Searching for the Perfect Fake Tan

As a fair-skinned person, I use fake tan because I prefer to look tanned and I want to get my tan safely. So, using a fake tan is the best option for me.

I have been searching for the perfect fake tan for years now. I have tried so many brands. I have tried spray tans, creams, mousses – all different types. I have found some great products and over the years the tanning products have got better over the year but I still haven’t found the perfect tan.

The perfect tan needs to be a natural shade, streak free, easy to apply, hydrating rather than drying and long-lasting. Another important factor is smell. So many tans smell vile. Smelling like a stale biscuit is not appealing!

So when I was asked by Staks Sprays if I would like to try their self tanning mousse which was mango fragranced I was intrigued.

I have been using this mousse and the tan saving moisturiser for a few weeks now and I am really impressed.


I have been applying the product with a tanning mitt at night as directed, then shower in the morning. This leaves me with a very natural tan. It’s comparable to the St Tropez mousse actually. In fact, I prefer this to St Tropez. It smells nicer and unlike St Tropez, it does not streak. The mango fragrance is lovely.


A little goes a long way with this tan. You don’t need to apply much at all.

I do find mousses a little drying on my skin but using Tan Saving Moisturiser everyday, its keeping my skin hydrated and it helps the tan to fade rather than go patchy.

Have you tried this tan before? Whats is your favourite tan?
