Benefit One Hot Minute
Advantages: Works amazingly, looks great, lasts all day
As some people on here may already know, I am a big lover of Benefit Cosmetics products, and my make up bag is just full to the brim of it. One of their products that I can not be with out is One Hot Minute Bronzing Powder.
It is basically what it says on the tin, bronzing powder. It comes in a nice little screw top tub, which is made of metal and is a bronze colour. There is a clock face printed on the top which has the words one hot minute on it.
When you open the tub for the first time you will find the cute little fan brush which is supplied for application, and a plastic covering which you need to remove, as well as the sticker over the small holes in the tub which allow the product to come through. Personally I do not use the fan brush, as I feel it is not the right kind of brush for the job, and I use a medium sized blusher brush to apply my bronzer.
The powder itself is a nice warm, golden color and it has a really nice smell to it. The smell reminds me of cinammon, and is a really nice, warm smell. As I said before, I apply my bronzer with a medium sized blusher brush, and I find that this spreads the bronzer and blends it to my skin nicely and without any effort. I only need a tiny amount on my brush to gain a nice colour to my skin, and it does spread quite far too. It literally takes less than a minute to apply to your face, and it looks fantastic.
My skin always looks shimmery and glowing when I use One Hot Minute, and I look healthy too. I also find it is brilliant at helping to hide imperfections and flaws. Used on top of foundation and/or powder, it can help to create a beautiful, flawless finish which lasts all day. I have never once had to reapply my bronzer, even when I have put it on in the morning and gone out at night. It has perfect staying power, and when you want to remove it, there is no problem. It comes off easily with make up wipes, cleanser or just soap and water.
The powder itself is a light powder, so I do not feel like my skin is being clogged up when I use it. The lovely smell that comes with it also stays for quite some time, which I find perks my mood up on a cold winters morning, as well as perking up my face!
As with all other Benefit products, One Hot Minute does not come cheap. If bought from Benefit directly it costs over £21.00, but I have managed to find it much cheaper on Amazon, through Elle Cosmetics, for £14.50 plus postage and packaging. This is the best price I have seen it for on any website. There is a few listings on eBay, but I am vary wary of Benefit make up on eBay, as they all seem to be conterfeit products. A tub of this bronzer actually lasts me about 5 - 6 months, even with daily use, so even at the usual price it really is worth the price you pay for it.
You can buy One Hot Minute from The Benefit Website, from Benefit Stores and Counters across the UK, from Larger Boots stores, on Boots.com and on Amazon. Prices will vary according to which store you are in, I personally find Amazon to be the best option.
If you like to look glowing and healthy without extra effort, then this really is the best bronzer you will find. You can wear it on its own, or on top of other make up, and either way you will love the way it looks on your skin. I recommend One Hot Minute, 100% and I hope that you guys will love it as much as I do.
Summary: A perfect product for your face
