Hello lovely readers,
Another beautiful day here in London, I really can’t believe! I don’t know about you but I love a little tan during the summer months. This year, I’m not going for any proper beach holidays so the juicy “Costa del Sol” sort of tan is off the table but I’ve decided not to give up and make the most of the summer here in London. Saying that I’ve been testing/ using a self-tan lotion by Lavera and I thought I will share it with you.
So the brand is called Lavera and the product name is Self- Tanning Lotion Lavera Naturkosmetik. This is a German brand which I find very affordable ( across all their product ranges) and we all like affordable so why not to try.
I’ve used it on my legs mainly, torso and arms/hands. It has consistently of a lotion which I like and the smell is very pleasant. However, during application, it has to be evenly spread otherwise it will create the brown lines all over. The lotion is quite thick so it has to massage into the skin until it disappears completely.
The end colour it’s golden – brown and it goes nicely with lighter skin tones like mine ( photos below).
The tan stays on up to 3 – 5 days I would say and comes up after 2-3 hours from application. I put it on before going to sleep, so it’s nice and brown in the morning.
It’s 100% natural with organic macadamia oil and organic sunflower oil as one of the main ingredients.
Overall it’s a good product! Solid 7/10
The below photos show the small difference after 1 application. It’s perfect for those who don’t want to jump between shades too much or gradually build them over time.
