Battle of the Fake Tans

L-R Laurens way, Chanel, St Tropez, Sun Kissed & Fake Bake.

I have to admit, I am a fake tan addict. When i'm not being unbelievably lazy, I probably tan about 2 - 3 times a week. I have tested them all! However the Items pictured have been my top fave for the past few years. (Reviews seen here and here) I didn't know, until my ex Boyfriend informed me, that fake tan reacts differently to your skin at different times of the month due to your hormones - hence my need to have 5 different tans on hand at all times. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but it makes sense as sometimes I am super brown and other times i'v covered myself in tan and nothing has happened. 

Overall Winner - St Tropez - The easiest to apply by far. The colour isn't too dark, but gives you a nice glow.

Best for Face - Chanel - It smells amazing and the colour comes out perfectly - hello a week in the sun in 10 minutes (review later this week).

Best for Instant - Sun Kissed - Strapped for time and heading out with the girls - this tan is perfect and instant. It does continue to get darker as the night goes on, so you have to be careful with how much you apply. I usually go with one coat overall and then an extra coat for my legs.

I always use Fake Bake, I like the fact it is such a natural colour and contains nothing harmful xx

Xen Tan is my favourite, it seems to apply better and give a nicer colour on me
