St Tropez Self Tan Luxe Dry Oil
Truly this is one of the easy-peasiest ways to apply a self-tanner we've ever had the pleasure of encountering. Pleasure? With a self-tanner? Absolutely. It glides on as a shimmering dry oil, sinking in almost immediately, and leaving skin with a touch of instant colour.
It's incredibly pleasantly-scented (whiffs of lemongrass, we got), and the colour's amazing. We applied it overnight, bathed in the morning - and were left with a truly realistic glow which lasted for about five days. It's also done us proud in a couple of bare-leg emergencies, as the temperature's soared and tights have been thrown to the spring breeze.
For deeper colour, just reapply at the time - or as required.
Best, as with all self-tans, on skin that's been pre-moisturised - and of course we buffed away at the bits that colour can build up on, like heels and elbows.
But all in all one of summer's shining stars, we predict.
