L'Oreal Paris Elvive Tanning Range - Review

Hello Lovelies!

Did you hear that I went to the Big Smoke last month? If you follow me on twitter, you probably did as my friends moaned that their timeline was full of it - whoops! Anyway, I was lucky enough to go to the launch of L'Oreal Paris's New Elvive Tanning Range and I've finally had an excuse to try it out!

I was super super excited to try their new range out, although some of the products aren't new - It's all been rebranded and repackaged and it looks lovely - I almost didn't want to use it for fear of spoiling it!

I would have liked to try the mist however, I rent my house, and my bathroom isn't particularly tiled so I think I'll have to wait until I'm a little more brave to try that one out! Cheryl Cole is wearing the mist in all of the ad's and from listening to how they applied to to her, they haven't photoshopped it at all so it looks flippin' fab!


The type that I went for was their Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Tinted & Shimmering Gel - I've never used a gel before so I was a touch nervous at how it would turn out, but other than a few blotches here and there due to the fact that my house was freezing and I applied and then got dressed far too quickly - I was very impressed!

It didn't turn out quite as dark as I would have liked, but it gave me a healthy spring-like glow which was nice! It's also got some lovely shimmer and glitter which is fantastic for a party, this part of it does come off in the first shower though so I was a bit gutted when I showered and washed my hair my coctail party and lost all my glitter - but I'll consider it a lesson learned!

I finished off my look just before the party with this nourishing body oil - I love this stuff - I'll wear it even if I get a natural tan as it makes your legs look super moisturised, super glossy and super long and slim! It feels a bit odd and I was slightly afraid to cross my legs but I looked in the mirror and actually liked the look of my legs!

You'll have to excuse my lack of pictures of me with the tan - I wasn't feeling my best and as such there are no photos, but when I next apply it I'll be sure to show you all the finished result!

L'Oreal Paris have extended their tanning line quite a bit so there's something for everybody! Take a look at their website right here!

love and kisses
