“Smells bad but good colour”

Written on: 19/05/2014 by Qwertyuiopasdfghjklzxcvbnm1234567890 (1 review written)

I first found this tinted moisturiser to be a nice colour and left legs feeling smooth, however after a few days of using it I decided to put it on before bed so I wouldn't be sticky the next day. I could not bare lying in my bed while I smelt horrible, the smell of this product is awfully and my bed sheets stunk of it… Read Full Review

“Really good”

Written on: 01/02/2014

I have been using this product for years and I am very happy with it. I am not keen on the brands that are drying on the skin and fade in patches. Dove does as it says: it moisturises the skin and fades quite evenly. I exfoliate the night before and moisturise. Apply Dove the next morning after showering and drying when there are no 'sock marks' etc on the body. If possible just wear a dressing gown for an hour to allow it to dry in. I usually reapply the 2nd and maybe 3rd morning… Read Full Review

“Winner”

Written on: 11/12/2013 by Amandab93 (1 review written)

I first bought dove self tanner a couple months ago cos it was on offer at superdrug, the first time I tried it I was plesently surprise with how thick the texture was (I like them to be thick so you don't get streaks). This product does take a while to dry and can leave your skin feeling very sticky. The smell - I would probably give this product about a 4 (with 5 being the highest) I never have been keen on self tanning smells and to be honest this product isn't great for its smell but it's… Read Full Review

“Fine for 1 application. BAD RASH AFTER SECOND. ”

Written on: 01/12/2013 by Southernnorthern (1 review written)

As a red head, I do not tan. So gradual tanners have always been a saviour for me. I used to use the Johnson's Holiday Skin, but I developed a rash after using the bottle over a period of time. I switched to Dove recently. And I could not be more horrified. After one application, I had a slight tan. But after the second, I developed a hideous, red, bumpy rash all over my legs. I will never use this product again… Read Full Review

It's probably not the Dove itself but the type of DHA in it that you are allergic to in particular

“Not too shabby!”

Written on: 02/08/2013 by SheiDeee (3 reviews written)

I haven't been using this brand for long, but it isn't bad for a bottle of fake tan. So far so good, it hasn't left any noticeable streaks, smudges or smears although I'm not impressed with the scent that it leaves behind on your skin. I don't mind scented fake tan, but the smell of Dove was quite pungent; it's not like I can just wash the stuff off either! I'd advise those who are considering this product to use with caution, it does what it says on the tin but it can make you less attractive… Read Full Review

“Love it!”

Written on: 23/07/2013 by Sabrina_x (1 review written)

I've been using this off and on for the past 4 years. It's the best gradual tan I have used at a reasonable price if you shop in the right place. I gave it 4 stars as it is incredibly sticky once applied and takes a long time to dry off completely. The smell is okay, nicer than others I have smelt in the past. I use medium to dark and it comes out like a lovely Golden tan like you've been abroad somewhere hot for a week or 2. However it does need a few applications as can come out streaky, the… Read Full Review

“Beautiful glow, disgusting smell!”

Written on: 21/05/2013 by madz77 (2 reviews written)

Dove Summer Glow loses a star, simply due to its horrible stench after 15mins of applying it. I have an olive complexion and use the normal to dark colour. I apply it once or twice a day (a fair amount. Some people make the mistake of applying WAAAY too much and get streaky or patchy). This tanner gives me just what its name states: a very beautiful, golden brown Summer Glow. It doesn't give me much of a tan, but rather a very healthy, natural looking glow instead and I love it! The only times… Read Full Review

“Gradual is the perfect word”

Written on: 19/05/2013

This product look ideal for me, gradual was what i wanted and i've just started using it it. I am noticing slight results however i've only used it for two days. I believe that gradual is the perfect word to describe this product, it will take a long time to achieve a tan that others will comment on and i think that exfoliating before hand (scrubbing with a sugar scrub) its probably the best thing to to to receive max potential in the colouring. I didn't like how on the package it doesn't give… Read Full Review

“Great result, horrible smell”

Written on: 27/04/2013 by catrianne (1 review written)

I've only been using this for one day, but I've seen an immediate effect. First I started to use it to cover some old acne scars, and it hasn't really worked, but as it doesn't say it'll cover scars I won't use this against the product. People have noticed my colour, and as I only chose the fair-medium shade, it isn't too obvious, just as though I've had a healthy sun tan. The only down point is the smell. Originally, I thought it was my pajamas, as I slept in the tan lotion overnight, but as I… Read Full Review

“GIVEN ME AN HORRENDOUS RASH”

Written on: 16/04/2013

Loved this fake tan when I first started using it (about a month ago). I'm now on my 2nd bottle and have come out in a terrible rash, so I w'ont/c'ant use it again. There is no smell and dried very quickly on me. I would recomend this product to anyone but would suggest to test it 1st on a small area of skin. Never had a problem with other cheaper brands so will go back to Garnier. Would like to have known,or know if any one else has had this problem… Read Full Review

“Dove Summer Glow”

Written on: 27/11/2012

I think the dove summer glow moisturizer is very good becuase it looks very natural and it doesnt go patchy. I use this product every night, depending if i want it to be darker or not. I would defanatly recomend this product to a friend because it is natatural and its easy to apply. Its cheap and lasts a very long time. The thing i didnt like about this product is that it takes a long time to dry. I think it would take about 2-3 hours to dry depending on how much you put on… Read Full Review

“The Big Difference- Comments vs Compliments.”

Written on: 15/09/2012

I gave this product 5 stars because it really does give me a natural looking tan. I find it easy to use and it's great that I can control how tanned I want to be. For example if I just want a light glow I'll only apply it once or twice but if I want a darker tan that makes me look like a beach babe, I'll apply it up to four times in one day, just making sure I let it dry properly before each application. In the past whenever I've used other tanning products I usually feel self-conscious about… Read Full Review

“Natural tan”

Written on: 08/09/2012 by Zoe_af (1 review written)

I love this lotion, it doesn't smell bad at all in my opinion unlike many other fake tans. It gives you natural brown (not orange) tan. It can be a little greasy, so not great for oily/ spot prone skin types. I use it on my face and body. It is the perfect fake tan for summer… Read Full Review

“Not bad”

Written on: 30/08/2012 by MrTambourineMan (12 reviews written)

I borrowed this off the good lady wife a few weeks ago prior to going to a BBQ with my friends. My pasty (I work in an office all day) skin, needed something to make it look like I had been out at least once this summer - well, it worked. My dread was that I'd go orange and look like a fool, but that didn't happen. The colour was faint and very real looking - I even had people in the office thinking that I'd actually got a tan over the weekend! I would actually use it again as people said I… Read Full Review

“Does it run in the shower?”

Written on: 25/07/2012

I hadnt tanned before but i wanted a natural tan and saw this, i used a fair amount, didnt want to go overboard as it was my first time! I was worried it would run in the shower, so i left it about 4 hours to dry. it was fine after i panicked because if i wanted to wear shorts and not want people to know i had tanned and had it all running down my legs i wouldnt know what to do it was my first time lol! but it looked good, i was pleased all round and no one noticed id cheated the summer glow… Read Full Review
