NOTE: THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED BUT THEY DO HAVE A NEW VERSION
I have made it pretty clear that I love Essence as a brand and this particular product is another hit for me. It is the Essence Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder and I have the shade 02 (Sunny).
Description on the back. Yes, it says 15g! That is a LOT!!!
The product inside…
Yes, the product has imprints (raised prints actually) of two women seemingly either modelling, dancing or posing, however you choose to view it. You can see that I have dug through the middle, attesting to my love for it.
Description: It is a matt bronzing powder, plain and simple. There are two shades and the one featured is for deeper skin tones. There’s a total of 15g (0.52 oz) of product and the product smells like some kind of a coconut dessert.
Where to buy: Watsons [updated 14/072017].
Price: MYR 14.90 (I say this in all my reviews, it’s a drugstore item! Look out for discounts/promos!!!)
Upon initial swatch it seems to have a lighter colour on my skin tone. Take a look at the next picture which was taken after about 10 minutes or so…
Now it is hardly noticeable except for a glow on my skin. The colour seems to have oxidised and somehow look warmer than initial swatch. All that would be noticed now would be that glow.
I used the bronzer here on my friend around the perimeter of her face, to give her face dimension and warmth.
I have some on me here but it somehow just blends into my skin. Every time I use this bronzer, people say, “you look glowy huh…” I am guessing that’s a compliment 😛 (Sorry I look like a sourpuss, I probably should have smiled huh…)
A matt bronzer is always appreciated to use for a guy so that’s pro for me.
It lasts a good 4 hours.
It blends out easily.
Deep, tanned skin friendly.
Although matt, the bronzer has some kind of glow to it giving the skin a healthy finish.
There’s a lot of product and that’s definitely appreciated.
The big pan is difficult to store or carry around; not travel friendly.
The coconut scent can be a source of discomfort for people who do not like that scent.
It is a very warm toned bronzer so it may appear orange on people with very fair or cool toned skin shades (even the lighter shade).
An amazing product I can’t get enough of!
