Good luck trying to get hold of some!! Hope you can!

Otherwise we need to find someone on here who works for Tesco/Sainsburys/Boots who can nab a load from the stockroom

Oh gdg I am so worried though as last time I used it it was so streaky around my feet!

Gobbledigook · 08/05/2005 18:58

BH - I've not done my legs or feet and I know they are quite hard to do without streaking aren't they? I've only done my arms, chest area and upper back/shoulders and I've been OK so far - no streaks. Def exfoliate your legs and round your ankles and then just put a bit on - it doesn't make you really dark overnight so you should be OK!

i dont exfoliate and its fine, just rub it in , dont put too much on your hands when doing the feet area and then get a damp cloth and gently wipe around the ankle and heels as this skin is drier than the rest of the foot and it (fake tan in general ) tends to go all dirty looking in this area (same at elbows ) as long as u throughly rub in it you should not get streaks , its sold as a lotion. good luck

Sold out everywhere around here! At least it gives me time to get my legs waxed I suppose.

Gobbledigook · 09/05/2005 11:22

BH - did you do it? Any streaks?

marialuisa · 09/05/2005 11:45

Bought some on Saturday and I'm addicted! It's fantastic, I've always been too much of a wimp to use fake tan because of the riskof streaks etc. but I love this product. DH is planning on using some too because he reckons his legs will scare people if he wears shorts for running/cycling ATM.

Got mine bogoff today at Boots, can't wait to try it

hoxtonchick · 09/05/2005 11:47

this thread is seriously tempting....

soapbox · 09/05/2005 11:48

I'm tempted too!

Off to Boots at lunchtime I think!

I usually swear by ecotan but will give this one a try!

How much does it cost??

albert · 09/05/2005 11:55

Based on the messages on Friday I rushed off and bought some but on Saturday morning I looked like a tangoed zebra, it was dreadful! How do I get rid of the stripes, Monday now and they're as bad as ever! I did it straight after the shower but didn't exfoliate, maybe I should try that next time. No idea if mine is the light or dark version, it doesn't say but then I'm in Italy and everyone is olive skinned so I guess it must be the dark.

ja9 · 09/05/2005 19:19

Alright alright, stop going on about it!!!!! This thread was just too much and i've just nipped to sainsburys and got some. Hope you guys don't have shares in the stuff or are on commission etc.!

sammac · 09/05/2005 19:33

I managed to get some in Sainsbury's too, so will try later tonight. I hope it's good cos I bought 4, well it was bogof!

lou33 · 09/05/2005 19:37

i want some now

Gobbledigook · 09/05/2005 19:40

It's good but it may take a few days of putting it on to notice a difference. After 3-4 days my arms were noticeably browner than my legs (where I hadn't put it) and still are. It looks really natural as well - I'm really chuffed with it - it's miles better than the St Tropez I paid £30 for the other week!

Blossomhill · 09/05/2005 19:41

Well I put some on last night and it looks really good today. Legs are a bit streaky but onceI keep going over them I am convincing myself the streaks will blend in. My arms, chest, back and face have a nice glow though. Very impressed!

nutcracker · 09/05/2005 19:42

How did you put it on your back ??

Blossomhill · 09/05/2005 19:44

Well I cross my arms over my shoulders and do it that way. I do try and get dh to do it but he was busy tonight!!!

Gobbledigook · 09/05/2005 19:45

BH - must get dh to do my back too! I do the top part that you can normally see above a top but the rest of my back looks white!! Ha ha!!

nutcracker · 09/05/2005 19:46

Hmmm i'll have to get dp to do mine too but then i'll quickly have to develop a headache me thinks

Gobbledigook · 09/05/2005 19:47

Oh yes Nutty - make sure he doesn't think it's like a massage leading to....

anchovies · 09/05/2005 19:47

I went everywhere today after seeing this thread and everywhere had sold out. Tried 2xboots, sainsburys, superdrug and tesco. Was very disappointed!

Blossomhill · 09/05/2005 19:47

See I used to use Ambre Solaire after sun self tanning lotion which is very similar and just used to use it on nights out. This I think I will use everyday!

Gobbledigook · 09/05/2005 19:48

Me too BH - I've got 3 bottles now which I hope will last me the summer. It's nigh on impossible to get hold of any round here now.
