|Physician's Formula Bronze Booster|
$18.95 at CVS in Greenwich, CT.
(cheaper anywhere else)
Have I ever been to CVS for standard drug store fare; Q-Tips, toothpaste, Advil etc... and not left with some type of beauty product???
No. Never. Not once...whether I need it or not.
I'm still not sure what the purpose of Physician's Formula Bronze Booster is. I have stopped using bronzing powder because I find it to look matte, dry, and a little streaky.
Physician's Formula bills itself as, "Number 1" in Bronzers. They certainly offer a lot of them...7 to be exact. I have no clue what the difference between them is. At least Bronze Booster stood out from the pack a bit.
I didn't expect this product to be heavily pigmented and it's not...on it's own, even in the medium to dark shade it barely registered on my skin. It does, as promised, impart a nice, looking glow and for those who wish to perk up their skin with a very light natural shimmer. Applied with a large, fluffy brush, rather than the anemic one included in the packaging, the application is completely even.
Here is how Physician's Formula Bronze Booster is described:
A Bronzer with Benefits!
Revolutionary Italian technology combines the best features of powder, baked and cream bronzers for the most stunning bronze glow. Delivers a skin-perfecting finish unlike any other bronzer, we had to call it "Deluxe"!
Luxurious, light bronze veil melts into skin providing an airbrushed lit-from-within glow that looks so natural it is virtually undetectable on the skin.
Our Exclusive Blend!
Glow Activator Technology provides Triple-Action Bronze Boosting that helps to enhance and extend the life of your tan glow and improve skin’s clarity and radiance.
I recently purchased a product from Stila called One Step Bronze. In some ways, they serve the same purpose, but One Step Bronze does impart more color and because it has a gel like consistency, I never have to worry about it creeping into fine lines.
I don't dislike Physician's Formula Bronze Booster, but I don't need it, particularly if I have another product that does the job better.
As always, I save the packaging and receipts for all of my CVS cosmetic purchases. It is their policy to accept returns cheerfully, which I truly appreciate.
Besides, they usually make out better on the deal anyway...you don't think I will just be returning a cosmetic without purchasing a new one, do you???
