The Best Bronzer For Fair Maidens

Isn't it ironic? I'm very fair-skinned, so I like using a little bronzer in spring and summer; but it's because I'm so fair that most bronzers look downright terrible on me-like I applied dirt with a blush brush. I've had an exceptionally hard time finding one that adds depth and life to my face without also adding an unnaturally patchy finish.

So imagine my delight when the new Physicians Formula Mineral Wear BronzeBrightener landed on my desk! As soon as I laid eyes on it, I could see this speckled, pressed formula is clearly different from other bronzers. And it turns out, once applied, that the not-too-deep amalgam of glow-growing colors never looks heavy or highly contrasting. My skin simply looks healthier, brighter and warmer.

BronzeBrightener is unencumbered by talc, mineral oil, dyes and parabens because it's simply and thoroughly minerals, ranging from skin-protecting mica and zinc oxide to gems like citrine and sapphire. They help provide the kind of soft-focus radiance I need to pull off the prettiest bronzer-based look, especially in the perfect-for-pale-skin shade of Light Bronzer-one of four flattering options.
