The truth: Lauren said: ‘Having the combo of dark hair and eyes, but naturally pasty skin, I feel far more confident with a golden glow. However, with the faff of applying a fake tan (plus the dreaded eau de biscuit) I often just opt for a sweep of bronzing pearls instead. This product required the minimum effort of applying bronzer with the maximum results of a lasting tan – pretty ideal! My advice from testing the minerals is to not to be too heavy handed – it’s quite the intense shade of bronze! Apply sparingly and blend thoroughly all over your face, neck and collarbone for an even finish. After washing off my make-up at night I did notice that my skin had more of a golden glow, though it was subtle. A great product for summer!’
