PRODUCT REVIEW: PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER !
Little side story: EVERYONE on the beauty world was raving about this Physicians Butter Bronzer! So I went to my local drugstore picked the darkest shade available in (Bronzer) and put it to the test for a whole month. The verdict? AMAZING and here's why.
So first let me tell you a bit about this product. This is a cream bronzer that transforms into powder upon application. Is infused with 3 different types of butter: Murumuru, Cupuaca and Tucuma making this Bronzer truly buttery and soft to the touch. And as described on their website, It has ultra refined pearl and soft focus pigments that deliver a Brazilian goddess glow and well... Let me just say I completely AGREE ;).
PACKAGING: Very colorful and so much fun! The whole theme of this Bronzer makes you dream of palm trees and sandy white beaches. It screams summer and it smells like summer. The scent is a lovely mix between coconut, (old school sunscreen) and a drink of Piña Colada. I personally LOVE IT, but I also know it can be a bit overpowering for some people because the scent is pretty strong.
THE FORMULA: This Bronzer has the most lovely creamy texture. It immediately melts into the skin delivering an instant bronzed look with a hint of hydration. It gives that NATURAL glow from within.
THE SURPRISE: After several uses I've notice the Butter Bronzer performed exactly the same as the very well known CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel. Surprised ? Well me too, because I haven't heard a soul comparing these two and maybe it's because the two shades are quite different. (The butter Bronzer is way more neutral while the CHANEL is warmer and a bit orangy) So no! These are not close dupes in color but these are exact dupes in textures. They both transform from cream to powder upon application and they both have the same unique creamy feeling.
Two other noticeable differences? the scent and the price point, off course. The Butter Bronzer is $15 while the CHANEL Soleil Tan de Chanel is $50 usd. I love my CHANEL bronzer but I also understand not everyone has or wants to spend that kind of money on a bronzer, so this a pretty dam good drugstore alternative. I promise.
WHAT I LOVE? Everything! This bronzer truly lives up to its name- it is BUTTERY. It feels silky-smooth to the touch and it seems to “melt” effortlessly into the skin.
The finish? A beautiful satiny but not shimmery bronze-golden beige that doesn't look orange on the skin. I love the fun and lightweight packaging and actually don't like the weird sponge that comes inside but my favorite part perhaps is the scent ... Im obsessed! This Physicians Butter Bronzer adds just enough color to give me a slightly sun-kissed, healthy glow!
