The Body Shop | Honey Bronze Face Gel


Hi Girlies ,

So the basics first! I have very dry sensitive skin and when ever I apply fake tan is always go so patchy that I end up having to scrub it off and I'm back to being pale again so it's really not worth it for me :(



A few months back, I think it was a friends birthday or something like that but I ordered this online for half price (£12 reduced to £6) thinking that I would just give it a try. It's a wash off bronzing face gel which is also meant to moisturise your skin at the same time. It contains honey which I love anyways and honey is actually what I use as my daily cleaner (review here if you are curious).

This gel is really lovely and it doesn't irritate or dry my skin out at all which is amazing for me! You can get a nice subtle glow or build it up for a darker look if that's what you fancy. I applied quite a bit to a small section so the picture looks pretty dark! The Gel sinks in pretty quickly and it doesn't feel sticky at all. It doesn't have a dewy effect it's just sort of a soft silky feel.  I think this does moisturise my skin a little which is a positive for me and it does last quite well. I think this would suit all kind of skin types as it's not greasy. I don't apply this every day, just on nights out & it does stay put for the evening. 

I don't think that you don't get much product in the tube for £12 but when its 50% off I think its definitely worth it and I will be repurchasing when mine runs out.

Have you tried this? What did you think?

  3. I've been wanting to try this in the summer. It looks like it'd be good to mix with foundaton to match a tan.
