Senssē Hot and Cool Facial Bar
I’ve never realised how important it actually is to keep good care of your skin until a few years back. My skin has been through some break outs with spots and grease, I mean it really doesn’t help I have very oily skin as it is. But it honestly is so important about keeping your skin clean and refreshed all the time.
After reviewing Senssē Beauty Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush, (see the full review here) they sent me their Hot and Cool Facial Bar as well, which was extremely generous and I’m so thankful. I am more thankful of how good this product has been for my skin. I didn’t really know what to expect as it’s a ‘hot and cool facial bar’ but it definitely sounds intriguing, doesn’t it?
Like the Cleansing Brush it came in the most gorgeous white box with gold writing, white and gold? in love.
Opening the box was even better, the device was white and bronze! In the box you get; a mini booklet all about the safety instructions, USB cable and charging base. The charging base is so pretty, as weird as that sounds. It’s a little bronze stand, all you do is balance the bar on top and it automatically chargers when plugged in.
What does it do?
This device is slightly different but definitely works. When rubbing the product on my skin it’s goes hot and cold, which feels so amazing. This product helps with long lasting, radiant skin and relieves the skin from fatigue to energize. Alongside this, it helps bring out the youthful side of your beautiful glowing skin.
The different modes create different affects. The hot mode increases blood circulation and relax muscles. The cool mode helps better skin care absorption and reduces pores from appearing. There is also a mode called Hot with Vibration and this mode helps skin care absorption.
My Routine When Using The Brush
Your are meant to use this product 2-3 times a week as everyday can become too much for your skin. After washing my face with warm water, I apply my Nivea moisturizer all over my face. With the product I hold the button for 3 seconds once (activating hot mode) and go over all my skin massaging it. Press the button again, which will activate Hot Mode with Vibrations and repeat covering my face. Finally, I press the button once more to activate cool mode, and cover my skin. The cool mode especially does your skin a world of wonders. Hold the button again for 3 seconds, which will turn the device off.
My Full Review
My results were amazing, I have only used this device twice but every time I do the routine, my skin feels incredible after. All my spots have cleared up and I always feel full of energy afterwards. I would recommend this product to everyone – my skin has never been in such a good state.
I hope you go purchase this product yourself because I am truly in love, completely helps clearing up the blemishes on your skin.

Getting Perfect Brows with Epibrow
I’ve literally been trying to grow out my eyebrows for ages, purely because I want to re shape them better to suit my face. I never found any product good enough that grows out my brow hair faster and thicker. For a long time my eyebrow used to be dark brown and slowly fade into light hair so it literally looked like I had half a brow, it was a disaster.
I came in contact with a brand called Epibrow who are an international academy that supply Brow and Lash products to help keep them as healthy as ever. So when they offered to send me one of their Brow Serums, I thought why not, its worth the try! Honestly, the results were incredible. Pretty much after one day my brows started going slightly darker and the brow hair have grown so fast.
I am writing this review from using this product for two weeks, even after two weeks the little bottle is pretty much still full. So, I will be using it’s for a long time. After two weeks my brows have grown so thick and fast, I’m so happy it’s helped me grow out my eyebrows even more!
***WARNING: please be aware my eyebrows are in their natural and un plucked state. As I’m in the middle of growing them out – they are very messy.***
Before i started using this product my eyebrows were very fair hair which meant the ends of my eyebrows you can hardly see. I forever wish I was one of those people that could literally live in the natural brows without even touching them up, unfortunately that’s not me. This is purely why I am growing them out!
Okay, you can clearly see the difference and I’m only two weeks in. The hairs are so much more darker, they have grown SO fast! Since I’ve been using this product I have found it even easier to draw them in as they are good back to their natural shape. I am so happy with the results!
How I got my results
As I have managed to get really good results, my daily EpibrOw routine is daily. When I wake up in the morning I make sure my skin is completely clean and fresh and I use the little brush in the bottle to brush the hairs with the oil. I massage the product into my eyebrows, purely because it helps boost the blood circulation, after I top it up I applied another layer of the product on top and let it naturally dry.
Epibrow products are so well worth it! I would recommend them to anyone. Especially this product Brow Design Serum, its £55 which is definitely worth splashing the cash on!
Another product Epibrow do which is highly recommend is their Eyelash Serum which works overnight and for best results over 4 weeks. I’m so eager to try this one, it sounds amazing!

Sensse Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush
I’ve always been so obsessed with keeping my skin clean and refreshed. Luckily, I have never had a problem with my skin apart from the occasional spots but yet I still lust for perfect smooth skin, well doesn’t everybody?
Apart from drinking heaps of water and my daily/nightly facial routine I’ve been longing for a facial cleansing brush that really does the job perfectly. I’ve wanted to find one for so long purely as an extra help to make sure all my makeup/dirt is completely drawn from my face. There’s no better feeling when my skin feels so healthy and looks glowing!
I came across a brand called Senssē beauty which they kindly gifted me one of their products. This being their Silicone Facial Cleansing Brush which I was soooo was excited to receive and review for all of you.
I must say when it arrived it came the most stunning packaging, a white box with gold writing on. I was even more amazed when I opened the box, the actual brush is so pretty! The brush is pink and bronze, which I love of course. As well as the Facial Cleansing Brush in the box includes a little booklet full of instructions and safety warnings, a USB cable and the most amazing pink glittered Luxe Cosmetic Bag. This brush is a great deep cleanser and also has an anti-ageing service button on the machine too.
The routine to use this brush is so simple and easy after the second use I didn’t need to read the manual again, as it was very straight forward. Before using the device make sure the brush is fully charged, the device shows it’s fully charged when the flashing stops.
My routine when using the brush
Firstly, I used a makeup wipe to make sure all my makeup is pretty much removed. Alongside this, I use the Simple facial toner to make sure the rest of the dirt and makeup has been removed!
I apply warm water to my face and apply small amounts of No7 Cleansing lotion to the place I want to deep cleanse my skin. For me this tends to be on my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. Majority of the places you use this Facial brush is along your contouring lines.
Turn on the device by pressing the middle button once. The buttons on the left and on the right are to adjust the intensity, there are six different intensity levels. I normally set my intensity on level 3-4 and in circular motions all over the contoured parts of my face i deeply cleanse my face. For each part of my face I cleanse for about 15-20 seconds, I don’t tend to use the anti ageing button much.
You can use the back of the facial brush to massage your skin after use, I do this every time. To finish simply rinse and dry with a towel. I do this routine daily!
The best part of using this facial brush is it automatically switches off after 3 minutes of no activity, which is good because it is not recommended to do this more than 3 minutes each time.
My full review
Personally, this product has done my skin the world of good. From using this product every night I have found my skin looks so glowing and fresh, it feels so clean all the time too! When I first started to use this product I had a few spots on my forehead, honestly they have cleared up so much faster then they usually do. My skin currently looks so clean and I don’t even have one spot. I am so happy with the outcome of this product! I would recommend it to anyone and I will definitely be carrying on using this daily.
Even better, this silicone facial cleansing brush is currently on offer on Amazon. The normal price would be £90.00 and right now you can get it for £39.99!!!!
You’ll never know how truly amazing this device is until you actually use it yourself, but my favourite points that make this cleansing brush so good are;
- There is six different intensity levels
- It contains a built in timer
- You can use it 180 times between each full charge which is AMAZING!
- Automatically shuts off after 3 minutes
- its WATERPROOF – with it being waterproof it means I can use it in the shower, which is the best and so much easier. Using it in the shower is also good, purely because it will basically clean the brush at the same time!
I hope I have you convinced as I am totally in love with it! I have a follow up blog post coming next Wednesday all about another Sensse product – so keep a look out!!

Skin Therapy with Skin Yoga
If you know me well, you’d know I’m crazy over skin care and treatments. I’m never not wearing a face mask, I mean who doesn’t love a detox at the end of a stressful day? I do.
The presence of skin therapy makes me so excited. And then I came across Skin Yoga. Skin Yoga is a 100% natural, vegan skin care from Indian. I got delivered the Coffee Body Scrub and I wasn’t really sure what to expect. It came in the nicest black and gold packaging with the cutest personal note and a product guide. The best thing about Skin Yoga products, especially this one is that it’s 100% natural.
The main thing I was completely stunned by was the smell of this body scrub. I know it’s coffee body scrub… but OH MY, the smell literally reminds of coffee in the morning. I was in Skin Yoga heaven! The ingredients for this particular Coffee Body Scrub is made from; Coffee Ground, Cold Pressed Coconut Oil and Seasame Oil.
How do I use it?
As I’m pretty much tanned 24 / 7 I only exfoliate when I need to redo my tan or take the patchy tan off. My favorite way to use this product, is by having a bath soak making sure everything is clean and refreshed. Whilst my skin is still wet I take small handfuls of the coffee scrub which I then scrub on my skin for 5-7 minutes. Rinse. It’s such an easy routine which can be achieved so quickly.
Does it work?
What can I say.. It’s one of the best exfoliation products I have ever used. My skin feels completely fresh and cleansed ready for reapplication of tan. I have never been so pleased with a product… it’s smells completely gorgeous whilst leaving my skin so silky soft.
The reason it makes my skin feel so good is because even when it’s moisturising and nourishing your skin. It enhances fat and metabolism and removes liquid and fat from your skin, reduces cellulite and stretch marks. There are so many more amazing qualities left to describe of this body scrub which I will let you all find out when you use it.
The coffee body scrub is £32 and can be purchased from Naturally Better You. I know it’s can seem pricey but honestly, it’s so worth it. The absolute best skin care product which completely soothes my skin.
(Even though this product has been sent to me to review, be sure this is entirely my own honest opinion. This is not an advertisement.)

To view my whole review on all the products click here.
Following on from this, last week Lee Stafford sent me one of their new products called Lived In Look Spray which I’m going to review in this post.
LiVED iN SPRaY
This product is great for any look, whether its being sprayed on messy natural hair to create that messy up-do look or whether its being sprayed on styled hair just wanting that extra shine and definition its perfect for an everyday look.
Lived in spray is very lightweight yet holds a very undone texture with a subtle grip that still leaves the hair feeling very clean and soft. As I mentioned I have only used this for a week so far however i cant stop using it everyday before I leave the house its essential to spray this product on my hair as it adds layers and creates that LIVED IN LOOK.
This Lee Stafford products adds texture, definition and shine, could you want any more in just one simple product? So obsessed with this product and its definitely now my favourite Lee Stafford product. I would recommend this product to anyone and its only £5.99 from Boots!!

Lee Stafford Products Review
Nothing I love more than trying out different products, whether its makeup/skin care or even hair products. I love keeping my hair in a good condition – I always find when my hair doesn’t feel healthy it really brings me down. I shampoo and condition my hair every morning which I know is really bad, but I can’t start the day without clean and washed hair.
My favourite hair products to use are my Lee Stafford collection which I have quite a few of – don’t get me wrong I use some more than others because each product has its own quality and value. You can buy the products to the way you want your hair styled which is great, from Straight to Curls these products suit any hair style.
POKER STRAIGHT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
I normally always have my hair straight as that is what I personally suit more, on a rare occasion I will curl my hair or have it wavy. So these products are amazing for me I barely have to straight my hair as my the products did it all. I never have to worry about my hair looking frizzy or fluffy. These products are from the ‘Poker Straight’ collection – this includes; Shampoo, Conditioner, Heat Protection Sprays, Protection Mist and Shine Serum. From all these I have only tired the shampoo and conditioner but cant wait to try the others.
Using the Lee Stafford Poker Straight Shampoo already gives you a head start on getting beautiful, straight hair. I adore this product, it always leaves my hair feeling silky and smooth which is topped up with a your hair looking shiny and healthy. It completely cleanses your hair and has an amazing fragrance to go with it.
After application, I always follow with the Lee Stafford Poker Straight Conditioner again this product completely tops the silky and smooth finish. This conditioner has a special ingredient which keeps your hair safe and healthy when using heating tools. This reduces frizz and static energy in your hair – this has a beautiful fragrance too. Both these products are fairly affordable too being £5.99 for each the shampoo and conditioner.
UBUNTU OILS LIGHT OIL REPAIRING MIST
Whenever I feel my hair is getting into a bad condition I always turn to this product – it really helps me repair my hair to a cleansed and healthy state. The spray is really light-weight and it never leaves a greasy effect.
When using this Lee Stafford Ubuntu Oils Light Oil Repairing Mist you can certainly always tell a difference when applying this my hair never fails to feel restored, fresh, pampered and repaired. It’s so easy to use and again has a wonderful fragrance.
ORIGINAL DRY SHAMPOO
This is one of my favourite Lee Stafford products when I use it. As I wash my hair every morning I hardly use dry shampoo but when I do I couldn’t use a different product compared to this one. It completely revives my hair by being so absorbent. I can always face the day after using this.
This Lee Stafford Original Dry Shampoo product completely fights my roots and makes my hair feel so refreshed and clean with a fantastic fragrance. You can purchase travel sizes of this dry shampoo which is amazing for your travel bag essential.
By far this is my favourite Lee Stafford product everyday I use this no matter what – if you’re anything like me my hair gets so frizzy and static so easy. When straightening my hair it goes flicky and wavy within ten minutes of stepping outside. But not anymore, after using this product my hair stays straight and smooth all day. I always spray it before I leave in the morning and before bed.
Lee Stafford Poker Straight Dehumidifier keeps my hair straight all day and develops frizz protection with a gorgeous fragrance. This is £6.49 from boots. Very affordable and well worth the money.
MIRACLE HEAT DEFENCE SPRAY
If you are someone like me, I use heating tools everyday which literally destroys my hair after a while. So this product truly is a miracle product, you have to spray on towel dried hair and after hair is dry for best results. Don’t get me wrong my hair still gets in a bad condition but this product seriously decreases the time it gets in a bad condition.
This product Lee Stafford Miracle Heat Defence Spray is induced with Moroccan oil which makes my hair feel completely healthy after use, ending in a silky and smooth finish. The spray is very light weight and has a beautiful fragrance.
HOLD TIGHT HAIRSPRAY
I am sucker when it comes hairspray can never get enough of it – I probably spray too much when I use it. There are so many different hairsprays which you can pretty much buy from anywhere. This hairspray is good but I have used hairsprays which are as good but cheaper. For example when I don’t have this hair spray, I always use VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray which is water-resistant too and £3.00.
The Lee Stafford Hold Tight Hairspray is £6.00 and can be purchased in Boots. It holds your hair in place all day, completely long-lasting. There is no stiffness and has a great fragrance – I would definitely recommend this product.
BIG FAT ROOT BOOST MOUSSE SPRAY
If you love having your hair full of volume this product is definitely for you! Your hair will contain a lot of padding and really holds your hair in place. Using this product with the Lee Stafford Hold Tight Hairspray is the best combination ever – definitely recommend.
This Lee Stafford Big Fat Root Boost Mousse Spray is incredible to get thick volume hair, it has an extremely ultra strong hold and has a very low stickiness.
HERE COME THE CURLS CONTROL CREME
I don’t tend to have my hair curly at all, so this product is the one product I hardly use. When I have used it really creates thick, unruly curls. This Lee Stafford Crème Curl product really defines and controls great curls without frizzing.
HAIR GROWTH TREATMENT
So many people have asked me about Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment and let me tell you now its the best product I have ever used for hair growth. I don’t use it much now because I have changed my hair style to be short instead of long. When I did use this my hair completely started growing longer and longer so fast. It improves your hair condition and creates a healthy scalp with a great fragrance. My hair last year went all the way down to the end of my back, so if you want long hair and a healthy scalp, get this product!! It’s insanely good.
Lee Stafford hair products are very good and I recommend them all! Whether you want straight hair, curly hair, wavy hair or even hair growth anything you need Lee Stafford products will suit your needs.
Makeup Bag Essentials
Whenever I leave the house I always take a makeup bag or makeup products with me, these products always make me feel refreshed or just to top up my makeup. Most of them are all travelled size so they fit perfectly in my makeup bag. All products are listed below.
MAC 48 Lash eyelashes with Duo glue. These eyelashes are my favourite, they are fiercely wispy & have a dramatic length. I always carry a spare pair of eyelashes around with me when I wear them. These eyelashes give the best finishing touch to my makeup.
Alongside this I attach these to my eye using Duo glue which is amazing, always keeps my eyelashes on for all period of time, the very small tubes are perfect to carry around and use to top up if needed.
ALWAYS carry around top up lipstick / lip-gloss when wearing it. I don’t really tend to wear it much but when I do I only use certain ones. However when I don’t wear it, which is pretty much all the time – I always wear clear lip gloss! In fact, I wear NYX Clear Mega Shine Gloss , this product is incredible the lip gloss stays on for ages and the shine is unreal. The size makes it very easy to carry around in my makeup bag.
One of my favourite liquid lipsticks I love to wear is my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the colour Patina. This definitely does stay on all day and its amazing. When you apply the lipstick it instantly turns to a matted state – which looks so good. This lipstick even stay on through eating and drinking throughout the day. It takes a while to remove it – nevertheless, the result is worth it.
Sometimes I tend to wear my Too Faced lipstick which is called ‘La Crème’. This is basically melted lipstick which is very good, I love it.
Mascara is a HUGE element of my make up essential. I always use the No7 Velvet Lash as this is one of the best mascaras I have yet to try. The brush makes my lashes look amazing. Really easy to fit in my makeup bag as well.
No7 Eye Makeup Remover I always carry round a travel size version and cotton wool pads just in case I want to take my make up off. I love this product is very oily but wipes my makeup of very easy. It is definitely refreshing. Easy to carry around with me too.
I tend to take a small eyeshadow palette with me depending on what I’m wearing. In my makeup bag at the moment is my L’Oréal Palette in the colour Riche Quad. I love this eyeshadow palette its so natural and so easy to use.
CONCEALER, CONCEALER, CONCEALER. This is defiantly a must, I always take concealer round with me just in case my makeup rubs of at all. I use the Maybelline Cover Stick Thick Concealer, for the best coverage. I would definitely recommend this.
This is everything I love to carry in my makeup bag, however I always carry around a few makeup brushes and always hair bobbles and grips. That’s part of a girls must haves.
What’s in your makeup bag? Let me know by leaving a comment below!
People that know me well know I love having white teeth / experimenting different teeth whitening techniques. I have tired so many different methods good and bad. The last product I tried was BlanX White Shock Intensive Whitening Treatment which I used along side BlanX White Shock Instant White Toothpaste. At the start of this treatment it really worked, however as it comes into touch with water it became really rusty & its quite time consuming if you are using this twice a day. After a lot of researching different methods I realised one of the best techniques is a mixture of Colgate products – which is such a common brand, you just need to be looking for the right products. Colgate is reasonably affordable which is great; considering some teeth whitening products can be very expensive.
Step-By-Step Guide To Teeth Whitening
I brush my teeth using Colgate Max Expert White 360 Toothbrush & Whitening Pen for at least 3 minutes using Colgate Max White Optic Toothpaste or Colgate Max White Expert Cool Mint Toothpaste. After I use Colgate Max White Mouthwash and finish with a whitening tool used on the end of my Colgate Max Expert White 360 Toothbrush.
Colgate Max Expert White 360 Toothbrush
This toothbrush I recently purchased its a standard toothbrush end with a rubber whitening pen tool. Its especially designed for removing stains and whitening teeth. It is completely safe which contains no harmful substances. It leaves your teeth feeling very fresh and clean. This product is amazing, I haven’t been using it for long but I can definitely tell a difference already!! This toothbrush is a reasonable price at just £12.00.
Colgate Max White Optic Toothpaste
This toothpaste is amazing as its completely instant but developing as well. Its dark blue when using, literally turns you mouth blue. Its worth it because it works extremely well. You can purchase this for only £4.00!!
Colgate Max White Mouthwash
This is one of my favourite whitening products ever!! Again, this is very instant after using you feel very refreshed and clean. I have gone through 5 bottles of this and cant go out without using this mouthwash. It completely keeps away any food or drink stains and seriously brightens / whitens your teeth. I always buy this from boots for £4.20.
I would 100% recommend using these products to whiten your teeth. They will always work for me, its a very quick process and makes you feel very refreshed and clean. Ready to face your day with a smile.

I have always struggled trying to find a good foundation that actually lasts all day – even with primer and setting spray on my foundation always rubs off after a few hours. I’ve tried so many different makes from Mac to Max Factor to Rimmel London and many more. I wanted a foundation that is matte and stays on for a significant amount of time after a few years of searching for different foundations, I have finally come across this amazing trio which always keeps my makeup on clearly until I take it off.
The first piece of this amazing trio is my L’Oréal Paris Infallible Primer Matte Base. As well as foundations I have been searching into different primers I used to use Nivea After Shaving Cooling Gel, however I tend to use No7 primer or this one. This L’Oréal primer is amazing the substance is gel which is very oily but it blends into the skin very well. This primer as well encourages your final look to be very matte and the primer helps your foundation blend evenly into your skin. This product is very affordable as well at £7.99 and sold in a tube container. Click here to find out more information about the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Primer Matte Base.
The second product is my L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation – which like I mentioned is one of the best foundations for my makeup to stay on. I brought this foundation just to try something different – which I brought in a darker colour for when I am tanned. I will be buying a lighter shade soon so I can wear this all the time. The matte texture is pure but very effective and the foundation is very easy to blend in. It lasts up to 24 hours which is true and it is waterproof which is even better. Amazing coverage. Again, it’s very affordable for £7.99. Click here to find out more information about the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation.
The last product is my L’Oréal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist 100ml – this product is really good and certainly does the job. It’s a liquid substance with powder – this means you really have to shake it before using as the first couple time you use it you will get white dots on your face. After this has passed the fixing mist itself is amazing. It sets the makeup really well and definitely adds on the time the base of the makeup lasts for. This product is very affordable as well at just £7.99. Click here to find out more information about the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist.
All these products together truly create the perfect long-lasting face makeup. Now my makeup will stay on for hours without even fading.
L’Oréal makeup is in promotion at the moment 3 for 2 which is amazing. This means you could purchase these three products for under £16 which is definitely very affordable. Would definitely recommend these products.

Favourite Tanning Products
Everyone loves being tanned, right? I absolutely love walking around while looking tanned, it makes me feel more better about myself with a good tan. So I thought I’d tell you guys about my favourite tanning products I use.
I have tried so many different products for self tan, I sometimes have spray tans but not very often. If I do have spray tan I will always use the tanning shop in Stafford town.
St. Moriz Tanning Moose
One of the tanning products I use is called St. Moriz, you may or may not of heard of it, but you can buy this product from all most anywhere, you can even get it from supermarkets. I would usually buy mine from Home Bargains, as its most probably the cheapest. I use to use this product all time, it’s very good and comes out really well but sometimes too heavy, so if you want only a nice bronze glow I would suggest going for a lighter tanned shade. You can always get this product as a spray & a lotion, I do use the moose version as I find it the easiest to apply!
This product I always apply using a tanning Mitt, however this can sometimes come out really streaky and can often feel quite sticky after use. This tanning product is very superior, I mainly use this if I just need a tan for the next day or put it on in the morning so it’s begins to show in the evening. This tan will only last through one shower and it’s developing, if you just get a splash of water on it, it will instantly go very streaky – this sometimes doesn’t look as good.
Click here to purchase St. Moriz
Bondi Sands Dark Tanning Foam
This is my new favourite tanning product, it is the most expensive ones I have used at £14.99 but in my opinion it’s definitely worth it! You can get this in so many different formats, which is great. The smell of the fake tan is so nice as its coconut scented, it doesn’t leave any stains or streaks at all. The results show immediately and also develops over 6 hours and lasts a long time. The tanning product is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E and comes out so even. Anyone wanting a great looking even tan I would definitely recommend this product. I use a tanning mitt to apply this fake tan.

Dove Tinted moisturizer
My all – time favourite tanning lotion is defiantly Dove tinted moisturizer in shade medium – dark. I go through so many bottles of this, it’s incredible. You can buy this product from a local Boots or Superdrug store and again can be found in some supermarkets. Normally this product costs around £7.00 which is slightly more expensive than the St. Moriz, but at the moment in boots it’s only £3.49! I’ve recently been and brought 3 more bottles as the price has gone down slightly. This product is a lotion and I apply it with my hands, which is ok as long as you remember to wash your hands after, they can go very dark. Sometimes I forgot and really regret the next day – though remember not to wash your hands too much as you don’t want a tanned body and then white hands. I love this product as it comes out amazing, I do often tend to put two layers on when applying; it’s so easy to apply and as it’s a moisturizer it softens your skin and makes you feel so much healthier – the tan also doesn’t leave a horrendous smell either. When wearing this tan it always lasts about 4-5 days and that also allows me to shower everyday; obviously when it comes to-day 4-5 I can become a bit streaky and not as tanned, however it defiantly still shows a great tan. I usually apply it about once a week, and it’s defiantly looks good all week.
Ferne Bronzing Moose Express Tan
This is my latest fake tanning product which I brought a few weeks ago. I saw someone promoting it on Instagram – this fake tan is Ferne McCann’s brand. This tan is incredible as it’s an express tan; its instant however its develops over time and lasts for a about a week. I normally apply 2 – 3 layers and don’t need to top it up for ages. You can buy this product from fernemccann.co.uk or Superdrug. You can buy this fake tan in so many different formats either moose or lotion – natural tan / gradual tan / express tan / deep glow. You can get girt sets which is perfect for presents or just the bottle. You can get a tanning mitt along with this.
