Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Deluxe Edition: Review and Swatches

Hey Pandas! Summer is basically here, and I have another bronzing product to show you! 

 
This is the Physicians Formula Bronze Booster (Deluxe Edition). Fancy right? It retails for about $10, but Ulta is always putting PF on special it seems. This is touted as a “Glow-boosting, airbrushing, bronzing veil” and is in the shade Light to Medium.
 
I really like the packaging. It is a rather large disk with a gold-tone case and a bronze, curved bottom. The bronzer itself is embossed with a sun shape. I always love their packaging! This also claims to have “Glow-activating” technology. So, if you have a tan already, this will help keep it longer.
 
 
The packaging includes a nice mirror and a secret-compartment with a decent brush. This product is hypoallergenic, paraben-free, gluten free (who knew?!), oil free, fragrance free, non-comedogenic, and dermatologist approved.
 
I can get behind all of those things!
 
 
Now, as far as the formula: this is silky soft, really long lasting, and has a light shimmer to it. It doesn’t feel like you are wearing anything with it on. It leans ever so slightly orange-brown on my super pale skin, and since I (obviously) do not have a tan to speak of, I can’t comment on the glow activating technology. However, it does appear much more natural when buffed lightly onto my cheeks.
 
This is a great product! But I am still on the lookout for a matter bronzer. Any suggestions?
 
Panda Approved

  1. I think it's really pretty but, as with all bronzers, I'm afraid this one would ultimately make me look like I've gotten dipped in a vat of burnt sienna paint. Your skin tone is pretty similar to mine though, so maybe not.

  3. We do have pretty similar colors, and I promise it doesn't look like that, as long as you don't bathe in it of course. But I still haven't found the perfect bronzer…so hopefully that will be soon.
