I hadn’t had time to slap on a coat of fake tan and felt my legs were a totally different shade from my face and shoulders (thanks to the boy for pointing that out when I was wearing shorts on my return from my Mauritius trip) – so I went for a quick fix of slapping on some of this bronzing goodness from Caudalie…
It really is a lovely product, the shade looks scary in the bottle – but when applied it blends to a really natural look. Plus there’s a hint of shimmer so it leaves your legs looking like they’re glowing and healthy (not glitter ball at all).
Plus sides to this are that it’s easy to blend in with your hands and no fear of orange palms developing as the tint washes of. It looks really natural and much less risky than a regular tan. It also leave skin feeling really soft and smooth.
It does stay put all day, with the caveat of if it is especially hot it can go a little patchy if you cross your legs (sweaty backs of knees…not nice, but unavoidable in 30 degree heat in London) so that’s a little ‘flag’ for this. I probably wouldn’t dare wear with anything pale in case it transfers at all!
For a quick fix ‘perfect legs’ look – this is great though. Just be careful if it’s really hot and there’s a sweat risk…. no crossing of legs allowed!
