The Only Way Is A Spray Tan


Up and coming reality tv star Lauren Goodger, of The Only Way Is Essex, has recently launched her own salon in Buckhurst Hill, Essex. Fans are now able to get up, close and personal with the it girl of Essex and sample her new range of self tan.  With myself being such a big fan of the show I simply had to visit the salon to try out the infamous spray tans. Priced only at fifteen pounds with a free glass of bubbly it gives you a glimpse into the glamorous world of Essex.

Only taking twenty minutes to apply and dry, this is great for cutting out streaky hands and the fear of over tanning certain areas.

At first I was quite shocked at the colour of the lotion due to its intensity, but found after a shower and a few hours later the colour was neutralized and developed into a natural looking tan. It’s been a week since the application and my tan has still not faded.  I would definitely fit in with the Essex gang but would also fit in with any Cornwall location. The tan leaves your skin glowing and feeling much healthier, perfect for those summer evenings.

If you are interested in a ‘Lauren’s Way’ tan, she has introduced a tanning lotion, gel and a mousse which has been recommended for its easy application.

Advice – Exfoliate and recommend you use a self tanning mitt to avoid those orange stained hands.

Clarins – Daily Energizers face cream


Luckily I don’t suffer from spots or many blemishes, but just recently as the weather is much colder and the air more dry, I’ve found my face to be extra sore. I have been using Nivea for face for a while now but I’m starting to find the cream is too thick and greasy and often just becomes sticky whilst I’m at work.

I went to Boots to browse all the beauty counters to speak to someone about my skin issue. The one counter that struck me and also reasonable in it’s prices was Clarins. I have already read in Company magazine the great reviews for the well known skin brand and always wanted to try it.

On the makeup desk they explained to me that Clarins have just released a new skin line called ‘Daily Energizers’ that specializes for the ages of 18 to late 20’s. Clarins also made the energizer range cheaper so young people can afford it. I’ve been using the cream for about a week now and would definitely recommend it to anyone buying it.

The range also has a daily energizer cleansing foam and wake-up booster. Available at Boots stockists.

All products are under twenty pounds.
