A DHA free, gradual tanning alternative…
Melvita Prosun Gradual Self Tan – £22
Ive used one or two Melvita products now and I have never been let down. Their under eye cream and facial cleaner are both fantastic and something I use really regularly now, so this is a brand I have certainly grown really fond on. I figured I’d give the Prosun a whirl, as I love my tanning products at the moment. I always use the Dior Bronze Natural Glow
on my face, probably twice a week just to give it a little big of a glow, and because I know it works so well, I never usually stray. But I figured it was time to try something a little different. This also contains no DHA – so it doesn’t have that biscuit smell that other tanners do. Instead it uses more natural ingredients to create the bronzed glow – in more of a vanilla scent.
In the same way as I apply my Dior, I applied this over my face really carefully, making sure that I distributed it over my face equally to avoid streaks. Unlike the Dior, it is quite creamy and moisturising, and it did feel as though I was just applying moisturiser rather than a gel formula as I had expected. But nonetheless, really lovely to apply and does feel really hydrating on the face. This can also be used all over the body if you wish. I always then get into bed, let it sink in for about 30 minutes and then lights out. In the morning, I wash it off my face before applying other products. With the Prosun, I felt as though it had added a light sheen of colour to my face, very subtle and perhaps even subtler than the Dior. Yet again, this is a gradual tanning cream, so perhaps another application the night after might have been even more obvious. But it didn’t streak or leave my skin looking a strange colour, so it is definitely a very natural gradual tan. Thus far, I’m pretty happy with this and I’m definitely going to give it another whirl to see how it builds from a light to a slightly deeper tan. I’ll update this as soon as I know. But I must say for the price, I will probably be sticking with my Dior Bronze in the future.
