Summer Bronze: The Bodyshop Drops of Sun

I am so excited about these – I have been on the hunt for a cruelty-free cream/liquid bronzer that didn’t cost a fortune for the last two summers, thanks bodyshop!

So let’s get into it: I bought them on thursday when I saw the bodyshops instagram and am now (sunday) completly obsessed! The Drops look pretty scary at first because it’s just black liquid but as you can see in the pictures below they blend in very beautifully.

I either mix them with a little bit of my foundation/tinted moisturizer, on their own – or the best way so far (tried yesterday for going out) with liquid highlighter in my case becca opal – so gorgeous! And they have staying power, after mixing them on the back of my hand I tried wiping them of with a tissue but it stained my skin and only came of by washing my hands with soap – so I assume ain’t no coming off that easy sweating in the heat.

When applied they look like skin, no visible texture or streaks and give you (even on their own, no mixing) a fair amount of time for blending before finally setting. Because it’s  a liquid it adds a glow/sheen to your face that looks really natural – no greasiness, promise! I used 3 drops for my whole face building up slowly and as you can see going from palypale to light summer tan.

These are the products I used for my base: too faced hangover primer, mix of tarte tinted moisturizer (ivory) and chanel vitalumiere velvet (12 rose beige) and bare minerals bareskin serum concealer (fair). You get 15ml of product for 16€ (in germany) which is a very good price because this will last you ages. I am totally in love and highly recommend you going to your nearest bodyshop and try out yourself.
