Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs I try not to go too heavy on the tanning products as I am really pale and it always looks really fake when I put a lot of tan on. However I do like to put a light tan on when I am going somewhere special, because I don't really use tan that much, I don't like having to fuss over it when I am applying. The easier the better, I have found that this tan is really easy to get a nice glow on my legs and am really happy with it! Application This tan comes out as a spray, to get a nice even tan, I spray it onto my legs and make sure that I don't miss any spots. It is really important to keep the spray moving to ensure a nice even tan. You can see this tan as it goes on, so it is really easy to cover every last bit, also I only skim my knees so I don't get build up on them. What I Thought I really liked this tan, it has a really healthy looking glow to it, is a tiny bit shimmery and also looks quite natural, which is good for me because of my pale skin tone. My legs always look lovely when I use this. This tan doesn't really last that long, its kind of apply on, wash off, usually after my first or second shower it is completely gone, I actually like this as it means that I am back to my own colour after my night out. I don't mind the smell that comes from this spray, it isn't really over powering or sickening like some other fake tans I have used in the past which is a big plus for this spray. I would definitely recommend this tan and will be buying it in the future, the spraying ...

Boots Soltan Aftersun Hydrating Lotion 05/08/2013

Boots Soltan Aftersun Hydrating Lotion

Boots Soltan Aftersun Hydrating Lotion The one thing that you never think about when you go out in Northern Ireland is sun burn, however apparently I sun burn quite easily. A few days ago, I decided to catch a few rays between thunderstorms, not thinking about sun cream, and ended up quite burnt on my arms and head. Unfortunately there wasn't much I could do for my head, but my arms were killing me when it came to bedtime and I decided to go to the cupboards and find my after sun from last years holidays. Application To apply this after sun, you simply smear it over the affected areas. It isn't that sticky or messy when applying and it sinks in and is absorbed quite quickly. What I Thought This is really easy to apply, it has quite a nice texture to it and feels amazing when it has been applied onto burnt, itchy skin. I really felt loads of relief when I applied this at night time and in the morning, my skin did seem to feel a little better. I found that this after sun is a really good moisturiser, my skin didn't peel when I used this, and I had taken quite a burning. Also my skin wasn't as angry and inflamed the day after using this and it was much easier to fall asleep at night after a bit this was applied. This after sun apparently protects you from bugs, which I think that is be really handy, especially when you are away, last year I brought mine to Florida and didn't have any problems with bugs. This after sun didn't have a really offensive scent to it, which is probably one of the best things about it. I ...

St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse 05/08/2013

St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse

St Moriz Instant Self Tanning Mousse I think that fake tan has just became part of the ritual of getting ready for going out at the weekend. I have tried and tested quite a few different fake tans looking for that sunkissed, natural colour that is easy to apply and cheap to buy. The best one I have tried for value and end results so far is the St Moriz mouse fake tan. Colours Available There are light, medium and dark colours available in this tan, I always use the light version because I don't like being too dark and my skin is so pale, even the medium shade looks really fake and unnatural on me. The light shade, for my skin tone though looks really nice. Application This fake tan comes out as a mousse, it is coloured, so you can see what you are applying and that makes it WAY easier to apply it easily. Once I have mine all applied and have got someone to check my back for streaks, I then allow it to develop for around 8 hours, and then shower it off. It usually ends up that I apply it on a Friday night, go to sleep and wash it off Saturday morning and then I am ready, hassle free for the weekend. What I Thought I really liked this tan, it looks really natural on my skin, it gives it a lovely glow and the coverage is really nice. I find that once I have let the tan develop (about 8 hours) and then shower it off, it then doesn't streak easily and also doesn't have that awful fake tan scent to it when it has been showered over. This tan usually lasts me about 2-3 showers, so I need to apply it twice a week for ...

Tresemme 5544U/BU 29/07/2013

TRESemme 5544U Lightweight Hair Dryer

Tresemme 5544U/BU I am constantly washing my hair, and in Northern Ireland, it is not warm enough to allow it to dry naturally (it would take ages and I have no patience), so it is important to keep a hair dryer handy. I have been using this TRESemme hair dryer for just over a year and I love it. The Hair Dryer I really like this hair dryer, it is lightweight and very comfortable to hold and manage. I have quite a lot of hair at the moment, as I have been growing it, but I have found that this hair dryer has enough power in it to blast my hair dry quite quickly. I use heat damage protection spray (the Toni and Guy one at the moment) and haven't had any problems with heat damage on my hair. You can adjust the speed and temperature that comes from this hair dryer, there are 3 speeds and a cold button, for when you are looking cooler air to flow. This hair dryer came with two different attachments, a small narrow one for blow drying and a diffuser that helps great waves and volume. Mine also came with 2 TRESemme styling clips to help me part and section my hair when I am blow drying it. I think that this is a very good quality hair dryer, it looks the part and is quite sleek looking and black in colour which looks quite stylish in my bedroom. It is mid-sized, easily stored and reminds me of the hair dryers that are used in the salon (probably due to being part of the TRESemme brand. Price and Availability I bought this hair dryer last year for around £25. So far I have had no problems with it ...

Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Nose Pore Strips 28/07/2013

Boots Witch Hazel and Tee Tree Nose Pore Strips

Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Nose Pore Strips Almost everybody gets blackheads on their nose, a few months ago I was in Boots and came across their Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range for fighting break outs and keeping skin clean and clear. I decided to pick up these nose pore strips because they were much cheaper than any other strips that I have seen in the shops and I figured they would be worth a go. Application These strips take a little bit of time to apply and use, so I recommend that when you are using them, you take a little time to yourself so then you have the time to complete the process properly and don't rush it. To apply these you firstly have to wash your hands and your nose. Then you need to dry your hands and take the clear backing off the strip and apply the smooth side to your nose nice and evenly. Then you need to smooth it over and press it down to make sure it sticks down properly, wait about 15 minutes (though I found 20 minutes gives better results) and then when the strip is good and stiff, peel it off and rinse your nose with warm water. What I Thought I think that these strips were a really good buy, they worked just as well as other nose strips I have used in the past, which were much more expensive. I found that the first one I used lifted quite a lot of dirt from my nose and was actually quite disgusted that so much dirt was able to be extracted from my nose. I would say my nose look much cleaner and fresher after using these strips. I use mine about once a month and found that it has kept ...
