So what’s the verdict on these summer beauty essentials? Check out their reviews below…
“The packaging is simple but effective, easy to store, easy to clean, and easy to squeeze every last drop of the product out! I’ve used this both on damp hair and dry hair and have had fantastic effects every time.” – Dimmity
“I have a lot of trouble with frizz when I wash my hair, and PPS The Ends really reduced the frizz and made my hair soft and silky when it dried. I feel like it really made my long, straight hair sit nice naturally, without any styling.” – Tiffanyb
“I would recommend this to anyone interested in a heat protector but especially to fine-haired dames who want a product that won’t weigh down their hair.” – Bee1
“After applying this balm day and night for over a week now, I am extremely pleased with the results. The skin is much softer and more hydrated, and the harder patches seem to be reducing in size as time goes by.” – Dollhouse
“I love to apply it heavily before bed and sleep with socks on so it absorbs really well, but I’ve also been using this every day after my morning showers. It absorbs very quickly and gives instant results.” – Bonnie Rose
“After two days, that issue I have with my feet was completely gone and I couldn’t be happier! Bring on summer, sandals and bright nail polish because for the first time my feet look good and – dare I say it – pretty!” – MissySLD
“The product is quite rich and you only need to apply a little bit. It works well under make-up and I always woke up with fabulous eyes and lips when I applied it before bed.” – Bonnie Rose
“It is instantly moisturising and a little goes a long way. The packaging is also beautiful – it’s in a clear jar with a silver top and it looks very sleek. They have thought of everything – a little spatula is included!” – Sophistication
“After applying twice a day using the adorable spatula, my under eye circles visibly lightened, my puffiness decreased, and my skin felt softer. The one thing that really astounded me was how quickly it sunk in! A mere 30 seconds after first applying, my eyes felt firmer and moisturised.” – Dimmity
“This was the first time I had tried a facial tanner, and I am hooked! One application gave my face a summery, bronzed look and a lovely, natural-looking glow.”– Turquoise Nails
“The results after a single application were very subtle and natural on my skin, which is naturally pretty fair. I didn’t have any streaks or an orange tinge, just a very natural sun-kissed look.” – Tiffanyb
“It is great value and I would recommend this to anyone interested in fake tanning and looking for a guaranteed natural finish.” – Bee1
“This is a lovely glowy tan that is quick and easy to apply! As a pale person, I was hesitant, but after using this tan I was very happy with the results.” – Bee1
“This one-hour tanning lotion gave me the perfect quick finish I needed for a night out, allowing me to retouch my earlier application of Pure Tan and give me that beautiful fresh glow.” – Dimmity
“Overall, I think I will use this product for those times I need a super quick developing tan, without having to wait overnight.” – Turquoise Nails
“I’m really pale and with this product, managed to build up an impressive glow over four days. Since then I’ve been applying it once every couple of days just for maintenance and it looks really good and natural – not an oompa loompa in sight!” – MissySLD
“After the first application I had a very light, natural glow on my legs that didn’t appear orange or too dark on my very fair skin. My legs felt wonderfully moisturised and smooth. I applied it again for the next couple of days and continued to look very slightly sun-kissed.” – Dollhouse
“After more than a week of using this product, I still have a beautiful golden glow that I’m just maintaining now. I smell fantastic and can’t wait to show off my newly bronzed pins in some shorts – loved it!” – SandyD81
