Being extremely pale and burning in the sun, fake tanning is my go to option for achieving a little colour. As I naturally never go brown I prefer to use a product that gives a subtle natural colour - enter St Tropez Gradual Tan Mousse - a lightweight mousse with conditioning aloe vera to give a natural golden tan which I kindly received from Hairtrade.com, a leading UK online retailer of hair extensions, hair care and beauty products.
Before applying any tan product, I exfoliate my skin to get rid of any dry patches. I also use an intense body moisturiser for a few days before tanning in order for the tan to work better.
St Tropez mousse is colourless so you have to make sure that you've applied to every area. I bought a tanning mitt from ebay, which makes applying much easier. As the formula of the mousse is light it sinks in and dries fairly quickly. I use this at night as it takes a few hours to develop. It does have a slight fake tan smell, which I don't really mind too much.
The result is an even subtle golden shade but you do have to be careful when applying to hands and feet - I find these are the areas that can look patchy.
Overall, I'm pleased with the results and its definitely a product to consider if you're looking for a subtle natural tan
