Can’t Live Without – St Tropez Luxe Dry Oil

Posted on Updated on

It’s an essential in my own makeup bag! 

I’m an addict to any makeup product that gives me a fabulous colour and a healthy glow without the dangers of sun exposure!  And I love this one – St Tropez Luxe Dry Oil
“Our most luxurious tan yet for the ultimate natural-looking, luminous glow that lasts for days. This Brazilian-inspired indulgent dry oil is suitable for all skin tones with a quick-drying formula that is clinically proven to moisturise for up to 7 days.”

St Tropez Luxe Dry OilI use this fake tanning dry oil when I want an extra bit of colour and a lovely shimmery finish – it contains tiny golden particles that give you a fabulous sheen and, even better, it doesn’t smell of fake tan!

Use a gloves or a mitt and gently blend into dry skin, then wait til it’s dry before getting dressed – and wait at least 4 hours before getting wet!

Revolutionary Makeup Remover!

Glov main

I was always going to be intrigued hearing about a makeup remover accessory that works with JUST WATER! 

Walking past the Glov stand at BeautyWorld Middle East in Dubai in May, my interest was instant so I had to stop and see this for myself.  I’ve got to be honest, I didn’t really think it would work that well, doubting that it could even remove lipstick and waterproof mascara, with just water and a cloth.

I watched the girl demo how the makeup remover works.  She applied eye shadow, black mascara and lipstick to the back of her hand, and using a ‘cloth’ wetted with only water, she gently removed the lot without any scrubbing or residue!

This solution is fabulous!  It’s on my list of brilliant products, in my own travel bag and bathroom, and I’ve already told a number of people about it, who’ve been shopping on the website to buy their own Glov.  I can absolutely recommend this.

So what is it and how does it work?Glov fibres
Glov Hydro Demaquillage, using its full name, has been developed by Phenicoptere – a leading innovative company in the global cosmetics industry.  And they’ve won awards for this product too – I get why!

The fibres that make up the Glov products are 100 times thinner than a human hair, and 30 times thinner than a cotton pad.  Each fibre is star shaped, rather than the cylindrical shape of a normal fibre, so they work as a magnet attracting the dirt and makeup from your skin, activated by water!  That’s the technical part.

GlovEach Glov lasts about three months, if you’re using it daily – and I am now.

I am a complete convert to this 100% hypoallergenic, eco friendly product, that’s so gentle on my skin.

My face is clean, and not irritated; even waterproof eyeliner and mascara comes off and it’s significantly reduced the contents of my travel bag.  I just need the travel size Glov – forgetting all the lotions and cleansers.

Once you’ve used Glov, and you can use it with warm or cold water, you just wash it with soap and rinse it clean under the tap.  Then hang it up and leave it to dry.  It really is as simple as that.Glov products

There are two options to choose from, a travel size mitt and a larger size cloth.  All easy to find and buy direct from their website –

This product gets the ‘Stamp of Approval’ from me and I’ll be buying more as I need to.
