Okay, so if you have ever talked to me about skincare, I have probably recommended Marie to you a bazillion times. I have never had someone transform my skin like she did.
If you haven't seen my posts about my struggles with acne, it was the most annoying, pestering thing ever. I was on accutane growing up and then had adult acne on my neck that wouldn't go away for 5 years! Nothing helped. I went to the dermatologist more times than I can count and tried countless topical gels and oral pills to try and help control it. I finally made an appointment with Marie, and my neck is completely clear and has been for the past 7 months! Let me tell you, she works miracles and is so knowledgeable about everything!

I don't get spray tans too often, but if I have a big event then they are totally worth it. I contacted The Tan Banana (ps how cute and memorable is that name??) to do spray tans for my What Matters fashion show. It was by far the best spray tan I have ever had (no this is not sponsored!) It even lasted like a 1 1/2 - 2 weeks too and I didn't feel dirty!
They have locations in both San Diego and Arizona!
Okay, let me just start by saying that I don't even like tanning lotions usually. They are streaky, make you look dirty, come off if you sweat (which is inevitable in az by the way) get all over your clothes, smell bad, and usually have an orange base. In all my years I spent trying out different tanning lotions, I never found one that I liked enough to consistently use. I also get a lot of companies that ask me to try things and blog about them, and rarely do I have one that I actually recommend people to buy, and they definitely wouldn't make beyond a post on to my recommendations page. Also, I am not a big facebook user, but I saw someone asking for the best tanning lotion, and I even recommended it on there haha. Which I would never do if I didn't feel like a product worked.
So here I am recommending everyone who reads my blog to try this tanning lotion. Immediately. Let me first go over the positives : it has a brown tone, not orange. I get told i'm really tan allll the time now- which i haven't even really been out in the sun this summer. I can wear white and not worry about it getting all over my clothes. NO STREAKS. It actually lasts, and by that I mean your tan actually lasts plus the bottles actually lasts for a while. I can put it on once a week and it keeps me tan. It smells good. You can get 20% off of your first order.
If you were to get any of the products these are my recommendations :
1. The applicator mitt FOR SURE. It helps keep it even.
2. Self-Tan Souffle with Bronzer
3. Gradual Tanning Body Butter Lotion
Also* For my best results, I like to use the gradual tanner after I get out of the shower and then put the souffle on right after it dries.
Laser is one of those things that you don't realize you need in your life. But seriously, if you go once, you'll be hooked.
I have the most sensitive skin in the whole entire world. I also have naturally realllly dark hair, so even when I shave, you can see my pores. From the moment I started shaving my legs, I got rashes and razor burn, so I have always hated shaving. Also, when you have sensitive skin, you can't just use any razor and they can actually get pretty expensive!
Basically, what I am trying to say is - if you want your life to be a bazillion times easier - get laser hair removal!
I go to Courtney over at Smoother You Laser ( I linked her page!) She makes you feel comfortable, and it is quick, and not very painful!
