( Garnier Ambre Solaire After Sun Hydrating Tan Maintainer – £7.49 at Boots )
Before you dismiss this post as it is about after sun and of course we are in a dark and rainy winter right now, I wanted to let you know that this product is much more than just an after sun. This is the product I use to gain a natural tan – alike to the Johnsons and Dove tan enhancers. This product is perfect to use after you have been in the sun on holiday as it is really cooling, soft and refreshing. But more than that, after application, the tan maintainer ingredients begin to activate and start to enhance your glow. Even if I haven’t been in the sun, I apply this for one or two days before an evening out for example and it gives a beautiful, natural and streak free (if you apply correctly) natural tan. I really love it and always pick up another bottle when it is on offer. It can be quite pricey, so if it is on 2 for 1 or half price, I always snatch some up. It does have the usual biscuit smell, but not to the extent of the Johnsons or Dove products and I can live with it because it is so good at what it does. It probably takes about an hour or so to properly settle into your skin and you’re better to not cover any of your skin with tight clothing for a few hours after, as it will pull off the product. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new tan enhancer.
