“ Brand: Lancome / Type: Skin Care / What it does: Protects „
Having very pale skin the sun and I dont get on, i tend to end up looking like a beetroot if I dont use a high factor sun lotion! For my last holiday I decided that I'd fake a healthy glow, after trawling around all the beauty counters in my local department store I decided to give Esprit de Soliel by Lancome a go. The beauty consultant assured me that this product would definetly give me a natural looking tan, so I part company with my dosh and took the treasured tube home! On the day of my holiday, I applied the cream following the instructions to the letter, well I didnt want any mishaps now did I? The lotion takes about 4 hours to develope so I applied it prior to leaving home, I couldnt wait to see my healthy, natural looking tan! Some hours later the old man started to snigger and then laugh hysterically! A quick trip to the toilet confirmed my worst nightmare - I looked like a tangerine!! My face was bright orange! No amount of disguising it with a pale foundation helped the orange just glowed straight throw! I spent most of the holiday applying facial scrub, to no avail I just ended up with a sore orange face! You should see the holiday snaps - he gets them out every now and then to show people....... If you have got pale skin I'd definetly say steer clear of this stuff , it was an expensive mistake for me!!
