Top 3 | Gradual Tanners

I use gradual tanners on my arms all the time to make my skin look a little less pale and have a healthy glow. Sometimes I don't bother if i'm wearing jumpers all the time but in Summer I up my game and I go between these three. I thought i'd share them since they're all easy to use and perfect if you don't want a heavy fake tan look.

St Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Lotion in Light/Medium - £14.50 - This is the most expensive but it has the best smell and works well all over the body. The smell is the best thing as it is floral and fresh whilst having the least fake tan smell. It looks very natural on and wears really well. I have repurchased this a few times when it is on offer since I love the finish it gives.

Dove Derma Spa Summer Revival in Fair to Medium £6.99 - This is very similar to the St Tropez in the finish it gives however it has more of a fake tan smell. It isn't very strong and I don't really notice it that much. It has a pleasant scent when you apply it as well as feeling very moisturising. I really like the look of this one and the fact I can quickly apply it and the next day the finish is very natural.

Garnier Summer Body Moisturising Lotion - £5.49 - This was my favourite for a long time however the scent is the strongest the next day and the colour isn't as natural as the other two. My favourite way to use this is on my legs as they're paler than my arms. When I use it on my legs it gives an instant, more tanned colour to the skin. The light shade looks more natural than the deep which can lean a little yellow. 

I have used all of these for a long time and love them all. The Dove is probably my favourite for the price and the finish it gives on the skin. The St Tropez smells lovely whilst still looking very natural. The Garnier gives the most colour but has the strongest smell. If you have fair skin but want to look a little more tanned this Summer I would definitely recommend giving any of these a try. What are your favourite gradual tanners?
