The Best Natural Bronzer [Powder + Cream Options!]

September 20, 2019

I’m back beauty babes! Next up in the natural beauty series is clean bronzers! I feel like foundation and concealer are harder products to match and test to conventional but bronzers were FUN. With bronzers it comes down to personal preference. Do you like a powder bronzer or a cream bronzer? Warm toned or more cool toned? I have a bajillion bronzers in my collection so it was fun to actually go through and put these bronzers to the test. I personally have one holy grail bronzer (I love you Han!) but I’ll let you be the judge for yourself…

Looking to switch to a more natural bronzer? This comprehensive list looks at the best clean bronzers, including pressed and cream and which natural bronzers to avoid wasting your money on! #cleanbeauty

Looking to switch to a clean bronzer? Here is a lost of the best natural bronzers in both powder and cream options and for every shade range! #naturalbronzers #cleanbeauty


The Best Natural Powder Bronzer

1. Han Skincare Pressed Bronzer ($16)

The quality, price and ingredients are all amazing. A triple threat. I have the color Malibu and love that a little goes a long way. I prefer a powder bronzer with a warm glow and this took the cake. It works really well with  my skin tones and leaves me with a sun kissed look. I can’t say enough good things about this product.

The Best Natural Cream Bronzers

2.  Rituel de Fille Crème Blush (in Eros) $29

3. RMS Beauty Buriti Bronzer $28

Both are really great for contouring or as a cream bronzer. At the end of the day, I personally preferred the RMS Beauty bronzer because of how natural it looked on my skin and how well it wore throughout the day. The main differences: Rituel de Fille was medium-lasting and had a nice warm tone. RMS was cooler toned with better ingredients and slightly longer lasting.

Runner-Ups Clean Bronzers

I tested these and while they’re great quality and long-lasting, the shades just weren’t my favorites! In order of preference…

4. Lily Lolo Pressed Bronzer (in Miami Beach) $26

This was a solid option because of the quality, price and how long it lasted. What I didn’t love was that I had to use a lot of product for it to show up. But if you like having buildable coverage, this could be the bronzer for you! It was a nice warm color but was a bit more orange-y than the Han bronzer which was more brown (personal preference!).

5. W3ll People Bio Base Baked Bronzer $25

This is a great baseline bronzer if you’re looking to make the switch to green beauty. It didn’t wear suuuuper well but I also went to yoga on the day I tested this. It reminds me of the Hoola bronzer if any of you are Hoola diehards! Overall the ingredients are pretty good, price is pretty good and it’s a pretty accessible product. Pretty good!

Products I Didn’t Love…

6. Beautycounter Matte Bronzer $40

I used this for a long time before I discovered better products out there. It was actually the most expensive bronzer I tested and for the price, I want it last all day which unfortunately wasn’t the case. Time to say goodbye to this one!

Want to see me put these products to the test? I tried six bronzers out and gave my full review and honest opinion of each. See how I applied them and how they held up throughout the day.

    Goodbye, Beautycounter! I’m into powder bronzers because I find them easier to put on.
