I wish! Specially at this time of the year!
In case you were wondering, no, I definitely don’t have it. Despite being Spanish I have a fair to medium skin and right now is more on the super pale side of the spectrum.
I tend to use sunless tan products from springtime till autumn, basically till is not conceivable any more that I’m tanned despite of the fact that there has been no sun out for ages and I just feel a tiny bit ridiculous.
It is not springtime yet but I’m fed up of being pale, which accentuates all my skin flaws and makes me look tired (and sometimes sick with people asking me if I feel ok!).
So I decided to get a moisturizer with a bit of sunless tanner which is how I gradually start getting a touch of colour.
I picked this at Boots because I had one of those 5£ off coupons on N7 products. I’ve used other moisturizers with sunless tanner.
No7 Gradual Facial Tan
Not that you can read anything here...
I have to say that this does give a touch of healthy colour but is actually lighter than I expected and definitely lighter than the previous one I was using (but haven’t been able to find that easily), the Olay Complete Care Everyday Sunshine Dark Glow.
The texture is quite rich so I’d probably stay away from it if you have oily skin but it quite works for me at least at this time of the year.
My only complain is that since it is that light I think I’m rubbing it off every night when I’m taking off my make up. So I really need to apply it every day if I want to see any result, which is a bit of a pain since I was intending to alternate it with my regular illuminating day moisturizer (also from No7, Light and Illuminate). But I guess it will do for the moment. Not ready yet to start with proper sunless tanner…at least till next month or so…before my next trip to warmer climates!
Do you guys use sunless tanner in winter? Or have you started again?

I bought this Korres body milk while I was in Spain last Christmas (but you can get this brand also in the UK and the US as well).
Korres Body Milk in Jasmine
"Jasmine: a captivating aroma of newly opened jasmine buds"
I was looking for a hand cream with a pump to keep it next to my coffee table at home or desk at work…and didn’t find any that was not supergreasy or with a nice lingering scent…
Till I went shopping with my sister, who loves everything jasmine scented, and she told me she had bought this body milk for herself last summer and she really liked it but wasn’t using it for the body anymore because it was a bit greasy and she was starting to break out…
The next thing I know I tried it on in my hands and thought that this could make a lovely hand cream. It does take a tiny bit to absorb but it smells sooo nice that I forgive that. Afer a while the feeling is not greasy at all and you’re left with a truly lovely fragrance in your hands that lingers for quite a while. (**Just put some on my hands 5 min ago and keep sniffing my hands while typing!!**)
I was happy to see that others (like Laura from @lollipop26) also likes this as a hand moisturizer!
What do you think? Haveyou tried this or any other Korres products?
Just I quick post to show you the most delicious lip gloss I bought recently (yeah! it actually tastes quite sweet!).
It’s from Rimmel London and it’s called, well Delicious!
Delicious Rimmel Gloss
It leaves a very subtle raspberry tint to your lips leaving them quite glossy and soft. Staying power is almost null but I really like the taste and how it leaves my lips. Word of caution: for those winter days when it’s supercold you would need a good lip balm as a base or better yet, just leave it for those other days when it’s not that cold!
This is an attempt to show how it looked on my lips although it almost unnoticeable…
Delicious gloss on my lips
This was under £5 so I’m thinking of getting more flavours (although don’t really know if they come in other flavours or just other colors…)
Do you also like glosses wich taste sweet?
I’ve been using these almost every single day since I bought them !
ELF and Body Shop Lip balm/gloss
This is actually an old picture. There’s not so much left of them now.
I like the texture and their scent is great. The price (£1.50 for the ELf, and £1 for the BS one) is unbeatable!
Unfortunately ELF is discontinuing these (why? oh why?) but I have a couple of them as back up. My favourite by far is the pink one.
These have been reviewed before so I’ll stop now.
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!
Physician’s Formula Mineral Loose Powder
I bought this in Canada last winter.
LOVE IT! I use it as a foundation/base almost everyday and gives my skin a very nice matte but not cakey finish.
Physician's Formula Mineral Loose Powder
It comes with a brush...
…that I don’t use really.
I think it was about 12$ (Canadian) and it the container is quite big so I think it was a good price for the value. The color is yellow base which I like and think suits my skin tone best than a pinky base.
This has made me fell in love with mineral products. It doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin, I like the color, the finish, well, I think overall it’s a great product. It may not have a very long-lasting power but for the price I won’t complain…
I’m a bad blogger and I don’t recall reviewing this before (bad, bad, bad) but it definitely deserves a Best of 2010 mention!
Have you also jumped on the mineral powder wagon?
