Hey hey heyyyy !!!
I'm so excited that I've got an amazing product review for you my girlsss !!!
Gradual self tanner !!!!!!!
Every spring-summer I tend to look for a new moisturiser, which can give my skin a nice tan gradually.
I don't like those heavy tinted gels, with that instant color. I do prefer something more natural and nice looking, that stays on longer.
Well this year I've found an awesome one and I'm really happy! Sephora's own brand Gradual tanner :-)
To begin with, this product does exactlly what it says...
Creates gradually a nice even color, yes!
Smells amazing, yes!
Looks amazing, due to the tiny tiny amount of glitter, yes yes!
It's an all in one holy moly miracle product for my skin!
I seriously need only this bottle in the summer, no extra body moisturizers, no extra perfumes, no extra shimmery lotions. It can do its job enormously well !!!
As far as color goes, it gives you a nice light brownish-golden glow, like you've been in the beach for a couple of days. Certainly not a heavy tan effect, but still a noticable darker than your skin color.
I'm not a pale girl, but I surely am enough fair to need a gradual self tan, as I do not tan easily too.
Do not expect that you'll be brown in one use. But you do certainly can build up your color and create a glow your friends would be jealous of, without that dangerous sun exposure Now, I'm one shade and a half darker than my normal color.
You need to reapply it 3 days in the row to see results. The color will fade away if you exfoliate, like every gradual self tanner does, but it takes one application and you'll have your color back, without orangy spots effect.
The thing is that you can use it every morning and then put your clothes on, as it is not a sticky formula.
It actually gives a very very very soft and smooth feeling to your body in a couple of minutes!
So moisturising that dries out unexpectedly fast! The moist lasts on your skin the whole day I would say.
Apart from those two obvious roles that this product should have, it has two more.
It smells something like lavender!!! A nice flowery scent that stays on your body, gosh... for ages!!!!
I can tell you that you won't need an eau de toilette if you use this one!
Every time I have this on, there's no way not to get a compliment at least from one person!
Also, it gives a decent shimmer and shine to your darker-yayy- body, that's noticable yes, but not too obvious too. Every girl likes something glittery on her tanny legs :)
I could say that if you're using it every or every other day, it will last about a month!
I've run out one bottle so I got two more! It's a handy bottle that doesn't take too much space in your drawer or your travel bag.
Now, the sad part is that it costs 12.5 Euros for a 200 ml bottle. For gradual lotion, yes it's expensive.
Well, I have tried cheaper self tanners that do the same or even some times better job, but girl... It deserves it! I'll keep reaching for this one, no matter how it costs.
It's nice that Sephora has every now and then some pretty good sales too, so you can certainly get these for less.
It's a 4 in 1 product for me, so it worth the hype ! Go get it !
It comes in an updated package and name too, with the exact same product inside!
Have a nice night ! xx
