How to Get Clear Skin Simply

Vaseline Spray Moisturiser Review

Since this product came out a while ago, I have been intrigued to try it as as far as I know, it is the only thing on the market doing this job. I am a big fan of the Soap and Glory 'Easy Glistening' Dry Oil but mainly for the shimmer. However, often body butter can be too time consuming and as it takes so long to absorb it cannot be applied before clothing. Plus at under £2.50, the Vaseline spray seemed a win-win choice for a quick fix.  I am really impressed with this product, my skin feels moisturised but not sticky and I could've put my clothes on within 30 seconds of spraying on. The aloe vera is also lovely as it is very subtle and the soothing effect is lovely-today has been quite hot and this was really refreshing.  Although I wouldn't trade in my body butter as it is only a light moisturiser, I can definitely see this becoming a frequent item on my shopping list; the size will also be great for travelling!  Have a lovely day, Elle xxx

How To Be Confident This Summer (and all year!)

Hello everyone Summer is well underway and here in the UK, the weather has been reasonably bareable and with many of us also jetting off on holiday, the bikinis and revealing clothing are impending - a thought that for some is incredibly scary.   I am aware that I don't really tell people much about myself on this blog for the sake of this post I thought I would give you a little background (very simply put): ( side note - I hope nobody feels this way but I am not playing the victim at all and am simply giving a miniature confidence biography, which I'm hoping will help people who feel like me)  When I was little, I had so much confidence it was unbelievable - thinking back now I probably had too much, I think the only year I've ever been in trouble with the teacher at school was in reception (for non UK readers, that's the first year of school, aged 4/5) when this confidence was apparent. However, due to various things happening over the years from things people had sai…

St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion Review

Hello all, hope everybody is enjoying the summer!

As many of you may know, I am exceptionally pale (which I still cannot find the reason for as the rest of my family tan easily) and after spending a fortnight lying n a beach I will still only have the smallest tan ever - forget tanning in the UK, I'll just burn.
But Elle, I hear you say, just fake it?
My problems is, even the 'no streaks' fake tans that I have tried have gone streaky, clearly due to user error but I simply cannot apply the stuff - even gradual tan body lotions.
I don't think I can rave enough about this product. The St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion (that's a mouthful) is so easy and quick to use; just hop in the shower, apply the lotion (with the shower off) and wait 3 minutes (I clean my teeth or take off my make up) then rinse off!

Despite using this about 9 times so far, I have still never experienced streaks and my tan is still very natural looking. It also leaves your skin silk…
