Bronzers are my most beloved makeup item. I´m actually pretty pale on my face when I take my makeup off in the night. I do not like self tanners because of the smell- but bronzers! I love them! So today I like to present you my 5 favorite cruelty free bronzers from the drugstore!

The Sonia Kashuk Bare Minimum Pressed Powder Bronzer is super gorgeous. The big "S" on it gives a golden glow without looking fake. Cute packaging! Perfect natural looking tan with this one! 

The Physicians Formula Bronze Booster is another favorite of mine. It even contains an SPF of 20! Remember: you can use that included brush for contouring. Even though I can see some tiny flecks of golden sparkle when I look on it up close- I do not notice any glitter when I apply it on my face. Absolute gorgeous summer tanned skin with this! Amazing! (Under $10 on Amazon!)

The EDDIE FUNKHOUSER Ultra Definition Bronze and Sculpt Powder is a very new discovery of mine. So super gorgeous! All in there from a highlight to bronzers to blush- you can even use this as eyeshadows! Absolutely gorgeous and very unique!

A fabulous trick for an affordable bronzer is to use simply a powder foundation and choose a very dark color. I love to use the Ulta Powder Foundation in "Warm tan". This color is perfect! Very comparable to the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil- with the exception of the gorgeous chocolate scent but therefore you can get it (ON SALE) for $5!!! I recommend this highly!

Update! Wet n Wild is selling in China and therfor no longer cruelty free! :-( 
Last but not least: I love my Wet n Wild Coloricon Bronzer in Bikini Contest! Yes, it has a bit orange under tones- I would not recommend this for very pale skin- for me though it looks absolutely gorgeous fresh summer tanned- as if I just took a walk on the beach. I also love how huge the pan is!

And it smells fabulous like summer and coconuts! It contains an SPF of 15 (though I would not rely solely on that and always apply a sunscreen under it). Under $5? WOW!!!


I just did my very first collab on YouTube with the gorgeous Melissa Rodriguez! You can watch my favorite TOP 5 drugstore bronzers on my channel and on her channel her TOP 5 high end bronzers!
