Cocoa Brown Night & Day Tan Review

Hello Lovelies!

This review has been long overdue but alas here it is!
I have tried the Cocoa Brown Night & Day tan a few times now and am very impressed.

The thing with this new tan in the Cocoa Bro
wn range is that it is an instant tan that gives you a nice dark colour within minutes then in the morning when you have your shower it reveals a light natural tan underneath.

In my review of the one hour tan(which can be read here) I inserted pictures of before and after unfortunately I don't have any to show you this time as just like the product is intended I used the tan last minute with no time to spare!
I love love love this as an instant tan, I really like being quite dark on nights out and when applied generously that is exactly what I was, lovely and tan! On this particular occasion I was off to Kerry the next day for a few days and had a lovely glow to sport for the few days, it looked natural and was just what you would want for during the day.

The main reason I enjoy the product so much is that it is true to what is says it will do. There is nothing more annoying then when a product doesn't do what it's supposed to do and this just has not been the case with my experiences with cocoa brown products. It is not orange like most fake tans are, it doesn't smell, it's natural, if looked after correctly it lasts the 5 days and fades really well. I'm excited to see what cocoa brown has planned next!

My top tips when using Night & Day Tan:
-Have a shower before applying to remove any deoderant, perfumes, lotions & potions or you will be green
-Moisturise twice daily after applying to make the tan last but also fade into nothing
-Start exfoliating on day 3 to again help the tan fade into nothing so it's not blotchy and obvious
-Get out your short shorts and rock the tan!

Until Next Time,

I got a job!

Hello my lovelies!

I know it's been what seems like forever but I hate when boggers/youtubers apologise for their absense so that is not what I'm doing.

I have a few reasons but honesly one of the is that I haven't felt that inspired to write about anything beauty related. Which is why I hope you don't mind but I think I'm going to start posting more 'lifestyle' type posts with a few reviews, ootd's and that sort of thing thrown in here and there.

For my first post 'lifestyle' post I want to share something that has happened that is huge to me.

I got a job!
I have never had a 'real' job before would you believe? I have been babysitting and child minding since I was probably a child myself but I've never had a job that is official so it's all very grown up of me!
I finished college in May and was kinda freaking out, what next? was all I could ask myself.
I decided I would give myself till after my holidays to start looking for a job or to decide what I wanted to do. Well the week before I went away I had a surge of enthusiasm and started applying for jobs. I went around Dundrum handing in CV's and applied to about a gazillion online(more like 20 ish) I had two interviews before my holiday and one after. I was offered one on the spot but the work was really casual and they were hinting that I should cancel my holiday that I was going on in 3 days time(not a chance!).
Well with 4 trial days under my belt I was offered a job in the most amazing salon, the girls who I work with are so unbelievably nice and are helping me so much adjust into the way the salon works and teaching my loads so I am so grateful for that.
I'm always tired after work but I'm always looking forward to going in so I think it balances out in the end.

That's all I really wanted to share for today but I have review coming up and will try and do one on my holiday if I can get anything together as it was a crazy mash of fun!

Until next time,
