Alverde Tanning Lotion | Review

As we all know, summer is the time to get your skin a beautiful tan and I, for one, love the summer glow! Unfortunately, I don't get the time to go too often to the pool and get a natural sun tan, so I opt for a tanning lotion to do the job. Also, it seems to me that tanning lotions (especially the ones with all sorts of oils and stuff) are actually healthier for your skin than the sun rays, which can be seriously damaging. So I thought it might be time for me to share the tanning lotion that I've been using in the past months and loved. I have to say that I haven't really used a lot of tanning lotions as to say I'm an expert or anything like that, but so far this has been my favorite: the Alverde lotion (from the DM store).


What I love most about this lotion is the fact that it does not look orange on you, it's not streaky (if applied the right way) and it soaks into your skin pretty fast. Alright, let's take it step by step and tell you all the details. It is a white colored lotion, which means you can't really see if you have blended it properly, but what I do is just massage it super well into my skin, so I know it's not streaky. It does have a bit of a tanning lotion scent, but I wouldn't say it's a bad smell or anything like that. I use this both on my body and on my face and don't have any problem breaking out or anything like that, so it's a great over-all self tanner. I also like the fact that it contains a lot of natural essential oils, which I think is why it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth after using this. The color it gives you looks very natural, at least in my opinion, and you can definitely build it up by using it for a few days.

To sum up all that info, here are my pros and cons of this product:

PROs

  1. Inexpensive: was about 5-6 $
  2. Contains natural oils, leaving soft skin.
  3. Does not make you look orange.
  4. Great for both face & body.

CONs

  1. Does have a bit of a self-tanner scent, but nothing nasty.
  2. White colored, you can't see where you applied it properly and where you didn't.

I definitely recommend this product to any of you who are just starting out using self-tanners. By the way, I'm not affiliated or anything with this brand. I just really like this tanning lotion and I am enjoying it a lot at the moment!
