It’s very gloomy outside and I guess we all want the sun to warm us with its rays. We all probably want to have a gentle flush on our cheeks…

I’ve been thinking about it while making my way through the snow banks to purchase a bronzer Smile I knew I would opt for the Physician's Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer.

According to the reviews, the brand produces stunning powders, highlighters and bronzers that look naturally on skin. More than that they are available in many shades both for fair and dark skin types.

Infused with Murumuru Butter that softens, conditions, and moisturizes skin, Includes unique sponge applicator, Hypoallergenic. Dermatologist Tested. Clinically Tested. Cruelty Free., For a lit-from-within tropical glow

Volume: 11 g

Country: Italy

Price: about $10.


The packaging is bright and luscious. Its turquoise hues make us dive into the careless world of the Hawaii seaside and the golden-bronze hues remind me of the warm sun rays. The packaging makes my day taking into account the snow storm and huge snow banks outside at the moment Smile

Moreover, the package is quality made. It comes in a thick and glossy plastic package with the name of the product embossed, which doesn’t fade over time. The cap closes securely with a click.

This bronzer consists of 2 parts. The first one is the product itself and the second one is a mirror with quite an extraordinary sponge applicator.

I’ve tested this sponge, but it’s not very convenient to use, because it’s too thick.



I love nice scents, but only when it comes to skin care products. I don’t like it in makeup actually. However, the main thing is that they have no ‘cheap’ taste about them.

The scent of this bronzer however is so nice that I can’t help telling you something about it.

It smells like a sweet and sugary coconut. I think that this scent adds to the whole product idea: beach, the sun, tan, palms and coconuts Smile



The product has a lightweight, silky smooth and finely milled texture, but its main advantage is the satin finish. It’s very beautiful, gentle and my face looks lit-from-within. My skin gets a natural tan and looks refreshed and glowing without looking overdone.

I always stayed away from these shimmering bronzers and opted for matte textures only.

As for this product, I assure you that it will always look natural wherever you use it.


I would be very careful when choosing the shade to avoid looking unnatural and overdone. It is available in two shades: light and dark.

When I was testing them in the store, I was about to purchase the dark shade, because it seemed that it was more pigmented by artificial lighting. The lighter shade seemed to me a little bit too pale. Thank God I changed my mind and bought the light shade, because now it’s perfect for my pale skin.

The shade is actually quite warm and has an orange undertone that looks amazing on my skin. However, when buying THE BRONZER, you should always keep in mind that it imitates a tan, which is always warm, except if you get sunburn.

I was always bad at describing the shades, but I’ll try to describe it as best as I can. It reminds me of a milk chocolate that has more milk than chocolate Smile



The product has a perfect, not dusty texture that can be applied with ABSOLUTELY any brush you want. It depends on your personal taste. I use a slanted powder blush for this purpose, because it helps accentuate my cheekbones very easily. Whenever I have to use it as a contouring product, I prefer the eyeshadow brush for blending to blend out the product around my nose. Plus, I sometimes use a huge powder brush for my forehead.

I’m planning my vacation at the moment and have to visit a tanning salon. So, now my skin looks quite tanned and I was afraid that this bronzer wouldn’t be noticeable on my skin, but I was wrong. It layers amazingly well. Dabbing the brush into the bronzer slightly and sweeping away all the residue, you get a lightweight coverage. Applying a thick coat even of this light shade, you get quite a noticeable coat on your cheeks.

Staying power:

I can’t fully estimate the staying power of this bronzer, because I haven’t yet tested it during the heat. But it’s OK, I’ll have such an opportunity very soon. However, now I can say that the wear time is different according to the foundation or any other makeup base. It lasts around 8-10 hours on my favorite foundation really well without any touch-ups.

But it performs worse with the NYX translucent powder, because this bronzer is constantly disappearing somewhere when I have this powder on. It doesn’t travel down my face, but disappears Smile

All in all, I would give 4 stars with a minus to this bronzer for its staying power.


Why I like the Physician's Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer:

1) It’s compact and travel-friendly. Special thanks to the manufacturer for the mirror! It’s always helpful.

2) It’s finely milled and has a very good texture that applies perfectly to my skin. It adjusts to my skin tone and doesn’t emphasize any imperfections even when applying a thick coat.

3) A nice warm shade without any clear orange undertone.

4) The product is not dusty. It’s always not an issue for me, but it can be essential for someone.

5) It is well pigmented and applies very easily without overdoing.

6) Quality packaging and divine scent.

7) The powdery textures usually dry my skin out, although I have actually a normal skin type, but I haven’t noticed anything of the kind with this bronzer, because it has a silky smooth texture.

Cool It neither goes streaky nor comes off patchy.

9) Doesn’t clog my pores or causes breakouts.


I can say only about one downside:

  • Wear time.


Overall summary:

I haven’t used anything better for quite a long time, especially for such a price. The Physician's Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer is worth every penny and even if it costed more, I would definitely pay for it.

It matches girls with fair skin perfectly for both a daily and evening makeup. It will make your skin look natural, yet brighter and refreshed.

It’s so sad I was on the fence about this brand earlier Smile


Thanks for reading my review!

Yours, Lika Smile
