Nicole Froggett, from Coventry, tried using sunbeds and spray tans but they didn't work for her.And what’s in this ‘Ubertan’..?
"I'm very, very pale," she said. "It takes me a long time to tan if I'm on holiday."
Her friend recommended Ubertan and the first time Nicole tried it she had some side effects.
"You feel a bit dizzy and you get a head rush like you've had your first cigarette of the day," she said.
"I started to feel sick, but it wore off after two hours."
The box has instructions on how to use Ubertan, which involve spraying the product up your nostrils twice a day for 10 to 14 days.*gulp*
However, both the box and bottle do not have an ingredients list.
Claire Tilstone, from the MHRA, is worried that users will suffer serious side effects.Wise advice. Will Nicole heed it?
She said: "Ubertan or any other nasal tanning spray hasn't undergone testing to show it's safe or that it even works.
"At best it's a waste of money, at worse it can seriously damage your health.
"Don't use this product, throw it away if you have already bought it and don't buy any more."
Nicole bought Ubertan from her local tanning salon.It walks, it talks, it sprays unknown substances up its nose and yet it has not one single functioning braincell!
She is worried about the contents but will continue to use it until there's proof that it is unsafe.
"I didn't know anything about it when I first took it, so I wasn't worried at all. I didn't even think about it really," she admitted.
"This is the best tan I have had.
"This is my last bottle now and maybe in a couple of months, I may get another one."
Medical history has been made!
