Tan Organic Duo Bronzer

TanOrganic duo bronzer

A bronzer is such a simple yet great addition to a daily make-up routine. Whether it's to add a sunkissed glow or a bit of definition to the cheekbones, a bit of bronzer always comes recommend. However being a pale girl finding a great bronzer can be difficult as many of them can leave me looking a bit tangoed or with a tan that is obviously fake.  I have for a long time loved The Body Shop light bronzer however since the whole Chinese airport situation I've not felt comfortable purchasing from them and have been on the hunt for a replacement (you read my recent review of the Dusty Girls Bronzer here). 

So when the online store NaturalCollection.com got in contact asking if I wanted to try something from their beauty and wellness range I was drawn to the duo bronzer from TanOrganic*. One half the of the product is a matt bronzer whilst the other half is a shimmery bronze with a touch of gold. The packaging is also nice but in a very subdue way. A great look on a grown-up dressing table. 

I was disappointed by the bronzer side, as it really lacks pigment. I'm not super pale but fair enough that I have to be very careful applying bronzer, but I had to apply a lot of this product for it to be noticeable. However I loved the shimmer side of the bronzer and found it perfect for highlighting. It's a very light shimmer when applied so it's great to perk up the skin on a 'no make-up day'. If you're familiar with the Pacifica Alight BB Cream then I found it gave a similar effect. The staying power was also perfect and there was still shimmer on my skin when I got home from a day in the office. 

I'd recommend this product if: you're in the market for a product that gently adds shimmer to the face and are as pale as me, or paler. 

I wouldn't buy this if: you're after a pigmented bronzer or have a darker skintone than myself. 

Ingredients: Mica, Zea Mays Stahc/Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Zinc Stearate, Octylodecanol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Caprylate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Simmondisia Chinensis Oil/Simmondisia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil/Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil. (+/-) May Contain: CI 77491 (Iron Oxides), CI 77492 (Iron Oxides), CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide). 

And for clarification I only noticed reading the ingredients after receiving this product that it contains beeswax. It was listed as vegan on the website so I'll have the brand clarify if this is artificial beeswax. 

Have you tried anything from the Tan Organic range? What did you think?



P.S. I'm currently hosting a giveaway to win a box of cruelty-free beauty products
