On Wednesday night myself and Ella headed to the Academie Bronz' Express event where they were launching their new product Magic Radiance Drops. The theme was summer BBQ and it was hosted in a gorgeous Georgian house on Leeson Street with live music, food and drink.

Now, I am a self confessed tan lover! I have two guilty pleasures in this life and they are Gilmore Girls and false tan. I'm an addict! As I said on our Snapchat on the night, not even my bffffffffs have seen me sans tan. I buy my foundation specifically to match my tan. So when I heard about this event I knew it would be something I'd love.

In typical Irish fashion the rain poured and the wind roared (rhyming unintentional) but that didn't stop the party! The food and guitar player were moved inside where the party resumed. We ate delicious burgers drank THE BEST espresso martinis.

The product itself is a tan lovers dream.  I'm not a huge fan of putting tan on my face as it can clog up my skin but after talking to Tina and Tara from Bronz' Express about the new product I quickly said "this is what I've been waiting for my whole life!!!!!" (dramatic I know). So what you do is, take your normal everyday facial moisturiser  into the palm of your hands, then you add two or three of the Magic Radiance Drops, mix together and apply your moisturiser as normal!

I used it last night alongside the Bronz' Express Self Tanning Lotion. It was my first time using this tan and  loved how it went on and developed! I took a quick before and after pic so you can see how evenly it developed. Huge thumbs up from me!! It retails for €24 which is a little bit more expensive than what I usually pay so this product has become my "good tan" that Ill use for special occasions and big nights out! Just like every Irish household has "the good scissors" I now have "my good tan"!
