Review: Gosh Bronzing Powder 02 Natrual Glow


To me this is the best bronzer I have ever used, it is perfect if you are pale because it is lighter compared to most bronzers on the market and has no orange effect, I have used it on a medium tone skin and it looks just as lovely. If you like the tone of Benefit Hoola but find it a bit too dark this is literally the next shade down. It has this pretty glow to it but zero shimmer or sparkle so great for contouring. Below I swatched it next to a popular higher end bronzer Benefit Hoola and a drugstore favorite Rimmel Natural Bronzer in 22.

Preheat your oven to 350F/175C and grease your pan around an 9" cake pan. Square or circular

Place your oats in a blender and give them a good whizz grind them so there looking more like flour you still want them to be a bit coarse

Place the rest of your ingredients ( except the walnuts) in the blender and blend, you may need to add your banana in batches depending on your blender, you don't want the banana at the bottom to get to over blended this will make the cake gummy.  Blend just until the mixture is incorporated around 15 seconds.

Take the cake out of the oven and let cool at LEAST an hour, if you cut it or eat it before it will be wet and gummy. Slice how you like it and enjoy!
