Pros: everything!
Cons: none!

Until I stumbled upon this stunning cream bronzer by Toronto-based eco-beauty brand Wildrose Magnolia, bronzer was quite simply the bain of my existence. I'd gaze admiringly (and yes, a little enviously) at the girls who had bronzer locked down, wishing I could master the art myself without looking like an Oompa Loompa or someone who just had a blast on a mudslide. 

Alas, as a very fair-skinned girl with red hair, bronzer has been dangerous territory for me. As I noted, it always looked too orange or too ashy, and it felt like it just looked fake no matter how much blending I did, what product I used or what fancy tool I employed. So I ditched the idea altogether (to be fair, I tried an obscene number of glow-getters before throwing in the towel).

Enter Wildrose Magnolia to make my bronzer ban a thing of the past. First off, the packaging is genius (it comes in a little gold tube that you'd probably mistake for a lip balm if you weren't reading the label- which would be fine, because the shade looks killer on lips, too). So it's super portable and cute, and won't hog more than its fair share of space in your purse (I'm looking at you, huge circular bronzer compacts!)

Secondly, it's a CREAM STICK! This thrills me because I adore cream products. Shadows, blushes, concealers, give me cream beauty stuff and I'm a happy girl. But a cream bronzer is a special gem, because one of my main bronzer problems was that powder products tend to sink into my pores, and I can't stand that. There's definitely nothing Sun Goddess-y about maximized pores. For the record, I have tried other cream bronzers, so my previous bronzer dilemmas were not purely powder-based. It was the general ruddy/muddy/spray tan appearance that really frustrated me. But no more! This is a creamy, dreamy non-greasy miracle.

Third, it's an all-natural formula. Wildrose Magnolia is one of the most impressive brands in terms of ingredients (and I am an ingredient SNOB), so it's not a surprise that the contents of this bronzer are not only super clean but also beneficial to the skin. See for yourself:

Ingredients/*raw coconut oil (cocos nucifera), *cocoa butter (theobroma cacao),  *shea butter (butryospermum parkii), beeswax (cera alba), carnauba wax (copernica cerifera), *carrotseed oil (daucus carota), *rosehip oil (rosa rubiginosa), non GMO vit E (tocopherol), rosemary extract (rosmarinic acid), kaolin clay, sericite, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, magnesium stearate, iron oxides, mica, ginger root Co2.  *Certified Organic (4.2g)

Basically, you're getting bronzing, non-toxic ingredients and SUPREME hydration (thanks, cocoa butter and shea butter!). So say "so long!" to dry patches on those cheeks.

Fourth, and best of all, it works like a dream. This is an extremely blendable, highly pigmented, long lasting cream bronzer that is the perfect colour to give you a natural looking sunkissed glow (save the Oompa Loompa face for Halloween. Or not.) Not too orange, not to ashy, this would be Goldilocks' favourite bronzer ever, since it's literally just right. It's PERFECT for contouring, since it is a natural shade, blends so well, and goes on so smoothly. I will never be without Wildrose Magnolia's Bronzer. And you shouldn't either.

Oh, I almost forgot the fifth reason this product rocks: It's affordable. Fifteen bucks for a handcrafted, non-toxic stick of bronzing bliss? Why are you still reading this? Go grab one and see for yourself why it's an absolute must-have.
