Hoola Bronzer || Benefit


Ok, so some of you may not know this, but I’m not a huge fan of Benefit. I have literally tried nothing of theirs if I’m being honest, but you know there are just some things where you are just like, “no, its not for me”.

Well Benefit was that for me!

Apparently my friends and family never knew this about me, so over the past while I’ve accumulated a number of products.

Today I’ll be chatting about the “Hoola” bonzer, a cult classic that many of my friends love!! I had the pleasure of receiving a mini/travel size one, if you know me you will know I LOVE travel size things, mini things, and anything that is a small version of something regular size. The bronzer must have seemed like a good idea coz I do love me a good bronzer!

I had heard good things about this product but wasn’t sure as I thought it was just hype.



For me the “mini” size is perfect. I can’t see myself using the larger one up, and I like a high turn over of my products as I’m very aware of things going off ( its a powder so this one technically doesn’t go off), and it just not being very hygienic to have things longer than six months to a year. That being said I do have a number of things that DEFO need the bin but I just can’t part with them.

I tend to use this as a contour as opposed to an over all bronzer. I think with my colouring it works really well for that, otherwise I can just look a bit dirty. I use it sparingly and blend like a MOFO. It builds up well so for a night out you can have a strong contour with it.


I adore the little brush provided. I literally have no idea how I lived my life before I had this brush. Its amazing for getting that contour on fleek and it just so handy.  It slots in perfectly to the bronzer packet which makes it great for travel.



I don’t think its my holy grail product, but it is definitely  one I would come back to again! Not sure I’d bother investing in the larger one though, I just don’t see the point. I’ve had the small one for so long, at least 6 months now and I still have a good bit left. I feel like if I ever got the larger one it would be like two years before I even got through half of it, as I like to try out new products it just wouldn’t be worth it for me.

I think a lot of my love for this product revolves around the brush so I’ll defo be keeping good care of it so I can use it with future bronzer/contours.

Is there a benefit product you can’t live without? I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment down below!

      Thanks Sue, yea I hope they bring it out in the travel size as I’m not sure I’d get the large one. 😉
