Antheia Express Fake Tan Remover: A Quick Fix!

If you've read my blog before you will know, I use a lot of fake tan! I trial lots of brands and formulas, but a much rarer find is a product that removes tan with ease. I've never really known of any products that remove fake tan, so when the opportunity to try Antheia came up, I knew I had to take it. Typically I remove my fake tan with a long soak in the bath and a rough scrub with an exfoliating mitt or face-cloth. This isn't always ideal as it can be harsh on my skin and requires loads of moisturising afterwards. This also means I can't tan again immediately, usually I need to wait a day or two.

Grown Alchemist Body Cream: A Treat for Winter

When winter hits, my skin turns into a dry, flaky mess. It's the season where I can't really afford to get lazy and stop moisturising, particularly after hot showers. Usually I rotate my body moisturisers, just trying whatever bottle takes my fancy. I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful product from Activeskin just a few weeks ago: the Grown Alchemist Body Cream in the Mandarin and Rosemary Leaf scent.

Two weeks with Optiva

As you will know if you read my blog often, I adore skincare! It's so important what we use on our skin because it can really make a difference to how we look and feel about ourselves, as well as affecting the base for makeup. As the seasons change my skin has a mind of its own and I usually have to turn to more hydrating products to keep my skin balanced and in check. I've been trialling the Boots Laboratories Optiva range for just over two weeks in an effort to create a hydration barrier and keep my skin looking fresh and glowy. Check out how the trial went!

The holy grail of all mascaras...

It's not often that I fall in super love with a product, but once I discovered the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for the first time, there was no going back! Originally I purchased the product to try, didn't love it and left it sitting in my makeup bag for a little while. A couple of months later, I pulled it out again to discover that the product had settled and dried down, and the things it did to my lashes were amazing!
