Dove Derma Spa

The last time I used self-tanner was at least 10 years ago and it wasn't a great experience. So when I was bombarded with Dove Derma Spa summer revived's ads, I did not really feel tempted to buy it. 
On top of that, summer came really slow these year. We had a few wonderfully sunny days back in April but then it went back to 12-14 grades  for weeks and weeks. So when the weather forecast promised 28 degrees all of a sudden and I started looking for my shorts, I immediately realized that my legs were hlariously white. So the same night I grabbed this creme at the store.
And I never regretted doing so ever since. 

My worst fear was that it would not give the same tone to all my body. I feared that the teint would be dark at one pot and really light at other spots.  The first morning after using it I was scared to look in the mirror. But when I finally did it, I  was really happy. The teint looked natural and it wasn't to dark. 
My second fear was that it would start fading away in visible spots. But I was proved wrong again. All in all, I am really glad I put this product in my basket.

How about you? Do you ever use self-tanner? What is your fav product?

Hello Hydration

To be honest, I have neglected my hair lately.So it needed urgent help. 
I heard  and read good things about  the Inecto Naturals hello hydration coconut hair treatment so I decided to give it a try. 

First of all, I love the odour. And the  organic coconut oil  did the best with my hair. When I first put it on, I thought it will make my hair 'heavy' but when I washed it away, I immediately felt that it won't be the case.
The hair ends looked much more beautiful and healthy even after one treatment. My hair feels soft and is well- managable. The only thing that did not meet my expectations  was the shine. I expected that it would give my hair more shine. Maybe next time I will try their hair oil which promises lovely shine.

And top all that the box says: "We beleive in naturals. We have no unnecessary nasties. We are not tested on animals. We are vegan friendly." Pempering for the heart.
