This for me has to be the best beauty oil I have used so far, it is non-comedogenic oil, so doesn’t block pores and dissolves into the skin rather than sitting on the surface. The oil has been traditionally used as a treatment for dry/wrinkled skin, scars and for hair. Containing Omega fatty acids and vitamin E, it has a multi-purpose use; some of the best uses I have found are;
Night Oil: This for me has become a staple in my night time facial routine, I apply a few drops to my face before applying my night moisturising cream, the first time I did this, the next morning I noticed a great difference, my face appeared smother, hydrated and radiant looking.

Used with Foundation: Adding a few drops to your foundation can make blending your foundation into your skin easier, it creates a real flawless natural dewy looking coverage. Providing hydration to the skin all day, which is great for the winter season as, it protects the skin from drying out in the cold weather!

Hair: I have colour treated, dry, frizzy course hair and use a lot of heated appliances to get it in a reasonable state before walking out the door.  Applying a few drops to my conditioner gives it that extra moisture it needs to look smoother, glossy and improve its manageability.  After shampooing, squeeze out excess water then apply conditioner followed by a few drops of the oil.  I use approx. 6- 8 drops then wrap in a hot towel or wrap in cling film to retain the moisture, and leave for around 10 minutes.  I have found this has the same effect as a salon treatment, but even better as it does not have the big bill at end!!
Giving hands some moisture therapy: By adding a few drops to a generous dose of hand cream and then wearing moisturising hand gloves overnight, this leaves my hands looking noticeably softer, smoother and less wrinkly the next morning.

This tip is great for evening out skin tone and creating a glowing, flawless base before applying your make-up in the morning. As the spray tan is mixed with your moisturiser by blending into the face with a foundation brush the spray tan is slightly diluted.  This creates a flawless natural glow, rather than a full on fake tanned face.  You should also find you do not have to wear as much make-up as usual!!

You will need;

  • -       Ambre Solaire Facial Tanning Spray (light) – this creates a subtle glow, avoiding any harsh orange complexion.
  • -         Foundation brush (I used a Real Techniques Expert face brush)
  •  - Hairdryer

Step 1: Apply your regular night time moisturiser, but try not to over-saturate.
Step 2: Spray your entire face and neck with tanning spray.
Step 3: Take your foundation brush and blend in circular motion over your face and neck, just like you would do your foundation.
Step 4: Dry for a few seconds with a hairdryer, approximately arms length away from your face (warm heat, not hot!)
Step 5: Sleep
Step 6: Wake up to a flawless, dewy glow!!
