Not my favorite from Physicians's formula. I like how it is matte and how it adds a subtle warmth to my face, however it could pull kinda orange on me and made me break out where I applied it. I much prefer the Bronze Booster by PF.
I bought this almost 2 yrs ago and during the winter months I use this as an all over bronzer to warm up my complexion and it works great but if you're looking for a bronzer to use as a contour shade shade unless you're very fair it won't show up or you will need to put layer upon layer to make it visible on your skin. All that being said I won't repurchase instead I'm going to get the new PF airbrushed mineral bronzer.
I've tried almost every bronzer our there ranging from dirt cheap to very expensive. PF was a bronzer I used for years throughout high school and I did like it. Compared to others I've used, PF isn't as pigmented and I had to work with it a little more to get the look I wanted but it's very blendable and buildable. If you're someone with a lighter skin tone who just wants to add a bit of warmth to your face and don't want to spend a ton - this is the product I would recommend. I'm giving it three stars because it's middle of the road - a good basic drug store bronzer. Not the greatest I've used, but certainly far from the worst. If I was in a pinch and needed to run into a store to grab bronzer, this is probably the one I would buy.
Finally a bronzer that doesn't skew orange or dirty on my NW20 skin! It just give a nice soft glow. Thank you PF!
This is my favorite bronzer! I have a round face so I like to contour it with a matte bronzer. This bronzer works great for contouring and the shade "light bronzer" looks very natural on my NC25 skin. The amount of pigmentation is just right so that it's hard to go overboard. I also like that it has a physical sunscreen (3% titanium dioxide) built in. I used to hate that Physician's Formula powders would have a separate compartment for the brush, but now I throw the included brush away and use that compartment to store things like earrings, fake eyelashes, etc.
I've bought this twice and the lid broke both times (within the first month) so yeah, fail. Furthermore, the packaging is bulky. It's a decent bronzer but for the price I'm sure I can find a better one as I don't find this one to be very pigmented or anything special. It was about $12 and not worth it. Physician's Formula products are so hit or miss and at the more expensive end of the drugstore price scale.
Meh, this stuff is alright. Nothing special. I used this for years when I was an NC15-NC20 but now that I am an NC 35 it doesn't do anything for my skin. I now use Benefit's Hoola or Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer. Those are a THOUSAND times better than this. Don't get me wrong, this stuff is decent but that's all it is. It's very generic, nothing special, and sometimes it can pull a little orange or a little yellow. It's kind of hard to describe. It's much better then half of the other drug store bronzers out there and it isn't packed with glitter so that's a definite plus but this stuff falls short in almost every other aspect. It retails from anywhere to 14$-17$ depending n where you purchase it from. It's not a horrible bronzer, but there are definitely better ones out there even in drug stores. I usually like Physician's Formula bronzers but this one sort of fell short. It's sort of too pigmented but not enough? it's weird, and it's really powdery and accentuates the texture of my skin and hairs on my face in an unflattering way. If you pay 15$ more you can purchase Hoola from Benefit which would be an amazing alternative if you have lighter skin.
I got this at walmart for 11 dollars a few weeks ago, and since i have pinkish undertones (i burn but that turns into a tan the next day or so) I always have SPF on my face from my moisturizer to my BB cream and now my bronzer!:) I think the packaging is really cute and i dont mind paying 11 dollars for this because theres alot of product in there! as for the color it doesnt make me look orange but i do have to put a bit more on for it too show up which is fine. I dont wear bronzer on just normal days but when i go to the beach or movies this is my go-to!! If you are looking for a bronzer that isnt so harsh maybe for school this would definetly work for you!:)
Nice bronzer but shows up a bit yellow-brown on me (NW15). It isn't super pigmented, which I think is good in this case, since its hard to go overboard with it being a lighter bronzer. Works well for contouring as it is (almost) completely matte. The bulky compact sucks and the brush is useless. I like that it has spf. A bit expensive (around $12) but not too bad compared to some highend bronzers.
I am a big fan of Physician's Formula bronzers, and haven't come across one yet I didn't like. Their light shades always look natural, they have excellent lasting ability and they never clog my pores.
Solar Powder, though not my favorite, is no exception. I tried it because I was running out of my regular bronzer and thought this would be a great one for summer, since I wear bronzer all over my face and neck every day. Having SPF built into my normal makeup routine is a great bonus. This formula is a fine powder which gives fairly natural looking color, but it is a wee bit more orange than any others I have tried from PF (most of which are not orange at all). No sparkle or shimmer to this one, which is another reason I rated it just a 3, because I like a little bit of shimmer to blur the blending. This one is slightly too matte for my taste, so it doesn't blend quite as well and can look somewhat muddy/makeup-y.
On the plus side though, this one isn't just available at Ulta, it is at drug stores as well, unlike some of the other bronzers from PF which can be hard to find. Try this one perhaps if you can't remember to put your sunblock on every day, aren't too fair (I think the oranginess would be less of a problem on those who aren't as pale as I am), and prefer a matte look.
