Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion

beyond bronze

I might be a little bit of a self tan addict. I have tried so many brands, I just love the look of a healthy golden glow. One of my favorite brands has always been Fake Bake they make great self tanners that don’t cost an arm and a leg. Fake Bake has just released their new Beyond Bronze collection and I had the chance to review the self-tan lotion.

The formula comes out looking a bit like chocolate syrup which makes it easy to get good coverage without leaving bare spots or getting streaks. I found the Beyond Bronze Self Tan Lotion was really easy to blend and I had enough time to work it in before it started to dry. The best part is how easy it is. Just shower to remove all body lotions or oils and it always helps to exfoliate. Then grab your gloves and apply. Once I have applied the self-tan lotion I let it air dry for a bit then hop in bed. While I get my ZZZ’s the self tanner goes to work. Then with my morning shower I can rinse off any extra color guide and when I step out my skin has a beautiful and healthy golden glow. (Check out the swatch below to see the great glow with just one use.)

My skin is very pale and I find I get a great tan every time with this product. Always a true tan color and never orange. I can’t believe this is under $10 at Target, I will be stocking up! A great way to have a beautiful tan without the damage of laying out in the sun or a tanning bed. Remember to always use SPF, seld-tanners make your skin look great but do not include sun protection.
Fake Bake Beyond Bronze Self-Tan Lotion $9.99
Beyond bronze self-tan lotion contains only the finest naturally derived, premium tanning agents dha and erythulose for a longer lasting, natural looking tan. The easy glide formula and ‘show where it goes’ cosmetic guide colour enables you to apply your self-tan with ease and confidence. If you desire a darker tan, beyond bronze self-tan lotion can be reapplied over consecutive days, however one application is usually enough.

Use small amounts and rub in a circular motion. Lightly glaze over the hands and feet, bent elbows and knees. Allow to dry before going to bed. A small amount of the colour guide may rinse off when showering in the morning but the tan will remain. Apply consecutive nights for darker results. Then apply once a week to maintain.

Cool Down with Greek Yoghurt!

korres sleeping facial

One of the best products I have tried this year. With combo skin it can be hard to find the balance of moisture without going overboard or skimping either way creating more oil. I had never tried a “sleep facial” and I was interested to see how this would feel. The product is light and fluffy like a mousse it has an amazing fresh yogurt smell and when you put it on your skin it has a cooling effect. It absorbed quickly and my face felt smooth and moisturized and fresh. The next morning I wake up and my skin feels great and the best part no oily feeling or the need to immediately run and wash my face.

The change in my skin in one night was enough to sell me. With continued use my skin is feeling better and my pores are starting to shrink up a bit. After two weeks I have noticed my skin is less oily all day and never oily in the morning. Thank you Korres for a great moisturizer that doesn’t overwhelm my combo skin!

Introducing Simply Straight + Contest!!

simply straight

To tell you the truth I was pretty sure this was another gimmick product. I have tried so many As Seen On TV beauty products and most of them fail to live up to half the claim. The Simply Straight brush had been sitting by my desk for over a week, I wanted to try it but it seemed like it would take too much time and probably just not work.

CYMERA_20160726_152615

So last night I was catching up with a little Big Brother online and thought, heck I’m just sitting here. I will just try the brush while I sit here and see if it even does anything. I grabbed a quick before snap just in case. Then started my episode and plugged in my brush. I was shocked how quick it heated up and love the screen that shows exactly what temp its at. Once the brush was heated I ran it through my hair in sections as I sat watching my show. No mirror, or any other kind of brush just the Simply Straight. When the commercial came on I strolled into the bathroom ready to see half curly, half straight hair. Even with blow drying and a flat iron I have a hard time getting my hair perfectly smooth. So no way a brush was going to even come close to straightening my hair.

(BEFORE)

Well lo and behold I look in the mirror and my hair is straight. Like pin straight, its not hot, doesn’t smell fried and the usual wavy bits were just smooth and straight. The craziest part this took only 5 minutes, without a mirror and without really an effort besides a brushing motion. I was shocked how well it worked, I put it in a ponytail for bed last night and woke up this morning. When I removed the elastic my hair was still straight! That never happens my curl always fight back at night. I have to say I was a skeptical as they come and they changed my mind. The Simply Straight brush straightened my hair without products, or damaging it with excessive heat. I rarely straighten my hair due to the damage it causes and the time to get it straight but will be doing it a lot more often, due to the amazing brush.

Introducing: Reflekt Skincare

20160725_092449

This scrub is summer cleansing perfection! I’ve been using this scrub twice a day for a week now and have loved the results. During summer I am prone to breakouts, and ruddy uneven skin tone. Within the first two days of use I could see my skin clearing the bumps and discoloration were all fading faster than I thought possible. .

You can see from my pictures the cleanser is a gorgeous aqua green color and from the swatch below you can see all the tiny beads that help buff and cleanse my skin. Its a very gentle scrub and does’t irritate my sensitive skin. It lathers well and the beads kind of just disappear  as I wash and the cleanser rinses clean with no residue or dryness. After the first week I’ve seen a great improvement and love how fresh, hydrated and beautiful my skin looks and feels. If you are looking for a new cleanser be sure to give this one a try.
