If you’ve noticed that everyone looks a bit yellow in this unexpected sunshine, its probably the fake tan effect. The first ray of sunshine means out with last year’s everyday tanners, meaning a slow build from pale yellow to an unconvincing dark yellow. Either that sallow effect or the hideous orange. I found myself at a beauty show in the company of a couple of PRs who had so overdone it on the St Tropez or whatever, that I now always call them the Tangerine Twins. Even the palms of their hands were teracotta. Finding a self tan that actually looks like you had a Nice mini-break is difficult. My failsafe self tan that always miraculously turns a shade that is utterly realistic is Sisley Self Tan Spray. It’s horribly expensive at around 48 pounds, but really it’s the only one that looks completely natural and never streaks. I’m a self-tan dummy in that I can almost never get a streak free look for some reason, so if it works for me, its a sure sign that it will work for everyone else.

One of the girls in the office had the fortune to try some proferm Afterglow a few weeks ago and she is still raving about it. Non streak, deep even tan and it has some good moisturising qualities as well apparently. However, the biggest compliment to her were the number of compliments and enquiries about her holiday she got after trying it. It’s not cheap though (sold in SpaceNK) but then can you put a price on unlimited compliments?
Yes Proferm is my next favourite – most self tans make my skin quite dry but Proferm doesn’t at all. Both Sisley and Proferm are really pricey but so exceptionally good probably worth spending the cash on unless streaks are in this season?
