The Beauty Panel are Back - Instant Tan

Wednesday, 7 May 2008

We've given our babelicious beauty panel four brands of instant tanners to test out over the period of two weeks. We're focusing primarily on the legs as this is one part of the body we can never seem to get right when it comes to that false golden glow. Today we're going to see how they got on.

Beauty Panellists:

Sharon Brennan (39):
Mother of five, Sharon is from Dundalk in Co. Louth and is married to her lovely husband Martin. Her children range from 10-20 and they still manage to keep her busy, running a non-stop taxi service! Sharon enjoys socialising and living life to the full. Her youngest daughter Ruth is making her communion soon and she's enjoying getting all the family ready for a great day out.

Aida D'Arcy (42):
Aida is happily married 19 years this month to Tony. They have two children, Claudia and Luke aged 12 and 10 respectively.
They live in Ratoath, Co. Meath.
Aida likes to cook, she loves walking entertaining and LIVING "Life is for Living", she says emphatically.
Aida is a WeightWatchers instructor and likes to take care of herself. She "thinks every woman should and with inexpensive products it ain't hard to do".

Donna Lyons(26):
I'm a 26 yr old mother of two (3yr old boy & 2mth girl) & am badly in need of getting back on track with my style & looks.

Jeanna Gallagher (28):
I'm originally from a small town in Roscommon but I presently work in Dublin. I really enjoy reading and going to the cinema. I used to work in a bookshop and I can easily spend hours getting lost in one! I studied film for a few years in college and have been involved behind the camera too. My favourite films tend to be classics; anything from Alfred Hitchcock thrillers to Audrey Hepburn romances.

But of course - I like to get outside too! I really enjoy hiking, cycling and badminton. I love heading off for a day and just walking somewhere for hours. Badminton is a great way to meet new people and its really good exercise.
