I wanted to do a little blog post on my absolute faves - bali body! and tell you a little bit about how i use the products, I get so many questions about these products on a daily basis and I have so many ways in which i use them i thought it was only fair i share the wealth!
First of all, the Bali Body Golden, this is my current favourite for many reasons, firstly…..the smell, its got that summer in a bottle coconut kind of smell! the kind that instantly takes you back to fond memories of summer! This is essentially a body oil which can be used as a tanning oil or in winter you can lather your whole body in it to make sure your skin doesn’t get those dreaded wintery snake like scales!
I bought my first Bali Body Golden a long time ago now, (it was in the original packaging for those who know it) It’s first trip out of the country with me was to Rhodes, I tan really well anyway but what I loved about this oil was the effect on my skin, it was literally GLOWING.. not even kidding, i also normally peel if i tan too quickly, but this tan lasted FOREVER, I don’t condone not using a little sun protection too, noone wants to look like a leather handbag when they’re older, but I’ve always been sceptical of all the chemicals in sun tan lotion, and the ones without chemicals are way out of my price range! I'd advise getting up and putting a layer of Bali Body Sun lotion on all over, have breakfast or something, then keep your Bali body with you throughout the day, you know your own skin and you know your safe zones, for me… my shoulders and face burn, so i avoid those areas with tanning oil!… for bonus points… use as an aftersun too, your skin LOVES the coconut!
I also love to use this oil in my hair…. firstly.. i do NOT use a lot, this oil isn’t made for hair so if your hairs perfectly healthy its probably going to leave you looking like medusa. but if.. like me, your hair is bleached and lacking life in the ends, a tiny bit of this oil rubbed into the ends can work wonders!
Last but not least, i use the Bali Body Golden as a primer before applying my bbcream, It makes my face smell yummy and gives a dewy glow!
…. that brings me nicely only my Bali Body BBcream, I have never gone out and bought a BB cream before in my life, i used to have the opinion of….'well its not really a moisturiser, its makeup, so why not just wear foundation and get a more flawless look?'
when i got my bb cream i saved it for a while as i knew i was going on holiday and thought it would be perfect, when i went on holiday it was 'that time of the month' and i felt ugly so i wanted to wear makeup round the pool (not something id normally ever do mainly because I’m lazy) but the bb cream was a god send!!!! it had the sun protection, made my skin look flawless, something i thought bb cream was incapable of doing, and it was so light my boyfriend couldn’t tell i was wearing makeup (he’d have told me off if he knew… they don’t get it) … my just wearing round the pool soon stretched into the evenings too, As i started to tan my foundation started to look a little like i was prepping for halloween not dinner! When I arrived back in the UK… my skin was in the best condition its ever been in, from the combination of the sun and using this lighter makeup… so now I use my BB cream as my everyday go to without any breakouts and no need for coverage!
The Watermelon Tanning oil is something i save solely for tanning, it gives amazing tan lines and it's a great alternative to the Bali Body Golden to mix up your scent now and again! It smells more like a sweet perfume so you can get away with wearing it out and about!
I have JUST recieved my first Cocoa Tanning oil, I haven't had chance to use it in the sun yet unfortunately but I have had a little eager experiment on my arm and from what I can see I am going to very much enjoy using this on holiday!
On to the Bali Body Luxe Body Lotion … this really is my go to everyday moisturiser, i’ve not been an everyday moisturiser kind of girl for long… living in the UK makes the thought of applying anything whilst stood stark naked in your bedroom with snow outside brings a downpoor of dead, however… it’s worth it, Despite all the ingredients in this baby helping you glow on the regular, moisturising in general helps your skin, just the motion of rubbing your thighs can help shift cellulite, It’s really really good to keep your circulation strong and something as easy as moisturising daily can help that! Not to mention that fact that all those insta babes claim to moisturise at least twice a day so if you want to be anywhere close to them… i’m afraid to say your going to have to put in the effort! (insert sassy emoji)
now for the grand finale….. the brand spanking new Bali Body Bronzing Lotion, so now you can get everything i just said about the body lotion, with a hint of tan, The Lotion comes out dark and just rubs into your skin until its a hint of tan, this is a game changer, no tanning mitt is needed, no worrying about the rain, no questioning how gradual this gradual tan is actually going to be, when I’m in a rush and I’m wanting to wear a skirt…. i can just use this lotion, and get a subtle tan aswell, no streaks and i can do it with my bare hands…. I haven’t even mentioned one of the best parts yet, the tanning element in this is CARAMEL EXTRACT!!! If your anything like me with a sweet tooth, thats just an added bonus.. my legs smell like bloody caramel, does it get much better? bye bye smelly fake tan legs and muddy stained palms!
