I am a pale girl. I used to not be but when I started wanting to protect my skin from the sun it just is what it is. I rely on bronzers and self tanners. There is a really interesting product that I just discovered that is sort of a hybrid of the two. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Face Gel applies onto the skin and looks like a self tanner but it washes off like a regular bronzer.
Get a subtle sun glow with Honey Bronze Tinted Face Gel. 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.
The way I have been applying this is slathering it onto my face and bringing it down my neck. I then go in and do my makeup over the top of that. I actually find that most of the time I don’t even apply foundation or concealer when I wear this because I like the look of my warmed up skin on it’s own. I do go in and apply blush and yes, more bronzer.
It applies smoothly and I haven’t experienced any streaking. You can see that it does gather in fine lines and wrinkles but if you put forth a little effort into your blending it wont do it. It will dry and set and stay where you put it until you wash it off. And it does wash off easily with your regular cleanser.
I think you will enjoy this lightweight bronzer as much as I do. You can get The Body Shop Honey Bronze Face Gel at thebodyshop.com! What is your favorite way to bronze up your skin?
