Superdrug Orange and Satsuma and Strawberry and Raspberry Shower Gels

Another two products that I have been loving lately are two gorgeous shower gels from Superdrug. There are very few Superdrugs in Ireland. However, I'm lucky enough to live very close to one. I have been trying to save money lately and these shower gels caught my eye as they were 2 for €1.90. For less than €2 for the pair I decided sure there was no harm giving them a try. 

For the price I was delighted with both products. Both are made from natural fruit extracts, have skin conditioners, PH balanced and  are soap free. Many readers will be delighted to hear that they are cruelty free as Superdrug is against animal testing. 

Both shower gels smells delicious. The Orange and Satsuma in particular. It reminds me of a shower gel I used to get in sets at Christmas time from The Body Shop. If you live near a Superdrug I would definitely recommend you keep an eye out for these cheap but surprisingly delightful products!

Penneys / Primark Fake Nails

Lately I have been really impressed with Penneys / Primarks false nails. For the brilliant bargain price of €1.50 Penneys have really lovely designs. My favourite so far is the blue with white clouds in the picture above. My nails got a lot of compliments when I wore them. I didn't trust the glue (sorry Penneys) so bought Royal nail glue for €2.99 in the cosmetics shop in The Ilac Centre. This glue is amazing and the nails don't budge. 

As I have not tested the Primark glue I can't comment on if it is good or not but the nails themselves are great for the price. Each box contains 24 nails so there is a size that will fit everyone. I was so impressed with the nails I picked up two more boxes today. I was only in a small Penneys so they did not have a big selection but I was still able to find some nice designs.

I only realised when I opened the packet for the photo there is a cute cupcake design inside that you can't see when you buy them. When I got to the till I found out they had gone down to 50 cent, so if you like the look of these nails get to Penneys fast.

I love the cupcake!

I also picked up a very light pink with a cute bow on the top. 

Have you tried Penneys fake nails?

Milk Bottle to Tan the SAFE Way!

The Irish are known for their pale skin. My skin goes beyond the usually stereotypical image and is beyond pale. I'm very worried about damaging it so I always use high protection sun cream and would never dream of going to a tanning bed shop. I usually embrace my paleness and have rarely worn fake tan. I have tried gradual tans in the past but they always turned out dreadful. 

About a week ago in Ireland we got over a week of AMAZING weather. (Very unusual for Ireland!) Like usual I covered up in high protection sun cream so didn't get much of a colour. I'd rather be pale than damage my skin. However, I did begin to get a bit jealous because everyone had amazing tans! Strangely enough I then got an email asking if I wanted to try out Dove Summer Glow. Perfect timing.

I used gradual tans in the past and found them terrible. Very streaky and very fake looking. However, I was so impressed by the Dove version. I tried Fair to Medium skin and it suits my skin perfectly. No streaks and after two applications I have a gorgeous natural glow. Very very impressed! It doesn't smell on application but there is a very slight fake tan smell after. However, I was so pleased with the results this would not bother me at all.

Overall really really impressed, easy to apply and a gorgeous natural colour. Well done Dove!
