Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil

New favourite product alert!

I purchased this a couple of weeks back when The Body Shop were offering a whopping 40% off all full price products. I was a little nervous purchasing this product online without having sniffed/sampled/slapped it on first. Happlily, I am completely won over by this Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil.
First of all, it looks good! The 100ml glass bottle is cute and stylish and as sad as it sounds it looks good in my bathroom. The oil itself if a dark bronzy brown with flecks of gold shimmer running through it. It looks a bit scary at first, almost like a false tan, but it blends out almost clearly, leaving a subtle bronze glow and a hint of shimmer. If you had a tan, I’d imagine it would accentuate it perfectly, if you don’t, don’t worry it’s practically colourless.

The ingredients include Fair Trade honey and beeswax, both of which are amazing for your skin, not to mention contributes towards the beautiful scent of this oil. It’s floral and exotic and the scent lingers (subtly) after application. As it’s a dry oil, it’s not especially thick and applies like a dream, it’s actually a pleasure to apply and the best thing is it absorbs immediately. No walking like an Egyptian whilst you wait for it to dry. It’s not greasy and there’s no transfer onto your clothes. It leaves my skin super soft and that feeling lasts all day.
It’s a little on the pricey side, £16 for 100ml but the Body Shop is always offering discounts and deals. I've got to say, I found their service to be exceptional! I ordered online on a Sunday night and it was with me by the following Tuesday. It was perfectly packaged and included a free sample of their cult favourite Tea Tree Oil.

This indulgent oil is perfect if you want soft smooth skin, with a little bronzy glow.  A+
