Summer is on its way and I know this purely because of the amount of fake tan bottles dropping through my letterbox, certainly not because of the temperatures! Most of the tans I have tried this year are ones I have bought and used myself previously but a new one for me this year was Bronz Express. I met with their team recently and rather embarrassingly I had not heard of the range previously! Pretty mortifying for someone who calls herself a beauty blogger to be honest! Read on »
After a brief hiatus from tanning I have returned to the bronze with aplomb; pregnancy is taking its toll on me and the only way to get myself looking semi-normal is to apply a bit of sunshine weekly. I am a dab hand at applying fake tan these days so I love to try products I haven’t used before and when Tan Organics Self Tanning Oil arrived last week I decided to put it through its paces this weekend. Check out how I got on below! Read on »
The last few years has seen an explosion of on-line Irish stores and I for one am glad. Gone are the days of ordering from StrawberryNet and dreading the postman coming with my goodies and a bill for the VAT!

I have been having lots of fun truth be told trying out all different makes and I was delighted when I recently had the chance to try the new 100% Irish Decadence spray tan.
Here is what the folks behind the tan have to say, and ensure to read on for my full review: Read on »
Due to my Casper like complexion I do like to mix things up during the warmer weather (albeit the only “slightly warmer than winter” weather). I’m a little bit hesitant to try new fake tans; I truly am a creature of habit when it comes to tan so It was with trepidation that I obliged the kind folks at Garnier who sent me this one to try!
On the business end of things this tan will set you back €21.19 for 150ml but supermarkets and Boots usually have decent offers from week to week, so you may well find it cheaper elsewhere. The tan promises no streaks with simple, easy application. The big selling point on this one is that it boasts a “No Fake Tan Smell” which is a very huge statement to make.
I exfoliated and prepped my skin the morning before use and I applied the mousse using a mitt applicator I picked up in Penneys. How did I fare? Read on »

I had heard rave reviews of St Moriz for an age now but I didn’t believe the hype; surely a tan costing the guts of a fiver couldn’t be any use? Read on »

Today’s unassuming looking budget buy was an impulse purchase which came good. Isn’t it great when you have zero expectations and are pleasantly surprised? Meet Barbara Daly for Tesco Radiant touch.
