Fake Tan Minus The Smell

If I had it my way, I would constantly have a gorgeous tan that never fades and never streaks and never has a horrible 'I'm obviously wearing fake tan' smell. Realisticly, I never have time to maintain a fake tan and I'm so bad at applying I always end up looking streaky.

A while ago, Tanya Burr did a haul video and one of the things she purchased was Garnier Summer body. What she said made me decide I wanted to try it as it sounded ideal for someone like me.

My first impression was that the scent was amazing. I could not smell any fake tan at all, just pure apricot which also remained on my skin and left me smelling pretty good if I do say so myself. I also love that it's a white cream so it's not so intimidating. I honestly I think I prefer gradual tans as any mistakes made (in my case it's normally a lot) aren't so obvious and it allows you to build up a natural looking tan.

With other gradual tans, I found that it takes a very long time to build up enough to actually look tanned and normally by that point I've given up as it's not worth it. However, after just two uses, it was noticed by others that I was looking tanned. The only little tiny downside is that the apricot smell does goes away a little the next day and you are left with a very slight tan smell - but this is a gradual tan not a miracle worker.

I'm pretty sure I've just rambled a lot in this post but I hope you get the idea of how great this product really is. I've probably missed out all of the important bits but I'm sure you'll forgive me after you use it yourself. :)

PS I purchased the dark instead of the slight based on Tanya's recommendation and it isn't 'dark-dark' but it provides a better gradual tan.

PPS I just looked up the price online and it is currently HALF PRICE at Boots. I am definitely going to stock up - you can buy it online here.
