I’m so sorry for being absent for such a long time. We moved into our own place last September and it took a very long time to get used to everything and to get a ‘system’ for all sorts of things to finally work. Also, I’ve been really busy working on myself lately which causes me to be even more tired than I already was. I’ve been told that you can describe it as a mental burnout.
I’ve been doubting to get off of social media for a while, but that’s one thing that seems to make me happy at the moment so I might be a little more quiet than ‘not on there’ at all. I also really miss my family in England, I know it’s not on the other side of the world but it does make me feel quite sad sometimes that I get the feeling that they miss out on quite a lot of stuff and so do I.
Anyway, I found my holy grail bronzer not too long ago on iHerb!
Do you want to know why it has become one of my holy grail products? Then keep on reading! ❤
What the Physicians Formula website says about the bronzer:
Ultra-luxurious bronzer, infused with Murumuru Butter, delivers a radiant Brazilian goddess glow! Moisturizing wonder features ultra-refined pearl and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone and deliver a gorgeous bronze finish.
Ultra-rich bronzer formula instantly melts into skin, sealing-in moisture to deliver instant and lasting hydration. Incredibly creamy and soft texture combines the best features of a powder and cream bronzer, to deliver a lit-from-within tropical glow unlike any other.
Infused with a powerful blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, from the lush and nutrient-rich Amazon. Packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturize skin, leaving it silky soft.
Featuring unique sponge applicator specially designed to be used with creamy bronzer formula.
That’s a mouth full! I’ve been wanting to try out this bronzer for a very, very long time since it’s been hyped about by a lot of well known YouTubers and bloggers. Sadly enough, they don’t sell Physicians Formula products here in the Netherlands which makes it really difficult to get your hands on it, unless you want to pay double or even triple the price of the bronzer + shipping costs. A few weeks ago I was browsing around on de iHerb website because they finally ship to the Netherlands as well and there it was, retailing for €13.23 minus – €1.80 from a discount code. It’s still pretty pricey but I was ready to pay €15 for it (including shipping)! The discount codes seem to change up quite often because I can remember paying only €14 including shipping for it.
It was here within a week or so as well, I was so excited to try out the bronzer that’s been hyped about for years!
I decided I had to take pictures of the product first so that I could write a review of it before trying it out straight away. You guys, when I opened the packaging I could smell it through the compact and it smells absolutely divine! It reminds me of long summer days where you have all sorts of nice summery perfumes hanging in the air. Or even better, it makes me think of Hawaii and I’ve never been there before! When I swatched the product it felt so, so soft and buttery. I can understand for the full 100% why they call it a butter bronzer. It’s so silky!
This bronzer applies so smooth, smoother than any other high end bronzers I’ve ever tried before, and that’s a whole lot! I can definitely understand they’ve won multiple prizes for this beauty which not only smells divine but also applies like a dream. When applied to my face I do get e whiff of the smell of the bronzer during the day and it always cheers me up.
And here you can see it applied to my cheek area, at first I was afraid the lightest shade was too light for my skin since I became quite tan last summer and I had to change out all of my foundation shades or darken them. It’s the most perfect shade ever!
Pros and cons of this product:
❤ Has a very silky and smooth texture, barely any powder fallout.
❤ Doesn’t look muddy or too dark and applies wonderfully
❤ It’s very, very affordable!
x Doesn’t retail in the Netherlands so you’ll have to buy it off iHerb or eBay which will cost you extra and makes it less affordable..
