The Body Shop Honey Bronze for Summer 2011!

Thinking about getting your summer glow-on early? Then head down to The Body Shop and check out the Honey Bronze line! The products all contain Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia and beeswax from Cameroon to moisturize and have me thinking about lying on a beach - with a fan boy fanning me of course!

Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil - 100ml - $14 - for a natural-looking bronzed shimmering glow with a dry finish.  Long-lasting and streak-free.

I love this product! As someone who is exceptionally pale, I have the whitest legs, the kind that blend in with snow and scare small children!  On occasion when I have to wear a skirt I am always left with the dilemma of what to do about them, with advance planning on can slap on some self tanner but if it's a last minute thing, I'm screwed!  The dry oil totally solves this problem, it gives me a little bit of colour but not so much as to look fake and a nice glow that takes away the pastiness!

Honey Bronze Brilliance Powder - 5g - $22 - in bronze or copper - an illuminating powder that can be applied to cheeks and collarbone to leave skin looking glowing and radiant.

Honey Bronze Bronzing Gel for Face - 30ml - $14 - a light-weight moisturizing bronzing gel that suits all skin tones to give an even and natural-looking, honey-bronzed glow.  Also contains organic aloe vera from Guatemala.

Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder - $18.50 - in four shades - gives skin a matte, natural-looking glow. Also contains marula oil from Namibia.

Honey Bronze Lip Nectar - $10 - in Honey Bunch - coral and Honey Beige - sand - sheer high-shine glossy tint that you can wear alone or over lip colour and provides lots of moisture. Stay tuned for swatched!

How about you, are you itching for summer and ready to fake it?

  1. These look awesome! I rarely buy Body Shop but I might have to go have a look. :)

  2. Everything looks great! I never know that Body Shop have such a beautiful summer line. I hope it´s available soon.

    I´m ready to fake the summer. ;) I use MAC Skinsheen, MAC Loose Beautypowders, Givenchy Bronzers for the face!

  3. I have the same problem with the scary white legs. I might have to pick this up, as I always forget to do the self tanner thing!

    Thanks Lisamarie!

  4. the bronzing powder looks gorgeous! i'll definitely have to check that out.

  5. Those all sound great! I will also use the self tanner for my legs if I have enough advance warning, but otherwise I stay pasty all summer long. The dry oil sounds like it would be perfect for me. And I can't wait for some swatches of the lip tints!

  6. Aww, no bronzing gel available in my country, but we've got the rest of the range. I LOVE them! The PR kit they sent to us in Singapore was gorgeous too, you can see it here:
