For the past god-know-how-many-years whether I've been catching a few good old english summer sun rays in the back garden or jetting around the world sunning myself in various excotic locations on my Gap Yah (OH GOD TAKE ME BACK!) my Lancaster Tan Maximiser Soothing Moisturizer, like a trusty, loyal old friend has always accompanied me and done exactly what it promises...
I adore this after sun face & body moisturiser because it's super lightweight, immediately absorbed even on the face (NO stickiness/residue whatsoever so it gets a million thumbs up from me and is good for oily skin!), non comodogenic - so I can slather it on my blemish-prone sensitive skin and don't wake up with pesky pimples - plus it gives a delicious, soothing sensation and subtle glow to your limbs and SMELLS BLOODY YUMMY, all while an 'exclusive technology helps intensify melanin production, even without sun exposure, to prolong the tan.'
It's great for dry bits, peely bits, red bits, sore bits, freckly bits and all bits really. I really truly feel like it does make you go slightly darker than you otherwise would and ensures your tan lasts just a bit longer!
The trick with this is to buy it at DUTY FREE! It is *always* stocked in the big Duty Free shops at airports and more often than not in the *In Flight Magazines on the aeroplane (*if you fly on the cheep and cheerful budget airlines like me anyway). A little goes a long way with this so be careful - I'll often start to mix it with a cheaper after-sun for my legs etc if it starts running low and save it for my face/chest/arms/tummy.
You can pick this up from Selfridges for £22 but be sure to have a little nosy for it next time your jetting off to sunnier climes - or flying back to gloomy blighty!
