I love Body Shop products. Whenever I see an outlet, I have to go and try some products and most of the times, Body Shop does not disappoint me. I got this product by chance as there was an offer going on at that time. Buy 3 items and get 30% off. Obviously, I did not want to miss the deal and the opportunity of trying some new products. That is when I got to know about the “Honey Bronze” range and was completely mesmerized by it. Hence, fell into the trap of splurging and bought it!
This “Honey Bronzing Dry Oil” gives your skin an even bronzed look with a hint of shimmer with lightweight body oil. It is for all skin types.

It contains Community Fair Trade honey from Ethiopia and beeswax from Cameroon to moisturize. The key ingredient mentioned is Organic Honey.
Give it a good shake. Apply over body using circular motions. Wash hands after use. Avoid contact with fabrics.
My Experience with The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil:
Firstly, I am not a big fan of using oils on my body, especially in summers, but this product grabbed my attention as it says “Honey Bronze Dry Oil,” so I liked the concept of dry oil. Transparent glass bottle packaging looks very nice and attractive. The product from outside looks as if gold shimmer is mixed with bronzing oil. However, the oil and shimmer tends to separate, so before using, shake the bottle well so that the product gets mixed well and gives you the benefit of both moisturizing bronzing oil and golden shimmer. The smell of the product is a little overwhelming for me, but now, I am used to it. It is floral but oddly strong.
Pour the product as required on your palm and massage in circular motion to get the best effect. It gives a very subtle bronzey shimmer look when applied. Dry oil does sink into the skin quickly, but I feel on a very hot and humid day, this product does feel sticky and takes a lot of time to get absorbed. On such days, give this product enough time to sink in completely and then wear clothes. This product enhances your existing tan and works as a quick body bronze. It also acts as a skin care product as it has Brazil nut oil from Peru and beeswax from Cameroon.
Can’t say how effective this product would be on darker skin tones as the final color is really subtle.
Pros of The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil:
- Easy and quick way of getting even toned body with a light shimmer.
- Great product for women who like a bronzey, tanned look.
- Nice shimmery glow in summers.
- Extends the life of the existing tan.
- Color is subtle, good for everyday use.
- Nice packaging.
Cons of The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil:
- It takes time to get absorbed into the skin on hot and humid days.
- It can spoil your dress if worn immediately.
- People with very oily skin can avoid this dry oil.
- Very strong smell.
