REVISITED | ESSENCE Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder in Sunny Review

March 30, 2013

How is the start of your summer so far? 

In sunny Manila, the temperature is rising! We are ranging from 33- 35 degrees. Whew! While I absolutely adore summer, I abhor the heat and the sun's harmful effects.

Now, what's great about summer? Well, aside from heading to the beach, get a tan or swim all you want, it's also the perfect time to wear bronzers

Oh- I think bronzers are underrated! For me, they are great in giving me that perfect sun-kissed look. Bronzers are also great for contouring, do you agree?

More on bronzers, my current fave is the ESSENCE Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder in Sunny

Essence is a new brand here in the Philippines all the way from Europe. It boasts of affordable products without the guilt of spending too much. It is basically a drug store brand that I really love as of the moment. They got tons of products from lips, face, cheeks, eyes and the like. They even got nail polishes too! And guess what? It's such a relief that Essence is not even that expensive.

The bronzing powder for brunettes offers a touch of wonderfully fresh and natural-looking colour for darker skin types. the matt powder has a somewhat stronger shade to give already tanned skin the perfect finish.

Me Says:

I love it. Super perfect for my oily skin.

The price is such a steal for Php 259.00. You won't feel bad spending for this great product.

Value for Money
You get 15g of product for that affordable price. I say yes to that!

Contour Perfect
I got a round face, a chubby cheeks and then some. This product allows me to perfectly contour the sides of my cheeks to give me a slimmer effect in photos and even face to face. And yes, no added shine at that!

Ingredients Listed
Allergic to some? Don't worry, the packaging's going to tell you what's inside!

Love That Smell
I smell coconut-y... Or maybe not. But I love it. And no, I am not bothered by how it smells.


Too Big For My Bag
I wish Essence carries this product in smaller package. But that's just me over reacting.

Overall Verdict:

5 Lipsticks

This is definitely one of my fave things this summer. 

The beach, the sun, the sea....welcome back Summer!

Buy Again: Yes! For that summer all year round!
