Garnier Summer Body Gradual Tan | Review




Hey girlie's!!

Usually in the UK a natural tan is very hard to achieve so most of us girlie's have to find comfort in fake tanning. Ill admit i never usually use fake tan, its too time consuming and unpredictable for me so i always play it safe and stay 'au naturale', However... this year i decided i do want a slight glow and for me a buildable self tan is just what a need.

I picked up the 'Garnier Summer Body Gradual Tan in Deep Sun-Kissed Look', it was on offer at the time for £2.49 'BARGAIN' and smelt nice so i thought id give it a go. I decided to use it in the evening so i could give the tan the whole night to do its thing and develop a slight glow. As for the application.... The tan itself comes out as a white moisturiser, i rubbed it into my whole body just like i would a normal moisturiser although i did spend a little longer on my elbows and knees and just making sure it was evenly blended as patches i definitely don't want. As i said before, i applied this just before bed, i was slightly worried about the gradual tan coming off on my pj's and on my bed sheets but there was honestly no need to worry as there was no tan stains at all.

The scent in my opinion is lovely, its smells strongly of apricots and is really fruity, in no way does this have the generic digestive biscuit fake tan smell thank goodness!! The fruity apricot smell also lingers on your skin the next day which personally i love and to me makes me feel like its that little bit more luxurious.

As you can see from the before and after pictures the results of this gradual tan are lovely, it leaves you with a light/medium natural looking tan that you can keep building on depending how dark you want to go, I've been using mine every other evening just to keep that slight glow to the skin.

Overall I'm really happy with this product, i experienced no patchiness, it didn't irritate my sensitive skin at all, it was really moisturising, smelt lovely and is reasonably priced.

Have you used this Garnier Gradual Tan?? What did you think??

  4. I use this too! but I find that it smells really bad and fake-tanny :( I have to use it overnight so I can wash it off first thing in the morning! which is annoying because I do like it as a product!
