Mother left 'looking like Princess Fiona from Shrek' in fake tan fail

Mother, 20, says she was left ‘looking like Princess Fiona from Shrek’ after her skin turned GREEN from using out-of-date fake tan

  • Kerry McRobb, 20, from Livingston, West Lothian, used out-of-date fake tan
  • After applying a couple of layers of the lotion, she said she noticed a green tinge 
  • Shade got ‘worse and worse’ as it dried and she found herself with green skin 

A mother has claimed she was transformed from ‘Casper the Friendly Ghost’ into ‘Princess Fiona from Shrek’ when her skin turned green after using out-of-date fake tan.

Kerry McRobb, from Livingston, West Lothian, decided to indulge in a pamper evening by applying fake tan to give her naturally pale skin a golden glow.

The children’s hospital support worker, who admitted she looked like ‘Casper the Friendly Ghost’ without a tan, dug out an old bottle of St Moriz in shade Darker than Dark.

However after the 20-year-old applied a couple of layers of the lotion, she said she noticed a green tinge, but desperate for her golden glow, ploughed on regardless. 

Yet the shade got ‘worse and worse’ as it dried and she soon found herself with green skin – and friends quickly compared her to ‘Princess Fiona from Shrek’ after she sent them photos of herself looking mortified.

She shared the hilarious photos with the caption: ‘This is my sign to stop fake tanning and get back to sunbeds asap.’

Kerry said: ‘I’m very pale without fake tan, I look like Casper the Friendly Ghost. I put the fake tan on as I wanted a golden glow, I used St Moriz Darker than Dark fake tan.

‘Before I was pregnant I would put it on every so often when I went out. Not like in school when we had Tan Thursdays – everyone would be stinking of digestive biscuits.’

While slathering herself in the tan, Kerry said she noticed it was a little green, but ploughed on regardless.

Kerry said: ‘As I was putting it on I noticed it was a little bit green and as it was drying it got worse and worse. I put two layers on and left it on overnight.

‘I first spotted the khaki green colour on my phone’s camera that night, I was a bit taken aback. I shared the pictures with my friends, they found it funny. They said I looked like Shrek but I’d like to think I was more Princess Fiona.’

After sending the funny snaps to her friends, Kerry (pictured) went to sleep and woke up the following morning to have a thorough shower – in which she was thankfully able to scrub off the green tinge

After sending the funny snaps to her friends, Kerry went to sleep and woke up the following morning to have a thorough shower – in which she was thankfully able to scrub off the green tinge.

Kerry said: ‘I hadn’t fake tanned in over a year because I was pregnant, so it was probably out of date. I wasn’t concerned as I knew it would come off, it was very funny.’

St Moriz was contacted for comment.
