A little poolside beauty ain’t never hurt anybody right?..

Now I don’t mean a full face of makeup, a face mask and a pedicure, I’m talking tanning products, sun protection and a little skin hydration. Most women have sun lotion and maybe some tanning oil, but of course, in the world of being a beauty junkie, I have an entire kit. Who’s with me? I can’t be the only one lol.

So Egypt is done and dusted and its time to share with you my pool side beauty.

For everyone panicking right now lol, I did protect my skin from the sun, I just forgot to photograph it lol. I used a mixture of Nivea SPF 50 and Hawaiian Tropic SPF50. I apply my lotion as soon as I wake up so by the time I actually get outside, the product is fully protecting me and its sunken in. Both of these products smell amazing and apply evenly. I like my suncream to be super thick but also to blend well. Egypt was 45degrees+ everyday so I needed a high factor. These protected me so much that I didn’t burn at all & I still came home with the most glorious tan.

Fake Bake Skin Smoothie Dry Oil Spray

Im definitely a sun worshipper and I go on holiday for the sole purpose of getting a tan. Whilst browsing on Feel Unique I stumbled across this and it caught my eye. It claims to lock in a deep tan whilst hydrating your skin. It also claims to maximise the length of your tan too so of course, I just had to have it! Are you reading this thinking ‘please tell me it works’ lol? Well, it freaking does. I am SO impressed with this. My tan is even and deep. Im actually the darkest I have ever been at the moment. This also smells pretty good and for some reason comes out really cool? An added bonus for when your skin is cooking in the sunshine. I have a tiny bit left so I am repurchasing for my next trip. I can’t praise this enough. 

Malibu SPF6 Bronzing Tanning Oil

In between applying sun lotion throughout the day, I was applying this. I had never used it before, but after smelling it in Boots it was straight in my basket. That coconut scent is what dreams are made of I am telling you. This is specific for people who tan easily and don’t usually burn so perfect for me. Im pretty sure that using this with the Fake Bake Skin Smoothie Dry Oil Spray is the reason my tan is so kick ass. It feels super luxurious on the skin and after it sinks in it leaves your skin feeling and looking supple. I found this oil made my tan more bronzy than usual. I absolutely LOVE it.

Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray*

I was obsessed with this before I even hopped of the plane. Its basically MAC Fix+ but with a bit more sass. The sunshine can make our skin feel dehydrated and look thirsty so feeding it with moisture is the way to go. Im not sure what it is about this that I love, but it just makes my life better lol. Whenever I had a glass of water, I also sprayed this. It helped my skin to stay hydrated & gave it some relief. My skin just felt amazing and I’ve been using it everyday since. Every beauty junkie needs this!

Radical SPF30 Skin Perfecting Screen*

For face protection during the hottest time of day I used this after my moisturiser. Its smooth and not too thick which I love. I find sun protectant can often clog the pores around my nose but this doesn’t. It enhances the skin without leaving behind any shine or oiliness. It takes a while to rub in and sink in but its the best sunscreen for the face I have ever used. Its pricy but worth it. You don’t need a lot either so it lasts a pretty longtime. I have over half yet to use!

Clinique SPF20 Superdefense Moisturiser*

For my daily moisturiser I opted for this. I’ve been using it for maybe about a year now and its up there with my favourites. I usually use it at night but its great for protection on holiday. It smells bloody amazing, its thick, super hydrating and leaves the skin ridiculously smooth. This is a moisturiser for all year round so if you’re interested, make that purchase. Its a great investment.

So thats the low down on my pool side beauty. I hope it answered some of your questions on how I got so tanned (remember I am mixed race so its easy for me to go dark lol). Are you off on holiday soon? If so, where? Take me with you lol.

    I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of, especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.
    When I asked him why he kept sleeping with me even though he was in a relationship, his response was because I wanted it, and he wants me to be happy. But obviously what would make me happy would be to have him all to myself. That was when i read about Dr alexzander on how he help people in saving their relationship and i was really desperate for his help. There were things in our relationship that were tough. We traveled for 4 months right in the beginning, and it was hard due to different expectations. When we returned our living situation was unstable which caused a lot of stress on my end. And when I ask why he didn’t give me a chance to make things better he said he gave me tons of chances. Oh, and he compared our relationship with his past. He says that things were great, and then they went bad really fast, and that why his back with is Ex. Because it at least took them years for things to get that bad. So i was very sad and disappointing and decided to contact this spell caster for help with tears running out of my eyes and Dr alexzander promised to make things right in my relationship and also assured me that my boyfriend is going to come back to me within 78hrs. At first i was shock and didn't believe him because i thought it was impossible to do. But i gave it a try and trusted him. Dr alexzander asked for my details and his, then guarantee me of his return. Truly my ex lover started calling me and also begging me to forgive him and that's his willing to give us a second chance, then promised me never to love any other woman apart from me. it all seem like a miracle to me till now. Dr alexzander. Words can't express how i feel right now. it been 2 month now since you caste that love spell for me and nothing have gone bad between us. his now caring more than ever and also the loving kind of Man i have ever wanted for myself in life. I thank you Dr alexzander for saving my relationship. Indeed you are the best. I want to use this media to share my testimony for the whole world to see and know that there is still hope in your broken relationship, No matter how bad it seems don't give up hope and also contact this man who saved my own. you can reach him through his website address http://alexzanderhightemple-com.webs.com or contact him direct with his email address alexzanderhightemple@gmail.com. I thank you Dr alexzander for helping me and i will always share my testimony in every social media or place i may go to.
