Bronzing - Part II

by Sarah-Jane

Yesterday I told you about my favourite fake tanning products. Today is about Bronzers. There are a host of fab ones on the shelves this summer.

I am loving Lancaster Infinite Bronze SPF 8, £23 (0800 376 0688). It contains a combination of matt and iridescent powder so will give your face an instant boost without being over-powering.

If you’re looking for a bargain buy then try Prestige bronzer SPF15, £7.82 (Boots) which would suit nearly all skin tones.

Finally, look out for Too Faced Pure Bronze, £20 (larger Boots and departments stores), it is a mineral based loose bronzer that contains natural illuminating pigments that are activated by your own complexion, giving you the bronze effect that is perfect for you.

So go get bronzing girls.

Bronzing - Part I

by Sarah-Jane

This month it’s all about getting bronzed. Note that I wrote bronzed not brown ladies. For this is the key to getting that Californian glow when in reality the furthest you’re going is Camber Sands. Where the WAGs get it so wrong and the supermodels get it so right, is that a good tan and a good glow is having a multi-tonal colour rather than one flat colour which will make you look you’ve been tangoed.

So where to start, well I really love Fake Bake’s new Faux Glo, £10.99 (at House Of Fraser) it’s an instant tan that can only be washed off with warm soapy water. Don’t panic, even sweat and rain won’t make this streak. It delivers a gorgeous and flawless colour instantly that looks natural.

If you’re looking for something a bit more gradual then try Johnson’s re-formulated holiday skin, £4.99 [available nationwide]. Gone is the horrible smell and the tendency to go a bit streaky. The new formula smells delicious and gives a subtle and even colour.

These are my favourite fake tanning products. In tomorrows blog I will get you my top tips for great bronzers.

For the Feet

by Jess

With emu oil, I hear you ask? Well, yes. Though once I had gotten over the initial freak-out, I tried this foot scrub by Margaret Dabbs, a foot expert and Member of the British Chiropody & Podiatry Association. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the scrub did exactly what it said - smoothed my feet, got rid of dry skin and rejuvenated my painful, aching feet, which had been encased in 5-inch heels for the best part of the weekend. Slightly more expensive than your average foot scrub, but you definitely get what you pay for.

All Natural

by Jess

US number 1 best selling body care range - Jergens Naturals - is coming to the UK. Simple, effective, everyday products tailored to your skin type, and with its smart new packaging, they look good on your bathroom shelf too. At just under £5 a bottle, if you prefer your skincare to be natural, they're a great everyday solution, with more than 95% natural ingredients.

I tried the Skin Firming formula, which smelt lovely but it must be said, took a while to sink in and is probably best applied before bed. The Age Defying formula though was a clear winner - it smelt divine, and the extra moisturising ingredients mean that it's suitable for people of all ages - think prevention, not just cure!

Cult Status

by Sarah-Jane

We, here at LatestInBeauty, like to worship at beauty shrines other than our own, so we wanted to draw your attention to one of our favourite Mecca’s,

Not only does it stock the hottest products but it has a catalogue of experts giving their top tips and recommending their cult beauty products. Experts such as award winning hairdresser and colourist, Anita Cox, who I have recommended all my girl friends go and see and who have never looked back without swishing their perfectly highlighted tresses at me, and Andrea Fulerton, Revlon’s nail expert, who gives the most perfect manicure in the world. Fact.

I am a regular at and here are just some of my cult beauty buys.
BECCA shimmering skin perfector, £32. BECCA are renowned for their skin products and for offering everything and anything so that women can make their skin look the best it has ever looked. This gorgeous light moisturiser contains the ever important SPF and also light reflecting particles which instantly illuminate your skin. It comes in a few different colours, I use the rose quarts as I like the subtle hint of pink on my blonde complexion. The Topaz shade looks amazing on olive or very tanned skin, so a good purchase for Summer.

Dr Bronner Castile liquid soap, £4.75. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of this brand, it has only just hit our shores but it has a huge cult following in America and everyone from Oprah to make-up guru, Bobbi Brown loves it. It is an organic liquid soap that the Bronner family have been making for over 60 years. It’s USP is that it is so gentle that you can use it for 18 different uses - cleansing, showering, you can even use it to wash your teeth with! I particularly like the Peppermint flavour but there is also Lavender and Rose to choose from.

Louise Galvin treatment masque for fine hair, £26. This masque is also available in a different formulation for thicker hair but my baby fine hair responds phenomenally well to this one. It smells divine and leaving it to absorb for 10 minutes whilst I soak in the bath is like a mini-moment of peace and tranquillity. My hair literally looks transformed afterwards. Try it, I promise you won’t be disappointed with the results.
