Top tips
The best way to use these tans is to mix some with your body moisturiser. You'll get instant colour while also taking care of your moisturising needs.

Remember to wash hands after applying your tan to ensure any residual product is washed away.

Keep your tan topped up by reapplying every few days while remembering to give your body a good buff every 10 days to completely remove colour build-up and start wth a fresh application.
