The Body Shop Bronzer

This was one of the gifts I had for my birthday from Leanne, as if I needed another bronzer haha, but I have to say I really like it and I am glad to add it to the "collection".
The Body Shop Bronzer is housed in a rather sturdy case which is appropriately a mixture of dark browns and oranges. The compact comes with a mirror, which yes is so handy but I never seem to find myself using them - is that just me? I always carry a separate mirror with me.
The honeycomb pattern of the powder is so pleasing on the eye that unless I used the powder straight away it would have very quickly become one of those products that I would have never used, due to the fact that I didn't want to ruin the pattern. A sad but true fact in the way I think about things, mainly makeup and stationary.
The powder itself is very soft but slightly chalky, it was rather nice running my finger across it to pick up the swatch. As you can see by the swatch it isn't very dark (this is in the light shade) so for me this is perfect for adding a bronzed look to my face rather than contouring. I need something slightly darker to contour. 




  1. I think I have shade no2, but these are so good for fair skin tones. YES, us pale girls still need color. ;) xx

  2. Looks gorgeous! Love the pattern!!x

  3. I wish I had gotten this bronzer in a slightly darker shade but I foolishly bought it in side 04 which is really dark and doesn't really work for my skin tone..maybe if your looking for a darker bronzer it could work for you! Lovely post :)x

  4. This would be an ideal shade for me as i am so pale.Not a fan of the packaging (the colour)and i never use the mirrors either :)

  5. I have this bronzer in 02 and I am normally an NC15 and it doesn't look at all too dark/tangoed on me! X
