Well, I might have to take back that Palmer’s Gradual Tanning Moisturiser is the best on the market in my opinion.

I’ve been using Vani-T Bronzing Custard (a gradual tanner) for a month now and I am just continually amazed at the results. It gives skin a very smooth, tanning glow that doesn’t look too heavy or bronze. I use it every second day after exfoliating to maintain a subtle tan, but if you want a heavier tan or have a special event on, using this two days in a row will definitely do the trick. No wonder Dannii Minogue buys it in bulk!

It has a thicker consistency (probably where the name custard comes from), which makes it a bit more of a task to apply in summer, nonetheless, doing it after you shower and exfoliate will ensure a little goes a long way.

It only has a very subtle scent, which does not stay with you all day.

In fact, the tan is so nice from this product that I would even consider using it during Winter, which is normally a big NO NO from me. This product enhances a healthy glow which doesn’t look obvious or overdone.

I would definitely recommend asking Santa for this product! Online purchase recommended.


As the new range of Champneys spa products launched in Boots recently I was eager to try one of their new shower scrubs. I picked up the watermint shower scrub, and I was a bit hesitant at first because I’m not a big fan of mint (eg. I used bubble gum flavored toothpaste until the age if 16 before succumbing to the awful taste of mint toothpaste). I thought that the mint in this product may invigorate my skin with it’s refreshing qualities.
What I have now got on my hands is pretty much my worst mint nightmare. When I used this shower scrub it was like washing myself in toothpaste!! It even has the same colour and texture as mint toothpaste – light green and slightly bubbly. I am not sure how widely this scrub was tested on target markets however I am pretty sure most people wouldn’t like smothering themselves in something like toothpaste everyday – or maybe that’s just me?!

After being disappointed with the last hand cream I used (dove visible difference) I was looking forward to trying a new cream. Next on my list was Vaseline hand cream, and different to the dove hand cream, I find that you can apply this just once and your hands feel soft and moisturized for hours. The dove hand cream had me reapplying at least three times a day, which is inconvenient if your day involves driving, typing, etc.

Because it’s Vaseline (ie not top Girly) the boys r not afraid to use it either! The other thing I like about it is that it also strengthens Ur nails, which will come in handy for when I get my fakies off this wkend.
