    My top tip: Simple but I always use a tanning mitt, I can't find mine at the moment and I'm lost without it!

    Love your blog by the way!
    Thanks xx

  10. My top tanning tip is: To remove your tan use ex-foliating gloves and put some of Morrison's own Lemon Soap on the glove then scrub lightly and it removes the tan straight away :) xx

  11. L'Amour Lauran's Tanning Top Tip: If you're using a spray bottle tan stand in your shower whilst applying. It'll save your walls and floor and the shower will wash all the product away when you're done :D

    Great giveaway Lucy!

    Much Love,

  12. Top tip - don't forget your ears! Pale lugs, tanned face=obvious tannage!
    Fab giveaway :)

  13. top tip; add lemon juice to your bath to help git rid of the last of your fake tan!


  14. Dont forget to exfoliate before you tan!! :)

  15. I don't have a tanning tip - as i have never really used fake tan. I have tried the FCUK instant tan, way back when, and loved it.

    I'd love to try this as my best friend is FOREVER going on about it. I love the concept, that it's an instant tanner, but can be left to slowly build colour. Genius.

  16. Tan all of your body leaving your hands and feet last and then use whatever tan is left on the mitt and go over your feet and hands!

    I follow your blog and twitter and have also tweeted too :)

    Great giveaway! Email:

  17. Looks like a great product! I mix body lotion with the fake tan to make it extra moisturising and streak free.

  18. Once you've applied the fake tan, top it up every few days by mixing with palmers coco butter - it smells good, lasts longer, is streak free and moustrises! What more could you possibly want!
    Great giveaway - would love to try this product!

  19. Exfoliate and moisturise! Always Apply using a tanning mitt!

  20. I'm really pale so if I miss a bit when tanning its really obvious! So make sure you really do cover everywhere, using a tanning mitt! Example; the time I got the best ever coverage on my arms and hands, only to find that the creases on my finger joints showed up stripy white whenever I clenched my fist! (which was quite often once I'd found out and was naffed off with the zebra effect!)
    Here's my blog, twitter @CassiefairyTutu I'm a tutu-maker if you want to check me out! X

  21. if you get fake tan on your hands wen applying wash them with toothpaste as soon as you have finished, it works :)

    follow me on twiiter @_charlharrison


  22. Laurens Way tanning lotion looks amazing! I've been wanting to try it for a little while now, especially since Xen Tan broke me out in spots :(

    Tan from your feet upwards to avoid rubbing excess tanning lotion in already applied areas. Also I just use whatevers left on my tanning mitt to tan my hands, if I apply anymore product to them and rub the backs of my hands together it just doesn't work for me!

    Gem x

  23. I follow you via GFC as Joy.
    My tanning tip is if you get fake tan in places you don't want it or want to take it off, wash the area with a little washing/laundry powder and it will come right off :)

  24. I have only bought / used fake tan once, however the type I bought was far too dark for me. My housemate ended up using it to enter a karaoke competition as Tina Turner.

    So I suppose my tip would be to check it works for you? However I have no idea how to do this. I did try to sample the one I bought but must have got confused in the shop.

    To make up for my useless tip I tweeted about you @laserbaser

  25. Hi,
    Just found your blog via Twitter, and am now following both here and on Twitter.
    My tanning tip is that I always go over my tan with one of those St Tropez buffing mitts, especially around ankles, knees etc, it after applying, it really helps avoid streaks.
    Thanks for the giveaway

  26. always moisturise your tan! it makes it fade naturally instead of it turning into blotchy patches ohhh and it makes your skin smell soooo good:) xx

  27. Hey :)

    my tip is test the colour of fake tan on an inconspicuous area first, you don't want to be orange all over if its the wrong shade!


  31. I always moisturise 1st so the tan isnt too dark or too orange!

  36. Hi,
    If you have dry skin, exfoliate before tanning, and also moisturize in the places that are most dry such as elbox knees, feet.
    When applying to the face, don't add more lotion, just use whatevers left on your tanning mitt.
    Also, after applying the lotion, have a shower 6 hours after, that way it will all tone out and be less streaky!

  37. Lemon Juice is great to get rid of DHA, which is the #1 ingredient in most sunless (fake tan) products.

  38. omg, what a great giveaway!
    my tanning tip is to do your tanning at night, and sleep in bedding which you use especially for tanning and wake up as a bronze goddess. no need to wait around till the tan develops xx
    i am a follower on gfc x

  39. Ooh I'll have to re-do my comment! Only just remembered.
    My tanning tip is just to exfoliate, I don't use fake tan much as I can't find one I really like!

  40. as many have said exfoliate before tanning and always use gloves or mits which ever is your preferance but i also find it essential to have a cold can of diet coke (to which im probebly addicted to) when tanning to relax with after sed application just while it drys slightly!.. also i find it important to tan in good light

  41. Wear gloves so you don't stain your hands :)
    @NicoleFoulia on Twitter x

  42. I'm new to twitter and the blog world. I follow towie and Laurens way. I would really like to win the Laurens way tan, at the min I use fake bake but it's running out now. I'm a mommy and love to pamper myself when u have the time. I use the scrub with my exfoliate mits then apply :D x x x

  43. Never ever tan with deodorant still on, you will get green armpits!!! The alcohol on deodorant reacts with the tan not good! And simply never leave any White patches/spots! Xxx missie_Victoria on twitter xx

  44. If your as naturally pastey as me, build up the tan gradually over 2/3 days for that perfect lauren's way essex tan!!!!

  45. on the third day after a spray tan make sure you exfoliate to make sure your tan comes of evenly :)

  46. Vaseline on your eyebrows before applying fake tan to your face will save orange eyebrows or slightly discoloured ones (especially if you are fair like me!) xx
