Every one loves a tan, right? A natural glow to make us look and feel more confident. Well, I am a little lucky. My family originate from Cyprus and I have inherited a natural tan. But that doesn't mean I don't crave a glowing tan too! When every one else starts to get that little bit tanned, I start to feel white as a ghost! I try and get in the sun to tan as and when I can, but with the weather we've had in Britain this summer, no natural tan can be found!

So instead, I have turned to tanning lotions. This particular one was suggested to me by my friend Hayley who runs Wife Life Beauty xo. So I picked it up and thought it was worth at least giving a go! I've been using this almost every day now for around 3 weeks and so I think it's time I reviewed it! 

The Garnier Summer Body Tanning Moisturiser boasts that it gradually builds a natural and sun-kissed looking tan, as well as providing 12 hours of moisturising properties to your skin. This isn't just a summer product - it can be used all year round! 

I apply this when I get out of the shower, and it leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and moisturised all day. It does have that familiar tanning lotion scent to it, but it's not overpowering and I actually quite like the scent! (OK, I like it a lot!) It definitely gives me a natural looking tan and I have loved using this, and it's lasting forever, too! 

There is one downside to this, although there is only one! And that is that no matter how much I exfoliate before use, this leaves a slight orange tan look to my feet! But with that being the only downside, overall this is a winning product for me! 

Have you tried this? Do you have any recommendations for other tanning moisturisers? Let me know!
