Beauty: Skinny Tan Review
I’m not a big self tanner, mainly due to the fact that I don’t trust myself to get an even coverage. However, like most girls, I do like to have a bit of a glow for a special occasion.

I decided to try out the 7-Day Tanner and the Gradual Tanner.

The main problem is how thin my hair has become, it must have been a gradual change as I never used to have thin hair. From this picture you will see what I mean – this is ALL my hair!
