Summer skin prep…


It’s that time of year when we need to get our pasty white winter skin out as the sun has decided to show its face. So before I don my vest tops and shorts I like to do a bit of skin prep! I thought I would share some of my favourite products with you.

1. E45 Silky Radiance Body Lotion £3.99

If I suddenly have to show some skin, this is fabulous. It leaves a slight shimmer on the skin that’s forgiving on blemishes, veins or dryness. Definitely one to have in the bathroom cabinet.

2. Fake Bake Beyond Bronzer Wash-Off Tan £7 

This is a summer must have. This wash off tan is natural, streak free and doesn’t stain. It is the easiest way to create a temporary, instant glamorous and golden tanned look.

3. Fake Bake Faux Glo Instant Tan £13.50

As it’s a spray this is so easy to put on and is so much better than other self tans I’ve tried. It comes off easily with soap and water.

4. Garnier Ambre Solaire No Streaks Bronzer £9.75 

It does what it says on  the label. It gives an even streak free tan and is also very moisturising, which I like. The spray application works at any angle making it easy to apply.

5. Clarins Self Tanning Instant Gel £20

I love this self tanner, it doesn’t smell great but gives an even, real looking tan. Make sure you rub it in well so it really sinks into the skin. It really is fab and is strong enough to only need applying once, maybe twice a week.

6. Decleor Aroma Sun Expert £20.30

This gives more colour in one go than the others and so again only needs to be applied once a week, possibly two. This is in my opinion is one of the best tanners and smells OK too.


St Tropez Gradual Tan £20 This is a fabulous every day tanner as it goes on easily and doesn’t leave streaks (honestly I think its impossible to get streaks from this). Its a moisturiser perfect for achieving an all year round summer glow.
