Achieve A Summer Glow All Year Round With Dove♥️

Fake tan is not really an area which I often talk about, mainly because I don't use them as I'm so ghostly pale I'd look stupid with tan (truly blessed being Scottish). On the odd few occasions where I'm dressed up fancy and need a bit of a tan to look less ghostly, I use the Dove Derma Spa Summer Revived Gradual Tanning Body Lotion for fair to medium skin, you know, just for that summer glow.

 I first used this lotion a few years back and I was really impressed by it. It comes out looking like an ordinary lotion due to being white in colour, and this does mean that it's hard to see whether or not you have applied it evenly, which is potentially the only downfall. It has quite a thin consistency but it is not runny in any way at all. There is a strong, distinctive smell, but it is one which is rather pleasant as opposed to the typical fake tan smell (which I despise). After applying, you must give it time to sink into the skin, or else you will feel greasy and sticky; I usually apply in the evenings when going into my jammas so that they are light against my skin. Unlike other fake tans, it doesn't end up all over your clothes, leaving that dreaded orange streaks that everyone hates, especially if you go shopping and try on white clothes (PET HATE!!)


The best part about this tan is that it's a body lotion, meaning that not only will it leave your skin with a natural glow but also moisturise your skin at the same time so it's a win win situation really. For me, my skin really gets on with this lotion and I am able to see the tan beginning to show within 1 to 2 uses. I have the lotion for fair to medium skin, although you can invest in the medium to dark skin lotion here.

This lotion is definitely a fake tan that I will return to many times. It doesn't appear orange toned in the slightest which I know many fake tans can do. It has a pleasant scent, moisturises my skin AND leaves me with a summer glow - who could resist it?!

Will you be swapping your usual fake tan for this one any time soon?

  7. Love this post! I cannot stand fake tan, I only ever have bad experiences with it so I always opt for a gradual moisturising tan. I love this Dove one and have used it loads! I'm now trying the skinny tan version which I absolutely love! Definitely recommend! Robyn xx
