All my life I was very careful with bronzers, because one day an orange-based bronzer played Old Harry with me. I could never understand why everyone around me says that a bronzer should necessarily be orange. My tan skin looks a little red with a hint of pink. Therefore I couldn’t find a suitable bronzer for a long time.

Now when it’s summer, I’d really like to get a beautiful tan skin tone. Thus I bought the Balm Desert for me.

I’m obsessed with the Balm packaging. There are always these pretty pin up girls that make me smile every time. For example, the packaging of the bronzer under review has a picture of a girl in a swimsuit from the 50s near the swimming pool. It reminds me of summer holidays.

The box is made of cardboard, but rest assured, the quality is good and safe even if you carry it everyday in your handbag. The cap has a convenient square mirror inside.

By the way, the bronzer weights 6.29g, which is very good for a product to use during summer, so I think it would go a really long way.


Take a dip into Balm Desert, a gorgeous staining powder blush and bronzer from theBalm! This long-wearing, fade-resistant formula is all you need for a natural, "just got back from vacation" dash of color.

I rarely come across a 2 in 1 product actually.

The product is unique due to its color, which is red with lilac and brown undertones. The product is different for every skin type. As far as I’m concerned, I use it as a bronzer only. The shade gives my skin a natural tan look.

The bronzer is dusty when applying, so I tap the brush before applying to my face.

The powder is highly pigmented and applies effortlessly with any brush.

The bronzer has a satin finish, which imparts a healthy glow and makes my skin look well ‘polished.’

I was blown away at the wear time, as nothing lasts all day against my combination skin, but this bronzer did survive and hasn't even faded!

If you also have light skin and want to get a ‘just got back from vacation’ effect, this bronzer is all you need!
