First Impressions: Dove Summer Glow Fair to Medium Skin


To any of you who know me personally you can attest to the fact that I am pale! Pale to the point of looking ghostly and pale to the point that without makeup I get asked if I’m ill!

I have never been happy with my skin tone and envied people who could get a lovely tan. I always tone up my face a shade to give some warmth to my face – the power of makeup, but had always been too scared to try out a tan on the body. I didn’t want to risk coming out looking like an orange.

2 colleagues from work recommended that I give the Dove Summer Glow Moisturiser a try as it technically isn’t a full blown tan.

I bought it that night on the way home from work and have been using it the last few days and I am thoroughly impressed.

The product smells amazing (non of that chemically smell that some tan’s get) and is thoroughly hydrating for the skin and gave me an overnight glow! I could tell straight away. The product doesn’t stick to some areas of my body as well as others but I definitely looked tanned (well tanned for me any-ways).

This moisturiser has so far given me the perfect amount of colour and left my skin feeling super smooth. It can be applied with your hand or a mitt for a more even coverage. The only downside to this tan is that some places get more coverage than others. Even using a mitt last night some areas of my skin (whether this is down to me or the product or my skin type I’m not sure) just don’t seem to attract the product.

I will continue to use this product in the summer months and keep you updated on my progress but I am thoroughly impressed by this product as it is the first time in my life I have actually looked tanned!
