Ok, so it’s not like I want to look like I spend my winters in Barbados, but neither do I want to spend the next few months looking somewhere between hungover and just plain ill. My skin goes sickly sallow as soon as the sun edges behind a cloud, and in winter months, develops into a paleness only normally seen on white goods. But, finding a self tanner that gives just a hint of healthy glow is a tricky ask, as I know through the bitter experience of many slightly orange tinted winters. However, I’m finding that Caudalie Teint Divin Self Tanner for the Face gives just the right amount of tint, without obviously overdoing things. I use it every other day, and regularly exfoliate to avoid any ‘patching’. And, like many self-tanners, this one doesn’t leach away any much needed moisture, either.
