This fantastic fake tan takes about 8 hours to develop fully and leaves behind a deep holiday glow on the skin. It’s ideal for people who like a rich colour. Plus its anti-cellulite formula helps to tone and smooth the skin. Once the colour has developed, simply wash off the product off your skin in the shower and pat dry.

Combining Aloe Vera and cocoa butter, this luxurious tanning cream also takes up to 8 hours to develop. However, it doesn’t need to be washed off. Apply in the same way as a moisturiser and watch your sun-kissed glow develop over the course of the day.
