Being sun-kissed in the summer isn’t easy if you live in England and don’t get to jet set around the world all the time. Saying that the weather here has been beautiful lately. But if you work, chances are you haven’t really seen much of it. So how are you going to get that glowing, sun-kissed skin 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. I’ve not tried ‘tan in a bottle’ before but the idea of streaky legs and orange palms is just not for me. Which is where the ‘Dove – Summer Glow, nourishing body lotion’ comes in. Sun-kissed skin without the hassle.
A gradual tanner that actually does what it says on the bottle.
In my desperation not to use instant tan products like St Tropez has meant that I have tried my fair share of gradual tanners. Products that haven’t been exactly truthful to their words. Which is why I was so excited when I found Dove’s attempt.
It comes in two shades ‘Fair to Medium’ and ‘Medium to Dark’. I tried the fair to medium one first last year which gave a beautiful glow. I have olive tones to my skin naturally, which meant it didn’t quite give the sun-kissed glow I was after. That being said, it was perfect throughout the Winter.
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 it gives of a very natural colouring rather than the orange you get from many instant tanners.
If you’re looking for a fool proof, no hassle tan then this product is the one for you!
