Having taken a holiday to Zante in the middle of September, when I returned it felt like the middle of Winter. Hello darker mornings, hello dark nights. I tried to hold on to my sunkissed glow for as long as possible – read, 1 week. It was then that I called upon the…
The tan develops over 4-6 hours, so I leave mine on overnight. I apply the clear, gel formula using a latex glove. Now, I must admit I love the concept, however, the clear gel caused me to be a little lax with application, not really taking the time to see how much I was using and where I was putting the lotion – take it from me, you must take some care with this or you can find yourself in streak city.
The formula still does have that infamous biscuity scent, especially after an hour or two of development time, however, it’s nowhere near the levels of the Dark Lotion and is easily rinsed away. The colour pay off is nice, subtle without being too much which is perfect for pale gals like myself.
I tend to re-apply the formula every 3 days or so to keep my colour looking fresher as the colour sticks around evenly for that amount of time anyway before it fades gradually with the odd bit of bobbling that requires a good old exfoliate.You can find the formula in Boots for £7.99, I’ll certainly be picking up another bottle. The velvet finish tanning gel is on a par with my all-time favourite gradual tanner from Dove.
