Review: Le Tan Uber Dark with Marula Oil

I don't do many reviews on self tanners because I'm allergic to most that I've tried. I normally get a really annoying rash that lasts 2-4 days only on certain areas of my body - inner thighs and arms. 

There are a few gradual tanners that I don't really react much to, but the colour pay off is nothing to write home about. 

My legs also get super itchy in winter if I don't slather on moisturiser religiously. So I wondered is there a link to dry skin and self-tanners (i.e. do self tanners dry out your skin?). After doing a bit of research, it seems like DHA commonly found in self tanners can be dehydrating.

When Le Tan released their new Uber Dark range, I thought I'd give the Marula Oil version a go, as it's meant to be more hydrating than the other ones in the Uber Dark range.

Review: Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair 1%

The Dermalogica Overnight Retinol Repair 1% is a professional strength retinol treatment that is new addition to Dermalogica's AGE smart range. 

It is a customisable formula, as you can dial down the concentration with the use of the buffer cream, which is included in the box. It claims to reduce the appearance of skin ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and combat free radical damage.

Review: The Ordinary Serum Foundation

I have finally gotten my hands on The Ordinary Serum Foundation and thought I'd do a quick review and comparison with the Coverage Foundation.
