I picked up Cocoa Brown’s Gradual Bronze as I had heard so many positive reviews and I also love their 1 Hour Tan too. Gradual Bronze is a gradual tanner which can be used as often as need to build up a gorgeous subtle glow. I think this is great if you can’t really be bothered with all the preparation that goes along with self-tanning e.g. exfoliating and moisturing on the lead up to tanning and so on. With this you simply apply it like a moisturiser once you hop out of the shower.

Cocoa Brown Gentle Bronze

Like all the Cocoa Brown products there is no fake tan smell and it smells quite florally due to the tahitian gardenia flower.  As well as providing you skin with a buildable tan it is also really moisturing leaving skin feeling lovely and soft. You can apply this with your hands as long as you make sure to wash them afterwards – you don’t want to tan you’re palms! If you prefer though you can always use a tanning mitt just to be sure. I tried both methods and found that it I was able to achieve a beautiful streak free glow either way.

I did find that I needed a couple of applications to build up the colour to a shade that I liked, however this will of course depend on your skin tone when you start. For what I’ve seen from other reviews, if you are really, really pale this will show up well from the first application. I found that from the first application as you can see in the picture below, there was a difference but it was quite subtle and gave a slight glow.

I decided to wait a day before applying it again and as you can see on the second application the colour has definitely built up to a beautiful light tan colour. I think that this is perfect of you want just a hint of colour or if you are quite pale and find that some tans are just too dark for you.  It was hard to achieve the same lighting as they were taken on different days but there was definitely a big difference when applied the second time although it may not show up as well on the picture.

Vilka sminkprodukter använder du?

Olika beroende på hur mycket smink jag använder. Oftast så använder jag bara ögonbrynspenna och mascara. Vill jag vara lite mer festfin så kan det bli ögonskugga, kajal eller eyeliner, foundation, rouge och highlighter på det. Jag är ganska nogrann när jag köper nytt smink att det inte ska vara testat på djur och så naturligt som möjligt. Det hittas lättast på hälsobutiker! Googla annars på vad som kan hittas i din stad.

 

Vilka är dina tre bästa respektive sämsta egenskaper/personlighetsdrag? 

Sämsta: 1. Känslomänniska 2. Perfektionist 3. Frihetssjäl. Bästa: 1. Kreativ 2. Analytisk 3. Empatisk.

 

Beskriv dig själv med tre ord  

Kreativ, tänkande, drömmande

 

Hemmakväll/utekväll?

Hemmakväll. Jag älskar att mysa... Tända ljus, baka bröd för att sedan bjuda mina nära på det tillsammans med olika sylter och annat och mysa ner sig i soffan med en filt och se film på det.  

Utekvällar har jag betydligt mer sällan men det kan vara fruktansvärt kul det med. Några av dom roligaste kvällarna i mitt liv har varit när jag har varit ute. Jag har dock lite högre krav på att en utekväll ska bli bra så därför kommer det på andraplats.

Vilken är din favoritserie just nu? 

Jag har ingen (hur tråkigt nu än det svaret låter)... Den första serien jag såg var One Tree Hill och vad jag upptäckte efter att ha sett den serien är att ingen.annan.toppar. Har ni tips får ni jättegärna dela med er!

 

När känner du att du "hittade" din stil? Tips för att hitta sin egen stil?

Jag tror att jag har varit medveten under en ganska lång tid hur jag har velat klä mig, kanske närmare sex års tid, men hade till en början inte material för det. Jag bygger upp min garderob mer och mer och på så sätt blir det en starkare karaktär på min stil med tiden, men självklart så utvecklas den och delvis förändras också!

 

Hur stylar du ditt hår?

Jag vet att det här kommer bli ett tråkigt svar men den bittra sanningen är att jag inte gör så mycket med mitt hår p.g.a att undvika slitage. När jag stylar det så lockar jag det med plattång (tycker att lockarna blir naturligare på så vis) vid topparna, möjligtvis tuperar jag håret lite i botten också för mer volym.

I love these Flash tattoos. They are so easy to use and are long-lasting. They are that perfect accessory to wear instead of chunky jewelry (which makes packing for vacation whole lot simpler) and are very eye-catching. You have the flexibility to use them however and wherever you want and also can alter the size and shape of them by cutting them into chunks or strips.

So I'm back from Vegas and I want to share with you my favourite products that I used while I while I was away.  First up, the body moisturiser I took with me - E45 silky radiance.

 
Skin can get so dry in the sun, plus with all the air conditioning I was subjecting myself to, I relied on this heavily.  I did use an after sun too, but I used this moisturiser even when I hadn't been in the sun just to rid my skin of that tight feeling it can get when it's too dry.  I never need so much moisturiser when I'm at home, but really noticed my skin getting dehydrated in the dry heat of Vegas.  
 
The E45 silky radiance worked perfectly for me on holiday.  It's not so heavy that you have to wait ages or it to sink in and it didn't leave any stickiness - it just made my skin feel hydrated and comfortable.  I also liked to subtle shimmer than this gives to the skin - unfortunately my camera hasn't picked it up but in real life it gives a lovely sheen that just makes the skin look healthy and bright, especially once you're a little bit bronze!

I'd tried a Nuxe lipbalm before in stick form, and it was rather nice, but the Reve de Miel tub just takes it to a whole other level.  It's the perfect thing to put on my lips at night - it goes on in a matte layer that last and last, moisturising the lips all night - it's still there when I wake up in the morning!  

 
As you can see I've already made a little dent in my tub - I couldn't resist giving it a go on the tube on the way home!  It's has a lovely fragrence, the same as the stick lip balm, which I always think smells like is a cross between lemon and honey, and it goes on really easily and like I said it's quite matte.  
 
I've also worn this balm in the day and applied lip gloss or lipstick over the top with no issues.  It's just such a comforting product to put on your lips if they're feeling a bit dry sore, and the effect from using it over night is quite lasting in terms of repairing dry or cracked lips.  
 
Have I raved enough about this now?
