Because there is no better time than long holiday weekends to test beauty products, the recent launches from The Body Shop were heavily rotated the last few days. Showing off some expert skills, the Vitamin C Instant Glow Enhancer and Honey Bronze Face Gel cover skincare and color to majorly improve any dullness related complexion emergencies. After succeeding in having too much fun, sun, and wine all at once, these formulas helped save face and put them among the summertime staples.
Part of the Vitamin C range, the new Instant Glow Enhancer combines properties of a light moisturizer, a tinted cream, and a makeup primer all in one. A true hybrid, this apricot hued lotion has an almost weightless texture and self-adjusts to any skin tone,leaving behind a glowy finish. More of a chameleon, it is not meant to cover as much as adapt and to help even out ruddy and tired skin.
Lightly hydrating, this radiance boosting treatment is the last step in your skincare routine and a perfect touch up over your makeup when your day turns social around happy hour. Simply tap it on areas that look sallow and need a jolt of energy to admire the natural, shimmer-free gleam. With brightening properties of Vitamin C from an Amazonian import, the Camu-Camu berry, the Instant Glow Enhancer guards against future damage and erases any signs of fatigue. Conveniently packaged, user friendly and (luckily) TSA approved, this tube is a travel bag, desk drawer and glove compartment beauty must-have.
On days when not much can be enhanced, there is no better solution than a subtle bronzer. The Body Shop Honey Bronze Face Gel is great for mornings when swirling that brush and tapping excess for precise application just seems like a project you’d rather not tackle. So easy that it can be applied in the dark, this completely matte and perfectly golden gel transforms a lackluster complexion and results in a rested and excited look.
Infused with Community Fair Trade Honey from Ethiopia, this bronzing gel has a delicious aroma of a real deal. The gel consistency glides on the skin and absorbs quickly, which provides a lasting effect of a sun kissed glow. Neither orange nor streaky, the smudge proof formula is easily removed with any cleanser or facial wipe. Complete the bronzing ritual with the other additions: Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist ($25) and Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome ($16).
