Product Review: Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer

I am a definite fan of Physician Formula cosmetic products, so as soon as I began hearing positive reviews about their new Murumuru butter bronzer, I knew I had to give it a try myself to review.

Beauty YouTubers such as Kathleen Lights, Tati Westbrook and Jaclyn Hill have all reviewed this bronzer, and not one of them had a negative criticism about it.

I went to Shoppers Drugmart yesterday evening and picked up this bronzer in the shade ‘Bronzer’. There is also a ‘Light’ shade available. It retails for $20.00, which is a bit pricey for drugstore makeup, but Physicians Formula products tend to be higher in price because they are so diligent in the ingredients they incorporate into the composition of their products. Almost all of Physicians Formula makeup is Hypoallergenic, paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free, oil-free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist approved. I would argue that there are no other cosmetic companies in existence that can claim to be so healthy in terms of ingredients.

I did have a hard time getting my hands on this bronzer. The Shoppers closest to my house only carried it for a limited time, so be warned that it may not be in stock in the first drugstore you visit. Do not lose hope, though – this product is worth the search.

The product itself is incredibly creamy and buttery in consistency, hence its name, and it smells like coconut, which is always a plus. I tend to use bronzer as a subtle contour product for my face, meaning I apply the bronzer to a stiff, domed brush and pat it in the hollows of my cheeks. With the bronzer I was using prior to this one, which was the Physicians Formula Glow-Booster Season to Season Bronzer, I had to apply quite a bit of product to my face in order to achieve noticeable color, but with their Butter bronzer, I only needed to apply the product once to my brush. This bronzer is matte, not shimmery, and the packaging is super bright and colorful.

According to its description on the Physicians Formula website, this bronzer is aΒ “Ultra-luxurious bronzer, infused with Murumuru Butter, delivers a radiant Brazilian goddess glow! Moisturizing wonder features ultra-refined pearl and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone and deliver a gorgeous bronze finish. Ultra-rich bronzer formula instantly melts into skin, sealing-in moisture to deliver instant and lasting hydration. Incredibly creamy and soft texture combines the best features of a powder and cream bronzer, to deliver a lit-from-within tropical glow unlike any other. Infused with a powerful blend of Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, from the lush and nutrient-rich Amazon. Packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturize skin, leaving it silky soft”Β (

I would undoubtedly recommend this bronzer to anyone who is searching for a high quality product. I am 100% satisfied with it.

Give it a try and let me know how you make out!
