Everybody got a little excited (including me) with the introduction of a tanning range in Penney’s. I certainly wanted to try them out so I purchased the body gradual tan (as I do love a gradual tan as it’s moisturizing and natural looking) and I also purchased the instant tan, here is a review on that >>>
Now onto the gradual tan 🙂
It is available in select Penneys/Primarks. Generally new products slowly make there way around each store. I purchased mine in The Crescent SC Penney’s Limerick and they had a large amount.
It comes in a handy squeezy tube which I find brilliant as you can use all of the product! It contains 150ml which is about normal for a gradual tan.
It claims to be a subtle glow daily moisturiser for all skin types.
As you can see above there is also a face gradual tanner. Picture credit to evoke.ie 🙂
As I said before I really like the packaging, the design is very simple but sleek.
It has a lovely scent that I cannot think of exactly what it is, but it’s very tropical and I really like it.
The product itself is a white cream that applies very like a heavy moisturiser. Also a little goes a long way.
I found it took about 3 applications over the course of 2 days for me to notice any sort of a tan. Therefore I definitely agree it is a subtle glow.
After the third application it had become very patchy on the inside of my elbows and I would not have dry skin as I regularly moisturise and exfoliate.
So I would not agree that it is for all skin types. I don’t think this product would be suitable for anybody with dry skin.
The patchiness was quite difficult to get in a picture but in person it was quite bad.
It showered off very evenly.
Overall I’m not too impressed with it. It is not dark enough for me and of course I don’t want a patchy tan.
I may use it again if I’ve run out of all my other tans lol but I cannot see myself repurchasing this product.
This product is available in select Penney’s for €5.
