    I'm not going on holiday this year, so I really fancy trying out a self-tanner to get some colour into my skin, BUT I have never done it before!

    I'm looking for a bronze finish rather than orange, and for something relatively affordable (I'm on a tight budget). Do you have any recommendations?

    Also I have a few questions:
    - would I have to apply it to only my body and leave my face out? I don't wear foundation daily, so the whole body tanned and dark foundation thing wouldn't work for me, so can I use it on my face?
    - I currently use a retinoid acne cream, could I use a self tanner with that?
    - any tips/recommendations/advice?
