I think my favorite makeup items are bronzers. I love the beautiful, luminous glow that bronzers give your skin and how they can make your skin look healthy. Because of this, I’m always on the hunt for a nice, affordable bronzer. When combing through the isles of the drugstore looking for bronzers, I always seem to stop by Physicians Formula. Not only do they have eye-catching packaging, but their products are also organic and cruelty-free, which is ALWAYS a bonus in my opinion. However, even those these bronzers can be found in the drugstore, they’re a little on the pricier side and usually range from $12-$18! In this post, I hope to save you the hassle and money by providing a comprehensive review comparing 4 of their bronzers. Let’s get started with today’s BREAKDOWN.
What a mouthful! This bronzer claims to give you a skin perfecting finish, melt into the skin providing a glow-from-within, extend the life of your tan glow, and improve the skin’s clarity and radiance. So given this description, I had somewhat high expectations. Overall, I feel like this bronzer does make my skin look more radiant and it’s pretty but boy is this bronzer shimmery! This product did come with a glittery overspray when I first bought it, which does go away, however you’re still left with a pretty shimmery cheek product. This is not my go-to bronzer for the day time, since in the sun I look like a disco ball with this on, however, it gives a nice glow when I wear this at night. This bronzer is also a bit on the orange-y side, so I’d recommend going with the lighter shade of this bronzer if you have a fair complexion.

Conclusion: My favorite is definitely the pH Matchmaker Bronzer. Although I do like the first two bronzers, they are a little shimmery and for some people, that might be a deal breaker. They’re also not must-haves, but something I like to keep around and wear when I feel like wearing a bronzer with a bit more glow.
But Morgan…is it worth the money?
For how long these last, Yes. I would definitely try to buy them when they’re on sale though. Ulta always has promotional coupons you can use on these products and I’ve noticed every once and while, CVS will have a 40% of Physicians Formula makeup. So keep your eyes open for those! Also, Physicians Formula products sometimes have a coupon right on the packaging that you can use when you buy it!
Have you ever tried any of Physicians Formula Bronzers? Do you have any other personal recommendations of other Physicians Formula products?
