I love this Bronzer. The packaging is awesome, though the little brush underneath is useless so I threw it away. It expensive for a drugstore product but I like it better than my department store MAC bronzer. Well worth the money.
I'm a nc20 and I put this on my cheeks and temples on my forehead to give me a nice tan glow. Small amount of shimmer but not enough to look like a disco ball.

Nothing to write home about... This is an okay product. I love whatever PF comes up with but this is just not all that. I like the healthy wear bronzer and shimmery bronzers better than this. This looks muddy on me no matter how I apply it. It is very very very brown. Although it is good that it is not orange but I was looking for something more natural in gold shade.

This bronzer is amazing, it really gives me nice tan. I would definitely recommend this bronzer to my friends. It is not expensive at all.
And it does give you that glow for the summer.

I have been wanting to buy this particular bronzer for a while but I wanted to wait until I got a good sale on it (I paid $7.50 at CVS with 40% off and a $2 coupon. Regular price is $14.99.) I am on a budget these days since the economy is tough, and makeup should not be expensive anyway.
I love everything about this bronzer. I love the color on my skin, I love how the color lasts, and I love the packaging. There are 3 different bronzer tones to choose from within the Booster grouping and this one, the Light to Medium, is the middle color. I am fair and the bronze color on me is warm and it is definitely bronzish. The powder is very pigmented so go easy if you want to. I do not see any shimmer or frost on my skin so I would say it is matte but yet you look nice and healthy and alive. This bronzer is made in Italy.
I also own 2 other PF bronzers and the Booster is my favorite. I'm actually amazed at the bronzer selections in the Physicians Formula brand. There are probably 25 to choose from. Some have SPF too.
I do have a small bronzer fetish and the Bronze Booster makes for my 6th one in my collection. I think bronzers are important to have in a makeup collection no matter what your skintone is like. Bronzers do make you look healthy and I feel you can use them all year round. Just be sure to find a good match and apply with a light hand. There are great bronzers in the drugstore realm to choose from.

Im impressed with this! I've spent alot of money on high end bronzers and none have given me any better result than this does, and for half the price.
The colour is great. I find bronzeres can easily look rusty and overdone , but shade this was really natural looking. Will definitely be repurchasing =)

I bought this to use as a contour shade and I absolutely love it! I mean, it works great as an allover face bronzer, but since there is no shimmer, I love for contouring. I am between NC20-25 depending on the time of year, and this was a great shade for me. There is no muddy or orange color and no shimmer and the color can be layered for a more intense shade. It is long-lasting and does not look fake in the least (at least on me). I don't know how I went so long without this and highly recommend to others. It comes in three shades, fair to light, light to medium and medium to dark. I think the fair to light would best be suited for NC15-20 skin, and the medium to dark for NC30 and higher.
I did pay more than I wanted to ($21.99 for DS) as it was not on sale, but seeing as how it's worked so well for me, it's going to replace my Guerlain which was 3 times the price.

This is a good bronzer, but I would wear it for summer only. It looks like a neutral light bronze color in the pan, but it is very pigmented, so I had to use a very light hand or skunk brush so it wouldn't go on too dark. It also has some fine gold and maybe reddish shimmer, which is fine for a summer blush. The packaging is excellent, it has a large mirror in the lid and a serviceable decent-size brush in the bottom.
EDIT: Too reddish and intense even on my medium-toned skin which tends to redness, so I had to return it.

This is a really good bronzer and it does a lot for me. It makes my face look awesome and I always get compliments on how sunkissed I look. Not to mention I love the packaging!

So I am NW35, yellow medium skintone, and was in the drugstore looking for a powder that would replace my foundation for the weekends, because i'm getting lazy, I want to use powder, mascara, gloss and go. As an alternative, I have been using my Avon loose powder in medium because I dont have anything else, but it doesnt cover and looks too matte. I dont own any tinted moisturizers at this time. I got this Bronze Booster in Fair to Light shade and it matched my skintone exactly, it looks like my pressed powder color. What i love about this stuff is that its not orange and not brown, just a nice beige color with gold shimmer. The shimmer blurs the imperfections and makes the pores look smaller, the beige color gives a coverage. I then use the Avon loose powder over it to tone down the shimmer where I dont need it (nose, forehead) because I have oily skin. I do blot twice a day/touch up with Avon pressed powder (in medium), but this bronzer stayed intact for a long time. This stuff is a good alternative to liquid foundation. EDIT: this bronzer gets darker as I sweat throughout the day. The glitter is too much.

i like this bronzer a lot. i wore it the other day and my friends thought i'd been tanning. on me the shimmer you see in the pan comes off as maybe a glow but for the most part this looks matte on me, when i want a matte bronzer i grab this one. i can use this as an allover face powder so i might try the next shade up next time.

Okay, so I bought this with a full rebate, which means I paid a couple of bucks for tax and postage. I don't typically use bronzer, and when I had tried cheaper versions they were too muddy on my face -- would have been good for theatre, not so good for wearing.
I've worn this a few times now, and I really like it. It's super, super subtle, but since I don't want to paint brown streaks on my face, I'm happy with that. I can use it for very delicate contouring under the cheek bones, but I can also use it on top of the cheekbones and nose for a sunkissed glow. It's really the kind of thing that I can't see when I put it on, but I can see the overall effect on how my face looks -- which is, I think, as it should be.
If I were to spend money on another bronzer (unlikely), I would probably rebuy this.

I am a pail gal so this stuff really helps me to maintain a little but of color during the summer. I don't use the brush that it came with - I use my own large makeup brush. i like the slightly shimmery effect this product gives. Also- I've used it everyday for a whole summer and I haven't yet reached the bottom of the bronzer!!!!!

Great product. I am generally a fan of physician's formula, they are good value for a drugstore product trying not to be a drugstore product. I got this in light-med, even though I am only nc15 and probably should of bought the light, but it looked too light to me and I am glad that I did because this one works well for me,
The packaging is really cute, although again with the useless brush, why do companies bother with these? no one uses them. The compact is very nice.
This product is fool-proof since it does go on light and it is easy not to overdo it. Build it up as you need to. I got this for about $12 not sure, there are frequently 40% off sales on physicians formula in ontario canada, and I got it during that plus a $6 mail in rebate that I got months ago, good deal.

I love this bronzer I have it in the light to medium color but my skin tone is a medium to tan color.
I like the fact that I can just put this on and some lipgloss & clear mascara and I'm out the door.
It has a very light shimmer to it but it's not overpowering it gives a beautiful glow to your skin.
I would definitely buy this again & it's great over tinted moisturiser.

I bought this for about $12 just to try it out, because I had a different bronzer from Physicians Formula that I really liked. I was really happy with the outcome of this. It looks shimmery, but on your skin it gives you a nice, subtle glow. If nothing better comes along, I will definitely buy this again.

I am not a bronzer person, but for the summer I decided to go for it. I found this and after reading the box decided I would try it. The box claims it will gradually tan your face kind of like Jergens Natural Glow lotions. I've been using it two weeks and cannot tell if it's working, since it is summer and I'm getting a natural tan too. But as a powder bronzer it is amazing, it actually looks tan, not orange, it has minimal shimmer, which looks glowy. I so far haven't had a complaint with an physician's formula products. I find them to be far superior to any other brand, as far a face products. I would highly recommend this, it is a bit expensive, but we'll have to see how long one compact lasts, and don't use it's enclosed brush. It'll look streaky.

I've never really been a fan of bronzer, but after watching a few tutorials and seeing how you can use it to contour your face, I wanted to try one. I checked out a few high end options, but they all seemed to dark for my fair to light skin. (I'm NW20-25 for reference.) I didn't expect to need the light to medium in this, as I thought the fair to light described me more accurately. I did slip it out of the package to see the color in the store, and decided this one would actually be better for me. The fair to light didn't seem much darker than my usual pressed powder!
This product pleasantly surprised me. I can dust it all over my face with a big, fluffy kabuki (I like EcoTools or Too Faced) for a nice, overally bronzey look, or I can use it to contour my face nicely. I might have to give some of the high end bronzers another chance, now. Additionally, I did find this to be a bit expensive for a DS product, as it was nearly $15 if you didn't have a coupon.

I bought this for $15 at CVS...which I find to be pretty expensive (though I'll likely replace it with $28 Hoola...hahah...perception is weird). This is my first bronzer...so I am nervous about the orange effect. I wouldn't say this is Orangey...but I am actually having a hard time seeing it on my face at all. I am pretty fair, and I have the light/medium shade. It is really light. And the fair shade just looked like powder! I like the low sparkle factor of this. I am going to use it a few more times (and with different brushes) before I decide yay or nay. I probably won't return it, but I most likely will not buy again.

This is a pretty good bronzer. I absolutely love bronzer and wear it everyday as an alternative to blush, so I'm always on the lookout for new bronzers to try. I was really excited about this one, and I expected it to be great because I paid about $12-13 at Walmart for it (which is quite a bit for a drugstore bronzer). I wasn't super impressed with the results after trying it, but I like it enough to wear it. The package specifically says it's not orangey, but it definitely had some orange tones in it when I applied it. I may use up the container, but I probably wont buy anymore. I definitely don't think it looks bad.

I'm a big fan of PF overall, and I've been on a search for a good low-to-no-shimmer bronzer because I realize that at least for day, it's not such a good look on me. The main problem I had with this when I was browsing, aside from the freakishly insane price of nearly $15, is you can't see the shade unless you open the package and then when you finally do, it's decieving because it looks like you get more than you do because of that brush compartment. (Reason number 453,924,208 drugstores need testers!). Despite all that it was on sale so I gave it a shot. and it is, compared to the others I own, low on the shimmer factor, and isn't too dark or orange, all plusses in my book. It is pretty subtle on my NC20 skin but I can see how some might call this muddy because it could easily go there if not applied with a fairly light hand. I can't speak for the "Boosting" properties yet since I've only started to use it, but I think it would be a nice bonus because I have lousy luck with most face self-tanners, and it would save me a step if it works. I will update if I notice anything in that regard. I would not, however, pay full price for this as I don't think it's THAT special. Not $15 special, anyway. Otherwise it's pretty nice, so unless something weird happens as I continue to wear it, I'll use it up but I won't repurchase. Sorry PF, I still love you but you are getting a bit too pricey for anything except BOGOs these days.
