Tantruth Rapid Tan

This fast drying tan gives immediate results which continues to develop in 4-6 hours and also contains jojoba seed oil which stops blocked pores and reduces oiliness which can result from self tanning.
Always apply tan in natural light so you can see the colour clearly. After exfoliating I poured a fairly small amount of the liquid onto the mitt provided and applied it quickly in circular motions to prevent streaking. It did dry almost straight away and wasn't too streaky but as I am quite pale I found the colour was way too dark for me. It is also quite expensive but if you shop around you should be able to find it cheaper.
I think I will test the product on a friend that regularly uses fake tan and see what she thinks!

Priced at £20.59 for 200ml

Evolution Festival

Yesterday was day one of the Evolution Festival in Newcastle. I went for The Kills and headliners Iggy and the Stooges but the rest of the line up was pretty awful. I waited at the main stage from about 12.30pm with the most annoying crowd in the world (who were waiting for Two Door Cinema Club) to be at the front for Iggy. The Kills were amazing but Alison Mosshart looked extremely pissed off as I was literally the only person singing along, all the children around me were just stood chatting amongst themselves. Thankfully most of them left after Two Door Cinema Club.
When Iggy bounded onto the stage, arms flailing about the crowd definately livened up! The Stooges played for over an hour, songs included No Fun, Raw Power and I Wanna Be Your Dog. It was a crazy gig, my sister lost a shoe, I was on the floor and trampled all over, crowdsurfed three times and my dad managed to fall under the stage haha! Quite eventful! Although I do not recommend this festival as it was a very young audience.

WAHL 3 in 1 Hot Air Styler

Designed for travelling and city living the 3 in 1 Hot Air Styler has two heat settings, two speed settings and comes with three different styling nozzles, meaning you can dry, straighten and curl hair.
I found it's great for drying hair quickly and I didn't need to use straighteners after drying it straight. It was good for adding volume and soft waves but harder to create curls.
Overall it definately saves time if you want to dry and straighten or add volume to your hair and it is compact.

Priced at £24.99
