On with the products I’ve finished up lately…
Year round fake tan
Well, these are not exactly finished but almost, and I’ve been using them non-stop since about May (not sure that counts, but hey).
The Summerbody is a moisturizer with fake tanner. It keeps my skin well moisturized and has able to maintain the color that I got this summer. To be honest by now the color is almost gone but at list thanks to this a have a healthy color and I’m no scary white like I’d otherwise would be…
The Loreal’s product is a gel. I like it because it’s very easy to blend and gives a naturally tanned color. I don’t specially like the smell but I can cope with it. This has alpha-hydroxy acids which smooth my skin and make it fresh and helps disguise the small/thin (getting much bigger!) lines in my forehead.
N7 Lift & Luminate-night cream
I finished this up before the summer (I used Nivea’s with anti-wrinkle cream Q10 coenzyme with light tanner this summer for daytime). I wanted to give my skin some glow while getting rid of the dullness after the winter months. It wasn’t something instantly obvious but I think by the end of the pot I was getting there and saw some improvement. This is around £20. Not cheap but not the priciest either. I recently purchased this again for daytime using one of the Boots £5 off for N7 products (willing to give another try) so I’ll keep you posted.
Last but not least:
Sally Hansen's Insta-DRY
This has been the ultimate life saver, well, more like nail polish saver.
Since I use this I have been able to apply two coats one after the other, then this and after a few minutes (except when very humid) my manicure is done and stays for 4-5 days. That NEVER happened before.
This has lasted a good three years. In the end it was so thick I could hardly apply it but on the positive side I think it made my polish last even longer. I finally opened a new bottle now.
Bought in the US but I think I’ve seen it in some big Superdrug stores.
Shiseido Benefiance Pure retinol Eye mask
I bought this (a bit of a splurge for me!) as an present for my birthday (yes, I give myself presents every year!). This is a set of 12 pairs and I’ve only used once so I cannot give a through review just yet. Wanted to used them at least once a week but already forgot last week so…
Gone with the old in with the new! I will be posting some of my new purchases this weekend.
I’m really trying to be good and stop buying things but I’ve been pretty bad lately…
