L'Oréal Summer Glow Gradual Tan

If you live in Ireland, you've probably noticed that the sun has been shining all day. This is a pretty big deal, considering the weather has been absolutely awful here for quite a while. It definitely got me in the summer mood (even if it is still freezing cold), so I said I'd do a quick review on a recent purchase - L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Summer Glow Lotion.

I'm definitely someone who loves gradual tans - although I love dark, instant tans if I'm going out, I can't justify the effort to be bronzing with them on a daily basis. I picked this up around two weeks ago and have been using it pretty regularly ever since.

First impressions? I love this. As soon as you put it on, the subtle shimmer will literally make your skin glow. It feels very moisturising, and in my opinion just smells like a nicely scented moisturiser. I leave this on overnight, and wake up with a gorgeous, subtle tan. This can definitely be built up to your desired colour, but I found I was happy with the first day.

I purchased the "medium tan", as even though I'm quite pale, I do like a stronger result. This is available in Boots for 9.99, which is reasonable for such a large bottle which will last quite a while!
