Product Review: Bourjois Bronzing Powder.

Bronzer has become a much needed, daily part of my makeup routine. Warming up the outer portion of the face whilst giving a slight definition; bronzer can warm up the coolest of skin tones.

 There has been a lot of ‘hype’ around the Bourjois Bronzing Powder, so I was so excited to compare it to Hula (Benefit, £20)- my usual go to product. This affordable, option (only £7.99), really intrigued me. So without any further ramblings, here is my product review.


This bronzer is perfect for everyone, Bourjois, have given people the option of varying different colours. I know many high end brands have created options for different skin tones, although, to my knowledge, Bourjois was one of the first to offer such a thing on the high street.

Being the colour 01(obviously, I am really pale), I found that this product didn’t make me look muddy or orange. Yet, you do only need a very light hand with it, due to the extreme colour pay off.  Overall, I can’t say enough about the colour of this product I honest haven’t tried anything else on the high street that competes with it.


I find some bronzers incredibly hard to blend. Due to intensely compacted product, some bronzers can look quite ‘chalky’- leaving a strong residue on the skin and leaving product difficult to blend. The Bourjois Bronzing Powder, on the other hand, really does blend effortlessly.  With minimal movement and a soft hand the product blends on top of creams and powders. It’s safe to say I am a massive fan!


I personally feel like many Bronzers don’t last on your skin. Although, this one definitely does. Bourjois have created a brilliant formula for their bronzer, the high street brand has found a product which is highly suitable for people who just don’t have the time or don’t want to top up their  bronzer(like me).

The only issue I have is that the product does tend to cling to dry skin. As the day goes on, the product does obviously fade, yet, it clings to dry skin- a slightly annoying trait that can be forgiven.


As you’d expect with the name, it smells of chocolate. I’ve been using this product for over a month now and the smell in the packaging hasn’t faded. Once applied to the skin the smell does fade, making sure you don’t have a chocolate induced headache.

Will I be repurchasing?

I think it’s a definite YES. The product is amazing for pale skin tones, its cost effective and I honestly don’t know why I haven’t tried it sooner.

Hope you enjoyed this little review, let me know below, if there are any other products you would like me to review.

All the love,




  1. I like that there are different shades of this bronzer! I hate it when brands assume that one shade fits all! Bronzer for pale skin is so difficult to find!

  2. I love this bronzer too! I've had it for a long while now and I still can't get enough of the chocolate smell! xx

  3. I always hear so many great things about this bronzer! The smell has always put me off trying it however, even though I know everybody says you can't actually smell it once on your skin, but I'm just not a 'chocolate' scent fan ha
