I am Summer ready! I have shaved, moisturised, and fake tanned every inch of my body that I may be forced to reveal.
Naturally, I am a pasty white colour, almost translucent, a nod I think, to my Celtic roots.
Therefore, fake tan has become essential, or at least very important to me.
There was much excitement in our office a few weeks ago when we learned, that St Tropez had brought out a gradual tan that you could apply in the shower.
I decided to give it a go and to compare it to my usual and reliable, Dove ‘Summer Glow”. I also promised a review, so here it is.
St Tropez Gradual Tan
For two weeks I washed, applied this St Tropez gradual tan, waited for three minutes, rinsed it off and patted myself dry.
The formula also includes almond oil which left my skin feeling soft and cared for.
Furthermore, I did not get that awful smell, you know the one, that always seems to accompany fake tans.
However, although I might have looked slightly less pasty than usual, it didn’t really feel as though it had made that much of a difference.
The test for me is, if I would leave the house with bare legs and after these two weeks the answer was a definite no!
Dove Summer Glow
I have been using the fair to medium version of Dove’s Summer Glow for a number of years now. I either put it on after my bath/shower in the evening or, in the morning.
It doesn’t stain the sheets like the first generation of fake tans did.
It always leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturised but, it does definitely have that particular odour.
However, it works on my resistant skin from the first application and, as always, my legs were ready to be bared after two to three applications.
Therefore, although I love to try new products, this time my old faithful definitely proved to be the best.
Have a lovely day!
