1 Si­enna X Ra­di­ance Body Balm

LOOK’S Gabrielle: I can­not get enough of this. It feels so luxe, yet it’s re­ally af­ford­able. It’s packed with sweet al­mond oil and vi­ta­min E, which keeps skin hy­drated and look­ing young. And bronz­ing-wise it’s per­fect for let­ting that Ibiza glow live on. Natalie: This smells like hol­i­days, and the lit­tle gold flecks that were mixed into the mois­turiser glided on to my skin and blended in to make my body all glowy. Plus, my ac­tual tan lasted for weeks. In LOVE! BEST FOR: GLAM GIRLS

2 Lan­caster Tan Max­imiser Face and Body Cream

LOOK’S Gabrielle: This con­tains Re­in­forced Tan Ac­ti­va­tor Com­plex, aka TAC, which was de­vel­oped by beauty sci­en­tists to pro­long a nat­u­ral melanin re­lease in the skin. This means it boosts your tan as if you were still ex­posed to the sun. Now that’s the kind of chem­istry we can get on board with. Natalie: This is re­ally silky and it felt so sooth­ing on my skin, which was a bit red and peely from the sun. I did need quite a lot to spread all over the body, though, so this could get a lit­tle bit pricey to keep us­ing. BEST FOR: LUXE LOVERS

3 Clar­ins Ra­di­ance-plus Golden Glow Booster For Body

LOOK’S Gabrielle: Talk about a be­spoke glow to go; you can add as many drops of this to your own mois­turiser as you like, mean­ing you get a colour that works for you. It can take a lit­tle while for it to take ef­fect, so go steady and wait for the re­sults to come through. Natalie: Mix­ing the drops of golden­ness with the Clar­ins Mois­ture Rich body Lo­tion was re­ally fun. A lit­tle messy but, once I had it all blended in, it was just like putting my usual mois­turiser on. you just need to make sure you wash your hands after­wards as they can get a lit­tle tanned if not! BEST FOR: COLOUR CON­TROL

4 In­sti­tut Es­the­d­erm Tan Pro­long­ing Body Lo­tion

LOOK’S Gabrielle: If you’ve been a bit, ahem, care­less with the SPF and your skin is way more lob­ster than glowy, then this is the one for you. It has been spe­cially de­signed to cool bod­ies that have over in­dulged in too much sun. bye bye, red­ness. Hello, tan. Phew! Natalie: This is so fancy, so I wasn’t com­pletely sur­prised by the price tag – which is pretty hefty! It left my skin feel­ing silky, but I’m not so sure I could jus­tify spend­ing so much. BEST FOR: AF­TER SUN
