Keep Glowing with Physicians Formula

This post has been sponsored by Physicians Formula. All opinions and thoughts are my own.

Lets get real, Physicians Formula got us all through our crazy teen years, and for some (like me) has helped us far into adulthood. I’m talking about THOSE year, you know, when we had no idea how to color correct a breakout, let alone figure out how to apply concealer. Gone are the days spent prepping to look perfectly put together for our middle school dances. I’ll never forget how many times I hit pan on the good ol’ Shimmer Sticks, or the Mineral Glow Pearls. Man, those were the days! But now, even into adulthood I am still reaching for the brand that has been there for me through it all: Physicians Formula. So today I’m sharing with you all how to keep glowing, no matter what season it is, and why I choose Physicians Formula for my sensitive skin.

You know that strange transitional month (August, I’m talkin’ bout you!) we’re entering, when it’s not really Summer, but not EXACTLY fall yet; when Summer nights slowly transition into early mornings…and the Sunday scaries start creeping back to us. As Summer comes to a close, and we slowly approach Fall, so does our sun-kissed skin… or so we are led to believe. It can be difficult to master that post-summer-glow, but it doesn’t have to be. You don’t need self tanner, or an expensive beach vacation.

So, how can you keep glowing no matter what season you’re heading into?

All you need is 3 things… ¬†Only three? Girl what?!

  1. A big, fluffy brush
  2. Murumuru Butter Bronzer
  3. Master the easy “3” bronzing technique!

You don’t even need to step outside to give yourself a radiant glow. All you need to do to get started, is to remember the “3” technique, and sweep bronzer from your hairline, underneath your cheekbone, ending at your jaw. It truly is as simple as that.

Lets break it down….

Begin by swirling your brush into the Butter Bronzer, and sweep it into your temple/top of your hairline, right below your cheekbone, and finish at you jawline. This can be all in one motion, or slowly, until you get the hang of it. It doesn’t have to be perfect, or time consuming. A big fluffy brush will help by spreading out the pigment, without any harsh lines. If you’re looking to keep your glow, even into the colder months of the year, I highly suggest mastering this technique. Read on to find out why I love the Butter Bronzer, and why I continue to reach for Physicians Formula for my sensitive skin.


Why I LOVE the Murumuru Butter Bronzer:

+Smells like a tropical vacation, and sunshine (in my opinion!)

+Murumuru butter makes this bronzer soft, velvety, and allows it to glide smoothly onto the skin

+Melts into the skin, for a natural healthy looking glow

+Packed with skin-loving ingredients like pro-vitamins that aid in softening and moisturizing the skin

+It’s super affordable at only $15! You can buy it directly on the Physicians Formula site.



This is me, IPhone quality pic, flaws and all, baring my unperfect skin. I have struggled with acne since I was around 13, and Physicians Formula has helped me flawlessly cover up my imperfections, while somehow making my skin glow. Not only do I still have acne at the age of 27, my skin is also super sensitive. For me, it’s incredibly important to find products that suit my sensitive acne-prone skin, but also help to nourish it with healthy, safe ingredients. I’m sharing my skin struggles with you all today, in hopes that it may inspire you to look a little closer at your beauty products, and what you’re putting onto your skin. These are just a few reasons why I love Physicians Formula:

The Facts + Why You Will Love It:

+Physicians Formula was created by a doctor, Dr. Frank Crandall in 1937 for his wife who also struggled with sensitive skin

+Every single product produced is carefully made and tested, to ensure they are safe and free of harmful ingredients

+Physicians Formula is hypoallergenic (this is key for all of us sensitive gals!)

+This brand is recommended by dermatologists, allergists, and ophthalmologists (the professionals!)

+The quality it top notch, yet affordable


If you couldn’t tell already, I’m kind of obsessed with this brand as a whole. And I imagine if we were friends in real life, you would probably tell me you’ve had enough beauty talk for one day. One last thing I want to share with you all before we part ways…

I have been head over heels in love with the Physicians Formula Butter Collection x Weylie Hoang Palette because it has everything you need to keep glowing, no matter what season you’re entering. It features 2 highlighters, 2 blush colors, and 2 bronzers. Even with being on the more pale side of skin tones, I am able to use all colors in various ways, whether it’s creating a sun-kissed look, or a quick five minute face. The Murumuru Butter Highlighter has become my everyday staple, regardless if I’m wearing foundation or not. I dab a tiny bit onto my finger and press it into the inner corner of my eyes, to look that much more awake. The brand as a whole is insanely affordable, smells delicious, and is perfect for year round wear. What more could you want from your makeup?
