"A Glowing summer body - all year round!"

This is by far my favourite gradual tan body lotion on the market - and trust me, I have tried a few!!

It comes in two different size bottles, which are yellow curve shaped with a flip lid. I have seen it on offer in both Boots and Tesco's quite frequently and always make sure I stock up whilst it's half price. I believe it's around £3.99 for the smaller bottle, and £6.99 for the larger, but look out for offers as they are always about!

It is designed to be a moisturiser enriched with a moisturising complex to leave your skin feeling soft and silky for a full 12 hours, it also has a hint of self tan that gradually builds to give you a natural sun-kissed glow.

When applied to the skin the lotion feels really smooth, and spreads evenly, leaving your skin feel really soft and smooth, without leaving it with that greasy feel. It also absorbs really quickly into the skin, so there is no need to wait around before getting dressed.

One of the best things about it is the smell, it's light, fruity and summery. Even in the depths of winter you can have that "summer body" feel as you apply this with it's lovely smell.

The thing that makes it for me is that the colour does not streak at all, you can almost apply it as if it were just body lotion, unlike full on self-tan products. Of course you need to pay attention to areas like the knee's and elbows and make sure they are exfoliated, but other than that - just smooth it on and the colour applies really evenly.

You must remember to wash your hands after application though, as it will stain.

I apply this product only at night time. It does have a lovely smell, but as it develops this can turn into that classic "biscuity" smell, however this is quite mild and not as bad as other products I have tried.

Even after one application I can notice a difference in my colour. I then use it every evening until I achieve a lovely natural tan, then it can be used every other day or so. If you leave it a few days the colour begins to fade. The good thing about it is the colour is really natural, it doesn't leave you looking orange, or streaky.

Overall I'm really happy with the product and I will definately be using this for my "summer body" this year. It leaves your skin feeling soft and silking and glowing too - perfect!
