I am PPP, and I'm always on the lookout for a bronzer that doesn't make me look fake, but gives me a little more warmth. Bronze Booster in Light/Medium is a great option. I was scared of the "booster" part because I've never had much luck with fake tanners, but I haven't noticed any change in my skin tone and I wear this over foundation or on bare skin pretty regularly. Unlike a lot of PF bronzers, this isn't too orange or sparkly--just a good, finely milled, warm tan, mostly matte powder.

First of all I hate the products that but the brush underneath so that really you get no product for the price...it's so deceiving. I found it too glittery on the skin and a very orange shade compared to my normal bronzer. I took it right back to the store and actually bought cover girls mineral bronzer which I like much better and it was over $5 cheaper!! It was recommended to me by the girl at the counter and I really like it's natural and glowing look!

I bought Med-dark, and since I don't feel like starting a new link for that shade I'll just give some thoughts about it here. I did open this color and find it more of a highlighter than a bronzer. It does work better for fair skin, since most shades are going to be too dark. I have to buy a universal color for clients and med-dark just seems more like a real toasty bronzer since Summer is not far away and medium girls like to tan. It's actually light compared to most brands. Alot lighter... I see muddy colors all the time. One thing that bothers me is the compact. Nice to look at and with two compartments, but the pan itself moves inside the compact. Which makes me wonder if someday mine will fall out or break. Perhaps they used rubber glue? I do love the holograph effect on the top. It looks good and like a higher end product. The texture of the bronzer is smooth and it blends well, there is a slight shimmer.

Oh my this is a gorgeous bronzer, I would compare the quality to Guerlain blonde. I noticed it was manufactured in Italy where most of my favorite bronzers come from, I know it's possible to share manufacturers and with the quality of this especially for a d/s bronzer you have to wonder. This is a very subtle bronzer with a very subtle shimmer, almost impossible to overdo which is one of the reasons I think it's so great.

I actually have this in medium-dark, which isn't too dark at all considering i have light asian coloured skin (I wear NC35 in MAC). It gives me a fresh natural glow with just the slightest hint of shimmer. Although I still like Guerlain mosaic bronzer for brunettes much more, the price difference is huge. Great results for the price!

I have this product in both shades for my kit, and have a compact all for myself. I love it on all skin types! Very pretty, though I don't notice a cumulative effect. It has dihydroxyacetone in it, but it can't be very much.
I am normally very pale, but spent two months in Miami this winter. I started with the light-normal then switched to the normal-dark, as I got a little darker in the sun. Whenever I have worn it, pale or tan, people compliment my complexion.
It has very little shimmer in it, which tends to look cleaner on adult skin. The only bronzers I can compare it to in quality are Bobbi Brown, though hers are matte. I recommend!

This review is for the medium dark shade. I'm an avid retin-a and sunscreen user so my skin is on the light side of medium. I'm constantly in search of a good bronzer to fake a tan. I happened to find this bronzer with a 'try me free' sticker so I thought it couldn't hurt. Turns out I may have found my perfect bronzer.
This bronzer comes in a double level compact; first level contains bronzer/mirror lower level contains an aerated brush holder and useless brush. The color appears quite light but once I dust it on with my skunk brush I get a troipcal glow that just melts into my skin. The result looks like I've been on the beach for a long week and have just the smallest hint of sun flush. This is a matte bronzer, no sparkles, no muddy mess, no reddish tint, just gorgeous color that becomes my skin rather than sitting on top. I was actually sadly surprised at the gym when I popped out of the shower to my usual pale face, the color just looked that natural. Overall a great product.

I love this bronzer so far, although the ingredients don't thrill me. I don't have my mind set 100% on this one yet because I have noticed some breakouts, but I am still going to give this time as I am not sure what is driving these small breakouts yet.
However, this product goes on light. It's easy to build the color. And it made my pores look smaller (I have been using BM warmth and PurMineral Glo). It does make me look a little shiny, but I just put a mineral veil over it and it seems to work out just fine. The color is amazing! Not too orange, not streaky and easy to blend. Just be careful not to put too much on because it can get too dark if you're not careful. Hope this isn't the cause of my breakouts because I love this bronzer and would hate to give it up!

I wanted to love this, but I didn't :(
I actually have this in the darkest shade, not the light to tan but my skin is generally darker so I felt the light to tan would be too light. When I put it on, it was somewhat orangey. AND it made the pores on my cheek near my nose SO HUGE! I had never seen them so big before... It didn't blend well. I tried putting on just a tad one day, and then tried a little more the next, and then a little more the next. The more you put on, the muddier your face looks. It also made my face smell weird. Perhaps I'll have the try a lighter shade...

This one gets a big "no" from me. It is quite glittery. Not glowy, not "slightly" shimmery, glittery. Lighting matters and in many situations it does look glowy. But in others it's time to disco down. The color is very nice, not orange at all. But I can't walk around with a sparkly face all day. Back to the Solar Power bronzer for me.

This bronzer is amazing! I picked it up 10 bucks, though it retails around 15. It's definitely more then other drugstore, but well worth it. It really reminds my of the Gurlain bronzer, but more affordable. It leaves the best looking "I was in the sun for hours" look. It's very natural and believable. I have pretty sensitive skin, and this didn't leave any irritation. The packaging is very cute, though a bit bulky. I would buy this again and again!
For reference, I got Light-to- Medium and wear NC25 in MAC

Great color, very nicely pigmented. Not muddy brown or orangey tones, almost like a warm beige. Looks very natural and easy to layer for deeper color. Also, since there is the slightest *hint* of shimmer, it prevents that flat, matted-out look of a powder. Never makes you look shiny either, just adds a natural glow to skin. Doesn't interfere with the dewy look I try to achieve with my creme blushes (as most matte bronzers do). Such pretty tones, I love the packaging. Definitely reminiscent of Guerlain, both in packaging and product--can't tell the difference product wise. Would definitely repurchase.

I just bought this today. I have so many bronzers, I really didn't need another, but there was a "Try Me Free" rebate sticker attached to the package, so if it's free...I'll try it out!
I really love this color, I didn't even open the package to check the shade, since drugstore bronzers are all about the same color. This one is very nice because it's a very light shade of tan. I'm very fair, so it looks "right" on me, unlike regular bronzers which can look obvious, if I don't use them with a light hand. The packaging and the powder is absolutely luxurious looking for a drugstore product! I really like this one and I think this will be my "go-to" bronzer for now!

What a great product from Physicians Formula. This bronzer is actually better than the Guerlain Tan Booster formula - its more golden (not orange or red) with just the right amount of sheen. The texture is very much like dept. store brands - smooth, easy to blend and doesn't change color. Even the packaging doesn't look cheap. It is $15, which isn't CHEAP, but its worth every penny.
