OP, how fair are you? I'm whiter than white and personally find St Tropez way too dark. I prefer a gradual tanner/moisturizer that I can build up. I love Palmers. It gives me a perfect color after even one application (2 on legs), but I don't go for the bronzed look because I like to still look like me. My main goal when I fake tan is to remove the blueish tinge, especially from my legs (yes, I am that white).

True, if your very fair gradual tanners are great.
There are a few on the market. palmers, dove, Vani-T etc so they are a moisturiser with a hint of tanning ingredient so you apply everyday or every second until u reach the desired colour.
Just make sure you use a normal mosturiser in between to keep your skin from drying out

I think one of the biggest things to consider here is... how well are you going to manage to cover your own back? If you've got someone trustworthy to do it, then that's awesome... but while I'm trained to tan other people, I absolutely suck at trying to tan myself, because I can't see what I'm doing or angle my arms correctly at my back.
That's definitely something to consider.
In all honesty, I would go to a salon you've heard great things about and hand over some money. It's not really that expensive - lots of places will tan you for $25.

I use the dove gradual tan. It's supposed to be part moisturiser, part fake tan. There are 2 strengths, one for light skin, one for darker skin. I buy it at coles.
I use the one for lighter skin, I rub it in all over, just like moisturiser. It is very light and natural looking.
If I want a bit more colour, I wait til the first layer dries, then do a second coat.
I get my husband to rub some on my back if I want that tanned too.
