    Favourite BB / CC Creams

    When it comes to base makeup my requirements vary dependant on occasion, current skin condition, amount of fake tan I’m wearing and how much I can be bothered!  If I’m having a particularly good skin day I love nothing more than reaching for a decent, light coverage foundation and more often than not a BB or CC Cream is my go to.

    I’ve often been asked what I’m using on my skin when I’m wearing lighter products, a reassurance that less really can be more! Experimenting with different products can be a lengthy and costly affair, so I decided to compile a review of my favourite Creams, varying in budget, properties and finish for anyone who is wondering what to try…

    Trying 75p Fake Tan!!

    I love experimenting with new products – makeup, #tan,  hair care, food!  You name it, I’m always on the look out for a new favourite! Recently something caught my eye in … believe it or not … Poundland! Please stay with me…

    On the shelf next to your typical less than exciting Poundland tanning range, I spotted the cheapest bottle of fake tan I have ever encountered.  And, I have to be honest, it looked cheap.  Obnoxious white plastic bottle, orange logo (not the most inviting colour for a tanning product) and a black crazy font boasting the name of the product; “Ibiza Honey”.  Nothing about it was inviting actually.  And the price tag of an unbelievably meagre 75p was a testament to how inevitably bad it was sure to be (?).

    But, ever the curious cat, I grabbed a bottle.  If nothing else I figured I’d have a tale to tell!
