have pale skin with light hair and I never seem to achieve a natural looking tan. I go red instead. I have always had difficulty in finding a light sunkissed glow for my face. Natural body tanners are far too harsh for my face and I end up looking quite silly. I was therefore pleased to have discovered a product from Olay which suits me perfectly.
I am now using Olay Everyday Sunshine Light Sunkissed Glow. This comes in 2 shades, one for lighter skin, such as mine, and the other in a darker skin tone. I remember when these first came out on the market and there were selling them for about £8 a tube which I thought was far too expensive at the time. I buy mine from Home Bargains for only 99p a tube, which I think is a great low price for this product.
I don't like the smell of this product. I do think that these tubes are past their best as they are an older design on the front and possibly for this reason the aroma is slightly 'off'. Unless this is just the way it's supposed to smell.
These 'sunshine tubes. Contain a gradual tan which slowly builds up and you can make your face as light or as dark as you wish, gradually and naturally, over a period of time. They contain vitamin E and a UVB /UVA protection and in my personal experience, they sink into my skin really well on application.
This small tube stands on its end so the contents are easily squeezed out and it has a small blue little lid which flips back. The cream is medium consistency, slightly off white in colour and I apply this to my face and neck in light upwards strokes. I take care to avoid the hairline or the eyebrows and I always use it at night so that when I wake my complexion has a light and natural glow.
It sinks in well and I sometimes apply a light moisturiser on top. I do not use this every night, probably around two times a week. It doesn't streak, is light and natural looking and gives me the kind of glow I just cannot seem to get myself if I sit outside in the sunshine.
I love this product from Olay and for this price I think it's a real bargain. It's just a shame about the smell, but this does fade by the next morning. I give it 4 starts out of 5 due to the smell.
