Welcome back to the blog beauties. I hope you are having an amazing start to your week. Today I want to share with you what may be one of the best drugstore finds I have made all year. We are talking about the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. I have been a longtime fan of Physicians Formula face products and have over the years found many products from them that I can’t live without. This has now joined those ranks. Let’s take a look!
Packaging: This whole product has a very tropical vibe to it and the packaging is no different. I love the palm fronds on the front and the green colorful tone. Physicians Formula has a reputation for making beautiful but bulky packaging so this is no different. It is gorgeous but a bit large. When you open the product there is bronzer on the tip and you lift that up to reveal a sponge type applicator and mirror. I do like the mirror concept however I wish it was on the top because you have to open and close in order to pick up product and then apply.
Color Range: This product comes in 2 colors Bronzer and Light Bronzer. I went with Bronzer which works well for my fair skin. I will say that if you are a deeper medium or deep tone they don’t have an option for you. I do wish they had one shade deeper because even the Bronzer is still a fairly light color. However, if these colors work for your skin tone they are gorgeous. They look very natural and are not too warm.
Formula: This is the reason I really love this product. As the name suggests it is such a buttery and smooth texture. I just love how it glides on the skin without looking patchy. It just feels almost creamy to the touch. It gives a very natural bronze to the skin but doesn’t lean too warm so it looks as if you have that natural color from the sun. It is a matte bronzer as well. I find that it wears well all day and blends out beautiful. It doesn’t make my skin look patchy or muddy. The product is also infused with different nutrient rich ingredients like MuruMuru Butter and Tucuma butter. The formula is hypoallergenic, paraben free, oil-free, and cruelty free!
DISCLAIMER: This product though it is wonderful does have a pretty strong scent. Not a bad scent. It reminds me of pina coladas but if you are sensitive to that sort of thing you may want to be wary. It doesn’t linger once applied but it does have a tropical type smell.
Price and Availability: Most places have it priced at $12-$15 but you can often find sales on Physicians Formula at the drugstore. I have seen it at most drugstores namely Riteaid, CVS, and Walgreens in my area. It is also available to order on Ultas website as well as Physicians Formulas website.
Recommend: Yes yes 100X YES!!
