It’s great to have a glow now and then and although I’m content in my fair skinned bod i do add a little something extra from time to time.
I was in Manchester city centre a few weeks back having a mooch around. I popped into 8th Day co-op which is a vegetarian health food shop & cafe. I love visiting because they stock quite a fair bit of skincare (click the link to see their range) along side plenty of organic food & produce. After spending what feels like hours applying testers to my hand i noticed they had a small make-up section with a few INIKA products on display. I was immediately drawn to the bronzers which is unlike me. Im more of a blush girl but the glisten from this particular pot was amazing! After a few swatches i decided on a whim that i was going to buy one. There are 4 shades, i chose sunseeker 04. Little did i know that when i had a look on the website when i got home that this bronzer was descried as one for very tanned skins! How wrong could i have got it! I should of known by the number 04 on the box but i wasn’t paying attention to that. I was more in awe of the amazingess.
This mineral bronzer is highly pigmented which i love as a little goes a long way. I am quite fair which is why i usually shy away from anything too dark in colour, but the way in which this bronzer blends into the skin i needn’t of worried. It gives a natural finish and that healthy ‘inner glow’. It does appear extremely sparkly in the pot but when applied this is not the case. The colour is buildable, durable and as for the name sunseeker well i certainly had a few comments from people asking if id been away. It retails at £20.50 and for the amount you get and how far it goes i would say it is certainly worth it!
This is my hand before applying all pictures are in natural day light. As you can see I’ve not been on holiday in a while!
And this is after i applied it all over my hand! As you can see it’s only subtle but really effective.
A picture non blended so you can see it in all its glory!
If you head over to my Instagram @thelifecake you can see a video of the slight shimmer it gives on the skin!
