Omorovicza Glam Glow Self Tanner Review

With its rich, creamy gel-like consistency and off-white colour, Omorovicza’s Glam Glow Self Tanner looks more like a heavy night cream than a self tan, but looks are deceiving. Smother your skin in this fake tan before bed and you wake up with gorgeous sun kissed skin, especially on your face and neck area. Like most sunless tans, the more you apply the darker you go, but luckily the formula doesn’t rub off onto your sheets.
Be warned though, exfoliating is absolutely essential before applying this self-tan as otherwise it can go patchy and give you an uneven finish.
Like all of Omorovicza’s other products, Glam Glow does include the brands famous patented mineral delivery system, Mineral Cosmetology, to help firm and de-age skin. It is also fragranced with citrusy lemon and tangerine to disguise the telltale fake tan smell, although this does make an appearance as the tan develops unfortunately.  
Omorovicza’s Glam Glow Self Tanner is £46 and available from Omorovicza.com.
Rating: 8/10 – The perfect fake tan for your face, but it does have the traditional fake tan smell as it develops.

This Works Perfect Legs Gradual Tan Review

Easy, instant and most importantly even, This Works Perfect Legs Gradual Tan is one stop shop for natural-looking tanned legs in a matter of days. With a loose, tinted lotion you can use the self-tan like you would a body moisturiser and the colour is instant making it simple to spot where you need to apply more.

While the instructions suggest using the self-tan three days in a row this will make it much harder to remove eventually, so try just twice a week. The colour is strong enough to give you a gorgeous golden glow without needing to apply it too often.

Despite the name you can use this product on the rest of your body too!

This Works Perfect Legs Gradual Tan is £38 and is available from Thisworks.com.

Rating: 9/10 – Easy to use and results driven, this is the perfect self-tan for even the most clueless sunless tanners.

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss Review

The name ‘lip gloss’ is almost deceiving as Benefit’s new lip product has a sticky-free formula that feels more like a balm. Gone are the days of a mouthful of hair on a windy day, instead Benefit has created a truly intriguing lip product with the soft texture and shimmery finish.

With nourishing ingredients such as shea butter, the Ultra Plush Lip Gloss’ won’t leave your lips feeling dry either.

There’s more to the lip gloss than just a good formula though. Each gloss is paired with one of Benefit’s best selling powders including bronzed Hoola and pretty Dandelion. For a pop of colour to compliment your summer tan opt for Coralista!

Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss is £14.50 and will be available from Benefitcosmetics.co.uk from July.

Rating: 10/10 – Teaming a balm with a gloss is genius and there’s a shade to suit everyone.

Liz Earle Healthy Glow Cream Blush Review

Following on from the successful launch of the tinted moisturiser last year, Liz Earle has created a whole make-up range. In keeping with the brand's style, the collection is straight-forward, easy to use and most products are multi-taskers. 

The Healthy Glow Cream Blush does exactly what it says on the box. With a soft texture you can apply with your fingers or a brush directly onto the apples of your cheeks and then blend down your cheekbones for a more defined finish.

For a fresh country-walk glow opt for the ‘Peony’ shade. While it might look bright in the compact, it is easy to blend and will give your cheeks a gorgeous rosy touch. The Cream Blush can also be used on lips too to complete your look.

Liz Earle’s Healthy Glow Blush is £16.50 and available from Lizearle.com.

Rating: 9/10 – Quick and easy to use – a great handbag beauty buy.
