the next day, but it does wash off.

Just google Aerotan for stockists. It's about £15 and it usually lasts me 2 - 3 months, using it 2 - 3 times a week

monkeysmama- i saw that in tkmaxx actually, didnt know much about it tho. That just helps to keep the tan longer doesnt it?
They also do 12ml bottle of st tropez for £7.99! £18 in boots!
I still want to find cheaper though so any other suggestions please anyone
