Uber Glow

Ah, The Body Shop. So many memories of when I was in school and would have sold my Grandmother for the yellow and pink tin pencil-case with the dolphins on it.

It took a long time but I finally got over Pencil-case Gate and realised that they sold other stuff. Although I wouldn’t say I’m an avid user of their products I always seem to have a few bits knocking around, mostly Body Butter or the Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel. Anyways, I was in there recently for a quick browse and came across this bronzer.

Initially, it reminded me on Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick’s but the payoff is slightly more dramatic in this. I only noticed one shade on the shelves but as far as I know there is another pinker-toned version of this. I love the colours in it and have been swirling them all together for a nice glowy bronzed effect all over the face. I’m going for the uber glow, as I like to call it, at the moment, full-on shimmer included. Gone are the days of matte bronzing! Well, at least for the next week or two anyways. I don’t want to scorch myself outside in the sun but still want to look nicely tanned and this is doing the job perfectly, whilst adding a little bit of shimmery goodness.

If you were so inclined, you could use the individual waves as eyeshadow too as they’re wide enough to pick up some product on a small eyeshadow brush. And that’s it really. A rather boring post, but one with the word uber in it.

What bronzer’s are you lot using for summer? I’m thinking of re-embracing Chanel Bronze Universal (or whatever it’s called now) but dammit, there’s no shimmer in it!

    I’m using my all time fave Physicians Formula Shimmer strips bronzer in Vegas Strip. I’m pretty pale but love to look bronzy and shimmery in the summer and this is my HG product – I’m on my 4th one which is unheard of for me!!
