Advantages: gives a nice sun-kissed glow, easy to apply
Disadvantages: not widely available, could be a bit shimmery for some people
I bought the St Tropez bronzing brick almost a year ago now.
I don't use bronzer often and have only used this one a handful of times mainly during the summer months and while on holiday.
~ Price and availability ~
This bronzing brick is quite difficult to get hold of at the minute, but it is available for around £5.99 brand new on ebay. It may become more widely available again in the summer.
~ Packaging ~
The bronzing brick comes in a black compact with a clear lid, so that you can see the bronzer through the front. 'ST. TROPEZ' is in black letters down the side of the clear hinged lid.
The back of the compact has a list of the ingredients, an address for St Tropez and their web address, www.st-tropez.com. The bronzing brick weighs 12g and was made in China.
It also says, 'For an enhanced luminous effect, add a dusting of our Bronzing Brick to your face and décolletage area.'
The bronzer itself comes in 5 blocks of colour.
~ Use ~
The bronzer has 5 blocks of colour from a light almost white colour through to a much darker bronze colour and 3 in between colours. The colours are not in order from light to dark in the brick. The idea is to pick up all of the different colours on your brush when applying the bronzer.
I use this bronzer after applying my foundation and powder using a big brush in circular motions.
The bronzer is easy to pick up onto your brush and it is easy to apply. It transfers easily to your skin, without appearing too thick or dark. It looks quite natural with a light shimmer to it and it is not orange or over the top at all. It is not too shimmery either and it appears quite matte in the compact. It gives you a light bronzed look.
It is a nice way to give yourself a nice healthy glow without the need to use tanning products.
If applied correctly, it looks great on your skin and it is long lasting.
I really like this bronzer. It is the most effective bronzer I have used.
~ Conclusion ~
Overall I have been impressed with this bronzer. I would definitely buy this bronzer again and I would recommend it. It gives a really nice healthy, natural looking effect. It is not thick or over the top. It transfers onto my skin really easily and looks really effective. For the price I think it is great and you couldn't want much more from a bronzer.
Summary: Brilliant bronzer!
