Review: Iconic Bronze Tan

Yet another beautiful product which I received in the goodie bag from The Goss Media Party. I was given the Iconic Bronze Medium shade. It was love at first application!

Iconic Bronze is a new Irish tanning brand. I love trying out new tanning products and I could not wait to give this a go.

It has a gorgeous moisturising feel to it but dries into the skin quickly and evenly. The colour is beautiful, it left a dark almond colour on my skin. I have quite dry skin so I often have problems applying tan evenly but this tan worked miracles on my skin, it both moisturisies and tans. It has nourishing enriched ingredients such as Sunflower oil and omega 6 and 9, which leaves the skin feeling smooth and supple.

Another thing I love about this tan is its staying power. Often when I use other tanning products a lot of the colour is lost the next morning when I shower, this did not happen with this tan. I stayed a beautiful dark shade after my shower and I had a gorgeous bronzed glow for 4 to 5 days before the tan began fading gradually and evenly.

I was also given the Iconic Bronze tanning mitt to try out. This is by far the best tanning mitt I have every used. It is amazingly soft, makes application a doddle and is also double sided. The mitt was slightly small for my fiancĂ©'s hand, something to note if you're getting the man in your life to tan your back! The mitt is not suitable for large hands! Lol! 

Iconic Bronze is now available at Penney's. It retails for €12, the mitt is €8. Both products are well worth the price. They are both amazing products.

I'm off to sunny Spain on Sunday and I have already poured what I have left of this tan into a travel sized bottle to take away with me.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend,

Review: Miracle Sculpting Sponge

Last week I attended the Goss Media 3rd Birthday Party. We received a fantastic goodie bag as we left the party. This Sponge from Real Techniques was one of the products from the bag.

I love my Real Techniques brushes, I use my Expert Face Brush every day to apply my foundation. I don't usually use a blender sponge but this one looked so interesting I wanted to give it a go. The Sponge has two flat sides, one small side for precision highlighting and one large side for controlled contouring.

I wet the sponge using water, but I've also heard wetting it with Fix Plus is great for even application and staying power.  I used my P.S. Foundation Contour Sticks to highlight and contour. I found the sponge quite easy to use, I really like how it has two sides, so it was easy to keep the shades separate. The sponge blended the product in beautifully and left my skin looking contoured with a fresh dewy glow.

I think I will have to add it to the list of beauty products I will be taking on holidays with me. I am off to sunny Spain in 8 days, I cannot wait! I think this sponge would work great with the Cocoa Brown Goddess highlight oil, to create that fresh dewy summer glow.
