MCRBC Reviews – Self Tan

It’s that time of year in the UK when you might want to face the day without having to cover your legs. The best way to reduce the risk of blinding every passerby with your luminous limbs is to fake tan it up.

So this month we’ve reviewed instant, gradual and overnight self tanners for you.


  1. Buy a mitt, you get a much better application.
  2. Exfoliate your drier patches (elbows, knees, ankles) and moisturise well – the day before.
