Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere you’ll have probably heard about the much-hyped launch of Benefit’s brand new bronzer product – Benefit Hoola Lite*. It’s not very groundbreaking in terms of a “brand new” product but it’s nevertheless a product that many Benefit fans have been calling for, for what feels like forever. A light bronzer. Many pale gals that I know really struggle to find a good bronzer that they feel confident and comfortable in, because they’re not made with lighter skin tones in mind. So kudos to Benefit for creating a product that many people really needed to see in Benefits range.
The Hoola Lite* retails for the same price as the O.G. Hoola* at £24.50 for 8g of product and comes in the usual cardboard box and square brush style packaging. I’m not a massive fan of this packaging as it really goes get a bit messy and flimsy over time, but the brush is fab as always and I always take them out and use them to apply my contour with! I then go in with the actual box bronzer with a big fluffy bronzer brush.
I was pretty sure that I was not going to enjoy this product purely because the O.G. Hoola Bronzer* didn’t blow my socks off, but boy was I wrong. I was absolutely blown away with the formula, and I’m not even sure why I love it so much. The whole product itself just really wasn’t set to impressed, and then… I was pretty fucking impressed.
The shade is on the light side *duh* and I do need to build it up on my skin, however the effect is stunning and I always look beautifully sunkissed after using this. Oh, and I’m not a bronzer pro at all. In fact, I’ve only just started wearing it as of one year ago! There’s absolutely no worries for Fair-Light skin gals using this product and getting “muddy” or “tangerine” because the undertone is wonderfully sandy and the formula blends and melts into the cheeks dreamily.
Would I recommend the Benefit Hoola Lite? If you’re a pale, light-medium shade, with trouble finding flattering bronzers.. Definitely try this baby out. You might just unexpectedly fall in love, I certainly did.
