Very messy, and I wouldn't really call it a bronzer so much as a body shimmer. I bought it for the bottle and was pleased that it was as generous with the product as it is. It sprays a mist of gold dust. Wasn't sure when I'd ever use it, but I like the previous reviewer's idea of spraying it in your hair.
I bought this for the super cute bottle. It sprays the powder in such a fine mist that it is only useful for my hair. And it smells nice. Does utterly NOTHING to bronze my face. This is simply gold glitter in an atomizer. an atomizer that machos my antique furniture which is the only reason I am keeping this at all. Useless as a bronzer.
