This gradual tan was the easiest, most hassle free tan out of all three I tried. Michelle says it gives you a 'natural, radiant' tan and I completely agree. I loved the fact that you could apply it with your hands as that made it so much easier and quicker.. It is un-tinted so you just have to make sure that you've thoroughly covered your skin, but applying a couple of layers should solve that problem.

I applied the tan straight after a shower, adding it to my normall moisturising routine. That meant it took no longer than usual for me to get ready. It took just a few minutes to apply, smelt lovely and fresh and developed into a gorgeous, natural, golden tan overnight. It lasted around four days before it began to fade but we applied another layer and it remained intact for almost an entire week.
If you're one of the lucky ladies who's got a real tan from going abroad this summer, this gradual tan can also be used to prolong a natural tan. We do love a multi-tasking product in the Y! Lifestyle office.
Best for: Fair skinned girls that want a natural looking tan and tan phobics who don't want to go too dark too quickly.
