Product Review: Afterglow Organic Glow Bronzer

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Afterglow
Name: Organic Glow Bronzer
Size: 0.21 oz /6 g
Price: Approx. $18 USD

Shade Tried: Deep

A loose mineral bronzer that comes in light, medium and deep complexions and can be used on the apples of the cheeks, or as a contour. The colour bronzes the face leaving a warm, glowing look to the skin without the orangey color of traditional bronzers.

I'm not really a fan of bronzers only because I couldn't be bothered to "fake" a tan other than to use self-tanners to even out tan lines. However, I have started using bronzers on my face to give myself "cheekbones", which works really well since I have no cheekbones.

The sample of Glow Bronzer that I received was too dark for me (I would do well with the Light shade) but I did try it out anyway as a contour powder.

To Purr About:
- powder is soft and light
- after application, I couldn't feel the product on my skin at all
- made with "certified organic botanicals" and is "free of synthetic dyes, preservatives and fillers
- wide jar is easy to dip my brush into
- a little goes a long way, so the price isn't too bad

Claws Out:
- none really

Final Comments:
I have actually stuck to this bronzer as a contour, but only because it's summer and I'm darker than usual. I probably wouldn't be able to use it during the winter, when I'm really pale.

Afterglow makes a whole line of mineral cosmetics and is available online and in select stores. You can check them out at http://www.afterglowcosmetics.com/ (a store locator is available on their site)

I just wanted to tell you that I got my Burt's Bees prize from your giveaway. I love the Radiance lip shimmer and the Radiance night cream. I am on my way to post on their site (and will mention Cinnamon Kitten!). Thanks a bunch!
