If you’re feeling this Winter as hard as I am, this review might just be for you. Bali Body are well known for their tanning oils but right now in Oz we need to fake it til we make it. Enter Bronzing Lotion, Shimmering Body Oil and BB Cream.
These three gems are keeping my faux glow in golden condition while we pretend it isn’t six degrees outside.
Bronzing Lotion is a beautiful moisturiser with a golden tint to it to provide instant, wash off bronzing. I love this layered over my self tan to deepen the colour and it’s gorgeous by itself just for a hint of bronze. Bronzing Lotion is rich in almond oil and coconut oil and uses natural caramel to achieve it’s bronze finish. If you’re like me and always forget to fake tan, you’ll love this. One quick application for bronzed skin that doesn’t transfer. I love that this isn’t just a body makeup but more of a skincare with benefits.
Shimmering Body Oil can be used in much the same way as Bronzing Lotion; either alone for J-Lo glow or over existing tan. This is a beautiful light weight oil that dries down quickly to leave hints of gold and bronze shimmer. It’s again rich in coconut oil as well as jojoba and grapeseed oils which are fab antioxidants. I didn’t find this transferred onto clothing at all which is a point of contention with me and shimmery oils. It wore incredibly well and I actually mixed a little bit in with the Bronzing Lotion with great success.
I’ve also been using the BB Cream regularly and it’s fast becoming a favourite. It’s a super sheer coverage (think Glossier Skin Tint) and has a glowy finish without being sticky. This tint is rich in hyaluronic acid and green tea (another great antioxidant) and is lightweight and incredibly natural looking on the skin. It comes in four shades and contains and SPF15. This is ideal for anyone traveling, looking for something lighter than a foundation or those with minimal time to do their makeup and it applies really easily with fingers. I love this for ‘no makeup makeup’ days or just ‘damn good skin’ when I want to keep my makeup minimal.
Lastly, I bloody love a good Aussie brand and this one doesn’t disappoint. All products are made here in Melbourne, Australia and are 100% vegan!
