Time Bomb Cosmetics | Holiday In A Bottle

Hello My Lovelie,

I hope you are all doing well and had a fabulous weekend. Even thought it is Monday i am feeling really inspired today. In the Meola household today we are talking about all the vacations we are planning and have lined up throughout the year. My parents have been really secretive lately with all this talk about after i graduate in July…i wonder what they have planned haha. 

I have just got back from walking my little Bella and it is literally so cold outside…like it should be snowing cold. I don't know about you but i am missing a bit of the sunshine, it always makes me feel so much better. Don't fret, i have a solution for you all! I was recently 'Holiday In A Bottle' from Time Bomb to give a try. I have actually never tried any Time Bomb products before so it was nice to try something different and discover something new. Time Bomb are a collection of unique skin-optimising and beauty enhancing products designed to undo the visible effects of skin saboteurs like ageing, toxic exposure and lifestyle stress. Their products are targeted for modern life skin problems and every product is a hero in it's own right loaded with the highest concentrate of professional derma-logical grade ingredients to ensure powerful, immediate and transformational results. 

Holiday In A Bottle seems like the perfect product right about now to banish the January / February blues. It is a quick hit of healthy, sunshine-y glow for all skin tones all year round. It is a sheer wash of 'just been to the beach' colour which is available in two shades Sun-kissed & Sun-tanned. It is an instant, uplifting anti-dote for pale and indoor complexions. At first when you pump the product out you may be a little baffled as it is a grey shade with a semi-rouge consistency, however, when you massage it into the skin the tiny micro-beads burst and the grey shade transforms into a beach-glow on the skin. The shade Sun-kissed is not too dark or harsh for me personally and blends beautifully into the skin. Complexion boosters such as this are great alternative for those who don't necessarily enjoy sitting out in the sunshine, it's a tan without the dangerous UVA and UVB exposure. 

Overall, i really do like the product and it is the perfect pick me up when you need a little sunshine in your life. I don't know about you but i always feel better when i have a bit of a tan. The only negative aspect i can think of is the fact it is £28 which seems quite steep for a 30ml complexion booster, however, you literally use it sparingly to enhance your complexion, a little does go a long way. Also, the colour selection, the shades available may be too dark for very pale complexions so maybe introducing a few more would be helpful. However, i feel you could add a little moisturiser into a small pump of the formulation to make it slightly lighter to suit different complexions. 

If you would like to give Time Bomb a try you can purchase them from QVC, Very or directly from the Time Bomb website. The brand is closely linked with the same team as John Freida haircare so i am sure that you will be seeing these products in stores really soon. 

I hope you all enjoyed this summery vacation style post, it has made me even more excited about my vacations this year. I need sunshine haha. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!

What are your thoughts on this product? Would you give it a go?

Lots of Love

  1. Not sure I'd use this on my face, but I imagine it would be lovely on pale limbs in winter if the bottle was little bit bigger! x

  2. I like clarins liquid bronze!

  3. This looks so lovely, I'm desperate for summer! It kind of reminds me of one of the BB Creams I used to own (of course now I cannot remember which one it was) - kind of grey with beads at the beginning and then it kind of evolves xx

  4. Sounds like a great product but it is probably too dark for my very pale skin x
