I'm just a girl who loves to play with makeup, nail polish, and all other glamorous things. This is my retreat to obsess, and confess my makeup and beauty product addiction habits! Have a look around for my reviews, hauls, tips and tricks on all things beauty.
Not completely convinced of the necessity of a bronzer (for me), I purchased this new product hesitantly. When it comes to drugstore bronzers, I always end up with products that leave a muddied, or ever worse, an orange effect, which is not so flattering!
Because I do long for that pretty warmth that bronzers promise to deliver, I went in search of a new and improved bronzer. The Physicians Formula line has not let me down with other products, and they had a giant pink and orange display of some kind of New Pressed Bronzer boasting "Radiant Bronze Glow" and "Smoothing Finish"
The pretty packaging not only captured my interest, but was plastered with multitudes of very convincing selling points, to include:
Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation
Protects + Prevents + Restores
Long Wearing, Perspiration-Resistant, Water-Resistant
Wide spectrum of shades: Fair, Light, Medium, and Tan
And the list goes on! More great things this has to offer:
I know, right? I purchased it, and have been wearing it for a few weeks, and I have to admit, I really like this! I got it in Medium, just wanting a subtle warming glow. Because of the packaging in the store, you can't peak inside the actual compact, and I was fearful of the amount of shimmer, but rest assured, it is minimal.
Some very cool 411 about this fancy bronzer is that it is infused with many kinds of mineral based UVA/UVB protectants, which offers a high powered protection without greasy residue. It also contains antioxidants to combat sun damage and premature aging. And if all that wasn't enough, it contains tomato derivatives and licorice extract which work to brighten the skin and tone-correct sun spots.
So, what are your thoughts on drugstore bronzers? What kind of experiences have you had with them? I am a converted believer now, and am open to suggestion to try others out! Thanks for reading.
