Hey Guys! 
Today I wanted to talk about the "Dove, Summer Glow" 
I've been using this product on and off for a good couple of years now and decided to start using it again just in time for summer. Honestly, I can't stand being pale and feel like everything looks so much better when you've got a nice glow. This lotion is great as it moisturises your skin but also tans at the same time. I also decided to buy the one with added shimmer as I like this look on my skin. I do think this is a great product for the price you pay, however I would recommend these tips (learnt by my own mistakes)...
1) Apply with a mitt:
I made the mistake of applying this without a mitt and for the next week, had very patchy orange hands, really not a good look and a bit of a giveaway too! 

2) Apply Carefully:
As this is a cream formula it's hard to tell where you've put it so just be careful with how much you apply. It normally starts to develop within a few hours. 

3) Layering it up:
This can be used almost like a daily moisturiser but again be warned if you apply loads everyday, there will come a time when this turns your colour very patchy, especially when using with other products and bathing / showering. Sometimes it's best to use a really good body scrub too get rid of it all and start over fresh! 

4) The smell: 
At first this does have a nice scent to it, however I find the more your colour develops so does the smell of the product. I can't explain the scent but i guess you could just say, that "fake tan" smell. This is one of the main reasons I go on and off this product! If it didn't have this odd developing scent i think it would be one of my favourite summer products! 

Hope this helps! Would love to know your thoughts on this product if you've tried it!?

lots of love

  1. I like this product very much, although I can use it only twice a week, cause if I use it more then my elbows and knees become kind of orangey.=)

  2. I am definitely going to give this product a try! Great review :)


  3. I've used this and so have a couple of my family members and it does work! It leaves your skin super smooth and gives such a natural glow! xx
