Total glow body lotion

Love using this body lotion , unlike other self tanning creams I've used in the past this one builds up evenly and gradually making my tan look natural , no nasty steaks or patches . Within 2 days my tan looked beautiful but at the same time my skin feels nourished and soft . There's no strong fake tan smell and no give away signs I'm using a tanning product ! Just what you need to use with our English lack of sunshine , highly recommended !!

Kept my summer tan topped up!!

Started using this product after I returned from my 2 summer holidays abroad to keep up my tan. Pleasantly surprised with the smell considering it is a fake tan product. Built up an even, natural looking colour without streaks. Would definitely re-purchase.

This is the best gradual tanning product I have used

This is an absolutely beautiful product. It smells wonderful and is very easy to apply and the colour is perfect. This is the best gradual tanning product I have used. I would highly recommend it.

Gorgeous product! I'll use all year round!

I have tried lots of gradual tan moisturisers in the past and what makes this one different is how easily absorbed it is. The texture is silky and it isn't an effort to smooth it into the skin. Equally the smell isn't off putting like many are! It works perfectly with the face version as well and most importantly it gives a really natural colour. I really like this product.

Great colour!

I'm super pale, so an opportunity for a bit of colour on my bare legs is always welcomed! I've not really used gradual tan or fake tan products before, so I was a bit worried I'd get streaks. I exfoliated well beforehand and made sure not to rub in the lotion with my fingers, it went on easily. The smell isn't biscuity to begin with, but this develops slightly the next day (but nothing strong at all). I had a lovely colour on day 2, but with a few streaks from bad application... a bit of practice should sort this, but until then, I have the lemon and bicarb handy! Definitely a product I'll keep at home for whenever the sun comes out :)

Wonderful for pale skin

I have been using the elemis total glow for around a year now. I am very pale with dark hair (think Irish skin) and struggle to tan naturally without worrying about skin damage. I have tried ALOT of fake tans over the years some of which I love, however I never feel comfortable using them on holiday. For the first time last year I took total glow away with me after falling in love with the product and it looked so natural next to those with a 'real' tan. If you are wanting a dark tan or have olive skin this may not be the product for you because I find it gives me the sort of glow one might catch naturally from spending time outdoors rather than the colour of someone who has baked on a lounger for two weeks solid. Total glow also fades evenly so you don't risk having awful patches over you. The initial scent is floral and the cream is white, just like a normal body lotion. I apply it with my hands then wash them after. After a few hours you do get that buiscuity fake tan smell but by then you can take a shower and the smell will be gone, then you repeat the process the next day. The only downside for me is that it is quite pricey and as it's a lotion you do use it up quite quickly. Total glow is now my holy grail gradual tanner and the only one that makes me look naturally sunkissed! I will be using this product for many more years. Thank you Elemis

Despite having asian skin this product did leave me with a subtle glow. I have not used tanning products before so cannot compare the smell however this did leave a slight biscuity smell.

It's very moisturising and leaves the skin feeling soft and supple. I am taking it on honeymoon with me!

Not good

I use elemis products all the time and rave about them - but this product gets the thumbs down from me. Might be okay if you have clear mole and freckle free skin but I have some large freckles and this product made them stand out like beacons. It darkened the rest of the skin a couple of shades but the freckles much more so my legs looked awful. A lot of money down the drain for me.

Glow no show

very disapointed in this elemis product, after 3 days of applying only a very subtle change of colour, and I have pale skin. for the price this is not acceptable, it simply feels like a moisturiser

ELEMIS Replied to your Review on 6/30/2016
Hi Johanna, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your thoughts on the Total Glow Bronzing Body Lotion.

We are very sorry to hear that you feel disappointed with the results of this moisturiser. As everyone's skin is so unique the amount of time to gain the tan may slightly differ from person to person. The Total Glow Bronzing Moisturiser works with your natural melanin within the skin to provide a natural glow, rather than an instant, dark tan. If you are hoping to achieve a darker tan I would recommend to continue the use of this product as it is designed to build a natural tan over a number of applications, this can be used both morning and evening. For the best results we would advise to regularly exfoliate the skin prior to applying the product to ensure an even tan.
