Love it! It gave me a healthy glow and I Iove the ingrediants. You also can't beat the price. I will repurchase.

I have had this product for about 3 days, and while I agree with the other reviewers this is a difficult powder to get enough on the brush, I actually have come to find that refreshing.
I am so used to powders that fly everywhere once you sweep the brush across them that getting a small amount of powder on the brush from this product, at first, frustrated me. Then, I thought, "well, I have always hated how much powder comes off most compacts I purchase, isn't this what you have been looking for?"
I got this in Translucent Glow not knowing what color would be imparted to my skin, I don't notice any, even at the end of the day. It does impart some glow to the skin, but I am okay with that since I hate all matte anything.
One of the main reasons I got this was because of the ingredients. I have become an ingredient hound, and because of my oily skin, I need something that is going to help control oil while not giving me too much of a matte look to the skin - this does it beautifully.
My skin is also acne-prone, and this has not caused a break-out for me, although I think it is too soon to tell. If it does, I will be back to edit my review.
All in all this is a winner for me.
ETA:8/20/11 - I have lowered my rating on this product. Although I think it has potential to be a good product, the product ended up hardening in the pot making it difficult to get out - never a good thing for a product to do. I have since found other products that work better.

It did not do anything for me. I could hardly pick up any product out of it. It was a waste of money for me.

I have had good luck using this. It applies well for me and wears great all day long. I do not have any problems with application or this turning oily. This is a subtle enough color to give my fair skin a healthy glow without looking "fake" or too bronzed. I would repurchase this-but not as a daily wear.

CRAP. the advertising and packaging looked good, it was super hyped up, and the "mineral" garbage sold me. it looks pretty in the container, but you can't get it onto your face. run your brush over it & it picks up nothing... it's too chalky, stiff and dry. at first i thought the shade i picked was too light, so i returned it for the darkest one. still a waste of time. the only way to get it on is to dig lines through it with a tweezer or something and try to apply the loose powder, but that ends up looking cakey and patchy on your face. the worst of all PF bronzers. seriously. buy any one but this.

I couldn't get this to "work." It didn't do anything at all for me. I also hated the bulky packaging, it's about twice as thick as it needs to be, and looks cheap. I returned it, don't miss it at all.

Their products are so confusing. So many of the same thing, but with different names. I have I assume this is for the new one that the photo on the upper right is for. It is the silver domed plastic compact. It says "Mineral Wear. Talc free. 100% Mineral Bronzebrightener Bronxer." Quite the mouthful! So my review is for that one.
I find this bronzer to look very fine and glowy, BUT after a few hours, my face turns into an orange shiny oil slick, as the product starts to actually move and slide around on my face! I am blotting every 20 minutes. I do have an oily t-zone, but this is ridiculous. So it looks nice for a while, but obviously not for me. Too bad I didn't return it to London Drugs. It is too late now. And I paid nearly $20! Too much for a drugstore product, that has no staying power. Too bad. And to add to that, I have never had any luck with Physicians Formula products. I will finally stop wasting my money now.

I bought the peach glow one and find that with a light touch, it does wonders for my skin! I also use it as a blush and find that the colour is perfect for my NC30 skin. I don't like the accompanying brush at all, but it's not a big deal - I use my own kabuki brush. I paid $23 CAD for this at SDM - a bit pricy for a drugstore brand.

OK this "bronzer" is $15 after tax! Ridiculously priced for something from a drugstore in a cheap plastic packaging. But i was fine paying this much because it sounds promising: all minerals, no oil, talc, fragrance, etc. But that's all there is. I got the "medium glow" to use in place of my pressed powder. It looks very light in the package. The mosaic dots of different beige colors look rather promising. I thought it would create a glow to my face. I was excited! Then when i applied it on my skin, it was very orangey and blotchy. It was hard to see where i'm applying because the texture of this powder was very stiff. It's hard to explain but it doesn't look very pigmented. Yet it left blotches of yellow/orange color on my fair-medium skin. At that point, i already applied my eye makeup. So i didn't want to wash my face and redo my makeup. So i use a no-rinse towelette to wipe off the powder. Oh boy! It took me a long time to wipe it off. It seemed to never come off. Yuck. I returned it right away to the store. Very disappointed!
