    Hi Kate! I tried Function of Beauty shampoo and conditioner a few months ago on your recommendation and I have to tell you I will never go back to anything else. I am on my third re-order and it has absolutely changed the life of my hair. You definitely know your products! I thank you and my hair thanks you! Much love and enjoy your summer! ❤️

    Hi Kate, Love your product recommendations! Question about the Isle of Paradise Tanning Mousse. How’s the smell?? Does it have that very distinctive lingering fake tan smell? I love St. Tropez Purity Bronzing Water Mousse and Watermelon Gradual Tan Lotion (they smell divine, no fake tan smell at all) but wish they both gave a little darker tan. I find I have to apply them religiously and frequently to build a darker tan. I was intrigued by the Isle of Paradise products because of the multiple shade options. I’m a bit sensitive to smells and have found with other tanning products if they have a strong “fake tan” smell they tend to give me a headache after a while.

      The smell is very mild!

    Hi Kate,
    Thanks for the recommendations. Glad to see the shield make the list, it’s one of my personal favourite sprays to use on a hot day. Smells amazing and feels great on the hair.
