Hiya Hayley, it depends what tanning product you use. My fave is xen-tan. I'd say its better than st Tropez . It costs about the same in shops like Debenhams but I get it online for about £18 quid inc delivery . Bargin!! This stuff doesn't need u to moisturize first as it has alot already in it and can cause streeks Or pactchy marks. Simply shower and dry well . Then apply one part of you at a time I pump once for each application , starting with calf -ankle to knee. Go easy on the knee and foot then pump again for top of leg and one side if you bum repeat for second leg. Then continue up ur body. Try to use circular motion as apposed to long strokes Once body and arms are done , apply a very small amount to face making sure u blend into hair line Take off gloves and apply small amount to back of hands blending to ur wrists. U can use a cotton pad for this n anckles if u prefer =D Once fin use a wet wipe to remove any excess tanning lotion between fingers . Don't put cloths on for 20 mins or so, then when u do make sure they are loose. It starts to develops in 3 hrs but I put mine on before bed, wake up and shower off. Then your very natural looking tans with you from 7-10 days! if u have anymore questions feel free to ask =D Hope this has helped xx

All of the above but I prefer using a tanning mitt, less streaks
