Hi, Here's my post on the best of this weeks beauty news.
It's actually the only post I've managed to get done this week because of half term. xx

I love the sound of the Clarins drops, will def try them! Did you get your Josh Wood hair thingy Alex? I was a bit disappointed with mine but on reflection I think I might need to perfect my technique!

Alex, psst, it's me - you were at my place during the week....

I saw your pin - these products look nice, have you used their predecessors? I'm a big tightwad w beauty, but should probably start looking at something more luxe than Maybelline!

AnnabelleDarling - Yes, the Clarins drops are such a good idea. I'd love to look less pasty but self tanning one's face can be so hit or miss. I'd been toying with the idea of getting the James Reed Overnight Face Mask but I'm now going to wait for the Clarins one. Love that you easily decide how light or dark you want to go.
I've used the Josh Wood thing on wet hair then set it with a hair dryer and actually thought it was quite good. It tinted the grey rather than gave the hair a solid colour but I still think it looked better for having used it. I haven't tried it on dry hair yet. I used the Dark Brown one.
Which colour did you use? Did the colour not take? I'm sure it was nothing to do with you're technique!

Bunnymother - That's so funny that you've found me on here.

Don't knock Maybelline! I use loads of their stuff. Generally, I think make up addicts like myself don't discriminate between drugstore and premium brands. We just love and want it all!

Love this coat. I'm getting into the cream/beige look at the mo.

Looking forward to kid-free coffee this week. xx

You are right Alex, it is much better on wet hair smile I had used it on dry and found it messy but the results on wet hair are much better <swish swish>
