The Body Shop Honey Bronze collection


Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder £13, Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil £16
Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm £6
available in stores and online

Sun, sun, wherefore art thou sun? With the Summer on temporary hiatus for the foreseeable future then this new range from The Body Shop could be the perfect answer to fake that sun-kissed glow and give your skin a gorgeous golden shimmer. The Honey Bronze collection* is aimed to suit all skin tones with their honey-enriched products providing moisture and radiance whilst leaving your skin with a bronzed luxe look. The Bronzing Powder is available in four shades and has been reinvented with a honeycomb design and housed in a rich, red-brown compact with handy mirror. The finely pressed powder gives a completely matte finish and is extremely subtle and buildable which is great if you are shy of shimmer or the heavily-bronzed look.

The rather cute and compact lip balm is a delicious treat for your lips. It smells absolutely divine of sweet honey and does wonders at repairing and nourishing dry, cracked lips. It is very slightly tinted and is laced with fine golden shimmer so is a lovely option to wear alone or layer over a matte lipstick for some added sparkle!

Finally, and probably the most luscious product from this collection, is the Honey Bronze dry oil. Lightweight and shimmering it glides onto the skin beautifully and gives you a sun-kissed glow enhanced with a subtle golden shimmer. The dry oil comes in two shades, the new Golden Honey which is light and subtle enough for day time, and their original darker Honey Kiss which is ideal to add some evening glamour to sun deprived shoulders and legs. I have been using Golden Honey and love the sweet scent and the fact it quickly sinks into your skin without leaving it greasy or too glittery. It isn’t dark enough to fake a tan but is so nice applied alone for a natural radiance or over your fake tan for an added bronzed finish and light-catching shimmer. Perfect to fake some sunshine on a rainy day!

What do you reach for to give your skin that sun-kissed glow? Will you be checking out the new Honey Bronze collection from The Body Shop?

    This collection looks amazing! Definitely like the sound of the body oil, it sounds a bit like the NUXE one, and I've always wanted to try that!

    That oil sounds like an amazing dupe for Nuxe! Will have to check it out.

    That oil looks absolutely stunning! I'm normally pretty skeptical of such products but I think I may give that a try! Personally I don't need too much bronzer though because I do live in south Florida and the sun is always out.

    Oooh! I'd really love to try that oil! I'm very fair but I think it'd be so lovely just to add a little glow to my skin! I absolutely love the smell of honey and that cute lip balm pot! Definitely going to go in and look at that. Great post! Happy weekend!

    The Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil looks so beautiful! I definitely want to get some of that now. 🙂 The glittery shimmer sold me, haha. I used to use a Jergen's one which I don't think they make anymore. Glad to see something like this is out there!
