This is a review of Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Lotion This is an awesome product, goes on smoothly on the skin, it moisturizes at the same time, it is not patchy or streaky and both the colour guard and the tan it leaves are of a nice golden brown colour tat fades in about week without going patchy. It smells good, like milk chocolate. I would recommend to anyone and everyone. It is definitely worth the price.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - St. Moriz Self Tanner Foam

This is a review of the DARK mousse Pros: -dries fast -bright colour guard -leaves a nice dark colour after washing off the colour guard Cons: -sits horribly on pores , especially on your face -the colour is patchy from day 1 -fades too quickly, 2 days after application all the tan is gone -dries out skin -can get streaky because it dries really fast I bought this because of all the good reviews I found online combined with the cheap pricetag, but I was disappointed and I would not buy it again. First off I highly advise you against application on your face: it is too drying; it makes you look like you put mud on your face when you have the colour guard on (believe me,although temporary, this is very depressing) and when you wash it off it leaves your pores (especially on the nose) horribly dark like you've never had a facial in your whole life ( and I don't have oily skin, and my pores had never looked so blatant in my whole life). It is very patchy on the rest on the body too, as if the mousse had not sank properly all over. This is clearly the product's fault because I scrubbed vigorously before applying and did not moisturize(because they say that moisturizing before application of self tan does not allow the product to sink in properly) and nevertheless the result was not good. I ended up mixing it with a cheap moisturizing lotion (1/4 of this mousse and 3/4 of lotion) not to dump it directly to the trashcan. I now use this mix sparingly in between proper tanning lotions of other brands, but I look forward to finish this a.s.a.p. I usually use Xen Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Lotion and this is an awesome product to which I will stick. I've never had any issue with it. I would not recommend St. Moriz mousse.
I have very sensitive skin and I can't put anything on my face except La roche Posay's face creams. So when I decided to self tan I got Xen Tan for my body and Autohelios for my face , I have to say this was the best choice: La Roche Posay never lets me down, I've had no reaction to this cream and I can use it even daily instead of my usual face cream (La roche Posay's Toleriane or Hydreane) and it's given me a very good tan , like the one I'd never be able to achieve naturally since I only get sunburnt and never tan. I'd recommend this to everyone with sensitive and fair skin, but not at all to someone who's already olive or dark skinned, because this cream wouldn't make you bronzed enough.
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Tangle Teezer

This brush really lives up to its repuatation. I was curious enough to buy it but wary of the hype and in the end I'm so happy I got this detangling wonder. It does work, it brushes away every single hair without pulling or hurting as every other brush would. Every woman should have this tool. It works wonders, you will spend a third of the time you used to spend on detangling, either wet or dry.
This is one of the few face creams (the others are by la Roche posay too) I can use without getting a major rash . I've got very sensitive reactive skin. It really soothes and moisturizes without giving me any redness or irritation.
I was finally able to find Batiste in France at Leclerc. I purchased the 200 ml /3.76 oz can for 3.70€ plus a 50 cents off discount, very good deal. I got it in original, blush and brit. The three of them smell great: original smells like lemon candies, blush is sweet/floral and brit reminds me of some high-end perfume. All of them are as effective and leave no white residue at all even on my dark brown roots, so I wouldn't suggest paying more for the brunette version.Just make sure you shake well and spray it far enough from your head, as per directions on the can. It is very easily brushed out and leaves my hair really soft, clean and perfumed. I was amazed by the result since the only other dry shampoo I'd tried (Klorane) left my hair gritty and grey marks all over the place,making me want to wash it as soon as possible. Batiste is completely different, the result is flawless. I'll keep on using and repurchasing this over and over.
This is my number one staple product. Both my husband and I use it daily as a shampoo as well as a body wash. It is absolutely perfect: it cleans your hair and scalp thoroughly and leaves your hair and skin soft and moisturized at the sime time. The foam it creates is the richest one I've ever touched, it is so different than any other shampoo I've tried, you can feel the moisturizing agents in the foam. The thing that got us addicted to this shampoo is the smell, it is so good we can't stop using this, it smells like tropical fruit/watermelon/ginger/holidays. I definitely recommend this product for the whole family.
