I really love this!
I'm a paler gal. I'm talking like, NC15 kind of pale.
I was shopping when I came across this little gem.
It's long lasting ( for me ) and isn't orange at all.
It gives a subtle but still noticable kind of look...like..Someone won't look at you and think you're wearing bronzer, they'll think that your skin looks smooth, your complexion looks a tad warmer, and that you have slightly defined cheekbones. Nice, eh?
The texture is soft and buttery, and that packaging is ADORABLE. And a tad bulky, but no more than a benifit blush box.
It does have some shimmer/shine, but nothing overpowering. It's pretty chill on the bling, if you know what I mean.
Overall: Great product! Easy to use, gives me the simple contor-esque look I crave that's hard to get with my ghostly pale skin, and isn't too bad on price! ( I bought mine for $7)

I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle).
I am reviewing the "Light" version of this product. This is one of the few bronzers, especially drugstore bronzers, that do not look orange on me. In fact, it is one of the few bronzers I can wear at NW10 that are still soft and gentle enough to be able to layer up. PPPs know what I'm talking about - it's nice to be able to layer on a few levels of color rather than have one layer and then have to blend it in. To find this in a bronzer, especially a drug store bronzer, is rare to say the least.
The texture of this bronzer is so nice, as well. Feels almost like a powder-to-cream. The one downside, for me, is the packaging. Like most PF products, the packaging is bulky and gimicky. If they could fix the packaging and add just a touch of shimmer (this is 100% matte bronzer), this might even surpass my HG bronzer, Tarte Park Avenue Princess.

This is a great bronzer, especially in comparison to my previous ELF bronzer. I am a light medium skin tone and I got this bronzer in light, and it works pretty well on my skin. I'm not that crazy about it, but it works well and does what I want it to do without turning me orange. I apply it with a light hand under my cheekbones, along my temple, and on the bridge of my nose, but I think it might work as an all-over bronzer, but I just use it to contour. I would recommend to anyone with light-ish skin. :)

I love the PF Cashmere bronzer, I have the regular one and I notice they now make a lighter one, I think that one might work better for me since I am pale, but this one works well as long as I apply with a light hand. Sometimes I use the brush included or else a small kabuki, I have a few bronzers but this is probably my favorite. It is shimmery and a great value. I have been using it for nearly a year and you cannot even tell it has been used much. It looks almost like new. Really great product, I would like to try the light one as well, but this one lasts so long I really cannot imagine when I will run out.

I picked this up because it looked like it'd be light enough for me. It is. This is pretty my go-to contouring powder in the winter when I'm very pale. It looks very natural and gives my face just enough dimension. I wouldn't use it as an all-over bronzer though.

I bought this in light and I'm extremely fair and warmed toned, as in I would need an NC 10 if there was one. I wanted this bronzer to contour since finding a color that isn't too dark and orange for me is difficult. This bronzer was so light I couldn't contour with it! I also didn't notice at first but there is a very faint amount of shimmer, too. I think it would work well as an all over bronzer for fair skin due to those reasons but that was not my intended purpose for it (I like rocking my fairness). I remain to give it a 3 since it could probably be used well for what I just described. It's a bit pricey for drugstore but the texture and packaging are very enjoyable making it stand out among drugstore bronzers which are, in my opinion, overwhelmingly awful.

I am a fan of Physician's Formula bronzers. I used to love the Jungle Fever one, and once it got discontinued I moved over to the Healthy Glow Bronze Organics. Spotted this in Ulta yesterday and wanted to give it a try. I bought it in light bronzer.
This is a very nice bronzer. Great for fair skin, gives a very light, natural looking tan. Not muddy or orange in the least. It really does have a smoothing effect - my face looked so smooth and even after I put this on it was almost a bit unreal.
The powder has great consistency and it lasts well. It doesn't fade or wear off poorly. I have never had a problem with any of this brand's bronzers making me break out or causing me irritation.
I think this is a great nighttime bronzer for fair-skinned girls. It looks a bit too "makeupy" for day but is beautiful for going out or glam looks. I am quite pleased with it.
Update: knocked this down to a 3 overall. I started using it as my every day (it didn't look quite as makeup-y after the first few uses) and the staying power isn't really impressive. It looks way too light (I like a very subtle bronzer, but I still want some color), and it doesn't all go onto the brush at the same level - the lighter colored "braid" in the compact wears down a lot slower than the darker bronzer part. The bronzer part is almost gone but there is still a bunch of braid left - which I guess I can use as highlighter. However, I think based on how poorly this lasted and the price, I will go back to the healthy glow bronzer.

I use this as a summer blush, and it works great! I am very happy with this.

HG bronzer for suuuure! I don't know what it is about this stuff but it makes my skin look sooooo smooth. I have left over scars from bad acne back in highschool but this stuff just smoothes it out! I've tried it out on top of almost every foundation and it just looks amazing! I even get compliments from friends, family, and even clients at my work! I hope they will never ever discontinue this product! @_@v

I had such high hopes for this, but yet another beauty product to collect dust or be given away.
I've always heard such great things about PH's products. I picked up this bronzer in light because of the claims made on the package and the super cute box it came in. I was excited because the colour was perfect. Many bronzers claim to be light, but this really is. It's a fresh peach, shimmery golden and the lightest of warm bronze. The shade really is perfect for those fair skinned. Really highlights everything and doesn't look fake at all.
However, this stuff broke me out horribly. I have never had a reaction to a powder like this before. My cheeks broke out in large cystic pimples and my forehead errupted with tiny white bumps.
I've recently found my holy grail bronzer so I'm not too chocked about this stuff, other than the $12cdn wasted on it!!!!

I bought this product after hearing good reviews of Physician Formula's bronzers and I am glad I did. I love this as an all-over bronzer for my fair skin. It blends easily and the formula is not too dry. There is some shimmer, but not too much to be off-putting.
The packaging is very cute and the magnetized flap top keeps the product from drying out. It also comes with a brush (which I don't use) and good-sized mirror on the other side.
I have already hit pan on this product and will be purchasing again!

This is a really nice bronzer for those of us scared of super dark contouring bronzers, if you just want a natural bronzer this is pretty great. Its really subtle... but in a still noticeable way (if that makes sense??) It has a tad of shimmer which is not at all overwhelming, but its not matte either.
The only con I've expirenced / this product is that after wearing it and not reapplying for hours I looked a little splotchy and the shimmer was bunching up in all the wrong places. But then I just discovered that I shouldn't put it on my cheeks... just under my cheeks and gently around my face, because my cheeks are more oily and pore-y then the rest of my face
PLUS: The packaging is adorable.... its like a little book! and the brush isn't terrible but I still dont use it... :P

I dislike the packaging, I feel like it might get broken in the diaper bag. And $13 is a bit much for a drugstore product- it seems like anymore, drugstore prices border on department store prices.
All that said- I love this. I have it in the lightest shade. It doesn't look muddy or orange on me and I pack it on sometimes. I don't use the brush that came with it, but I use my EcoTools brush and I think this tones down some of the pink in my face. And it hasn't caused any acne or other skin issues, so I'm happy.
EDIT: I bought this just before swapping for MAC Golden bronzer and I'm still using this one everyday. It's softer than Golden and I think looks more natural.

I tried this in the bronze color, and I'm going to have to take it back tomorrow because of the unnatural glitters in each part of it. I don't know what it is with physician's forumula, but every time I try one of their bronzers I end up being able to see individual glitters on my face. I love things that are sheer and even a really fine sparkle is ok, but glitter on the face isn't flattering. I wouldn't waste your money on this unless you like noticeable glitter sparkles.
The packaging is bulky, but it is really cute and great quality. I would rather have had just a regular package that's smaller and less expensive though.
I'm light-medium skin toned, and the color seemed fairly natural (apart from the glitter) , but dark enough that I would only wear it during the summer. I think I would have gone with the light bronze color for any other season.

My past experience with Physician's Formula is that the different shades in some of their products tend to run on the dark side. Therefore, even though I have darker, olive-colored skin, I decided to purchase this in the color Light Bronze. I will admit that the adorable packaging is what initially caught my eye. The box looks and feels luxurious with the cute gold tassle on the front and the sueded texture (think Urban Decay Naked palette). It's very easy to open and close (no chipped nail polish or broken nails) because the lids on the box are magnetized. Of course it comes with that tiny brush - cute but useless, and it has a mirror that you can actually see through the clear window on the bottom of the box. The product itself really does resemble the cable knit of your favorite sweater. Although this is a powder bronzer, it almost has a creamy texture to it. There is some shimmer to the peach color "cable" but when swirled with the bronze color, it does not appear on my skin at all, which I like. The packaging indicates that this has more of pearlescent finish, which is exactly how I would describe it. It does not appear or turn orange on me and I wouldn't even really describe this as giving a bronzey or tan look. It just provides a soft-focused, warm glow. PF also claims that this bronzer contains a skin-pampering formula and that it will soften, condition, moisturize and smooth you skin. I haven't been using it long enough to attest to those claims, but if they indeed prove to be true, it will just add to my already high level of satisfaction with this product. I most certainly will repurchase.

Fail...sigh. I was really excited to find this product and try it out. It was the packaging that sucked me in and the cute cable knit print but in the end it was an epic fail. I got the Light Bronzer for my NW15 skin and it turned out looking pretty orange on me. I tried by applying it first with a light hand...when it barely showed up on me I tried a second layer and it looked pretty orangey...especially in pictures. I'm sad, i really wanted this to work for me.
