Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder Bronzer


Hi ladies! I know, it seems that I keep repeating that I want to feature more makeup products on Gaby's Beauty Blog, but you know, skincare is really my first love! I figured out it would not be too hard to talk about some of the products I reach for almost on a daily basis, and one of them is Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder Bronzer - doesn't it bother you how most of Physicians Formula have incredibly long names?!

I must start by saying that this bronzer is nothing special or over the top, and if it was not for its faint 'violet' scent - which is more fruity to me - I probably would have not cared much about it at all, but I was curious. This bronzer is infused with Physicians Formula' Happy Boost Blend, which features natural plant extracts to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress - sounds gimicky, right? Well, it is - no, the scent did not provide a feeling of joy when I applied this bronzer, and don't worry, the smell is so subtle that you - or others - won't be able to catch a sniff of your bronzer thorough the day.


This bronzer is really ultra-smooth and the complementary palette of color blends together to even out skin tone with  satin finish (despite its shimmery appareance in the pan), a flawless radiance and healthy glow, although I wished it was darker, since I have to build it up for a good two minutes. Also, the little pink heart bugs me a little since I personally don't use bronzer directly on my cheek, and I really don't want a hint of pink if my bronzer is going to be applied all over my face!


I quite like the cute - but bulky - 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 am not overly in love with this bronzer since it is mostly a waste of time to me - yes it is buildable, but it is so subtle, it barely shows up on my naturally pale face without at least two applications, and at 4:45 in the morning, I really don't need this! I really prefer my Bronze Booster Glow-Boosting Pressed Bronzer, which provides a dark, natural and uniform tan with only one swipe of product.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder Bronzer is available in Translucent, Beige, Light Bronzer and Bronzer for $13.95.

  3. Physician's Formula products tends to be really hit or miss for me and I haven't had great luck with their bronzers, although they always look so cute. I do like that they included a pinky shade - it lets it multitask. Doesn't matter much if the pigmentation isn't great though!

  4. @Supergirl: Ahhh well, pretiness is not enough for me I guess ahah!

    @Rabeeyah: Thanks so much hun!

    @Catherine @ bcrueltyfree : I totally agree - I gave away a couple of bronzers who turned me orange, and I'm still not sure about this one. I agree about the multitasking but persoally, the little pink heart bugs me a little since I don't use bronzer directly on my cheek, and I really don't want a hint of pink if my bronzer is going to be applied all over my face z=

  7. For me, Physician's Formula is hit or miss. But I honestly think this bronzer looks pretty good on you. Also, did not know that it's infused with PF's special plant extract thing. That's awesome to know.

  9. LOL the name is soooo long omg!
    I was soo disappointed in this product too.
    It's pretty bad when you use 2 applications and it isn't crazy dark on fair skin!
    I don't understand the hype at all..

  10. I'm not a huge fan of physicians formula products either, I only have 2 products, an eyeshadow palette that is decent but way over priced, and a mascara that I actually really like. I think their stuff is either a hit or miss.
