sublime bronze it said on the bottle
« on: Jul 03, 2006, 20:35 »
self tanning cream for use on the face and body, developed to give a natural tan without orange streaks.
My legs only see daylight on a few occasions each year and i thought they needed a little help into the summer weather, so i chose a bottle suitable for the face (thinking that if its suitable for the complection then my legs are safe).

I followed the instructions and the results are NOT as described on the bottle. I have spent long enough in the bath to remove both the tanning cream and the first layer of skin with a nail brush. But how do I get the stuff off the areas which have proved to be inexcessive to force?

I now have white legs again, and dark orange between my toes. I am supposed to be at a 25th wedding do tomorrow but at this rate I'll be going in jeans and boots.

I'm pleased I never tried it on my arms or face but does anyone know how to remove the stuff from my feet within the next 24 hours please:?

We highly recommend Rimmel Sun Shimmer face & body bronzer.

It's semi-permanent and doesn't have that nasty smell often associated with self tanning gels.

It was highly rated in one of the wifes magazines and is cheap enough to use all over the body.

Thankyou, the nail polish remover has helped reduce the marks on my feet. although I daren't try it on my legs yet as they're still a bit sore from my earlier attempts to remove the stuff, so perhaps I'll wait until tomorrow.

I don't thnk I'll be having another attempt ever again :lol:

Heehee that is bad luck and I hope it gets off by today, pumpkin. If not, you could always put on an extra new layer of tanning cream, dress up in a Hawaiian skirt with a flower thingy round your neck doing the hoola-hoola when you go to the wedding. You could just tell everyone you thought it was a themed-wedding  :lol:

Crikey! What a dilema!
How about trying some "Whitening" toothpaste and a soft, knackered tooth-brush? Not an old tooth-brush which you've used to clean under the rim of the netty though!
That "Whitening" stuff works on my baccy/coffee-stained gnashers, so it should work on anything.
