No7 is No1 for Fake Tan!

     Being naturally lily white, it will come as no surprise that I am a dedicated fan of one of the beauty world's holiest grails - fake tan.
St. Tropez, Fake Bake, Ambre Solaire - you name it, I've slapped it on in the quest to become slighly less see-through. 

     For a while I'd been using Fake Bake's mousse, and got along with it just fine. That was until I received a £5.00 off voucher for No7. As I was in need of a new bottle of tan, but didn't fancy paying the twenty-odd pounds for Fake Bake, I decided to put my No7 voucher to good use and purchase their 'Perfectly Bronzed - Quick Dry Tinted Lotion'. 
     To sum up how I feel about this tan in four words - I'll never look back.
That might sound like a flippant comment, but this affordable tan is the absolute perfect shade for me, (I bought 'Medium/Dark'.) 
     After a few hours of applying, I was already left looking like I'd had a week in the Bahamas, but in a good way, not in a I'm-so-mahogany-you-can-only-see-my-teeth-way.
      I apply it with a tanning mitt, and in contrast to the likes of the St. Tropez and copycat cheapy St. Moritz, it doesn't fall out on to the mitt in a wet gloop of mousse. 
     It's more like applying moisturiser, but it's tinted, making application ten times easier. 
Another thing I like about this fake tan is the longevity it has on my skin. I'm not sure if it was just me, but I found that St. Tropez only lasted until I had a shower, and I was left with only a very slight bit of colour. Not what you'd expect from 30 quid a bottle...
     Anyway, I can't sing No7's praises enough, it's even on offer at the moment at £9.95...bargain. You can buy it here.

Are there any other fake tans out there that I should know about?
