Works like magic to tan your skin the same shade it would become in the sun.
Fake Tanners on Trial: Famous Dave's Tanning Mousse
"Best for instant colour with minimal mess."
"This tanning mousse is really easy to apply and goes on dark brown so you can see exactly where you are putting it. When I had a shower the next day I was left with a nice natural golden tan which was impressive. It absorbed quickly and actually has a nice scent, not biscuity like some other self tanners. I would highly recommend this product."

Four of the Best Fake Tans
#1. 5/5 Rating: Famous Dave's Tanner Self Tan Wipes
"Amazing. You can top up your tan in an instant and they were so soft on my skin. Individually wrapped, they're easy to pop into your handbag for touch-ups. No mess and no fuss. I've told all my friends about these."
The Easy Peasy Tan
"You can never guarantee the sun on holiday, but you can always fake a tan. Of course, the classic in-a-bottle formula tends to leave most of us browned off in the wrong way - it's sticky, it's streaky, it skinks and it's liable to leak all over your white D&G evening wear. Luckily, there's a new solution: stash a pack of Famous Dave's self tan wipes in your luggage. Tear it open on arrival, smear it on and in just three to four hours, you'll be looking golden brown - whatever the weather."
