TANchella‏ with Karora

Yesterday I was delighted to be invited to the TANchella rooftop party event for Karora's new Tan- Karora Ultra Dark Bronzing Mousse. The party was held on the rooftop of the Morgan Hotel in Temple Bar. I attended the event with my fellow blogger sister Sarah. We had a fantastic evening.

The event was very well organised and had plenty of activities, there was a barman at the door making delicious cocktails, a Tarot Card Reader, a Cartoonist and even a Henna Tattooist. I have attached some pictures of the amazing venue and setup. The party was Festival themed, I rooted out some of my festival clothes from Longitude last year. I love wearing headbands, they are the perfect accessory for the festival season. Everyone looked fantastic. I got to meet some other fellow bloggers and The Karora team who were all lovely ladies.

The party was held to launch Karora's new tanning product, Karora Ultra Dark Bronzing Mousse. This new tan is an extra dark tan which brings the much sought after deep LA glow to Irish skin. It is moisture-injecting with indrediants such as Green Tea, Aloe and Acai Berry. It delivers a deep glow with true staying power that fades incredibly evenly, perfect for the summer's festival season. I received a promotional bottle of this new tan at the event, I cannot wait to apply it this weekend and see the results!

Thank you so much to the Karora team, we had an amazing evening.

Karora Ultra Dark Bronzing MousseKarora retails for RRP €29.99 (150ml).

New NIVEA In-Shower Q10 Firming Body Moisturiser

I'm sure like myself daily moisturising seems like a task and a half. I can say I am definitely guilty of frequently leaving this step out of my beauty routine. Last year Nivea launched a new product, New NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser, I could not wait to give it a go, anything to speed up the process sounded good to me. I tried this product and found it worked very well. After showering my skin immediately felt soft and moisturised no drying time, no stickiness, I was thrilled with the results.

This year NIVEA have launched a new product, *New NIVEA In-Shower Q10 Firming Body Moisturiser. This product claims to moisturise your skin during your shower routine but it also firms the skin. The product contains Coenzyme Q10 and Q10 massage beads. Q10 penetrates deep into the skin, leaving it feeling firm and mosturised. In-Shower Q10 Firming Body Moisuriser also helps to replenish Q10 levels naturally found in the skin, therefore it supports surface skin cell renewal and improves skins appearance.

As I am a huge fan of the first In-Shower Body moisturising product I could not wait to give this product a try. I can say it did not let me down, it is a beautiful product. At first it felt a bit strange to be apply moisteriser while in the shower but I have to say this product works very well. It has a fresh scent, not the usual Nivea fragrance but it still a beautiful scent. The product contains beads which blend with the cream and leave your skin feeling incredibly moisturised. My skin also felt slightly tighter after use, especially on my hip and thigh areas. I cant give a great review of the firming aspect as I have only been using the product for a few days.

I would recommend this product to anyone who, like myself, finds the daily moisturising routine a struggle.

Has anyone else tried this product?

NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser Firming 24h + Care Q10 Plus is available nationwide from April 2015. For more information visit the Nivea Facebook Page here, or the Nivea website here.

More Ebay Brushes (Sigma Dupes)

I know I know as if I needed more makeup brushes, but I came across these while I was browsing and I just had to have them. I love getting new makeup brushes, everyone knows what a pain it is to clean all your brushes so getting inexpensive fresh new brushes on eBay is the way to go, for me anyway!

These brushes come in a set of 15 brushes. They have a black handle and gorgeous dark rose gold colour ferrules. The price for the set is €5, what a bargain, I almost bought myself a second set, but I thought I should wait and see what the quality was like. So far I am pretty impressed with these brushes, I especially love the angled eyebrow brush and the Mascara brush. The bristles are a made of goat hair and synthetic fibers, they are all amazingly soft and very dense, I have not noticed any shedding of any of the brushes. I'm not sure how cleaning them will go, hopefully they wont fall apart, it would break my rose gold heart!

The set includes-
1 x Angled Eyebrow brush
1 x Mascara Brush
1 x Double Ended Angled & Flat Shader Brush
1 x Double Ended Sponge & Flat Shader Brush
1 x Double Ended Lip & Flat Shader Brush
1 x Lip Brush
1 x Sponge Brush
1 x Small Oval Smudger Brush
1 x Medium Oval Smudger Brush
2 x Small Flat Shader Brushes
2 x Medium Flat Shader Brushes
1 x Large Flat Shader Brush
1 x Flat Top Brush

I also repurchased this 15 piece Brush set which is an exact Dupe for The Sigma Premium Professional Kit. The price for this set is €17, compared to €224 for the Sigma set. Link for seller here.
