We all know Benefit and we all know Hoola. Well, now Hoola has been joined by a whole group of new friends – in fact, there are three! Benefit sure know how to do a good launch and keep it fun. This new collection is perfect for summer bronzing. Think short shorts and long, bronzed limbs and we are getting closer. Why would you want to lay in the sun all day to achieve what you can in a fraction of the time with this new collection (minus the sun damage too)? So I am really pleased to be able to review the new Benefit Hoola Face & Body Collection!
Let’s start with Benefit Zero Tanlines. This is an all-over body bronzer that comes with a very handy applicator sponge (hidden in the cap) so that means no messy hands or trying to desperately cover up your stained nails with the darkest nail polish you can find. The hidden cap is EVERYTHING. I recently went to Majorca and packed an applicator mitt and guess what? When I landed in London the inside of my suitcase was stained and some of my clothes too. Okay, it was my fault – I should have put the applicator mitt in a bag but I was in holiday mode and forgot. Therefore, I think that the sponge-in-the-cap is brilliant.
Benefit Zero Tanlines is also transfer-resistant and won’t stain your clothes. Do you know how many white t-shirts I have thrown away after one wear because I was also wearing fake tan? The fragrance of this as well is really nice – it doesn’t have that typical fake tan smell that smells of soggy biscuits. Which is a real benefit. Excuse the pun!
You can’t have a bronzed bod without having a bit of colour on the face. The new Benefit Dew the Hoola is a matte bronzer that is brilliant! My face is shiny enough already so I am loving the matte formula of this. It’s super lightweight and feels almost like a primer when you put it on. It doesn’t leave streaks either. You can really contour with this formula as well by dabbing it on in dots under your cheekbone and up into the hairline.
Which brings me to the next item which I LOVE. I am a bit of a brush magpie so was delighted to get my hands on the new Hoola Bronzing & Contouring Brush. This brush is beautiful, truly a gem for your #shelfie. This is pretty much a do-it-all brush as well. I think I will use mine for both bronzing and also just for powder applications. It is beautiful!
And last but certainly not least is the Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder itself. This little classic is amazing and has been around for awhile. My face literally lights up and glows when I apply this powder on all the right spots and when I use it I get compliments saying I look well rested. In the summer, I’m planning to use this every single day!
