Bybi Babe Balm Bronze: A Review
As someone who’s far too lazy to put more than about three minutes into doing my makeup, one of my favourite products is a multipurpose one that can be used multiple different ways on the face for a pretty makeup look in seconds.
Throw in some skin-friendly ingredients and a coppery/bronze shade that’s universally flattering and I’ll pretty much be rebuying for life, so Bybi’s Babe Balm Bronze– a little multipurpose balm from one of my favourite natural skincare brands- is one of my all time favourite products.
Bybi’s Babe Balm Bronze
A pigmented follow-up to Bybi’s original Babe Balm (a multipurpose moisturising balm for hair, skin and nails), this pot benefits from the addition of bronze mica for a sweep of colour.
Boasting a shea butter and camellia oil base (as well as a host of other goodies), this hydrating balm feels slightly damp to the touch, a little like lip balm, and is really moisturising.
Like everything else from Bybi it’s also vegan, cruelty-free, 100 per cent natural, and its packaging is recyclable.

How to Use it
More of a copper than a cool gold, this offers a warm wash of dewiness and shimmer that works for eyes, cheekbones and lips for a bronzed goddess look.
Really easy to apply just with fingers, the balm thins down to a nice liquid texture on contact with the heat of hands, making it quick to dot across the face and blend out.
To get even more value out of this I also really like using it on collarbones and tops of shoulders as a subtle highlighter.
All natural and really flattering, this coppery multipurpose balm is one of my favourite no makeup-makeup products. And although the pot it comes in is tiny (6 ml), I need so little to get a glowing, bronzed look going that the value here is pretty impressive.
Great for: Bronze tone fans and anyone who likes their makeup on the easy-to-apply side.
Not-so-great for: Oilier or acne skin types, who might find this a bit oily.
