Bronze your rocks off

Right now I’m in desperate need of some colour and skin love. Over a week full of mucas and feeling as rough as a badger’s behind has left my skin looking dull, drained and in need of a holiday. Well, instead of a holiday what I can offer you is this fab little pot of bronzing rocks from 17 Cosmetics. Taking inspiration from a product St Tropez launched about 18mths ago, this pot of bronzer permits the same application as bronzing balls without them running all over the place and making a mess. They’re chunky, pigmented, soft and give you a really delicate colour that isn’t too scary for the pre-summer season.

The pot allows you to swish around your brush to get a delicate sweep of colour on cheeks, protecting the contents and allowing you to chuck it in your bag without the fear that your purse will end up with a bronzed glow too. The colour can be built up too so it’s perfect for adding sheen to the decollatage or front of legs (if you’re mental enough to go bare legged at the moment.) The colour is very shimmery and catches the light though, so if you’re more of a matte bronzed goddess this may not be for you. For less than a fiver though this is getting me through London Fashion Week and beyond.

Available now from Boots priced £4.99

    The colour looks gorgeous – maybe a but shimmery for me, but I bet it looks gorgeous across the shoulders!

    That is so much cheaper than the St Tropez version . I do love St Tropez but I do also love all these copycat versions of their products at much cheaper prices .

    Dear Anon. I attempted to swatch, but because of the nature of the product you couldn't see much of anything. You get the drift from the colour of the product. Much love, me.
