We had one (yes, just one) gloriously warm day on Sunday, guess Mother Nature is a mother after all, she was nice to us on Mother’s Day lol.
While those summer warmth still fresh, I think it is time to talk about new additions to The Body Shop Honey Bronze line I was sent for review.
Honey Bronze products are enriched with Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia and smell very nice and summery. I look forward to using the dry oil every summer for that subtle glow on the legs and arms
Let’s get to the new products, shall we? There are 3 super cute Highlighting domes adding to the line. I have shades 01 and 03 to show you.
I like the compact dome format, with twist off cap, easy to tote around with. Similar concept to highlighting sticks, these domes offer a natural looking flush of warm sheen to your face.
Instructions suggest to apply the highlighter directly to the cheekbones and blend with fingertips but I use a brush to avoid my foundation transferring to the dome and the highlighter sticking to my fingers. And it works fine that way.
Both shades are quite creamy, light weight and easy to blend. However, don’t expect crazy colour payoff with them, as they are meant to be subtle. The honey scent is also very subtle on these, compared to the body products in the line.
The domes have 0.23oz/ 6.5g (vs. Maybelline Master Glazed blush sticks with 0.24oz/ 6.8g), retail $16 each.
And for your summer dresses and shorts waiting to be worn, The Body Shop introduces the Tinted leg mist. Despite the name, the product has a light gel texture, hence it comes out of the pump like a squirt instead of a spray or mist.
Make sure to hold the bottle near where you want the product to go, as you don’t want it flies through the air
Don’t be alarm with that though, or with how dark it looks first coming out of the pump below. Once rubbed in, the product becomes almost invisible but gives your legs an even warm and moisturized look without any shimmers.
Note that your palm will be tinted by the time you are done spreading the product on, so wash it right away. However, the product on your legs will not transfer to your clothes nor bed sheets if you allow it a few minutes to dry.
Ingredients: Water (solvent), Alcohol Denat. (solvent), Butylene Glycol (humectant), Glycerin (humectant), PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate (emulsifying agent), Phenoxyethanol (preservative), Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer (viscosity increasing ggent), Honey (humectant), Fragrance, Sodium Polyacrylate (film former/viscosity increasing agent), etc.
The bottle is 4.2oz/ 125ml, $20.
Here are how the highlighting domes (right) and the tinted leg mist look freshly applied, not blended.
Next time you are at The Body Shop store, give the Honey Bronze line a look! The products are fun for the summer.
