Scott Barnes Body Bling: Platinum & Original

 Scott Barnes Body Bling in Plantinum and Original* (30ml, £7.50 each)

I love a bit of shimmer on my body, especially in Summer, so I couldn't wait to give this cult product a go. Body Bling was created by a celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes, who works with stars like Jennifer Lopez. Other professional MUA's use it on their celeb clients as well and apparently it's their secret to gorgeous, tanned and glowing skin. 

Body Bling is a moisturising shimmering body lotion and it comes in two shades: Original and Platinum. The original formula is much darker and more golden, while the Platinum option gives a cool toned glow. The lotion applies like a dream and feels very hydrating, leaving the skin 'lit from within' and radiant. It can be used on your face and body and comes in two sizes: 120ml and 30ml.  A little goes a long way and the effect is flawless. Just make sure to wash your hands as soon as you are done, because the dark option seems to stain my fingers.

I am not sure how it works, if you sweat etc because I haven't used it on my legs (only on my arms and decolletage), but most people use it to quickly tan their legs, so I can only assume that it stays in place all day/night. I haven't experienced any problems with it and it looked gorgeous all day.

You can see the difference between the two options below. I prefer using the Original BB on my body and the Platinum one on my face, or mixed with my foundation. If you have medium/dark skintone or simply love a dark tan, I would recommend the Orginal Body Bling and if you are fair skinned, you should give the Platinum Body Bling a go.
