Top Three Self Tanning Products

Hello everyone!

If there is one thing I know is that summer is a rough time for us pale girls.  Honestly, I have learned to love my pale skin but sometimes you just want a little extra glow for a special occasion.  I have tried out three amazing products this summer and I wanted to tell you all about them!

  1. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Deep 4oz • $11.74 •
    This was sent to me in my inflencer box! (Don’t know what that is?  Check it out here!)  This was one of the best things I tried to transform my legs! It left me with silky smooth legs and gave me the right amount of color that I didn’t look crazy with tanner legs than the rest of my body.  I would shy away from trying to put this anywhere else but for your legs this is my number one pick! I am obsessed.
  2. Tarte maracuja rainforest glow instant matte waterproof body perfector, park ave princess • $39
    This and the Sally Hansen product are very very similar but this one is safe to use all over your body!  This is what I was wearing on my 21st birthday to get a nice glow (Check out that vlog here!) I was honestly worried that it would transfer throughout the night when we were out but it stayed on my skin into the early morning!
  3. St Tropez Self Tan Dark Bronzing Mousse • $44 •
    This is an old tried and true for the beauty community and it has that badge of honor for a reason!  This is the most natural form of tan that you can find in a bottle.  Also, this one is a gradual tan that is longer lasting than the other two.  If I had to choose one of the three to go out and buy I would splurge on this one because of the longevity of the tan!

I apologize I haven’t been as active on here as I should but I have been posting on my Youtube, so go check me out here!

2015 June Favorites

Rosebud Perfume Co. Rosebud Salve: $6.00
This is a must for me!  It has been such a life saver this month with the issues I have been having with my skin.  It heals irritation, and soothes the sting of minor burns. It is so versatile, you’re able to dab it on chapped lips, elbows, or knees to condition and relieve dryness.
Rosebud Salve Tin, .8 Ounce

IT COSMETICS Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer: $24.00
This is a true game-changer in my mascara routine! This gives you ultimate length and volume. But the best part is, if you have sparse, the Tightline brush lays down black pigment along your entire lash line, filling in spare spots, giving you a full beautiful lash line and the look of an eyeliner! This creates instant definition without taking up extra eye lid Space.  For me I do not enjoy wearing eyeliner most days but this gives me the dark lashes that I want!  It truly is worth every penny.

Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit: $45.00
This kit is fool proof!  There are three powders in this kit: highlighting, bronzing, and contouring!  These three blendable, buildable shades contour, bronze, and highlight the face for perfect contouring each time.  It does come with a brush but I haven’t been using that.  I almost always stick with my Sigma brushes (an all time favorite!).

Clear Intense Hydration Shampoo: $6.00
This favorite was inspired by one of my guy friends, he was talking about the men’s version and I was instantly reminded of how much I love this shampoo!  It is a drug store shampoo but it makes me feel like I am fresh out of the salon.  Clear scalp and hair beauty therapy made with nutrium 10, nourishes the scalp, creating the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair.  Instantly I was able to feel a difference in my hair.  I am obsessed. 
Clear Scalp and Hair Intense Hydration Nourishing Shampoo, 21.9 Ounce

Coconut Oil:
THIS HAS SAVED MY SKIN.  
I featured this in my Skin Saving Bath Tips post, but I have been using it every day and I can honestly say I will never go back to other forms for moisturizer.  There are so many other things I use coconut oil for, would y’all be interested in me making a post about that?
Nature’s Way Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, 32-Ounce

Skin Saving Bath Tips

I am a very strong supporter of sitting in the bath every night to relax!  It is something I love and something I do for myself.
Currently my skin has taken a turn for the worst.  I am covered in small dry patches that will not stop itching.  I went to urgent care and was given a prescription that did not work.  Just yesterday I went to the dermatologist and was told I have Pityriasis Rosa, which is a virus I contracted airborne.  It will go away in about 8-10 week but until then I was given a cream.  This cream was not enough to sooth my skin.  Below are my best tips and tricks for taking a soothing bath!

You Will Need:
A bath filled with warm water (Be sure not to make it too hot or it will irritate the skin)
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 spoon full of coconut oil

Instructions:
Place all the ingredients in the bath while it is filling up.  The coconut oil may need some assistance in melting since it is in solid form.  Just take it in your hand and help it melt.
Sit in the bath for a long as you would like!
While in the bath take the water and massage your skin to help the oil sink in.
Once you are ready to leave the bath, grab a clean towl and be sure to pat yourself dry.  If you rub then you will be rubbing off the oils that are now on your skin.
I suggest you do this right before you sleep.  Be sure to sleep in clothes so you do not transfer the oil onto your bed.
* Be careful the tub will be very slippery! 

Clean Up:
The oil will collect at the bottom of your tub.
Grab disk soap and drizzle it over the oil and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Take a brush and lightly scrub the tub.
Rise the tub!

I hope this helps you like this helped me!  For additional moisture put coconut oil on your skin after you get out of the bath.
