Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream; The Perfect Contouring Tool?

IMG_5120 IMG_5122 IMG_5123 IMG_5124 Spring summer cream makeup

I'm all about the natural bronzed look so as soon as I saw Alix from I Covet Thee using the Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream in her recent Glowing Skin/ Bold Summer Lip Look video I knew I had to get my hands on it. The look she created using this product was so natural and warm; perfect for the paler skin tones like me! I like to add a bit of warmth to my face and this stuff allows me to build up the bronzed effect however I want. I apply this using my Real Techniques stippling brush which I think is the perfect tool; It allows you to really blend the product into your skin without overloading and helps create a really flawless contour effect. 

As you can see from the swatches above, this stuff comes out of the barrel pretty dark and takes a while to blend in. But perseverance is key! Once rubbed in it provides you with the perfect glow. 

I think this is going to be a summer staple for me; I might even use it all over my face if I manage to get myself a tan! Especially as it has SPF15 which is something I look for whenever I'm shopping for a product I'm going to be using on my face. 

Have any of you tried the Bourjois BB Bronzing Cream? If so what did you think?

Lots of Love,



  1. I haven't, but I have tried the Honey Bronze Bronzing Gel from The Body Shop just yesterday for the first time and I guess they are sort of similar? I really like that one! ^^

    Lovely post! x

  6. Oh wow! I think this might be to dark for my pale skin but it sounds amazing!! I've used other Bourjois product and loved them x

    1. I have super pale skin even though I go quite tanned in the summer! But I think this is actually more natural than my powder bronzer. If you use a little bit it's actually really subtle. x

  7. Wow I'd never have expected such a dark product to look so natural and sun kissed once blended! I'd have been to scared to try! But it looks lovely!

    1. Thanks Rosie! It's really lovely once blended I was really surprised! x
