Revolution Organics Beauty Balm in Bronzed

Being pretty pale, it's taken me a long time to fully embrace bronzer.  I love how it can sculpt the face, but finding the right color - something that's neither too dark or too orange - has been a challenge.  Revolution Organics' lip glosses are already favourites of mine and I'm happy to say, I think I've finally met my bronzer match in their Bronzed Beauty Balm!

My Thoughts
I'm completely blown away by this product!  It's the first cream bronzer I've tried, and I love it.  It feels great on the skin and it blends easily, without leaving any harsh lines.  The colour is also just perfect for my light skin - it's brown, but it doesn't end up looking at all muddy.  Lightly applied, it makes the perfect natural contour and most days that's what I use it for, just blending a little under the cheekbones and around the temples.  It's sheer, but definitely buildable, so I think it would work on somewhat darker skintones as well.  It has a slight sheen, but it's nothing crazy - just enough to leave your face looking fresh and slightly dewy.  There's no actual glitter or sparkle.  Worn on it's own, I do find it disappears over the course of the day, but it's easy enough to reapply, or alternately, going over it with a powdered bronzer (or even a translucent powder) also helps it last longer.

Revolution Organics Bronzed Beauty Balm: Swatched heavily and blended out

The Score
10/10

The Bottom Line
Highly recommended!  Aside from being a fantastic bronzer, Revolution Organics' beauty balms are multi-purpose, so you can also use them on your eyes, lips, and body.  I especially like using it as an eye shadow base, since the bronze colour works well with almost any neutral look.  Pretty much the only deterrent I can think of is the price.  At $34, it's definitely more of a luxury item, but it is a great product with fantastic ingredients.  If you can swing the price, I do think it's well worth it.

  1. Looks lovely! It has actually been on my wishlist for a while (in the other shade - Sunkissed.) For that price, the quantity of product is also extremely good.

  2. That's true. I gave my mom the pink one probably two years ago and it's still going strong, even with her using it most every day!

  3. Sweet!! I can't wait to try some of Revolution Organics other products. Does this come in a darker shade or is bronzed the darkest? This may work with my skin tone but I'm not sure. Xo, Audreiana from True Beauty By Nature

  5. @Audreiana - It doesn't come darker. They just make this one, a pink and a peach. You can build it up a little, but it does blend out, so I'm not sure how it would work on darker skin.

    @Bow Tied Beauty - It's a great product :)
