Good Morning World!
Overall, I feel like both The Dove summer glow nourishing lotion and the Garnier summer body moisturising lotion, do what they say on the tin and give a very natural and non-patchy looking tan if done correctly. However they both have their pros and cons, and there are a few of them.
I feel that both of these products are very good in this area however there is one that stands out to me more than the other. I feel like the Dove lotion gives more of a pale natural tan, whereas the Garnier one looks more golden and sun kissed, so I guess this one is personal preference, but personally in this area I prefer the Dove one as its buildable and discrete tan.
In this category there is only really one winner and that is the Garnier summer body as it dissolves quicker into the skin and doesn’t leave you feeling sticky. The Dove summer glow is quite the opposite and I often feel that I can’t get dressed for hours after, and this isn’t a trait I look for in a moisturiser.
Both these tanning moisturisers seem to have the same ‘sell by date’ and do run out fairly quickly if you miss a day. However if you keep up to date and apply these products daily they will both last as long as you care to stop using them. They both give a gorgeous day to night glow and I would rate them both a 9 out of 10.
I don’t know if this is a deal breaker for any of you but for me I love a good smelling moisturiser and the Garnier summer body moisturiser smells of apricots and has a far more summer essence than the Dove one.
Overall, both these products are very good value for money, and I cant deny that they do what it says on the tin, but personally I find myself reaching for the Garnier Summer Body moisturising lotion more, and therefore give that a win.
