Physicians Formula Butter Bronzers

Hey guys!

I've been so busy with house renovations the past few months I've completely neglected my poor blog :( BUT! I'm still as much a makeup fanatic as I was when I started it so I've been testing out lots of new products for you so will have lots of new posts :)

Today I'm going to talk about Physicians Formula which is originally an American brand. I first heard of the brand when I was in the states about 7 or 8 years ago but had never tried anything from them until now.

I had heard great things about their bronzers so I was eager to get my mitts on them. I did have trouble sourcing them online, most sites would not delivery to Ireland or any that did charged extortionate amounts for the shipping. I had checked the Physicians Formula stockists page to see which chemists near me might have them in store but there wasn't too many and I didn't want to waste my time driving around and not being able to get them. I ended up purchasing from a site called iHerb and was really happy with the service so I'll be using them again :)

First off the packaging on these is really nice especially for an affordable bronzer. It makes you want to get down to the beach PRONTO. There's a lovely ripple effect through the product which looks like waves and the smell, oh my god the smell is divine! Its like a mixture of sun cream and coconut. DELICIOUS!

These bronzers apply really nicely and last on my skin all day. The only problem I have with them is that there are only two shades to choose from and they are both super light. I'm pretty fair and I can use both the light and 'dark' as there's not much of a difference between the two. 

As you can see from the swatches below these are pretty light so they unfortunately won't be suitable for anyone with medium to deep skin tones :( 

Despite the colour range these are really great. The price is right (did I mention they worked out at only €12 each?!) and they sit really nicely on the skin and blend well with blush and highlight.

So I would definitely recommend Physicians Formula Butter Bronzers for anyone looking for a great Bronzer on a budget.

I'm dying to try the rest of the range. What products have you tried and what would you recommend? Leave your comments below! 

Bye beauties!
