ProEasy to build a natural looking colour.

ConsThe fragrance is like fake-tan.

Introduction This is a product I purchased several months ago. It's something I use now and then to help improve the way my skin looks. I have used a lot of Garnier products in the past and the quality of their products tends to be very good so my first purchase of this lotion was based on the...

ConsNone

Finally, there’s a product that not only makes you look sun-kissed but also moisturises AND DOES NOT STINK OF FAKE TAN! I’ve been using fake tans for the last 10 years or so and always liked them a lot. But in my opinion, creating a moisturiser with a tint of self-tan was one of the best...

“Sun-kissed and gorgeous”

published 28/06/2011

ProEverything, its brill stuff!

ConsUse too much can look fake

When it comes to fake tanning it really is something that I'm not very interested in at all. However occasionally I do buy a bottle being conscious of my pasty white skin and and usually I try it once and give up vowing never to try it ever again! However the other day my friend and neighbour was...

ConsSlightly wet feeling when drying

I’m a regular false tan wearer and swear by St Tropez lotion, but applying false tan properly can be a chore and not something I have time to do regularly because of the need to exfoliate moisturise and then apply the tan. However the nicer warmer weather did make me feel slightly pale when...

Prosmells and works great

Consbe careful how you apply

I have a very fair complection, and although my arms and chest seem to catch the sun and look brown to me, compared to others i am still pasty! My legs are something that i have always struggled to tan too. I am not prepared to stick my body under intense UV light and increase my chances of skin...

ConsWent streaky and orange

After using dove gradual tan moisturiser for years, i went in boots to buy it a few weeks ago as i had run out, but unfortunatly they were out of stock, i was feeling very pale so didnt want to go home without anything to help give me a bit of colour! So i thought id give this garnier summer body...

“A summer body all year round”

published 16/07/2012

ProSoftens and moisturises skin

ConsDoes have a faint smell of fake tan

I don’t like looking pale but to keep a year round ‘glow’ I do opt for fake tanning products as I am not one to go to sunbeds. There is a wide variety of self tanning products on the market with varying price tags. I don’t like the tango effect I simply like something a bit more natural without...

ConsCan fade patchily if you don't exfoliate evenly

I am naturally quite pale skinned and I have used a few tanning moisturisers in the past which worked okay, but took weeks for the colour to build up. I bought this Garnier Summer Body Lotion earlier in the year to get some colour before a holiday and have been impressed with it. The smell is a...

I have naturally very pale skin and no matter how long i stay in the sun i never tan, just burn then go white again. I've finally had enough and this summer want to be able to show of my legs without them looking like they've seen a ghost. I decided i'd try and find a self tanner that actually...

ProNice streak-free tan, nice smell

ConsWatery lotion, doesn't moisturise skin well

I bought this in July as it was on offer in Boots and I thought I would have a change from Johnson's Holiday Skin which I had been using for a while. It was £3.50 for the biggest bottle which would normally be £5.75 I think. So I thought I would give it a try. I use these kind of fake tans as...

*Why did I want this product?* Fair skin and summer don't go together, so when we've had our beautiful weather recently I knew I had to show my pasty legs and the rest of my skin to the world and this is never a good look. Self tans don't go on me as they always look too dark and very unnatural...

This was the second gradual tan product I tried, after the Boots one did not make the slightest bit of difference to my colour. This one is more expensive at around £5 - £6 for a 250ml bottle depending on where you get it from, but believe me it's worth paying the extra. This one apparently comes...
