[unpaid/samples/ad/affiliate] Having been lucky enough to be blasted by sunshine over the past few weeks, it’s kind of ironic that I’m choosing a cold and windy day to talk about the new bronzers from The Body Shop. But, next week is expected to be glorious (ish) again so with that in mind, meet the Coconut Bronzers!
I greatly prefer a matte bronzer to a shimmer one but there are both options available with a Matte Bronzing Powder and Glistening Glow Powder. There are three shades of matte, while the glistening is one dual shade. I have Fair here as my sample and it’s a bit too light to have any impact on my tone.
What’s really nice about it is the silkiness of the powder – and the light trace of a coconut aroma. Very holiday-ish. The powder, infused with Community Fair Trade Coconut from Samoa, doesn’t feel drying – it feels almost oil-coated which seems to help it blend out more easily than other powders.
The thing I cannot pass by is that you get a lot less actual product than you expect – most of the tin is filled with the puff! I have to admit I was surprised at the flat pan at the bottom once I’d taken the puff out – and anyway, don’t we mostly use a brush to apply bronzer? It’s rarely an all-over thing, and it’s hard to pick out highlights with a puff.
The first swatch is the Glistening Glow Powder which as you can see has a golden tone to it for hitting the high points, and then the Matte Bronzer in Fair. They’re both £14 HERE, non affiliate HERE. It’s vegan, of course, and a great buy if you find regular powder bronzers drying.
