Hey bloggies :)
I hope you're all having a good weekend. Today I have my monthly magazine post. My magazine of choice this month is Elle which comes with Rodial Brazilian Tan Tinted Self Tanning Gel. I have very pale skin and have never really been into using fake tan. I've used it a couple of times for special occasions but, to be honest, I can never really be bothered with the upkeep of it. Since it's coming into summer now (although it is raining here today) I thought it would be nice to try a self tanning product.
In Elle you get a 58ml sample. The full-priced product is £35 (150ml). There are three different shades available - clear, light and dark. When I first saw 'clear' I immediately thought it would be a bit pointless. I knew with my pale skin I didn't want to go straight for 'dark' so I went for 'light'. Since buying it I have found out that 'clear' is a gradually building tan which apparently leaves you with a 'natural sun-kissed glow'. If I'd known that at the time I might have gone for this shade but I just think the names a bit strange and it meant I never really looked twice at it.
"Rodial brazilian tan™ Light gives you an instant rich glow that develops into a natural golden tan in 4 hours. Its lightweight gel-like formula dries quickly and evenly without blocking pores."
The gel comes out a sort of caramel colour. I haven't properly used it yet but I did try a little bit on my arm and it blended in really nicely. I'm gonna try this later after I've showered and exfoliated and I hope it will be a great summer product to give a natural sun-kissed look.
Have you tried this product?
What's your favourite fake tan?
