Summer holidays may almost be a distant memory but that relaxed aesthetic doesn’t have to be.
More subtle than your regular ol’ tan, they’re like a tinted moisturiser for your body, giving you buildable colour that makes you feel like you’re still lazing on a beach. Simply apply before bed, hit the sheets and wake up to your chosen level of bronze. Here are the gradual tans The Glow team loves.
1. Bondi Sands.
When she needs a quick hit, Glow Guide Producer Brittany swears by Bondi Sands.
“It was actually my younger sister that introduced me to Bondi Sands Everyday Gradual Tan Tanning Milk, $17.99 and I am so glad she did. I’m the kind of person who actually gets paler over summer thanks to my religious slathering of SPF 50+, so I wanted a little bit of colour before I returned to the office,” she says.
"One coat of the delicious cocoa butter chocolate-y scented deliciousness and a few hours later I had a subtle but believable glow. Because it is a slightly darker colour than normal gradual tans you do have to pay extra attention to application (big circular motions) but that said it's pretty foolproof!"
