I first became interested in this bronzer after reading about it in A Model Recommend's blog. It's so affordable, comes in a beautiful compact case, and has just the right consistency and mateness. I mainly use this to contour my face - one quick swipe with an angled brush and it subtly, yet very effectively, defines your cheekbones and jawline. What I love about it is how fool proof this is - as it buildable, you're not likely to mess up your makeup if you go to heavy handed as the shades are very forgiving.
It comes in four shades, and A Model Recommends perfectly sums up how to choose your shade - "If you’re a fair or fair/medium then I’d say go for the shade 3 – any fairer, maybe drop to a 2. Darker and you’ll very definitely need a shade 4. As always, if in any doubt, try it first hand."
As per her recommendation, I went for shade 3, I have been using this for about 2 months now, and plan to repurchase if I run out. A very well done job by Body Shop on this one!

My favourite blogger Essiebutton uses this bronzer in shade 01, and since we are pretty much the same shade I decided to go out and buy it! I thought at $20 that was pretty expensive for a makeup product from The Body Shop since Mac is only a little bit more, however there is a lot of product in this pan and it's highly pigmented! Shade 01 is perfect for me very fair neutral skin tone, and I use this to contour and give some slight colour to my complexion! It's a perfect non-muddy or orangey shade and it lasts all day, and it also doesn't have any shimmer! This is the perfect budget bronzer, I have yet to find one better. Plus, the packaging is cute! My advice: snatch this up during their 40% off sale, that is going on right now…it's go down from $20 to $12!

I wanted to love this bronzer, everything about it seemed perfect.
I have been wearing it for over a month until i realised it was the culprit of a site-specific skin rash, breakout and blackheads - worse than i have ever suffered only in the places i applied it in which i have NEVER broken out before. I don't know what could have caused this, but haven't had such a bad reaction since using benefits Hoola. I have stopped wearing it and in the last week skin has cleared so much and is healing, fortunately.
For those who are sensitive, beware, but this does seem to work for a majority.
I used the darkest shade of them all and my skin tone ranges from nc20-nc35 considering the time of year and i found this worked on me (colour-wise) for the transition. It looks golden and makes you look SO healthy albeit a tiiiny bit orange, and especially if you use the darkest shade as you become paler i would warn to use a very light hand.
Loved the packaging, it reminded me of more expensive estee lauder brands, and honeycomb effect on the powder itself!

this bronzer is so easy to use. it's too light that you can dust it all over your face to give you a bronzed look. it's not so pigmented that you can get away from a bad application. hahaha!! so if you're just starting with makeup, get this!!!:-)

This is a nice one. As a male who wears minimal, natural looking makeup, I can really appreciate this product.
First, I love the sturdy packaging and the faint honey smell. But the biggest pro is that there are 4 shades available, and they're all matte!
The first three shades 01 Light, 02 Fair and 03 Medium, are not all that different. In fact, 03 is not much darker, and 02 is strangely lighter than 01. Instead they should have been labeled as cool, warm and neutral accordingly. 01 has slight red undertones, 03 is yellow, and 02 is more neutral.
If you have a medium skin tone or use bronzer for heavy contouring, then 04-Deep is almost the only choice which might even be too light for dark skin gals. The other three shades are there if you like a more generous application of product. The good thing about 04 is that if it is applied first it packs a good punch, but if it's applied after a talc based setting powder it applies much sheerer, while still getting its work done.
The compact is made in Italy and contains 11g of product. Nice mirror, no-brush no-puff.
If you subscribe online you'll be notified about the 50% off on makeup (once about every three weeks). Then it will only cost as much as the average drugstore product.
By the way, the updated packaging with the honeycomb cover looks nice.

If you get the right shade in this product, it works brilliantly at adding colour into the face without appearing muddy or orange.
I have fair skin and auburn hair, I reached for it when loosing my summer glow. It's fabulous for contouring as it's matte and it applies so smoothly. I've also used it as an eye shadow on lazy days, but it works a treat, adding a lovely naturally warm tone.
The price is standard for TBS, a little more than drug store, but a little less than a high end brand. I tend to stock up when there are deals on voucher cloud to use in store.

Got this on sale. The texture is very soft and smooth. However I purchased the Deep Matte shade and it looks orange on my medium skin tone.

I totally love this? HG !!!!
I have this in the darkest shade which is Deep matte 04. I am NW35.
+This is a very natural lightweight powder
+ It gives me that perfect sunkissed look, a perfect brown, the same colour I would get naturally from the sun)
+ When I am a little tanner I can use this as an overall powder since it's very natural looking.
- The darkest shade is probable way too light for deepskinned beauties

I am crazy pale, truly pale and so the idea of bronzers has terrified me, until now.
The lightest shade if perfect for me, it is warm, but not in a tango way, and gives a natural, interesting flush. I am terrible about placing blush without looking like a clown, so a sweep of bronzer is the easiest and quickest way to look more polished and 'made-up' for me. The finish is matte but not flat, and the choice of skin conditioning ingredients make this glide on the skin. There is no scent to smell and no perfume or fragrance listed in the ingredients so this is a positive as I hate added fragrance in products. This has not broke me out at all, despite me using this daily and having blemish prone skin.
The compact has a good mirror in the lid, and the the powder come embossed with a honeycomb pattern in case you were wondering :). This lid also has a cool honeycomb effect that I can't really describe but its pretty. This powder is lasting for ages so far, well worth the money (you get 11.5g).
I will repurchase this forever, If they discontinue it I will be sad :(.

I was in the market for a Bronzer but most of them were (unreasonably) expensive. I was looking through The Body Shop'a website and I was excited when I saw that it carried Bronzers that were reasonably priced/relatively cheaper than the other I previously saw. So when I bought it, I expected it to be of an "okay-ish" quality but I was wrong. It does its job really well and I always turn to it to add colour to my skin. What I really really like about the bronzer is also the fact that it feels so light on the skin. I highly recommend this bronzer to everybody. So go get you some!
