    The Gradual Tanning Lotion is an intensely moisturizing cream designed to build a steady, even tan. With frequent application, a year round golden glow is attainable, with the ability to intensify the depth of colour achieved with reapplication. It can also be used to extend the life of an existing tan, with a superior formula devised to hydrate and nourish the skin. Rich and smooth in texture, this sun safe lotion will ensure a streak free, sun kissed tone develops after just one application.

Darker than expected

I am pretty pale, and I opted for this gradual tanner in the hopes that it would give me a natural and "light" glow without going too dark or orange. It was relatively easy to apply - I used The Base Tanning Mitt - but it was difficult to see where you had applied product, and as a result it ended up being streaky. The colour was nice but a shade darker than I expected. No big deal, it still looks natural and definitely not orange! I will be more careful next application and enlist some help to reach my back.

Sephora works best with portrait mode.
