    Default Self tanner for sensitive skin?

    Can anyone recommend one? I'm not a big fake tanner but have a wedding to go to soon and would like to look a little more bronzed! Just on my legs really. I don't tend to expose them as much as my arms so I'm majorly uneven when it comes to colour!

    I love the idea of the gradual tanning moisturisers but I haven't yet found one that doesn't make me break out in eczema. I've used the spray on bronzers in the past but struggle to get an even coverage, and the next day - yep, eczema.

    Getting a full on spray tan doesn't really appeal to me either.

    Have you tried the Vani-T bronzing custard? Would probably be great for your skin

    I actually find gradual tanners a bit crap and I've tried them all. I get eczema and psoriasis and just generally have rather pathetic, whiny skin that hates life. I use Bondi Sands foam in light (bonus is it goes on brown so you can see where you've missed). I always have to wait about 12 hours after shaving and about an hour after showering to put any fake tan on though, otherwise I get a lovely rash which looks really hot when it's all blotchy all over my legs 😑

    Hahaha @Moxy, story of my life well & truly. Come to think of it I probably don't wait long enough after shaving to apply mine. I have heard Bondi Sands is good.

    Also anything involving custard is a winner with me 😜

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    If you can possibly shave your legs at night and apply the tan lotion the next morning that may help. Also make sure you use a self tan applicator mitt, much more even coverage. I like the Bondi Sands foam. Not sure if it is ok with sensitive skin though.

    Default Self tanner for sensitive skin?

    I have really sensitive skin and I use an awesome fake tan called Chocolate Sun. Natural ingredients and it literally smells exactly like chocolate. I kid you not. I've tried so many and this is the only one that my skin can handle and the colour is great. They make 2 different shades - light and dark. I use the light a couple of days in a row and it's perfect. I'll attach a pic of me wearing it (I'll probably delete it later ). You can mostly see the colour of it on my neck and chest here.
