    Last week I attended our Marie Claire Prix D’Excellence Beauty Awards. It was a smart affair, I wore my highest heels and a black suit. I chewed the fat with some of the industry’s biggest PR players. Sipped my way through glass after glass of champagne. And not to blow my own trumpet, but everyone I spoke to told me how great I looked. Whilst my H&M two-piece was cracking, that wasn’t what they were complimenting me on and I knew it.

    Because I can honestly say that whenever I use a particular beauty product, I always, without fail, get compliments. Is that beauty product the best mascara? No it is not. Is it a foundation that works wonders on dry skin? No, I don’t wear foundation. Could it be a red lipstick that makes my lips look whiter? Nope.

    What is this magical product?

    These tanning drops have changed my life. I am not one to tan regularly – I occasionally get the best spray tan in London before weddings and I’ll use a instant tan on my legs when my hemline exposes more than I’m ready for – but I like a face with a wash of colour. About four drops in my morning moisturiser and I’m good to do. I work it into my face and down my neck and onto my decolletage. Throughout the day I get glowier and glowier and glowier. Then the compliments just come rolling in about healthy I look. It leaves no streaks, it never looks orange and it costs under £20. It is quite literally win, win.

    I kind of don’t want to share this with you, as it’s been my little secret for a while (‘oh yes I have been away thanks, popped to the South of France for two nights. It was marvellous.’) But here we go. Go and try it and watch the compliments fly in.
