Italy was the first summer holiday I had been on in over a year. So I wanted to make sure my skin was in tip-top shape.
I wanted glowing holiday skin. I wanted to illuminate, radiate, and of course, be tanned.
To achieve this I used three products religiously throughout my holiday – Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil, Omorovicza Glam Glow and Tan-Luxe The Face.
This is what I loved about them.
Tan-Luxe The Face
Tan-Luxe The Face has been the best tanning product I’ve ever come across.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I love it and how easy it is to use.
Just add a couple of drops to your moisturiser, serum or face oil (I pop it in my moisturiser), mix it together and then apply to your face.
The mixture seeps instantly into your skin and you’re then able to apply your makeup, just as you would normally.
The Face leaves you with a natural-looking tan, which develops throughout the day.
It’s enriched with raspberry seed oil, vitamin E and aloe vera, so it not only gives your face a bronzed glow, it’s revitalising for your skin.
Omorovicza Glam Glow
The Omorovicza Glam Glow is a luxury self-tanning lotion for the face and body.
As I had applied Tan Luxe The Face on my face, I only needed to apply Glam Glow on my body.
The formula is wonderful. It’s just like a moisturiser, so it’s super easy to apply and seamlessly soaks into your skin.
A light tan develops in a few hours. As I wanted a deeper tan, I did apply a dark mouse tan from St Moritz a day before I went on holiday, and then used Glam Glow as gradual tanner/tanner top-up and applied it everyday.
The product didn’t only just provide a lovely natural tan, it also nourished and hydrated my skin thanks to the plum almond oil and apple pectin in the formula.
Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil
This is my new hero product.
Have you ever wondered how those models have such glowing skin in ads?
This has to be the answer!
The Tom Ford Shimmering Body Oil is a bottle of perfection. It not only looks gorgeous, with its gold sparkly formula flowing around inside the stunning bottle, it actually does its job – makes you shimmer!
I popped the oil on every day and evening and it gave me a illuminated glow, without being OTT.
The oil is lightweight and silky, so it’s applied to the skin with ease and doesn’t come off on your clothing.
To top it off, it has a fragrance of white florals and amber-sandalwood, which is light and fresh.
