    Bronzer

    I couldn't agree any more with the negative comments. I used a Physicians formula one and thought reading through the package that it was really good for my skin. However, I soon came to realize that as I used this product more I had small pimples appearing on my skin. My bronzer also had glitter in it which just made my skin more glittery as opposed to glowing. The product did not live upto its e...read morexpections which were written on the box. I definitely would not recommend regardles of acne prone or not skin. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Agree with the negatives...

    I like the idea of an SPF 50 bronzer, really, and decided to try it out after it was recommended in Seventeen magazine. Well, I've really got to stop trying products recommended by them because none of their recommendations ever work out for me! This bronzer always comes on as a bit too orange and not enough "bronze" (actually, maybe more than a "bit" orange). I tossed the brush that it comes with...read more because it just picks up too much of the bronzer and deposits it all in one place, leaving a big orange mark that cannot be easily blended. — 2 years ago

    Great matte bronzer

    I've been using this bronzer for almost a year applying it daily all over my face and I didn't hit a pan yet. I have a fair skin and usually use the lightest shade (or the next one after that in a summer) of the face make up. I have this product in Fair and it gives my face a natural sun-kissed glow when I apply it with not a very dense fluffy brush. It also is great for contouring. It's perfectl...read morey matte, so you don't have to worry about that unnatural glittery sparkles that are in many bronzers. Also SPF 50 is great! — 2 years, 5 months ago

    Solid Bronzer

    I like this product. 20 years old, fair skin that tans easily, oily/combination skin. Long lasting/ keeps shine at bay. Looks a littleeee orange sometimes, but that's because I buy I buy medium/dark, and even then, the color is quite natural. Second favorite bronzer ever tried next to Physicians Forumula bronze booster — 2 years, 7 months ago

    Excellent natural looking bronzer for NC35/NW30 skin

    As someone of Asian descent in her mid-30s with truly classic combination, acne-prone and somewhat sensitive skin, I'm always looking for a bronzer that doesn't call attention to the oiliness of my T-zone, that doesn't leave me looking dry and powdery, does not settle into fine lines, does not cake around my acne scars/peeling skin, and does not irritate my skin or clog my pores, but instead leave...read mores a soft natural-looking glow. This surprisingly did the job fantastically. In fact, I prefer it to the NARS Laguna/Orgasm bronzer/blusher duo. This PF product is very soft and powdery, and while unsettlingly at first (no pun intended), I came to realize that this is a really good thing. It's not streaky and makes me look like I have a nice healthy glow from getting an hour of afternoon sun (without actually having been in the sun). There's hardly any shimmer - it's very, very fine, so not noticeable at all once it's on your face. (I don't like seeing sparkles on my face as I work in a professional office environment, and this doesn't leave any obvious shimmer on your face). Just looks like I have a soft natural glow. I used the bamboo wear kabuki from PF to buff it on and found that it did the job perfectly. I got the "Fair" color, and the color is perfect for my NC35/NW30 skin - doesn't look too dark and looks very natural. This is my go-to product. And like I said, I use this, rather than NARS! — 2 years, 9 months ago

    breakout

    Got this with my bf over vacation, and as soon as I put it on we both agreed it was way weird looking, sparky, orange tinted, hard to get out the product to transfer from compact to brush to skin. !!!!!Worst of all I broke out everywhere in blackheads!!!! Ive never reacted to a product like this one, and I could have just gotten a dud but it came in a promotion pack with the foundation & bronzer - threw them both out;for $15 I could have gotten something sweet on vacation. — 3 years, 6 months ago

    Great bronzer

    I really love this bronzer--the color is good and even when applied with a large brush, and I love that it includes SPF 50 in the powder, an extra bonus on top of my SPF moisturizer. — 3 years, 9 months ago
