Now we have passed Easter, it feels like everyone is starting to gear up for summer and that includes getting their tan on. I’ve been testing out a few gradual tans and self tanners recently but I can’t sing the praises of Palmers Natural Bronze Gradual Tan.
Gradual tanners had their heyday a few years ago when they burst on to the self tanning scene as an alternative to weekly tanning sessions and that dreaded fake tan smell.
I have struggled to find self tanners that work for me in the past as I have such a yellow tone to my skin, quite a lot of them just don’t show up but the Palmers Natural Bronze Gradual Tan has been a god send.
Famed for their hydrating and nourishing products packed full of cocoa butter, Palmers have been around for longer than I can remember.
The Palmers Natural Bronze Gradual Tan is packed with cocoa butter and vitamin E to moisturise and keep skin supple as you tan. As the name suggests, it really is a natural bronze colour.
There is a really good amount of pigment in this gradual tan, i’d say it definitely leans more towards the flat out self tanner but fear not, an easy application and nice colour is easily achieved.
I didn’t want to show you any photos of my white bits, pre tan but as the amount of tanning pigments is one of the best I have seen in a gradual but it does mean you need to take care on the ‘edges’ of your tan.
I have been applying the Palmers Natural Bronze Gradual Tan with my hands on to freshly moisturised skin and then buffing it in with a velour tan mitt to diffuse.
You can find it on offer in Boots, Superdrug + Tesco at the minute coming in at around £4 which is a bargain for the huge bottle. I have been raving about this so much, everyone I’ve told has been out to snap their own bottles up!
