Apparently, we're due to have a heatwave later this week. Yeah right, like we did in August? If we do, it will be your last chance to get a tan (safely!) before the sun comes back to see us next year.

It's not going to happen though is it?

Therefore those pale and pasty people like me are going to need a little help to stay looking healthy, alive and not like a zombie. Help in the form of fake tan.

Which is lucky because I've recently been sent some of the products from the new range by Tanatomicals, a fab and funky fake tan range exclusive to Superdrug.

This tantastic line-up of four fabulous fakers offers tan fans, long-lasting, natural-looking, flawless results that leave the skin looking sun-kissed and beautifully bronzed in next to no time. Quick and easy to apply, each tanning treat is pH balanced and packed with moisturisers (including skin-quenching aloe vera) to ensure a streak-free finish. Priced at just Β£6.99 each, these super sunless tanners are infused with a fresh tropical Pina Colada (coconut and pineapple) fragrance that leaves skin lightly scented.

I've used the spray on fake tan which was fun! It gave a good colour which dried quickly. Spraying from a good distance gives an even coverage, otherwise it's patchy and a top tip is do it over the bath so the excess cleans up easily. This would be a life saver in an emergency. I've also used the self-tan mousse which is more my type of fake tan as it slowly develops and lasts a little longer. This gave an excellent colour with even coverage and a tropical smell.

This is a good range for those on a budget, which provide a realistic tan.


For those fellow pale-skinned folk who are in need of a healthy glow I am lucky enough to be able to give away five sets of the above four products (worth over Β£25).

In order to be in with a chance of winning one of these five sets, please do the following:
