These past few weeks in the UK have been suprisingly hot. After the dark and wet Springtime my body was less than prepared to be stripped down to a vest and shorts for the sun coming out. This is where this product helped out massively, and Ive been loving it ever since..
Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion Sun Kissed Look (mouthful?) is basically a moisturiser with a hint of self than that can be built up gradually. I use the shade "Deep Sunkissed Look" which I think is the darkest. I have the fairest skin imaginable and this isnt too dark for me, but I wil explain further.
I was quite shocked at how much of a tan this gave me at my first application. I applied it before bed one night just as I would a normal body lotion expecting minimal results, I was very wrong. In the morning I had clearly used tan, overall the colour was lovely, but since I had underestimated it I had missed patches and made streaky marks. I think because I got the darkest hade it mkes the most difference after just one application, which I personally like but something to think about if that not your thing.
After applying it properly the next time, rubbing it in carefully ll oer and washing my hands after, I got lovely results. The tan this gives isnt intense, and is a much safer and less obvious choice in comparison to my St Moriz or Xen Tan. I prefer those for a big night out, but this is great for day to day to keep the pale ghostly skin I have away. It is described as a sun-kissed look, and I would definately agree.
Another aspect I truely love about this is the scent. All gradual tanners Ive tried in the past have stunk of false tan (Dove, Johnsons, Im lookin at you). This one has none of that at all, it actually smells of apricots, and suuprisingly when the tan developes the smell still doesnt sneak in then either. The smell I find reminicent of Apricot Munch Bunch yogurts I used to eat as a child, yum!
This is a perfect product to help get summer ready, and quickly too! Id recommend giving it a try.
