Skinny Tan Limited Edition Rose Gold 7 - Day Tanner

A Perfect Rose Gold Tan in Just Seven Days

After last week’s heat wave I thought we were set for summer… erm, where did it go? Who needs the sun anyway when we have Skinny Tan! You may have seen my previous feature on the Skinny Tan self tanning products that have taken the nation by storm. Well I am over the moon that they have launched another product, Skinny Tan Limited Edition Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner.

Rose gold is a huge thing right now. We see it everywhere; in homeware, accessories, branding and particularly wedding styling. I am a massive fan of rose gold.

Skinny Tan has pushed the boundaries with their brand new Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner, and I am totally in love with it! Who doesn’t want rose gold all over their body?

Skinny Tan Limited Edition Rose Gold 7 - Day Tanner

Since trying the Skinny Tan products for the first time last year I am hooked. I’m naturally quite pale and have tried many tanning products and always end up a terrible shade of orange, streaky and smelling of McDonald’s fries (so my husband says!). That was until I experienced Skinny Tan.

The Rose Gold 7-Day Tanner bronzes the skin with a luxe rose gold shimmer whilst a natural looking, streak-free tan develops underneath. As you apply the tan you can see exactly where you are applying it with the beautiful bronze glow, and you can instantly see a difference.

It says to leave for at least six hours (I left mine overnight) and then you simply wash it off. The shimmer washes away, leaving you with a natural and flawless tan that lasts for up to seven days.

Application

This tanner works in the same way as the other Skinny products. I used the Skinny Tan Pre Tan Primer to prep my skin. This crushed walnut shell primer removes any dry or dead skin cells, which helps to achieve a perfect finish to your tan. Note – you should always prime a few hours before you tan.

TYME Iron

Create the Perfect Curls with the TYME Iron

Have you seen the buzz on social media recently about the TYME Iron? If not, where have you been? The TYME Iron it the most incredible two-in-one hair tool you’ll ever own. Not only does it straighten your hair, but it can also curl it… yes, curl it!

The TYME Iron is a revolutionary hair tool that creates many types of curl, from waves to bouncy curls and ringlets. Now you can create a beautiful head of curls in a matter of minutes. Depending on the style you’re going for and how you create the curl, we’re talking 10 minutes or less!

TYME Iron

I have dead-straight hair and have always curled my hair one way or another if I go out (I mean out out, not just out to the shops). I have used tongs, rollers, benders (do you remember benders?), braids – the lot. As my hair is so straight and fine it takes so much effort to create a decent curl. I spray it with hairspray and it looks great for about half an hour. Then it’s straight again! Anyone else have hair like this?

Well, now I have a TYME Iron, and oh my goodness it really is THE best hair product ever made (seriously!). When I saw the TYME Iron I instantly thought how great it would be for brides-to-be and bridesmaids who want to style their own hair on the wedding day. The videos show just how easy it is to use and how pretty the curls look.
