Fake tanning seems to have had a bit of a beauty reboot recently. Loads of brands are coming out with express tans - cutting the wait time of tanning to just one hour. Armed with a mitt and few hours before I was due to jet out to Portugal I put the St Tropez Express Tan to the test.

One quick layer all over the body and your done. Fast absorbing, easy to see guide colour and minimal effort application. It has a slight fake tan smell to it but seasoned faux glowers have come to expect that. One hour produces a lovely light faux glow but leave it on for three hours and you'll be left with a deep dark bronzed look. I left mine on for three hours as I like a deep tan - I did feel like it could be a bit darker but it was still a good few shades darker than my usual tone.

I'm not the best when it comes to applying fake tan but I was happy with the shade and the effortless application. I had no blothces or dry patches and after 5 days it still shows no sign of fading ot going streaky. A big thumbs up from me.
