As I am sitting in the sweltering heat in Paris I have decided to do a review of a summer product that I love- the shimmer waves bronzer by Body shop. Enjoy 🙂
The look achieved with the bronzer:
Colour & Pigmentation:
There are 5 warm and shiny shades in this palette and they’re all very wearable and neutral. I use the lightest shade of coral as I am quite pale but the product is available for darker skin tones as well. It is perfect to give you a tanned look.
The product is very easy to apply as you only need a few brushes of it to light up your face. However, do be careful as your face may get too shimmery if applied heavily
It also has multi usages. I use it as a bronzer (the intended use), eye shadow, and highlighter and sometimes even for contouring.
The packaging: This product comes in a square transparent plastic box, which box is pretty sturdy. It’s very easy to carry around.
How does it wear:
This products lights up your face making it all shiny but in a good way as it gives you colour. The shimmer is great if you are pretty pale. .The pigmentation is great and particularly useful for the summer when your winter foundation no longer suits your tanned skin tone.
Nevertheless, moderation is the key with this product and you can go wrong if you’re too heavy handed or layer it up. Also, as this product is a powder it is not great when you have dry skin so ensure to moisturise before wearing it.
Would I repurchase?
Yes I love the look it gives me; however I will be looking for something that works a bit better with, those like me, who have dry and sensitive skin.
Lots of love,
