Sun kissed skin without the hassle


Being sun kissed in the summer isn't easy if you live in England and don't get to jet set across the world all the time. Whilst the weather here has been super hot and dreamt lately, if you work a lot chances are you haven't really seen much of it, so how are you meant to get that glowing tan that everyone fantasises about. You've got 3 options:

1. UV Sun Beds
2. Fake Tan
3. Gradual self tanner

Whilst lying on a sun bed under a UV light and fake tanning are the faster of the available options they're not as risk free as the third option. I've not tried 'tan in a bottle' before but the idea of the streaky legs and orange palms that my friends showed off, is just not for me. Which is where the 'Dove - Summer Glow, nourishing body lotion' comes in.

It's a gradual tanner that actually does what it says on the bottle. Now in my desperation not to use instant tanners like St Tropez has meant that I have tried my fair share of gradual tanners that haven't been exactly truthful to their words. Which is why I was so excited when I found Dove's attempt.

The gradual tanner comes in two shades 'Fair to Medium' and 'Medium to Dark'. I tried the fair to medium one first last year which gave me a beautiful glow to my skin. I have more of a sheer tan to my skin naturally so it was probably to weak to give my skin a definite colour change but the glow I got was really nice and would be perfect for a year round body moisturiser.

The medium to dark version i've been using recently however has really made a difference to the colouring on my skin. It's very gradual so doesn't look as thought i've changed race over night and gives of a very natural colouring rather than the orange you get from many instate tanners.

If you're looking for a fool proof, not hassle tan then this product is the one for you!

Love always,
Melissa

  1. I used to like tanning a lot but I'm not a fan of fake tan, just because I don't think about it. Dove products are generally good,I might have to try this!
