This is my must-have ev day gel bronzer! [My fave gel bronzer is Loreal Sublime (the instant stuff)], but this is also my 2nd fave coz it's so great for giving a sun kissed girl-next-door glow & contouring/as a type of blush. This isn't too runny, doesn't break me out, & is inexpensive. It does stain my hands. I love Bonne bell coz they are the most whimsical & fun DS brand. Kind of geared & market towards juveniles/young(er) consumers I must admit, but still fun! It doesn't bother me, even at my age, that I am no longer BB's prime target age range demographic. This tube lasts forever. It removes off with my Clinique cleansing balm. It's not real super shimmery/not a glitter bomb. You can use a small stippling brush (I use elf studio small stipple, the black handle one) to buff it in, working in small circles, starting out on my cheek. It dries fast so you've got to work carefully & quickly coz mistakes are hard to fix kind of. But it's just forgiving enough so that u can simply buff in more where it's uneven or fix it by blending in some more powder.

edit: Guys, try this as a lip tint! it works beautifully!!!!----This is the perfect bronzer--long-lasting, blend-able, natural looking finish, and the colour is perfect for me. And it's so cheap and easily available~ It looks so pretty. With foundation, bronzer is a necessity, because my face looks "flat" and too "done" otherwise. Also, i tan very easily, and adding this step in evens out my complexion, in case the foundation has become too light..You MUST try applying it with a blush brush, just buffing it in circles, it will be much easier to blend & distribute evenly. The end result will be stunning. P.S. I've had the same tube for about 2 or 3 years - it is still quite full, and it never breaks me out

First of all, I use this product as a gel blush NOT as a bronzer. It is beautifully pink and I dab it on my cheekbones and on my lips and on my brow bone and it gives that perfect flushed look. I am olive-skinned, so I need a bit of pink to bring my sallow skin to life and this does it for me. Better than Tarte's Cheek Stain! I bought Tarte before Christmas thinking it would replace this Bonne Belle bronzer I've been using for years and it failed! This also lasts and lasts on the skin and lips. For the price you can't beat it!EDIT - I recently rebought this and they have changed the color. It is much lighter now and no longer is very berry colored, so doesn't provide a flush to the cheeks. Darn! It was such a great inexpensive cheek stain.

At first I hated it. I am very fair skinned and this was way too dark! Then I read some reviews and mixed it in with my foundation and Its now ok. It balances out my already too white foundation from the wintertime.

Edit:Oh boo hoo!! What I realized over time is that where I apply this my skin breaks out every time. So sad to find such a great look and then discover it's acnegenic--probably the acetylated lanolinHG product--where have you been? Brownish gel has a slight pink-rose underbase, the color you get when you "get a little sun." I put it on a skunk brush and go over the areas of my face the sun hits. Leaves a beautiful finish over my ss or foundation, looks like real skin. Not matte, not shiny, dries and not easily rubbed off. Very cheap, ordered from web site along with the blush cheek gels. The perfect sunkissed color for my NW 20 skin, can build more or less as I choose. The perfect texture and finish for my summer-oily skin. And at under 5.00 a tube, what more could you ask?

I got this after reading the reviews, and because I haven't been able to find that perfect golden bronzer. I have very warm coloring, and when I tan, I tan a golden-yellow color, so I like to enhance the warm gold with bronzer. I really like the gel because it is so easy to blend, but it is very dark coming out of the tube, and if you don't blend it it can look very red-brown.. I really wish it were more golden but I haven't found it yet and it's still a beautiful bronzer.

This product has been a godsend for me! I'm a year round indoor tanner, but my face is really tan resistant for some reason, so I found myself always having to wear foundation to make my face match the rest of me. The problem is I have oily very breakout prone skin, so foundations make everything worse...enter Gel Bronze. This stuff is not the slightest bit greasy, fully absorbs in the skin, leaves the perfect natural tan glow on my face, and does not, I repeat, does not cause breakouts! I just apply a little concealer to trouble spots, set with a loose powder and my face looks flawless and polished. Bye bye foundations!

Nope, not for me. I concur with an earlier opinion that this might be for those who already have decent color or a more olive complexion. For me (light and cool toned), this showed up purple/red in the undertones. When I tried to mix it with lotion, I just got nothing. Alas, at least a fairly inexpensive bust for me.

I LOVE THIS STUFF! It is by far the most natural looking bronzer I've ever used. There is no unnatural shimmer or powdery mess. The gel is super light weight, sheer, and smooth. It dries in seconds to a gorgous shade of natural tan color. I love it because it allows you to build it up to the exact shade of sunkissed color you want, and it is NEVER greasy or dirty looking. It's 100% OIL FREE and the color lasts until you wash it off. Haha my boyfriend saw it on the counter and thought it was a sunless tanner.... when he found it wasn't he still uses all the time when we go out! HAHA He uses more than I do!

I did a positive review before, but I have to come back to say that this is more red than brown, it would be of better use as a blush.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
