Simply Sublime...here's hoping
Go me! I did it. I took the plunge and bought some self-tanner. It was a genuine breakthrough. No flashbacks, no heavy sweats, no panic attacks. A simple choice: L'Oreal Sublime and a straightfoward Superquinn transaction. Mind you, the selection was fairly basic comprising of gradual tanners like Dove and Johnsons (of which I've heard mixed reports), lots of L'Oreal, some Rimmel and a small section of those nasty inidvidual towlettes. The L'Oreal Sublime self-tanner seemed to have the least margin for error with a built in tint to avoid 'patchy' applications and some shimmer for a subtle glow. I was more impressed with the fact that for €14.99, it's suitable for both face and body; unlike other brands that make you buy two separate products (shady marketeering methinks). So far so L.A. I've yet to find a hint of orange or a nasty streak and very little of that dreaded 'biscuit' odour. Only two more days until I unveil my newly bronzed pins at the Taste of Dublin in the Iveagh Gardens. Here's hoping the weather keeps so I don't look like a plank freezing my butt off in my new above-the-knee wrap dress!
