Elemis Tan Accelerator SPF 4
Advantages: stopped me from burning, went a long way
Disadvantages: pricey, but a good product
I am sorry to say that I do use a lot of beauty products and love to try new ones all the time whenever they come out, this does not do my bank balance any good but is almost a hobby of mine.
When this was first aired on QVC it was being sold as a part of a kit and I was keen to try it but missed out because I forgot to order to it and went out. When I got home, it has sold out.
The next time it was on air I grabbed it, I wasn't missing out this time!
I wasn't expecting it to change my life but I was hoping it my stop me from burning all the time in the summer, even though I use sun cream.
I have very fair skin and flecks of red in my hair, plus freckles. As you would imagine I burn just looking at the sun and have even burnt in the car and under a parasol. I use a very strong sunscreen but still sometimes burn and never, ever tan.
When I got this home I started to apply it morning and night after showering in the build up to the hotter weather.
At this time I worked in a nursery and would spend a lot of time outside. I was hoping that this would help me to perhaps get a slight tan and not just go red or stay completely white.
I applied it my face, neck and body and even my feet and hands. It was pleasant to use and had a soft aroma, that wasn't too overpowering.
After using it for about 2 weeks, the weather started to get hot and I started to wear vest tops to work. I continued to use my sunscreen.
After a week, I hadn't burnt at all and had a slight colour to my face. I was pleased with this and continued to use it all the time.
By the end of the summer I had not burnt at all and had developed a very good colour for me, not brown an golden, just a hint of colour making me look more healthy. The colour was even and lasted, fading much slower than my friends' tans.
I have continued to use tan accelerators since then and mainly use this one when it's in stock. I feel they help my skin and stop it from burning. I would reccommend this to anyone looking for a tan whether you want to be the colour of des o'connor, or just look a bit healthier.
