I bought this ages ago before I became a soap and glory addict and I only bought it because it sounded good - I am always pale and always wishing I wasnt about 10 minutes before I have to go out.. and it was on the clearance section at Boots. I had tried the Sally Hanson version of this ages ago and thought that it was good, but it smelled funny, looked a bit fake and was very expensive (i bought mine from america while on holiday so didnt realise it was that expensive in the UK). Thinking this would be better than the Sally Hanson, I decided to try it....
First off, it is an aerosol can with a pink lid and some of soap and glorys standard quirky writing on the front. You have to shake it a lot before use, as you do with most aerosols. It then has a little button jet thing like on most aerosol cans, but mine actually got clogged up with the product, so I had to get a new one of these from my dad.
When I sprayed this on my legs it created a very obvious stripe, in an orange colour there was no way I could ever have passed off as natural. It didn't even look tan, it looked bright orange. I continued spraying, desperately in need of colour and wanting to give the product a fair try. It really was not a good colour but I didnt have time to try anything else so I sprayed it, but from a distance and quite gently, up and don my legs. I found that they the only way to make this colour look half decent was to then try, before it dried (and it does dry very quickly - so theres a plus point!) was to rub it in with your hands, which kind of spreads it around and at least makes you look like an even tone of orange. It did come off a lot onto my hands though, which was horrible and is always a negative with fake tans, but one i thought I would avoid with this spray on one.
I also found that it doesn't spray upside down very well, which I have seen some other aerosols do. It also smells really bad, it smells like chemicals and melting plastic!
The thing about it being more leg make up rather than fake tan means it washes, and rubs off fairly easily. This meant I could clean my hands rather easily, but it also meant that the bottom of my pale dress started to turn orange by the end of the night and I managed to get orange smears down it which must have happened while I took it off. This was a real dissapointment and I can see how it would rub off in a club, or anywhere when out, and how if if rained, your "tan" would wash off - very embarassing.
Basically it is rubbish and a waste of money, I would rather go pale than wear this and I think that it really lets down the soap and glory range.
If I were you, I would just buy tights! Or try to be prepared with the proper fake tan and think ahead!
I don't even think you can buy this anymore but I am not sure. I can't find it on the boots wensite and I sincerely hope you can't buy it anymore!!
I am a self confessed fake tan addict. I dont like having pale skin whatever the time of year so when it comes to winter and I cant get a natural tan I look elsewhere to try and find the best product for giving me a "sun-kissed glow" that looks natural. I usually use St Tropez fake tan simply because that is the one I have found works the best and looks the best on my skin but as I got this as part of a set for Christmas I thought it might be worth trying it out. It turns out I was wrong.
Why I Stick To What I Know When It Comes To Fake Tans:
1. Im allergic to most of them. I have only found a few that dont make me come out in a rash so I like to stick to those ones.
2. Most of them STINK! I have only ever found one tan that doesnt have that very distinctive smell so I dont like trying new products that could leave me well pretty stinky.
3. A lot of them dont work and leave you orange or streaky. This reason speaks for itself really I think.
You might be wondering why I chose to include that section in my review and the reason is this. This product did all of the above and nothing else.
This product claims to be like spray on stockings that also looks fabulous on your toes, arms and shoulders and pretty much anywhere else you choose to apply it.
This part is pretty simple because it is in a sort of aerosol can so you just shower and exfoliate like normal and then simply spray it onto your skin. You are then supposed to rub it in because trust me it does not sink in but it is sooo hard and seems very thick so rubbing it in is near enough impossible.
I always do a skin test first whenever Im using new fake tans so I sprayed a line of this down the back of my leg. It seemed to go a really nice colour so I carried on spraying the rest of my legs because I was wearing a dress out that night and I didnt have any tights. Luckily enough I stopped spraying after I had done my legs because I ran out of time because after around 10 minutes I looked like a giant wotsit! My legs had gone bright orange and that is no exaggeration they did look slightly like David Dickinsons face. I quickly ran to have a shower and luckily enough it seemed to wash right off so that pleased me.
Unfortunately the horrendous fake tan smell lingered for the rest of the night and I was really paranoid that other people could smell it so this is one to stay away from at all costs.
Lastly a few hours afterwards I noticed an ugly red rash appearing on my legs that could have only been caused from this fake tan. The rash got much worse over the next few days so much so that I had to go to the doctors and get some cream to help it settle down. My legs are now back to normal thank god!!
I would say avoid this product at all costs because there is nothing good about it at all. I had the worst reaction to this product I have ever had to any moisturizer or tan Ive ever used so people with irritable skin like me shouldn't even pick up this product!!
I DONT RECOMMEND!

Over the summer if I'm tempted to get my legs out or feel its going to be sunny for a few days in a row I use my trusted Johnsons holiday skin to give me a nice quite dark tan which looks very natural and builds up over a couple of days.
As last year was a bit of a washout and not exactly tshirt and shorts weather I hadn't been throwing copious amounts of Johnsons on any bits I might want to show. When I got an unexpected invitation to go out on the razz the same night I was thrown.
What was I to do? Go out looking pale and pasty, sit home feeling blue and blame myself for being to lazy to keep up the normal summer beauty routine or run down to Boots at lunchtime and check out if any new instant fake tans had come in which were better than the orangey, smelly streaky ones which I had used before discovering Johnsons.
Now I love a nice bit of slap and all the creams and lotions that go hand and hand with it and am always tempted by Soap and Glory products as much for their name and packaging as the content within. I still smile when I open my bag to find the sexy mother pucker lip plumping gloss staring back at me so when in Boots I was surprised when I discovered that Soap and Glory did a fake tan. It was supplied in their traditional style branding in pink and white and was called One Night Tanned which tickled me. It claimed to be like spray on stockings, but in a colour that looks equally lovely on your shoulders as your toes? Sounded ideal for a surprise night out.
The aerosol can was about the size of an impulse bottle and the instructions were to spray from a distance of about 12 inches moving the can along whichever part of the body you were tanning. At home while getting ready I shook the can before spraying and envisaged how my sultry brown body would look against the little cream and black number I was to wear.
I started spraying at the bottom of my legs, I did a quick squirt just to check the colour and coverage and couldn't see anything. I kept the button depressed twice as long the next time and on looking down I could have cried, the bottom of my leg was orange, not slightly orange toned but like I had been well and truly tangoed. I tried spraying a little more, it just looked worse, I tried massaging it in, it looked worse and it had one of the most obvious eau de fake tan smells of all time.
I gave in eventually and had to go and shower it off. At least this was easy to do, the words "One night" really are true It was more of a make-up for your legs than a fake tan. The only worry there though is if you did decide to go out looking like the inside of a jaffa cake but smelling much worse wouldn't the rain cause little white rivulets to show on your legs?????
This product is the first one from soap and glory that I have been disappointed in. It looks great, sounds great but I can't think of a single person who would look good in that shade of orange.
I used this tanning spray for a night out and boy was I disappointed!!! It smells pretty much like all the other products from this range, which isn't a bad smell, it's quite flowery and musky and not unpleasant at all. The packaging is nice and that's what drew me to this product and got me to buy it. Well, I didn't buy this solely for the packaging, I read the description on the box and I liked what I read so thought it would be worth a shot.
Anyway, the fact that it's a spray on tan and instantly gives you colour sounded good to me. So after my shower and moisturiser I started spraying the stuff on. I instantly felt a sticky, oily product covering my skin, which wasn't pleasant at all. It was supposed to be a mist of instant tan but it felt so heavy, slippery and sticky that I had to wash it off right away and couldn't even go out with it on!!
The colour of this product was also a little odd to me. It looked quite yellow/orangey and not natural looking at all. I think I'll stick to using my benefit jiffy tan from now on as that does a better job for instant, temporary tanning. This product would have been useful if I was able to use it to spray on and tan my back and the back of my legs but I just wasn't able to use it at all. Sorry Soap and Glory, I suggest you go back to the drawing board with this one.
I bought this as I usually love Soap & Glory products and was looking for a new self tan to try.
This is an instant self tan spray, so once you've applied it you are supposed to immediately look tanned. It gives even coverage with a lovely shimmer and like other Soap & Glory products smells gorgeous.
I found that this product made me look very, very orange however. Fortunately it also washes off straight away in the shower so I didn't have to go out in public looking like an oompa loompa! It may suit some people's skin tones, but it definitely didn't suit my pale 'english rose' complexion.
The fact that the product is easy to wash off also means that it rubs off on clothes really easily, so you definitely don't want to be wearing anything white at the same time as this. Its not one to apply before you go on holiday either as it would all wash off in the pool.
Overall, if you're looking for a self tan product that lasts more than one night then this isn't for you. Its a good solution if you need a quick fix for a night out though, but only if you aren't really pale skinned.
