It so hot in Greece these days, I can't believe it's only mid June! To tell the truth I'm not very comfortable in my bikini or shorts yet, I need some... confidence boosters. What I'm talking about? The little beauty products that promise to make me look slimmer, prettier and sexier :D
First thing is tanning. I have nothing against pale girls, I actually like them but for me, since I have dark brown hair and eyes, I believe that when I'm a little tan I'm prettier. Tan also hides the imperfections like cellulite. And since sunbathing is neither healthy nor an option for me now (final exams, yeah) I go self tan. I use this product, Oriflame Sol Golden Self Tan

I like that it's a spray. I don't like that it's a colourless spray so I can't see where I've applied it. I like that it dries fast so I can get dressed. The colour is nice too, it's neither orange nor greyish, it's very natural. But the smell isn't good, it's the typical "burnt cookies" smell. So, yes, it's not perfect but it does the job. I've read raving reviews about the St Tropez products, I'll try them one day!
And when I finally manage to go to the beach, I need a little something to make me look sexier in my bikini. One option is sunscreen oils but these products don't usually come with high SPF. And I don't like that much being oily. So I use this baby instead
When I used it for the first time I had no idea it was shimmery! I have to admit I was a little scared when I applied it :) But the shimmer is so pretty! No, it's not discoball-ish! Of course if you hate glitter you won't like this but if you like a little sparkle I think you'll enjoy it :D Important thing, it has SPF30 which is more than enough for me, for body sunscreen. It's smells nice too!
And what about afterwards? What about walking by the beach or meeting friends for frozen yogurt or beach parties? I have exactly what we need!

The Body Shop Honey Bronze shimmering dry oil. Aww, this product is in my WL since the moment I saw it last year! But then it was out of stock all the time and this year I still haven't buy it! Why? I was a little afraid the shimmer and colour would be too obvious, too fake. But when I went to the Body Shop event I tried it and the shimmer is not that visible. So I have to have it, end of story! I'm wondering how it'll look on hair... It's a dry oil so it can be used on hair too, it won't make them oily ;)
So, these were mine, I can't wait to hear about yours! Every girl is pretty on her own but a little more confidence does no harm, right? What are the products that give you a little confidence boost? Anything I should definitely try?
P.S. Don't forget it's Father's Day today! Hug you Dad and tell him you love him!
