This summer was the first summer I ever tried a gradual tanning product. Naturally I'm very pale, like a ghost maybe? So I didn't want to have a full on tan so opted to use a light gradual tanner as opposed to a full on fake tan. And I must say I'm quite liking them! So far I've used this Garnier one and a Dove one, but I do have my eye on the Palmers one too!
I have the light sunkissed look one, but you can also get a darker one as well. It's available in a variety of different bottle sizes, with mine being 250ml, which is currently on offer in Superdrug for £2.53, normally £5.06. It has apricot extract in it, which gives it a nice summery scent. It works by having a small amount of tanning ingredients infused into a body moisturizer to give a subtle glow for those of us with pale skin!
What did I think?
For me this wasn't a stand out, amazing product, but on the other hand it wasn't bad either. It was really nice and moisturizing, making my skin feel lovely. As for adding colour I did find that it was pretty subtle, but still slightly buildable. But in all honesty I only wanted a light gradual tanner, just to take the edge off the paleness without being orange, you know! If you wanted more colour, perhaps try the darker one? And with any type of tanning products remember to exfoliate to keep the colour even! My current favourite is the Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish!
I must say you have to be careful of areas of dry skin with this type of product, you don't want dark patches! But anyway I hope you found the review useful and feel free to share your favourite gradual tanners down below!
