    right, genuinie question here. is it a bit gay for a guy to go on the sunbeds? just been out tonight, had a little look in the mirror and realised that for someone with black hair I look like a ghost.

    so should I go all out and go on the beds?

    it takes ages if you do it properly - do not rush the results will be all bad and streaky

    I use St. Tropez and it takes me about 40 mins to get it on too! Longer if I do my legs! I love the results, but its a bit off-putting sometimes when I don't really have the time to do it. I'd try a faster alternative but I don't know if the results would be as good :confused:

    I'm thinking of getting a St Tropez spray tan but I have quite sensitive skin, any chance of a bad reaction? Only fake tan I ever use is Johnson's Holiday Skin! (apologies for slight thread deviation)

    I've used St Tropez before, and it was o.k. and I have eczema, so you should be fine.

    st. Tropez is ok on sensitive skin unless your allergic to any of the ingredients then you should be ok - also I just Johnsons Holiday Skin or Piz Buin Mid tan spray. Prefer the Holiday Skin tbh its easier to put on.

    I'd do-it-yourself St.Tropez, if you think you can, rather than go for a spray

    My mum went for a St. Tropez spray tan and I couldn't even tell the difference!

    I saw those mits on This Morning. The L'Oreal ones appeared really easy to put on and not streaky. I can't remember what it was given rating wise, but it did quite well. It's around £10, but i can't remember if it was one or three uses you get out of them. It was a huge colour difference, but it did a natural tan, so you look like you have some colour. It would be useless if you want a really distinct tan though.

    I don't mind sunbeds either but i couldnt be arsed with the fact of paying a tenner for 10 minutes when i could have a faked tan at half the price with instant results....
