Bali Body Gradual Tan Review

You know I like to keep it bronzed at all times and Bali Body is my go-to brand for an amazing fake tan.

The Bali Body Gradual Tan lotion was just released and I wanted to tell you guys all about it!



I really liked that this lotion isn’t sticky and absorbs right away. It has a gel-like texture and feels really nice on the skin. The cucumber fragrance makes it smell really fresh and the fake tan smell is very minimal. I just noticed a bit of the fake tan smell in the morning (I always apply my tanning products before bed), but after I showered it was totally gone.

It’s filled with nourishing oils like sweet almond oil and grape seed oil that help keep the skin nice and moisturized. It’s SO crucial to keep the skin moisturized when you’re self-tanning because it will extend the life of your tan and ensure that things fade evenly. There is also coffee seed extract (I love coffee in skincare) in the formula, which helps to firm and tighten the skin!

The self tan lotion just gives such a nice natural glow. It’s not quite as intense as their bronzing mousse, but it’s buildable so you can get a deeper color after a few uses. If you’re new to self-tanning, the gradual tan lotion is a great place to start.

Overall, I’m super impressed with the Bali Body gradual tan and would highly recommend it. It’s probably my favorite Bali Body product at the moment, but their whole fake tan range is fantastic. I also love their lip balm, shimmering body oil, and BB cream! If you want a full review on those, check out this post here.
