Physicians Formula | Butter Bronzer | Review and Swatches 

Physicians Formula has been doing the rounds a lot recently on social media and YouTube, especially this Butter Bronzer. Physicians Formula isn’t available in the UK, so I had to order this through iHerb – an amazing site which sells many makeup brands, including those not available here. I have heard only good things about this product – it blends well, looks glowy and smells amazing. I just couldn’t wait to give it a go for myself!

First up, let’s start with the packaging. The bronzer came in a foil effect box, with tropical foliage printed on it. The colours are stand out and fit so well with the theme of the product.

Inside you get 11g of bronzer, another compartment which lifts to reveal a mirror, and a cute applicator sponge. To be honest, I won’t use the applicator, as I prefer using a brush, but it’s definitely handy to have inside for travel.

As well as looking aesthetically pleasing, the bronzer also provides many benefits for the skin. It contains Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter from the Amazon in Brazil – which I believe gives it its beautiful scent (correct me if I’m wrong!). It also contains ultra-refined pearls and soft-focus pigments that are said to smooth your skin’s texture and brighten your skin tone.

I have been using the bronzer for the last couple of days now and I have to say that I already adore it. It leaves such a beautiful finish and really does make my skin look airbrushed. It blends very well and is so creamy to apply. It’s quickly becoming my favourite part of my makeup routine! The scent is absolutely beautiful – it just smells like ‘holiday’ to me – sun cream, coconuts and many things tropical.

I could bang on about this product all day and all the benefits it as for your skin. I’ll tell you just a few more facts anyway, as I really can’t help myself!

  • It also contains fatty acids and pro-vitamins to nourish your skin.
  • It can be worn over makeup or alone on the skin – imagine that glow!
  • It combines the benefits of both cream and powders bronzers, meaning application is effortless
  • It’s Cruelty Free
  • It’s simply amazing!

    This is a great bronzer but the smell is so overpowering (even though I like the smell!)
    The sponge applicator at the bottom is so rubbish! I really with PF would do away with them and make the compact more… well, compact! 🙂
    The bronzer looks great on you!
