Hi beauties 🌞

I was meant to get this up yesterday but was soooo busy.. so here it is today, my First Impressions on the Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed!:)

What Soap & Glory claim

• PLUS surface-polishing micro beads
• use weekly on areas susceptible to blackhead build-up
• strategically formulated for oily/combination skin

What I thought

In Boots it retails for £11.50 and for that price you can’t really say no to trying it.
I first heard about this product from The Makeup Chair on YouTube (definitely check out her channel!!). I always go by her recommendations as she always trials products thoroughly before! 🙂

Although this is only a first impression I really loved the results. My skin felt lovely & soft. Also, I have some blackheads on my nose, they seemed to be reduced.

When you first apply this its a creamy coloured product, with a cream like texture and micro beads for exfoliation. Once you start rubbing it into the face it turns a blue colour. This means the hot poreclear technology has been activated. To be honest you can tell it’s working as your face feels warmer. It does feel strange for a minute or so.

You leave it on for about 3 minutes, it makes your face a bit stiff but is tacky to tough. After the time was up I just washed it off using a muslin cloth & patted my face dry with a towel.

Overall I really loved this product after just one use, I’ll definitely keep you updated on how I get on with it.

Have you tried this product? 🙂

Lots of Love Natasha

First Impression Friday: St. Tropez Gradual Tan ❤

Hi beauties 🌞

So spring is upon us & its that time of year again when we want to start looking a bit healthier (or at least less vampy!!!).
To begin this transition into spring/summer skin I decided to take the plunge & buy the St Tropez Gradual Tan! I’ve heard such good things about this brand & product, but never took the plunge.

St Tropez Gradual Tan
– light/medium skin formula
– 100% natural tanning agent
– natural streak-free colour
– easy to use

Before I applied this product I had a shower, I didn’t exfoliate my body, I just washed as usual. I like to apply my tan on a night before I go to bed, so it can develop over night & I wake up a bronze goddess 🙂

This gradual tan comes in two shades light/medium & medium/dark! Being very pale I chose the lightest one! To apply this product it is very simple as the product is a cream formula which comes out white. As this is a gradual tan, it acts as a moisturiser & tan in one, which always wins me over!

While applying this gradual tan I noticed it had quite a fragrant, floral scent, which to me was very pleasant as with most gradual tans you get that ‘fake tan’ odour!!!! (Ew!) I was very pleased with this as throughout the development of the tan it only had a slight fake tan smell, which is a winner & one of the main reasons I wanted to try it in the first place! 🙂

When I woke up the tan was quite noticeable, I am very fair & not used to any sort of tan. Anyway, I went into the bathroom to have a peak at my new tan, to my surprise it looked very natural & healthy. I was astounded by the beautiful, streak-free finish & guess what? No funky smell either. Yipeeee!!! Plus, it moisturises my skin PERFECTLY. It sinks into the skin quite quick, leaving your body feeling nourished all day!👍

ST Tropez has really got it down good with their Gradual Tan, I knew there was a reason why everyone loved this brand so much! :)❤

Have you tried this product or any other from this brand? If so, what did you think?

Lots of Love Natasha
