Forget the snow, embrace the dark side!
No matter your body or budget, we have the fake tan for you...
1. Rockstar Tan
Our old reliable. We try others, but keep going back for more. It's long-lasting, relatively streak-free and has just the right level of bronze, which you can deepen to your own taste.
2. Decadence Tan
Goodbye stinky tan smell! This organic brand has a natural smelling scent, with an even better finish.
3. Karora Bodymist
It's a sell-out around the country and ideal for a spray tan. Check out your local pharmacy for one of their famous special discounts and offers. Really, there's always one on.
4. Cocoa Brown
You can't beat the pricetag. At just €7, this Irish made product is fast becoming a cult must-have - despite only being on the market a matter of weeks.
5. Sally Hansen
The beloved Airmist Legs couldn't be ignored. If you're in need of an instant tan fix, spray some Sally on your legs and Voila!
6. Rimmel Sunshimmer
A staple product among Irish women. While it's less than favourable in the rain (think zebra stripes), on a dry summer day, it will transform you from pale to a Greek goddess.
7. Johnson & Johnson Holiday Skin
If it's a natural look you're after, then apply the tinted body moisturiser daily. Ideal for the pasty folk who don't want to transform overnight into a bronze goddess.
8. He Shi
We can't get enough of Irish products! He Shi is our favourite booster after a holiday tan. It brings out your natural colour, extending your bronze look from an extra two weeks.
If you're looking for a little boost without that 'fake tan look', try Shiseido's gel. It develops over the course of a few hours which means you should take extra diligence when applying. It also has exfoliating beads to soften the skin.
10. Vita Liberata
Look no further for a deep tan than Vita Liberata. We suggest this one is best as a spray - you won't regret it!
