LDN Skins - The best gradual tan out there!

This one's new on the market I suppose and is made by a UK based company. We recently had a mini heatwave in the UK which I absolutely dreaded but it reminded me of this product hiding in my vanity.

Unlike many instant tans out there, this one's a more grown up version of its counterparts hence called the Gradual tan. What it means is that it takes its time to develop on the skin until you can actually see the colour peeping through - say about a day or so.

It develops into a gorgeous caramel colour and its well worth the wait. No hint of orange, just a light caramel bronze with brown undertones to it. As you may have already conjured, it's suitable for the paler ladies out there or those who prefer a natural, healthy looking glow instead of a sun kissed, full-on bronze goddess look.

What makes it different?

- Non tacky formula, absorbs easily
- Does not clog pores
- Organic, paraben free ingredients
- Transfer resistant 
- Smells lovely!

Has a lovely floral scent to it unlike other offensive smelling ones in the market. I love the mitt that it comes with. Now you'd say how can one love a mitt. But this is larger and more velvety that your usual drugstore one, ensuring a flawless application and a streak-free finish.

A gradual tan I discovered is a foolproof option if you don't want to look like an oompa-loompa. It's moisturising formula is more forgiving on dry areas, although exfoliating is a must. The staying power of this makes is suitable for 3-4 days wear however it is recommend on the bottle to top up every 2-3 days for the tan to develop fully and last longer.

A 200ml slick black bottle retails for £22 and should last a while. I have to say though that it is easy to overuse especially if you do an entire body self tan, as it as it's quite subtle.
