For the most revolutionary self-tans for this summer, read on.
This fabulously named tanning mousse is a versatile tanner as it can go as light or dark as you want it to depending on how you apply it. The instructions recommend to leave it on for 4-6 hours for a long lasting tan, but if you want it to be darker, you simply add another coat after you have had it on for an hour. Conversely if you want a lighter tan, just wash off after 1 hour.
