Bargain J-Lo legs with Dove Summer Glow + Soft Shimmer


I have always been a fan of gradual tanners as they are the easiest way to get a colour without a great amount of fuss. I used Dove Summer Glow a lot when I was at school so I would have tan legs for PE. It also has the added bonus of being very moisiturising. I had somewhat abandoned the gradual tanners over the years in favour of very deep, dark tans which can be messy and ruin many a white duvet cover. However, I recently was sent Dove Summer Glow with soft shimmer and I've fallen back in love with gradual tanners. It doesn't smell strange, gives a lovely colour and doesn't streak. It also is very cheap. It usually varies from £3-£5 in most chemists. 

After our recent good weather, I managed to catch a good wee colour on my top half, but as nature has it, legs are so hard to tan! So I have been applying Dover Summer Glow on my legs every other day when I come out of the shower or when I'm going to bed. The soft shimmer gives a light sparkle effect. Some people may be put off by this but it gives a fantastic effect if you are going for a night out. I know when my tan starts to fade I will be applying this all over my body for a summer glow in the autumn and winter months.

I'm definitely re-converted to gradual tans. I've realised there are a lot of products I've given up on but when I look back at old pictures, I wonder why. I think you'll see me falling back in love with a lot of stuff over the next few months. 

Stay tuned!
