Pale vs Tanned.

Milk bottle, was one of many nicknames I’ve had over the years while growing up. I’m your typical Irish stereotype, pale and freckly. Over the years, I’ve had moments where I’ve embraced the pale look and I’ve had moments where I dreamed of becoming a tanned Greek goddess. So, I hit the shops looking for the perfect tan in a bottle.

I’ve always been apprehensive when applying tan. Tan and I have a love/hate relationship because I always associate it to the days when I was thirteen and applied it to my legs only. Memories of orange legs and a white *shivers* face, still haunt me to this day. So I decided to forgo the tan for a couple of years and decided pale was less hassle, but as the summer months of 2014 approached, I longed for the Greek goddess glow.

Investing a little of my spare time, I researched the best tan for the pale gals, asked my friends and even reading a few blogs on how to prepare the skin and make the tan look as natural as possible.

These are the products worked for me :

1. Rimmel Instant Tan

I’m not a major fan of developing tans, you can’t really trust what colour is actually going to come up and not only that I’m not keen on walking around for awhile trying not to touch anything (girl problems).  With me convenience is key so instant tan works well for moi. I like Rimmel’s Instant tan for two reasons

  1.  It’s easy to apply.
  2. It doesn’t cost me and arm and a leg

I like to think when it come’s to skincare products that you should buy the best product for your skin not the cheapest but it’s always a plus when you don’t break the bank 🙂 I usually pick this product up in Penney’s (Primark) or you’ll most likely find it in your local chemist.

It retails for about €6/7 depending on where you go!






2. Vichy Dermablend

 

 

Not exactly a tan but a great cover up but it works really well with tan especially when covering up scars, acne and stretch marks. I really really liked this during the summer because even when I wasn’t using it on my body I could use it on my face. I wouldn’t use it everyday as it is a pretty full coverage more of  a night time foundation . It’s quite drying on the skin too so don’t forget to moisturise and exfoliate!

You can find this product in Boots for €22.99

Vichy-DERMABLEND-Corrective-Foundation

 

 

 

As I venture into the Winter months I haven’t really decided who will win the war, all I know is that I like my skin both ways and you should like your skin both ways too.
Until next time a chairde,
grá mór,

 

January Favourites.

I know I’m late on the bandwagon but here are a few of my January favourites!

 

  1. Essence Studio Nails Hardening Nail Base

 

I picked this nail hardener up on a whim because my nails were feeling weak after fake nails! I put it on before putting nail varnish on and after a few weeks I felt them getting stronger and not breaking as much. It’s also great an protecting your nail from being stained from the nail varnish itself! Cheap and cheerful I got this in Penney’s for about 3 euro!

 

2. Forever Aloe Lips
This is great for people like myself who suffer with chapped lips. I don’t leave the house without it and I put it on before lipstick! Made with aloe vera it’s nice to know that you’re putting something natural on your lips! Handy for carrying arounds it’s 4 euro!

 

 
3.Soap & Glory’s Hand Food
I’m lucky I got this as a present from a friend for Christmas! It’s actually great not only does it smell amazing but I like it because it protects my hands from the harsh weather!

 

4.Cobalt Clutch from Penney’s 
I spotted this the other day while browsing with a friend (I say browsing because I wasn’t meant to be shopping) . I thought it was a great staple piece because cobalt is a big colour for spring. I think it’ll be a great bag for going out because it’s the right size for essentials. I couldn’t just leave it in the shop it was only 7 euro. Bargain!
Thanks for Reading! Until next time xo
