Do tanning lotions really work?

And could anyone suggest a good one if they do?

  • Are you talking about sunnles tanning lotion or ones for the tanning bed or one for outdoors.

  • I have never used a sunless tanner that didn't turn orange.

  • Ditto what michelle asked. Are you looking for the stuff to bake with or color? No idea about tanning in the sun because I refuse to do it, but I've used L'Oreal Sublime Bronze sunless tanner and it's the only one that hasn't turned me orange and went on very evenly. I'm VERY pale (my stretch marks, which are white, are darker than my skin), so most sunless tanning lotions turn me orange or an ugly brown/orange. The L'Oreal is a subtle color that you can build. I love it.

  • The sunless tanning I guess, the ones that don't require any baking! :)
    thank you Mrs.BAT, I will try the L'Oreal one, I am pretty white myself!
