I received this a while ago in a goodie bag at a blogging event and was pleased to discover the brand is cruelty free. With summer here, I thought I’d try it on my pasty neck and arms which seem to tan a lot slower than the rest of me.
I really love the simplicity of the packaging with the little logos and pearlised effect which makes it look like a luxury item.
This product smells gorgeous! Vanilla with other more tropical notes and the argan oil makes it so creamy it’s a dream to apply! The colourless cream sinks in fairly quickly but doesn’t drag some others I’ve used. There’d be no messing about standing star fish shaped waiting for it to dry.
My skin is medium toned and I’d been out in the sun on-and-off for two days. Although I definitely wouldn’t have described my skin as tanned in any way, I was already too ‘tanned’ for this to show up! I applied one coat and let it develop for three hours then applied another generous coating. Three hours later and er, not much difference. I took a photo to show you the result but it just didn’t show up on camera. Obviously I was expecting too much for the ‘light’ version. This is perfectly suited to someone with incredibly pale skin who wants a bit of colour.
Gorgeous scent – I’d buy this as a perfume!
No overpowering biscuit after scent.
Easy to apply evenly.
Incredibly subtle, perfect for pale skinned girls.
Incredibly subtle, therefor rubbish for me.
This product normally retails at £12.50
I can’t wait to try the darker version of this!
