Holiday in A Bottle

With the insufferable weather that the UK can bring, finding a boost in complexion can be null + void. Time Bomb Cosmetics have created Holiday in a Bottle that is aimed to give an instant, healthy-looking sun tanned boost for pale, ashen “indoor” complexions. Okay I’m pale for being bi-racial and definitely need help in the complexion boosting department.

I’ve been using the shade ‘Suntanned’, described to give a translucent, sunny bronze it comes in a 30ml pump bottle, the cream at first looks slightly grey/lilac shade but develops on contact with the skin into a more natural brown appearance as it adjusts with your own complexion so it doesn’t look crazy. It washes off just like tinted moisturiser so keep in mind, it’s not a self-tanner, foundation or stain. I’ve used this a handful of times now and I apply it before my foundation (like a primer) although I have used this alone when I just want to go without makeup and want some colour, so I don't scare people. I’d reach for Holiday in a Bottle. I make sure to blend it all over the face down onto the neck. I don’t use more than 1 – 2 pumps but that is personal preference.
All in all it’s a hit for me, without a doubt. Anything that can boost my complexion and not turn me orange / red – thumbs up. I think it works better more so alone than with foundation for me as the foundation plays down the complexion boost.

It’s also available in Sunkissed for lighter, honeyed sunny glow.
