Here follows a lovely mini beauty post!
I don’t often blog beauty, but when I find the perfect product I love to share!
Firstly, I’ve had my nails done… I went to Sky Lounge Beauty @ Q Studio in Blackwood South Wales. I must say, what amazing service! Had a gorgeous set of ‘Gelish’ nails applied, even complete wit glitter. I must say I adore them even though I’m not usually a Blue fan.
Secondly, I have found the best in between season false tan! It was a predicament. I wanted a slight tan, but not a summer fake tan that would look OTT. I was wandering around Home Bargains when I hit the fake tan. There I found it, stood tall next to Johnson and Johnson… DOVE: Summer Glow. I must say, it’s the best £2 I’ve spent this season.
The reason I’ve chosen Dove;
- it doesn’t smell like stale biscuits,
- it applies evenly
- it gives a subtle glow
- you can apply everyday for a stronger colour
- it comes in two shades
- it dries quickly
- it doesn’t stain your bedding too much
- it doesn’t stain your clothes
- it doesn’t show up orange
- it utilises your skin tone
Aside from my St Tropez (which I love), Dove is a great alternative. I even got asked if I’d been away for a couple of days by my Lymphoedema Nurse. I think that’s the best compliment for a fake tan! As you can see, the colour starts developing really soon and leaves sin feeling soft, not greasy or sticky. I personally applied during late afternoon ready for the next day as I didn’t want paper white legs for my hospital appointment.
Hope you love the product as much as I do.
Lots of love
