Dolce & Gabbana Summer in Italy The Sicilian Bronzer


Jo has a bit of a thing about Dolce & Gabbana. Every single outfit she ever swoons for in a glossy magazine turns out to be from D&G. And then she looks at the price-tag, and realizes: she’s never going to be the sort of person to spend £2000 on a frock, or £700 on a pair of sunglasses. But £48 for a great bronzer? Doable.

The packaging for this is pure Dolce & Gabbana: summery blue stripes, some swirls, a vaguely religious-looking portrait in the middle. (Trust us, if you whip this out at the table, it’ll get noticed.)

But the bronzing powder itself is fab, too: silky-smooth and entirely matte – albeit in a slightly darker shade than most English roses will get away with at the start of summer, but which will come into its own in about a month. (And if you’ve olive skin, it’ll work right now.)

Basically, just your sexiest-looking bronzer ever. (And saving you maybe a couple of grand, if you prefer to look at it that way.)
