The gradual tanner for the perfect faux summer glow

Here’s what our Review Crew® thought about JERGENS® Natural Glow® range

We all know how big the margin for error is when trying to achieve a flawless fake tan. Not only does the tan need to develop to a nice brown shade (rather than the tell-tale Oompa Loompa orange of yesteryear), it needs to apply easily, dry quickly and last for longer than just a few days.

That’s where the JERGENS® Natural Glow® range comes in: the Natural Glow® Color Primer In-Shower Scrub first works to exfoliate rough patches and produce a polished canvas to ensure the JERGENS® Natural Glow® + FIRMING Daily Moisturiser can deliver natural-looking colour with a streak-free glow.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put the entire range to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent JERGENS® Natural Glow® Color Primer In-Shower Scrub and JERGENS® Natural Glow® + FIRMING Daily Moisturiser to women aged between 25 and 54 who never seem to be able to achieve that ever-elusive flawless tan.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about JERGENS® Natural Glow® Color Primer In-Shower Scrub + FIRMING Daily Moisturiser:

How soft the primer made their skin feel: Testers were impressed with how soft and smooth their skin felt after applying the in-shower primer, with many commenting that they planned on using it as their daily exfoliator, regardless of whether or not they were applying fake tan.

How easily the gradual tanner applied: Many reviewers were pleased at how easily and quickly the gradual tan absorbed into the skin, with others adding they were surprised at how soft and hydrated their skin felt afterwards.

How natural the developed colour looked: Reviewers were most impressed with the natural-looking and streak-free finish of the gradual tan. Many were pleased at how well the tan could be built up from a subtle hint of colour to a more intense faux glow.

The verdict

I love a gradual tan and this product ticks all the boxes. It smells amazing, leaves your skin feeling super soft, gives an incredible colour that’s really natural and is great for topping up your colour and giving a gorgeous glow. I definitely will be keeping this product on my list.

I used this moisturising cream in conjunction with the shower primer and found it worked really well. The scent is great and the texture is not greasy at all. I found that my skin absorbed it really well after a few minutes; after three applications you could see a really nice even, natural-looking tan developing. Also my skin was really well moisturised and felt great. Will definitely be buying this product again…love it.

I absolutely loved this body scrub, I loved that it was so much gentler on my skin than most scrubs I had used before. It was the perfect pre-tanning scrub, but can also be used every day. This is definitely going to be my new everyday in-shower exfoliator.

The first great thing about this product is that it smells divine! You don’t need to apply too much product as the scrub particles are relatively small and even the tiniest application will give you a great coverage. It worked really well too as I have super dry skin and after the first use I noticed significant difference. Love it!
