Ever since Benefit launched I remember all of my friends having Hoola, the iconic hero product of matte bronzing powder coined ‘tan-in-a-box’…I believe it might have been one of Benefit’s first ever products. I was always so jealous of them whilst I was caked in foundation and blue eyeliner (bold choices). When I finally got my beauty obsessed paws on it I fell in love and it lasted for ages. Hoola is now award winning and a total cult fave and a celebrity beauty product favourite. All this and more can be found for £23.50.
As benefit have firmly cemented themselves on the beauty seen the Hoola range has grown considerably to fully bronze every inch of your body:
To get your body like a bronzed goddess all you need is Hoola ZeroTanlines. The packaging is insane, so tropical and the product promises an all over bronzer. Now usually I would be getting out my slightly grim / green looking tanning mitt but wait there is a makeup applicator pad attached to the top…will tan go on with this with no streaks?!? Yes it does, it was actually quite easy to use it took a little longer than normal but for a fab looking tan I have no complaints. The colour lasts for about 12 hours and the best bit is it won’t turn your bed sheets into an odd orange glow! Oh one last thing Hoola Zero Tanlines smells like holiday in a bottle! This is a tad cheaper than the cult product at £19.50.
If we move back on to the main event,your face. You first need the right tools for a sleek application and in the new Hoola range, Benefit have introduced The Hoola Bronzing and Contouring brush. The brush looks like a little palm tree with a bamboo like handle which actually serves another purpose of great grip and a green tinge in the bristles. It's extremely soft (I am actually just brushing it over my face right now with no makeup, it’s a perfectly normal thing to do!) but getting back to makeup it is a good tool to create a sexy contoured look for £17.50.
The dewy face trend is back with a bang this summer and Benefit are on the case with Dew the Hoola. Again the packaging is made to look like bamboo in a beautiful rose gold colour with another sexy tropical sent. Like the original Hoola this liquid bronzer still provides a matte, non-shimmer look which will be essential for my summer beauty routine. After trying this out I didn’t feel like I had anything extra on just a bit of glow for a lightweight natural look. I recommend using this as more of a contour by applying it under your hair line, under your cheekbones and along your jaw. Dew the Hoola can be purchased for £22.50
