I know it's only February, but I'm starting to look forward to spring and summer, and have been getting back into fake tan mode after a pale and interesting winter.
I was sent Famous Dave's Gradual 10 to try a little while ago, and have been using it ever since to top up my other fake tans, to keep the colour going longer so I don't have all the faff and mess of a weekly fake tan application.
Gradual 10 contains natural active ingredients and antioxidants, including Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter, Vitamins A & E, and infused with organic ingredients such as Rosehip Oil, Sunflower Oil and Sweet Almond Oil to help care for your skin.
It promises to care for your skin in 10 different ways:
7. Evens out skin tone
8. Delays the effects of ageing
9. Improves skin's elasticity and firmness
10. Develops gradually into a flawless tan
Frankly all 10 could probably be reduced to 2...
1. Is a moisturiser
2. Has a bit of fake tan in it
...but that probably wouldn't be much of a strapline (there's a reason I don't work in marketing).
I generally tend to stay away from gradual tanners even though I'm pale, because they often look quite orange on me. This one definitely gives more of an olivey tan though, so it's a perfect counterpart to weekly tanners such as Xen Tan and St Tropez.
Priced at £17.99 for 250ml, this is at the pricier end of the gradual tan spectrum. But you definitely get what you pay for, and the colour and quality of the product makes it worth it for me. The bottle lasts for ages - I've had this one on the go since at least November and it's still more than half full.
Have you tried any Famous Dave products before?
And just who is Dave, and why is he Famous?
