Faking It: Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion

garnier summer body moisturising lotion

I am pale. Like really pale. Like most pale girls I find it hard to find foundations and such that match my skin tone. So about 2 years ago I decided to start trying fake tan products. I was not looking to find my inner bronzed goddess rather just have more variation in the products I could use. Little did I know tanning is difficult and with pale skin every single streak is very noticeable.

One product that my inexperienced little pale hands seemed to agree with though was Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion. It comes in two shades, one for lighter skin tones and a deep sun-kissed look. I personally prefer the deep sun-kissed look version as it does not give a very dark tan and I find it lasts longer on the skin. It retails for around €6.99 for a 250ml bottle.

I apply the lotion after I get out of the shower after I have exfoliated. I use a tan mitt and generally just apply a thick layer of the moisturiser to my arms, chest, neck and face. I find this does not break my out but as I don't not have sensitive skin on my face, I perhaps would not advise this for everyone. Usually by the evening the tan will start to show and the following day I will have a nice sun-kissed glow.

This is such a simple product, that will give you an easy tan that will last for a few days with minimum streaks. It says it has a summer fresh fragrance but I find that fades fast and it does not have a very strong fake tan scent. So for you pale girls wanting to fake it maybe give Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion a try for an easy, inexpensive glow.
