 Bali Body Bronzing Lotion review
As much I love the results of fake tan, sometimes the whole routine of prepping, exfoliating and developing the colour for several hours can be way too time-consuming, so what's a girl to do when she wants a sunkissed look in a hurry? Reach for the Bronzing Lotion, that's what!

You may have already spotted Bali Body on your Instagram feed lately as they've been constantly popping up on mine. The Aussie brand is famed for their tanning oils and lotions, and I was instantly won over by their cute square-ish packaging which is not only easy to hold, but also slim enough to pop into beach bags and suitcases without taking up too much space.

I took a closer look at Bali Body online and was pleased to discover that they're cruelty-free and vegan-friendly, and that their products are made mostly with natural ingredients (some have a few organic ingredients in there too so check the INCIs if you're interested). With this in mind, I was intrigued to try out their popular Bronzing Lotion to see what all the fuss is about!

 Bali Body Bronzing Lotion review
The best way for me to describe the Bali Body Bronzing Lotion is that it's like a BB cream, but for your body. It's packed full of nourishing ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Camellia Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil, and has a thickish body lotion type of texture. With so many oils in it, I was expecting it to be a little on the greasy side, but was pleasantly surprised by how easily absorbed it is, without any stickiness or heaviness. A lot of products like this can be quite drying on the skin, so I've been loving how hydrating this one is instead.

As you can see below, the lotion has a rich chocolate brown colour which looks rather scary and dark, but once rubbed in, it gives the most beautiful subtle bronzed tint to the skin (second photo), thanks to Organic Caramel extract that's blended into the formula. If you want a slightly darker colour, you can also layer it, so I imagine it would work well for most light to medium skin tones. 

This sunkissed glow is instant so it's great to use when you're short on time and perfect for applying before an impromptu night out with the girls! It also has a lovely, slightly coconutty fragrance and will stay on the skin until you wash it off the next day.
