I am so excited that summer is almost here but that means that I'll be hitting the beach so bronzed skin will be the priority on my summer beauty list. As I am never the one to shy away from fake tanning, I will be sharing my secrets to achieving beautiful natural looking tan at home and without needing to sunbake on the beach.

I have been a little late getting on the lip butter band wagon but I knew that I would eventually catch up and now I can see what all the fuss is about. When I fist saw these on the internet I thought that all the colours were to bright for me because I tend to wear neutral colours every day but I have been pleasantly surprised at how wearable they are.

As you guys know, I went to America a couple of months ago and since cosmetics (and everything else for that matter!) is super cheap over there, I decided to get a few more then I would have if I was paying Australian prices for them. Actually, I probably would have only bought one because they retail at $24.95 each in Australia and in America I got them for around $6.00 each - yea, big price difference.

Now that the weather is slowly starting to heat up again I have been getting more conscious about protecting my skin from the sun. I have forever been searching for a good quality sunscreen that will not make me feel like I have been dipped in oil so when I saw the Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh moisturizer at my local Woolworths, I thought that I would give it a try.

Earlier this year I decided to mix up my skin care regime and decided to try the Clinique 3 step skin care system for dry-combination skin. The three step system consists of a liquid facial soap, clarifying lotion (a toner) and the dramatically different moisturiser.

These products are the first 'high end' skin care products I have tried and I chose Clinique because of their reputation and because their products are demagogically tested. In all honesty, I have really enjoyed using these three products and have been pleasantly surprised with the results.

I am really excited about today's blog post because it is about one of the best products I have discovered on the market. As you guys know, I am always on the lookout for a good quality self tanner and now I think that I have finally found the perfect product.

Vani-T describes the Bronzing Custard as "a bronzing moisturiser with a unique blend of hydrating oils and anti-oxidants to improve the skins hydration, elasticity and tone, it has a hint of self-tanning agent to boost an existing tan or build a natural glow worthy of a red carpet appearance".
