Fake Bake beyond Bronze range

There has been a lot of posts regarding great tanners but I'm writing this post to tell you of some not so great ones. It's all good knowing great products to buy, but it's disappointing when you spend £20+ on something & end up using it once. I've tried all of these, the mousse, the lotion & the spray. All give great colour at first, a nice warm colour not orange at all. But when it comes to a morning shower after letting the tan develop over night, I emerge from the shower just as pasty as I was before the 20 or so minutes of applying tan. With the lotion I applied this religiously every day & still after a shower I came out my natural colour, maybe with a slight tinge of tan, definitely not a beyond bronze colour. Both the mousse & spray (VERY messy) give great initial colour, but same results after having a shower. I'm not scrubbing myself clean with a brillo pad & I'm giving the tan more than enough time to develop, so I gave up. It seems the new formula of Beyond Bronze is pants. It's a shame really because I used to love the old formula in the purple packaging.
