It’s actually been a fair few months since I dyed my hair light brown/dark blonde but I just never got around to posting about it until now. My hair is a natural dark blonde and I had been dying it a more peroxide shade for a few years now but due to the cost and the constant upkeep I decided enough was enough. I asked my hairdresser to help me go from bleached blonde to light brown with an ombre effect but she didn’t agree that it was a good idea so I threw caution to the wind and took a stab at it myself.

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.

I was delighted when a tube of Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Oil Free suitable for oily/combination skin (bit of a mouthful, eh?!) popped in my letterbox a while back. I was a little less delighted when I realised I was sent the medium shade but no harm done, I simply lashed on a few layers of fake tan and I was ready to put it through its paces.
I did use and like this BB cream but as my skin is quite dry I decided to give it to Henna, my little skin ‘n’blister to give it a real rigorous testing! It was only fair. (On a side-note this cream didn’t dry my already dry skin out, so kudos to Garnier for that). Henna rose to the challenge and was delighted with how this cream performed.
She used it daily and it did not cause breakouts which is SUPER IMPORTANT for most teenage girls. Coverage was excellent; it concealed spots and dark patches whilst not causing drying or flaking. It was easy to apply (she used her fingers despite my repeated attempts at getting her to use brushes) and provided just the right amount of coverage without looking cakey or too noticeable. Read on »
