The Body Shop Honey Bronze Drops of Sun Holiday Glow Creator

I feel like I've been waiting forever for The Body Shop's new Honey Bronze Drops of Sun Holiday Glow Creator* to be released, but it has now landed on The Body Shop website so it's time to tell you about it. I didn't want to post about it before it was available to buy as that's a bit of a tease!

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Drops of Sun Holiday Glow Booster

I was sent this back in March so I could give it a try and provide a review for the product page on the website. I do find it a little frustrating when I look at a brand new product on a website and because it's brand new there's no reviews. So I think this is a great idea, although no reviews are currently showing on the product page for this! 

One reason why I've always been so cautious about attempting self-tan is because I've never really known how to attempt to tan my face. Even when I tan naturally my face tans differently to the rest of my body and is usually lighter. You can't really hide it if you've made a complete hash of tanning your face so adding something in to your moisturiser sounds pretty foolproof. I've wanted to try the Clarins Glow Booster since it was released but was unsure about picking it up because of the price. Prices for the Glow Booster appear to vary between about £17 and £19 online but The Body Shops Drops of Sun has a slightly more budget price of £12.

If you're familiar with the Clarins Glow Booster then this is a very similar product. The idea is you take some of your moisturiser and pop it on the back of your hand, mix in a drop of Drops of Sun and then apply to your face as normal. One drop will probably provide you with a subtle glow but you can add more drops if you wish for more of a tanned look. You can also add a little to your foundation and use to contour, or even apply to your whole face I guess if you wish. It's matte and shimmer free and doesn't have an orange tone to it so you don't need to worry about looking like a cross between Edward Cullen and an Oompa Loompa.

As much as I do like the design of the bottle it is glass, so may not be particularly travel friendly unless you wrap it up well (get it wrapped up in some knickers!) and also there are some issues with the dropper. I've found that once there is some product in the dropper it's easy to dispense a drop, but when the dropper is empty it can be difficult to get any product into it. I guess because it's a little thick it doesn't 'suck' up easily. There is usually some product on the dropper when you remove it from the bottle so you might have to resort to trying to wipe some off onto your blob of moisturiser. 

I'm really quite pale, almost see-through, and I found that this was quite subtle with one drop. I personally prefer this though as I'd rather build it up over a few days or add a little bit more if I know I need to rather than waking up the following day and getting a shock.  

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Drops of Sun Holiday Glow Creator is available in store now and on The Body Shop website.

  2. I really like the sound of this and need to check it out for summer as my skins super pale! I love the body shop so eager to go in store and see what this is like on my skin before buying as I find some products very dark/orange toned especially the BB cream x

    1. That's the problem when you're so pale, a lot of products can come out quite orange toned x

  3. This sounds quite interesting, I've never tanned before so this looks like a good place to start.

  7. Gosh, I'm super pale too so I've never bothered with much self tan because I can never get it to look quite right - a subtle glow sounds nice though, and it's good that you can control how much you add to your moisturiser! xxx
