I’ve tried and tested all kinds of fake tanning products with hues from orange to mahogany- and everything in between!
But sometimes exfoliating, moisturising and maintaining a fake tan is just too much hassle. So, out comes the gradual tanner and in this case, the Palmers Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Gradual Tanning Moisturiser.
As the name suggests, it’s a moisturiser that will develop to a lovely bronzed glow after only a few applications. The smell is absolutely gorgeous, exactly like the original cocoa butter, which is far nicer than the typical biscuit scent from most fake tans.
It’s also really easy to apply, soft and gentle on the skin and sinks into the skin really well. The colour is more of a sun-kissed glow rather than a dark tan but it can be built up to achieve a more bronzed look.
The only other gradual tan I like to use is by St Tropez but the Palmers version is much more affordable at only £3.99 per bottle.
