St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion
It's always nice to have a bit of a glow before you head off on your honeymoon, so if your <a href="http://www.youandyourwedding.co.uk/dresses-and-style/beauty/the-revolutionary-new-spray-tan-treatment-from-sienna-x/22571.html" target="_self">wedding day spray tan</a> has worn off, it might be time to indulge in St. Tropez's <a href="http://www.boots.com/st-tropez-gradual-tan-in-shower-lotion-light-200ml-10195835" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion</a>, £14.50.<br /><br />Just apply in your shower a few times before you go away and you'll step off the plane looking like a bronzed babe without putting in any tanning time.
