Review: Physicians Formula Bronze Booster

I have never quite found a bronzer I've really loved, they're always too dark for my fair skin or too sparkly or orange to look natural.  Not the Bronze Booster from Physicians Formula!  You guys, seriously, I love it.  It adds a glow to my skin but still looks super natural, unlike than the bronzer I used to use in college that made me look like a crazed Oompa Loompa.  It's not orange-y at all, has zero sparkle, and goes on really light.  

As much as I've been loving this bronzer, I am still mystified by the BB aspect.  Bronzer is supposed to be one of the last things you put on, right?  So how are the "BB Cream Benefits" supposed to get past the moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, and foundation I put on before it?  Needless to say, I have not seen better skin from using this product.  And the SPF is nice and all, but unless you apply bronzer all over (I prefer to just add color to the places that would naturally get a little glow), it could lead to unusual tanning pattern.  I haven't noticed any weird pale areas or anything, but it just seems odd to me.

So if you're just looking for a great, natural looking bronzer and are willing to spend a little more than the average drugstore price for it, Physicians Formula Bronze Booster is for you.  If you're looking to protect, moisturize, smooth, brighten, or soften, maybe just buy a BB cream instead.

I received a sample of this product as part of the StyleWatch Style Hunters program.

  1. What a great bronzer! I'm going to have to give it a try! I hate when bronzer a look orange, so this sounds perfect!


  2. I have a love/hate relationship with bronzers since I struggle with finding non-orange-y and sparkly ones!

  3. I don't really use bronzer on the regular (especially now that it's summer) but Physician's Formula was the first brand I ever used back in middle school!

  4. I always have trouble finding a good bronzer. Every so often now I use one from Bare Minerals and I like it! But I'm naturally super pale so I always have to be very careful about how much I put on.

  5. I've never found the right bronzer. I'll have to give this one a try!!


  6. If you tell me I won't look like an Oompa Loompa, I believe you. I'll give it a try. My sister tells me bronzer is necessary so I suppose it's time I listen.
