Summer skin


The summery season is well and truly here and I am super excited for ice cream and eating al fresco. As we know, I also like a little summery glow and so I introduced this guy into my nightly routine. I started using the Clarins Liquid Bronze Self Tanning lotion a few weeks back and have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I was fairly sceptical about using a face tanner with no colour guide, for obvious reasons, but this stuff is really good. It smells nice and orangey too. I'm crap at describing scents by the way. So it's basically a milk lotion that you pop on a cotton pad and then slather onto the face before bed and that's where I started praying it wouldn't be a disaster the following morning. When I checked the mirror and didn't see an oompa loompa staring back I was chuffed. Instead I had a very light tan and really soft skin which I was not expecting at all. I actually looked like I'd had a great sleep and was very fresh looking if I say so myself. The tan is on the light side, but I think that's a bonus, and after applying it a few times a week, you get a lovely sun kissed look. Perfect.
