What is the best sunless tanner?

I am looking for a tanner for my face, neck, arms and legs. What product/s are the most natural looking? I was a good girl and stayed out of the sun this summer, but I am pasty now and want to have a bit more color.

Thanks!

looks like nobody knows!

Maybe you can use a darker make-up?

I was wondering how long people would let this stay up! Thanks Sylvia, but I want color on my arms and legs as well. I have tried the spray tan at the salons, AWFUL experiences and my skin broke out into excema bumps because of it. Here in Phoenix I wear shorts and tees all year round.

I bought a couple bottles of the sunless tanners from Walmart, they just stink so bad that I can't get past that smell, so I guess long sleeves and slightly darker makeup it is!

Have you tried one of the self-tanning lotions? I used L'Oreal Sublime over the summer and liked the results. I'm pale and don't tan and found the color to be realistic. I find the lotions more forgiving if you miss a spot than the sprays since the color builds gradually. I have the worst time getting even color with the sprays. I agree that some of them smell pretty funky so I always sniff before buying if I can.

Thanks Lunamoon, yes, as I said in the post just above yours I have tried a few from Walmart.

I searched this site for posts about self-tanners because I wanted some suggestions. I have used Jergens self tanner and it works, but it causes age spots to appear...sigh..

Are there any that don't do that?

The smell of those tanners makes me nauseas! I am very fair and don't tan well. My legs are white throughout the summer and I would love to find one that works well without that gawd-awful smell. Anyone?

Melaleuca sells toilettes that are pleasant smelling and easy to use for a natural look. Find someone who uses Melaleuca products & they'll lend or sell you some.
