I love bronzer. I wear it all year round to give my skin a natural looking sun-kissed glow. In my opinion, a great bronzer is the easiest and least expensive way to give yourself the sun-kissed radiance you are looking for without laying in the sun for hours. The best healthy glow.
There are tons of different kinds of bronzers out there: creams, sticks, powders, even gels or bronzing drops. They are all great in their own ways and I love them all (with the exception of loose powder bronzers… way too messy for me!). I was never into cream bronzers until I tried this one (my shade is light bronze) from Saie Beauty. I’m not saying this lightly – it is THE best bronzer I have ever tried, and maybe my favorite beauty launch of the entire summer… it’s just so pretty on! It gives you the most perfect even healthy glow. I like that it is natural and created with only clean ingredients… good for the body and the environment too. I do still love a powder bronzer (Benefit Hoola will always have a special place in my heart) but this cream bronzer is just the greatest.
While I have you, these are my favorite cream blushes!
The Best Natural Cream Bronzer
First of all, you already know how much I love Saie Beauty. I talk about this brand all the time but their products are just incredible. They are (in my opinion) one of the best clean color cosmetic brands out there… every time I try something new from them I’m impressed and this bronzer is my newest favorite.
Besides making high quality products, they are really focused on doing the right thing. They are completely cruelty free and free of toxic ingredients. They don’t test finished products or ingredients on animals. And neither do their suppliers or any third-parties. They also don’t sell their products where animal testing is required by law. They are not completely organic or 100% natural but use many certified organic ingredients. If you look at their ingredient labels, you’ll see that they call out organic ingredients.
This will be wonderful on all skin types. I have dry skin, and find that my skin really likes the texture of this bronzer. I would recommend applying it after a primer (love this one!) to make it last a little bit longer! A pro tip I learned is that if you have dry skin, a good primer can really help prevent your skin from drinking up cream formulas like bronzers and blushers… they’ll last much longer!
This is my absolute hands down favorite bronzer right now. Again, my shade is light bronze which gives me a really gorgeous natural glow. I think it would work well on medium skin tones, or you can go up one shade. It delivers the most beautiful natural bronze and it it is so easy to apply. And the cream formula feels amazing on your skin… and it lasts forever. It has a matte finish (no sparkle or shimmer) and just looks really, really natural!
Again, I wear the “light bronze” shade which I believe is their lightest shade. I love that they have a bronzer for every skin tone. Light, medium skin tones, dark skin tones, there is a shade for everyone.
I am never the person that will tell you to buy the brush. I never buy specific brushes to go with specific products. But in this case, buy the brush. It will be the best $25 you spend, especially if you use other cream bronzers, blushers, etc. I find it really helps the product to blend seamlessly into the skin.
I did want to include a runner up that I also like.
I really like this one too. Using the Saie one gave me the confidence to try this one (again, was just never a big cream person. It’s also great with the buffing brush). The big difference between the two of these is that the Saie gives you a matte finish whereas this one contains illuminating particles (mica!) so it also has some shimmer! It will give you a natural sun kissed glow but with a little added glow. Milk makeup has a good one too!
PS – I also really love Saie’s products for glow – check out this review!
