This Works Perfect Legs Gradual Tan
At Beauty Bible we're already B-I-G fans of This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle: a smooth bronzing serum for legs which has for the past couple of years been a godsend in springtime, when soaring temperatures can send us scurrying to the nearest loo to remove our tights - only to reveal legs the colour of unbaked pastry. Never a good look. (See also Tuesday's blog posting, about Spray de Solé.) Immediately it launched, in fact, Perfect Legs Skin Miracle (from Vogue beauty guru Kathy Phillips) became our universal quick-fix for pale legs because it smooths on in the blink of an eye creating a gorgeous tanned finish: no streaking, and none of the biscuit tin/hamster cage aroma still so common to fake tannery.
Now along comes Perfect Legs Gradual Tan, which does indeed have a touch of self-tanner in the serum formula. It still delivers the instant bronzitude of the original, but s-l-o-w-l-y, a sun-kissed glow appears which won't wash off again. Simply top up as required, when you've reached the desired shade. It contains natural-source DHA and erythulose (a sugar-derived tanning agent), plus vits C and E. (No Hobnobby hints as this develops, however.)
So when that fleeting, premature summer returns again, we're completely ready to throw Wolfords to the wind...
