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 »
I am super super pale and having sworn off fake tans for a long-time I decided this winter to perk myself up by making a return to it. 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 »
So many of our finds come from the supermarkets, you’d swear we spend our lives there… Well with no BTs/Boots in our neck of the woods we gotta be resourceful! 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.
I thought I was seeing things when I had an email from Cloud10Beauty this morning announcing the sale of Vita Liberata 2-3 week tan. Surely it couldn’t be?
I am sceptical but intrigued nonetheless! I’m a consistent but reluctant gradual tanner who doesn’t tend to stray but for this product I may just have to! Read on »
So, I have spent the last several winters trying to do the whole “pale chic” look but unfortunately I just don’t have the time to do it to perfection hence my return to the gradual tanner this winter. Time is a luxury for most people these days and to pull of the über pale/white look you need to be dedicated, and I just was not. I didn’t have time to apply Mac face and body to the bits of my arms that might peek out, I wasn’t religious enough in my use of Spf and the constant worry of finding a foundation to match my pale, blotchy skin just all became too much.
