For those of you who tune in to DiaryWorld on a regular, or quasi-regular basis, you saw my rather unique Facebook Live video last Monday (our Diary Day of Beauty, MAKE-IT-UP-MONDAY) with the owner and founder of NOUV Tanning, a really amazing UV free couture spray tanning service, whereby owner / master tanner, CRYSTAL ESTEVEZ, brings her talents straight to the privacy of your own home, and sprays / sculpts you dark and shimmery fabulous with pure, organic products good enough to eat, that last  – oh-so-goldenly – for a good week / 10 days.

Well today, we continue the Nouv love, because I’ve had a chance to try the Coconut Oil Cream that Crystal had been going on about, promising me that once I’d lathered a little of this oil to cream on my bod I’d be hooked by both its rich, moisturizing, tan-extending properties and, on a more sensual level, its exotic tropical fragrance that screams / intoxicates beach delish!


THE VERDICT: She was spot-on on both fronts. I was certainly blown away by the moisture replenishing (my skin felt like a baby’s bottom), as well as the crazy good smell I couldn’t help but keep sniffing, even when not in application mode, cause it brought up such potent images of tropical summer, with a glass of wine, great book, good tunes, and ample opportunity to say ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ………

ADDED BONUS: Like the tanning spray, the ingredients are as organic and pure as can be, ensuring that your temple gets the full-on nontoxic love it deserves.

Thanks for the healthy tantastic Crystal. You rock!
