Product review: Dry Shampoo to the rescue

We all had those days where there was just no time for a shower. Or at least I did! This usually happens during exams period where you study all day and there's just not time for even a quick shower!! Especially girls with long hair like mine where I would have to either straighten it or curl it. How do you get rid of oily hair very quickly?
I have bumped in to this amazing product of dry shampoo a week ago, I got two different ones from different brands. The first dry shampoo is from the brand "Batiste" this is actually the first that I got but it did not work very well with my dark hair! Because it looked like I applied baby powder all over my hair! This would be good if your hair was lighter or blondish. The second one which I am using now is called "TRESEMME FRESH START DRY SHAMPOO" this product it the best, it doesn't turn white like the previous one because it's transparent, and it smells good!

I love this product!!

Product review: June = Tanning

So it's summer already and we all want that summer tan! As for me I've decided to just get a little tint of tan this summer. I don't want a dark tan like the ones I had the previous summers because I realised that I look better with just a light tan tone! And how do I get that? Well, by using a self-tanner. I'm not a big fan of self-tan because I can't get it right, a lot of streaks! but I'll just have to learn the best way of using it and apply it daily instead of applying a lotion! Because it still keeps my skin moist. As for the smell of Henna on all the first tanners? I gave up looking for one that would smell good! I was looking on people's reviews of different self-tanners and I ended up getting "L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Gel Face & Body". This products is not any better than any other self-tanner, but it does smell good when first applied but then you'll start smelling like Henna the next day! As for the colour? It's absolutely gorgeous, very natural looking tan.

PS: if you're getting this products be careful to pick up the "lotion" tan of L'Oreal that is identical to the "Gel" tube! the Gel tan is is clear packing the other one isn't.
