    Definitely better than a tanning bed, but still sad that people won't leave themselves be.
    Yep you're right - I work for them and they definitely don't promote fake tan products.

    I totally agree with the 'give me white/ natural skin anyday" .. but I cant state for certainty that fake tan wont lead to cancer .. have you READ the ingredients??

    I seriously wonder if in 20 years we will be looking at a massive number of people who have a new/ different cancer - and it will be linked back to those bottles that people are pouring all over their skin, often more than once a week

    While yes, a tan looks lovely, the price is just too high for me .. I dont want to be orange, or expose my skin to cancer (via the sun or a sun bed) .. and I dont trust whats in those bottles

    I was thinking that too.

    Yeah not a fan of the orange skin. I saw a pretty girl in a cocktail dress a few days ago, not only did I notice her bc it's freezing here and the dress was tiny. But her skin was positively orange, with streak marks up the back of the legs.

    The problem with fake tan is people try and go too dark. Orange results from too much DHA (dihydroxiacetone- active tanning ingredient) on your skin. You should aim for no more than 3 shades darker than ur natural skin tone. A natural looking fake tan is acheivevable if done correctly....Less is more!!!

    Everywhere I see now when people have faked tanned its all orange?

    Is it a new colour thing? Like orange is the new brown?

    Just dont understand!
    I don't think age factors into it...im 21, never had a fake tan and take horrible delight in laughing at oompa loompas.
    Double points if you find one with duck lips :P

    Only one thing makes me cringe more than people wearing poorly or heavily applied fake tan and that's people who lay out in the sun to tan.
    When will this obsession end?

    I call them oompa loompahs too lol! When I explained awhile ago what one was to my dp he almost wet himself laughing. Usually to classify as a true oompa loompah she's got to have the day glow orange 'tan' giant eyelash extensions and the half looked after obvious hair extensions in either bottle white or dull black. Sexy....

    It's also a probable safe bet to say any given oompa loompah has worked for my real estate at one time or another. How sad.

    I don't usually watch MasterChef - but flicked the other night and one of the judges (forgotten his name) looked absolutely like an Oompa Loompa - made me wonder - who was his wardrobe person - surely they saw him prior to going on and should've put some lightening makeup on him prior to him going on!
