I use this every single day. All over my face and neck for sun protection and a natural looking glow. This is a fabulous product!
The coverage is buildable without cakeyness. I'm a middle-aged very oily skinned woman that still breaks out regularly. This keeps my oil production down and protects my skin too. It's got a very slight sparkle to it, which is ok. All the other mineral powders I've tried did not have the SPF and had too much sparkle. This powder is so fine and the color blends so well with my own skin, you really don't 'know' that I'm wearing powder. Love It!!!

I purchased this thinking it would be similar to the past light bronzer I bought, however it is a little to dark. The one I bought in the past had a white balancer that helped give my fair skin a more natural look.

    Comments about Physicians Formula Solar Pressed Powder, Light Bronzer, .03 oz:

    I have been using this product for years and the only place I can find it now is this site. I live in South Florida so the SPF is important and my skin keeps enough color that this product works perfect for me. I do not use a foundation. I apply this direct to a clean moisturized face and it gets rid of the uneven blotchy look. That's really all I use it for is to even out the discolorations. You do need to invest in a good brush though, the one that is included is horrible. I have oily skin and just need to blot my skin through the day(same for sweat). It stays on pretty good all day. I do have to pay attention to the creases where it will settle if you do not pay attention. I'm old and have some laugh lines so it's just the way it is. I've tried most of the other PF powders and bronzers and they are all full and still in my bathroom. I did not like any of them until I stumbled upon this one. I don't know why this one has been removed from the shelves at the stores it is hands down the best of them all.

          Comments about Physicians Formula Solar Pressed Powder, Light Bronzer, .03 oz:

          I have tried too many bronzers to mention, but I will mention a few...Estee Lauder, Bobby Brown, Lancome, etc. I have dealt with orange tones, too dark coverage, chalky coverage, etc. I am now loyal to this bronzer. (Note: I have tried other bronzers by PF and have not been as happy, so this review is for this specific bronzer). This bronzer goes on smoothly, and blends into my skin tone without looking shockingly orange or too dark. It stays on all day. I do add a little pinker tone blush (Mac) to the apples of my cheeks on top of the base bronzer. I love this product and love the price.

                  I tried the translucent version of this stuff (the one with the white sun, the peachy background and brown hill), mainly for the spf, since every sunscreen breaks me out. I liked it, it only gives a subtle hint of color and matte. I have very fair skin so I have to avoid the brown part (brozers just look rediculous on people as pale as me).

                    I bought this product for a vacation I was going on and I wanted the quick spf coverage. I didn't like it at first, b/c it has a bit of a sparkle to it, and I did not like that. Although after trying it again, it wasn't that bad. The spf in a powder really blew me away. I was at the beach for 3 hours in the hot sun and did not get sunburn at all. Nice.

                    This product is really great. I have fair/medium skin that tans in the summer and although this product even in its darkest color looks overwhelming, it covers nice and does not look orange and fake. The cover is complete and even, but is sheer enough to wear alone in the summer and over foundation in the winter. Just one of their many really great bronzers to try. Much better than the more expensive brands. I find it is best applied with a sponge or powder puff instead of the applicator that comes with it.
