While cleaning/konmari-ing/organizing my makeup situation, I’ve had the chance to come across some oldie but goodie beauty products that I haven’t used it a bit but do deserve a second chance. I’m enjoying these then and now reviews, and today I’m re-reviewing Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer and Physician Formula Butter Blush.
When I first reviewed these products in 2017, I gave them both a B. I liked them, but they didn’t quite show up on my medium olive toned skin and I was disappointed! Everyone else seemed to like them, but that bronzer was like nothing on my skin!
Since then two things have happened: 1) My opinion on the Bronzer (named Bronzer) has not changed. It still looks like nothing has transpired when I apply it on my face (in the shape of a 3 or an E); 2) Physicians Formula has drastically increased the range of the murumuru butter-enhanced bronzer shades available, so there’s hope I’ll find one that’s better suited for my skin and I’ll make a point to do so.
When it comes to the Blush, Physicians Formula has also added more colors to the range. Back in my original review I thought that the blush, Natural Glow, was more suited as a highlighter,and now I concur with that thought. It’s actually a gorgeous, gorgeous highlighter and the texture is incredible. It’s very smooth and indeed buttery. It feels more like a cream that has excellent staying power on my normal to oily skin.
Yesterday while on a walk with my son we got caught in a rain storm! It wasn’t unexpected – a rain cloud emoji was present in my Weather app on my phone – but by the way the sun was shining I really thought we’d make it through our walk unscathed. I misjudged, but it’s okay! We finished our walk by jogging through the rain and it was really quite invigorating. Also, the Physician Formula Butter Blush wore like iron! I’m so impressed and will take this out of my makeup archives to rejoin the land of my most used products.
My Final Thoughts: My original review stands and I’m looking forward to exploring the other color choices available in both the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer and Physician Formula Butter Blush.
