Ahh, spring. Remember that? Days spent lounging in a park or beer garden, glowing skin a given. Well, you might not be able to spend your days frolicking outside anymore, but that doesn’t mean your skin can’t look sun-kissed and radiant.
Try Babe Balm Bronze, our glow inducing skincare-makeup hybrid AKA pocket-sized sunshine.
Delectably creamy in texture, Babe Balm Bronze is a highlighting, cream bronzer that uses an intelligent blend of ingredients like shea butter, calendula & coenzyme Q10 to soften & nourish the skin whilst making sure none of the moisture escapes - necessary when a lack of fresh air leaves skin feeling dry. Shimmery, sustainable mica powders give it a natural, bronzy, glow reminiscent of balmy summer evenings somewhere in the Adriatic. It's buildable and you only need a little bit for a dewy finish so this lil pot of sunshine will last you ages.
How to use Babe Balm Bronze:
Apply a small amount of the cream bronzer to the high points of your face and just about anywhere you want a lil extra glow. Cheekbones? Yup. Collarbones? You name it. Eyelids? Hell yeah. Babe Balm Bronze also works super well blended into mineral eyeshadows and powders if you fancy giving them some extra shimmer.
Need another reason to love Babe Balm Bronze? Well it has some serious sustainable credentials. Not only is shea butter, one of BBB’s hero ingredients, seriously nourishing & soothing, but when sourced responsibly, shea kernels are also an incredibly sustainable crop. Growing wild & in abundance, the shea tree requires no use of fertilizers or pesticides. 90% of the energy our supplier uses to actually produce the shea comes from renewable sources too.
As well as sustainability, our supplier also has a huge focus on ethical practices, running a programme designed to support and empower local communities of women in West African countries like Ghana, Mali & Ivory Coast. Based on fair trade principles, including access to pre-financing, education and logistical support, the program involves over 200,000 women and continues to grow.
We’ve also taken extra steps to ensure that the mica we use is sustainably & ethically sourced from the US, using traceable and environmentally practices.
Its pot is made from glass, so once you’re finished with Babe Balm Bronze, simply pop it the post back to us (when you can) and we’ll sterilise and reuse like for like as part of our circular recycling scheme, ReBYBI. Like all of your BYBI orders, it’ll be delivered in eco grasspaper boxes that use up to 80% less energy.
