I received a voucher for my birthday for our local shopping centre and rushed into the city today to pick up this beautiful new release from KIKO – the Gold Waves Bronzer. I had seen it featured in a SophDoesNails video where it received rave reviews and I wanted to try it out for myself.
I don’t really own a special bronzer – I ran out of my Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer a while ago so have just been using a matte L’Oreal one. Since we have had such glorious sunshine over the last few days, my need to glow, glitter and sparkle has been overwhelming and matte bronzers just aren’t really an option right now. This offering from KIKO has the right amount of shimmer and gives me a healthy glow. I went for the lightest shade – 01 Sun Celebration Honey.
The bronzer is part of a summer collection released by KIKO called the Golden Waves Collection. Some of the products available include highlighters, eyeshadows, matte lipsticks, waterproof foundations and eyeliners. All perfect for that sunkissed glow whether staying home this summer or going away.
I can’t really review this product without mentioning the beautiful packaging. The cardboard box is gold with a gorgeous blue pattern embossed on the front. The bronzer itself is encased inside a lovely (large) gold compact with a mirror inside the lid. I love the detailing on the outside too.
This is a baked bronzer which smells beautiful! It is enriched with Jojoba oil which makes it very soft and smooth and easy to blend out onto the skin. It is scented with vanilla – but not in an off-putting way, it’s subtle and very summery. The smell just makes me happy. You also receive a lot of product for your money – 20g to be exact!
