The Irish are known for their pale skin. My skin goes beyond the usually stereotypical image and is beyond pale. I'm very worried about damaging it so I always use high protection sun cream and would never dream of going to a tanning bed shop. I usually embrace my paleness and have rarely worn fake tan. I have tried gradual tans in the past but they always turned out dreadful.
About a week ago in Ireland we got over a week of AMAZING weather. (Very unusual for Ireland!) Like usual I covered up in high protection sun cream so didn't get much of a colour. I'd rather be pale than damage my skin. However, I did begin to get a bit jealous because everyone had amazing tans! Strangely enough I then got an email asking if I wanted to try out Dove Summer Glow. Perfect timing.
I used gradual tans in the past and found them terrible. Very streaky and very fake looking. However, I was so impressed by the Dove version. I tried Fair to Medium skin and it suits my skin perfectly. No streaks and after two applications I have a gorgeous natural glow. Very very impressed! It doesn't smell on application but there is a very slight fake tan smell after. However, I was so pleased with the results this would not bother me at all.
Overall really really impressed, easy to apply and a gorgeous natural colour. Well done Dove!
