Trying Bali Body's Skincare & Bodycare Range

 Bali Body are an Australian cruelty-free, vegan friendly and paraben-free brand who mainly specialise in selling fake tan products. However I don't use fake tan because it literally always turns out patchy on me and I also don't think it looks "right" on me because I'm just used to looking pale if that makes sense. Also with having chronic pain it's probably more hassle than it's worth in terms of the application and removal process. However when Bali Body got in touch asking if I'd be interested in trying out their products I was really intrigued by their skincare and bodycare ranges. So I've been trying out three of their products for a few weeks and in this post I'm going to be talking about how I've been getting on with each one.



As I've mentioned in previous blog posts I've really gotten into wearing more of an minimal base this year. So I've been opting for BB creams, CC creams and tinted moisturisers instead of foundation. I think it's because I feel like my skin can breathe better with products that are more lightweight and I find that they're easier to apply because you can just use your fingertips if you want to. I've also been liking wearing them if I'm feeling a bit rubbish about my skin and just want something to even out my skin tone. So the Bali Body BB Cream SPF15 priced at £25.95* definitely piqued my interested when I saw it. There's 4 shades available and I chose the lightest option which is "Fair". They describe it as a multi-tasking cream as it can be used as your base, sunscreen and an anti-ageing moisturiser all in one. I'll be honest I wouldn't feel particularly safe wearing SPF15 on it's own, especially in the summer but I suppose if you've forgotten to put your SPF on in the morning then at least it's better than nothing. The BB Cream itself provides a nice, glowy, light coverage which evens out your skin tone nicely. I've also been using it with a few dabs of concealer wherever needed just for a bit of extra coverage here and there. I do sometimes find that BB Cream shades can come up a little too warm for someone like me who is quite pale so I like that it's one of those products that adapts to your natural skin colour because the mineral oxidises to match your skin tone. So overall I would pick this up again. I think it would make a great summer or holiday base product! 

I don't know why but I was expecting the Coconut Lip Balm SPF15 priced at £12.95* to be similar to the Glossier Balm Dot Com which I adore. However I would say that the Bali Body Coconut Lip Balm is somewhere in between the Glossier Balm Dot Com in terms of how hydrating it is as well as a lip oil which I actually really like. It's quite runny so you do have to be careful when you first apply it because it did take me by surprise. But I do like that it makes my lips look super plump as well as giving a nice amount of moisture because of all of the nourishing oils inside.




Lastly is the Luxe Moisturising Lotion priced at £16.95* and I'm not going to lie, I was a bit disappointed when I applied it and realised it doesn't really have a scent. I was really expecting it to have a tropical scent, especially for the price and size of the product but it doesn't. I've had a look on the website and it says that it gives a light grapefruit scent but I can't smell it. *Also note this product does contain nuts in the ingredients*. It's lightweight but definitely packs a punch on the hydration front which I do like and with it being lightweight it means it sinks into your skin quickly. It's main ingredients include soothing Aloe Vera, hydrating Shea Butter and age defying Camellia Tea oil. Something else which caught my eye on the ingredients list is that it contains Lactic Acid. The reason why I found this interesting is because I suffer with Kerotosis Pilaris (chicken skin) on my upper arms quite bad and I find that Lactic Acid, if I keep on top of using it, really helps to reduce it. So I think it's good that the moisturising lotion has that added in so if I forget or let's face it, can't be bothered to apply the lactic acid after I've had a shower or bath then I know that the lotion will make up for it in the mean time. I'll be honest I'm still kind of on the fence about this product because of it being pricier than my usual lightweight body moisturiser and the fact that it doesn't have a scent but I do like that it contains lactic acid and aloe vera which are two of my hero products.

Have you tried anything from Bali Body before? If so, what did you think?

  2. I have tried bali body before and unfortunately didn't get along with the products! I think it was the BB cream, it just didn't have a very good finish on my skin but I'm glad you got on with it! x
