#BEAUTY | A real sunkissed look with a fake tan!

faking my tan until summer, because #britishproblems... we all know what the weather here is like right about now. Normally i stick to my usual tan (review here) and find it hard to venture away from that, cos if it works then why change?

But that has all  changed as i dont see the harm in trying out different products, just in case they look and feel better :)

I got this Norvell Tanning bundle to try out , a brand i had never heard of before this but i noticed on their website that they have a range for Strictly Come Dancing. The tans that the dancers have on there are always so flawless.

I got a PRIME , TAN and ENHANCE product.

So before i started my tan i used the exmitt, to exfoliate and get all the dead skin off. Probably my favourite part cos my skin always feels brand new after. The exmitt is simply a mitt with product on that you just massage across your body or the bits where you want to tan. It smelled really really nice! It wasnt as rough as using an acutal exfoliater cream.

Was my tan more even after using the mitt?
Short answer. Yes.
As the mitt removed the dead skin cells it gave me a perfect smooth layer to work with.

How was the tanning itself?

Well, here is where it gets interesting haha. I have previously used a mousse and cream tan but never an aerosole spray. Sooo it was kinda like getting a spray tan but doing it yourself, a little harder than i imagined. Thats why some parts of my arms are a bit darker than the rest haha! But after i did it a few times i got used to it and actually enjoyed doing it.

It was a hella lot quicker than using a foam based tan and a mitt. It also air dried very quickly and didnt leave me feeling sticky at all!!
It smelled gorgeous too, a very tropical scent.

The tan colour is actually a deep bronze and isnt orange at all it looks the most natural tan ever. Like you have really been on holiday. I honestly wasnt sure about it at first but now im a little bit too excited about it!!

How long does it last?
The first tan i did which probably took less than 10 minutes to apply has lasted on its own for at least 5 days but that is 5 days of looking like it had freshly been applied. I am also sure it gets darker as the days go by so you dont really need to top it up...either that or thats what the enhance cream did?! which im pretty sure it did aha
 so i left it for a few days without appling the cream then i applied the cream thats what made it last longer.
You can use the enhance cream after you have used a tanner to extend the tan or on its own to develop a subtle tan. The bottle says it takes 2-3 hours to develop but the full colour comes out in 8 hours. So remember not to over do it lol!

Overall i would rate it

I think i will get the face tan cream as i know from experience using a body tanner on the face does not go down well!

Leave me comments of your fave tanning brands :D

Im going to add some before and after photos on my socials as the lighting hasnt been great for me to capture the true results.

#BEAUTY | MY favourite ever!

Yesss i am a lash addict...even if im not wearing them i am hoarding them. Here are a few of my faves, most of them will be wispy, invisi band lashes with the odd OTT lashes as i do like my lashes to look as real as possible. Huda Beauty : Scarlett lash - h'omg, these lashes are the ultimate out there lash. They really give me the old hollywood glamour feels and really make your eyes pop. I love these as a high end, luxury lash as they are very pricey!! But 100% worth it. Lash Unlimited : DBL range - i always loved the original range from this brand  the #7 and #9 are so so pretty so when they brought out the DBL range i was really blown away, the lashes are more thicker and have like a double layer and some of the styles remind me of the lilly ghalichi lashes! These lashes are great quality for the low price! Nouveau Lashes : Natural/ Style 3 - Being a member of the #LashGang makes me a little biased here! Well, i say that but im not re

#REVIEW | Ammonia FREE hair dye w/ NATURIGIN

There are a lot of hair dyes on the current market and when i am shopping for one i tend to normally stick to one or two brands, more than anything it is to do with price rather than being about a brand i love. All hair dyes have a variety of colours and there ist much else that sets them apart, so for me i am easily swayed and will give most brands a go! Enter... NATURIGIN . This posts is actually a little overdue, sorry guys! I met the lovely people behind the brand at the blogger hangout event which you can read HERE and they told me the wonders about the hair dye. Basically the biggest selling point or best asset shall i say of this product is the fact that it is ammonia free and organic based! The dye itself is free of ammonia, which means it doesnt have the smell of a chemical lab!! I was so pleased and pleasently suprised with the smell of the dye. I really had no idea what to expect but it wasnt at all that strong bleachy smell it was so much more toned down.
