the body shop honey bronze collectionThe temperatures are starting to cool off… but if you aren’t ready to let go of that summer glow, this is the collection for you! I was super excited when I arrived home from my trip to Newfoundland to find these beauties waiting for me… and I’ve been using most of them almost daily.

Our honey-enriched Honey Bronze collection creates a total bronze look that suits every skin tone all year around. It’s perfect for creating a gorgeous, bronzed glow or to enhance an existing tan.

Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist

It gives an instant, even sun-kissed bronzed glow whilst leaving your legs feeling refreshed and moisturised. No oil, no shimmer, no transfer – just a natural looking matte tan!

I have a hard time tanning… typically I either burn, or I’ve applied so much lotion you can’t even tell I’ve spent time in the sun. I don’t mind for the most part, but I don’t like blinding people when I wear a skirt, so I was excited to try this. I honestly had low expectations, because almost every other self tanner product I’ve tried has turned me orange… and when I first sprayed it on my legs I cringed… but I was pleasantly surprised to see how natural it looked once I had blended it in. I washed my hands immediately after applying and they weren’t stained at all, it lasted on my legs all day and washed off easily in the shower. I love it!

Honey Bronze Tinted Face GelHoney Bronze Tinted Face GelHoney Bronze Tinted Face GelGet a subtle sun glow. This translucent lightweight formula leaves skin with a sun-kissed bronze matte tan that looks utterly natural, never orange or streaky: it’s fool proof! The refreshing gel texture quenches skin all day whilst its gorgeous fragrance takes you to the beach in seconds.

This is great for people who don’t wear foundation / concealer every day like I do… It does give a nice subtle glow, and it smells amazing, but as soon as I apply my makeup I can’t tell that it’s on. I’m not comfortable enough with my skin to go without, but I will be holding on to it in the hopes that by the spring I will be (if my pregnancy mask ever goes away *grumble*). It does leave my skin feeling moisturized which is a great bonus!

The creamy, lightweight texture glides onto skin for a soft finish with a delicious honey fragrance.

I have used cream highlighters before but I am new to cream blush/bronzers. I really like these, but I find they work better when I don’t have foundation and concealer on… otherwise when I start trying to blend them in my foundation and concealer move along with them – even if I’ve set it with powder. If you’ve had this issue before or know how to fix it… I’d love to hear it!

I’ve been using the beautiful champagne highlight shade down the middle of my nose, the middle of my forehead, and on my cupids bow. I prefer my powder highlighter for my cheekbones. The blush is a beautiful pink with gold shimmer and the bronzer works well as a light contour for the sides of my forehead, and in the hollows of my cheeks.
