2014 blogger challenge | skincare

January 17, 2014

Even though I read waaaay too many beauty blogs, I wouldn't class myself as a beauty blogger or even a beauty fan. With a limited skincare and make up routine, you'd all laugh at my half hearted attempts at a 'what's on my face' or a 'how much is my face worth?' post. If I'm perfectly honest, my face costs very little and that's why I was worried when I saw the second topic for the #2014BloggerChallenge, which was skincare.
Then I remembered my favourite moisturiser and suddenly my brain decided to work again. It's called Garnier Summerbody, a gradual tanner which is said to "gradually build a natural looking sunkissed tan" whilst also moisturising for 12 hours.
For a beauty novice, this product is great. I don't smell of biscuits for days after applying it, and don't need to wait forever to put my clothes back on as the moisturiser sinks into the skin within five minutes. It's known around the world as a perfect starting point in the fake tan world, and I completley agree with the general view that it's great. I don't own a mitt, but I can dollop this tan on any part of my body and it doesn't come out in streaks. Another great thing is that when I wash my hands after applying to avoid the dreaded 'orange hands' look, a slight amount of the product has already soaked in which means when I wake up the next morning I have a slight tan, just like I would if I was on holiday!
At only £7.99 a bottle, and only £3.80 something when it's on offer, I'd reccomend this product so much. Personally, I like buying the 'dark' bottle because when I bought the light shade I didn't notice much of a change, but if you're very, very pale ot only want a slight tan, the light shade may be more to your taste.
Have you ever used Garnier Summerbody?

  1. Oh I haven't tried this one! I tried the one from Johnson's long ago but it made my legs all orange and streaky! Wasn't a good look, haha. I'll keep this one in mind next time I want to get a head start on tanning before a holiday! :)


    1. Oh no- I hate it when people have streaky legs, its so embarrassing!:o xx
