Physicians Formula has never been a brand that really interested me, mostly because their products are on the pricey side for a drugstore brand. However, I had the chance to win quite a few of their products - mainly bronzers - through giveaways, and even though two of them turned me orange - Cashmere Wear and Bamboo Wear - one of my favorite is the Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer in Medium to Dark.
Formulated with Glow Activators, an exclusive infusion of vitamins, moisturizers and antioxidants that provide mistake-proof Triple-Action Bronze Boosting, this bronzer with benefits provides an instant and lasting tan-boost that blends and builds easily to your desired level of bronze.
L - R: one swipe and blended
While I find that one swipe of product is enough to achieve the level of tan I want, I find it easy to add a little more on specific areas without turning orange, which is great since I have the darkest shade available and I am naturally quite pale.
I quite like the cute and sleek plastic compact that includes a mirror, but don't be fooled by its size, because you are not getting that much amount of product - there is a small, flat and not so soft brush that I probably won't use, but I will keep it in case of emergency touch-ups, housed in a separated compartment underneath the bronzer.
I will admit that I was sceptical about the Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer before trying it because it just looked so shimmery in the compact, but I absolutely love how it provides an even, healthy-looking tan glow that is not completely matte, but still, the shimmers are hardly noticeable until you are in broad sunlight. This bronzer is really lightweight and glides on smoothly for a totally uniform tan.
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer is avilable in Fair to Light, Light to Medium and Medium to Dark for $21.99 for 0.3oz./ 9g.
