When crafting articles for our The Best column, I really like to balance curation with options. In most instances, I really don’t believe there’s one best thing for everyone. On the other hand, the Internet gives us all access to so many choices that we all need a little help narrowing things down.
I approached this story on bronzers in the same way I do all The Best articles. However, things turned out a bit differently this time. Instead of 5-7 winners emerging, the same two bronzers kept coming up over and over again. Turns out, they’re really just that good. Even better, one is an affordable option under $5 and the other is more of splurge at $30. The fact of the matter is, no matter which one you choose you will not be disappointed. Shop the two best bronzers (ever!) below:
Highlights: Creamy and soft texture combines the best features of a powder and cream bronzer, to deliver a lit-from-within tropical glow; hypoallergenic; safe for sensitive skin and eyes; created without any of the 150+ known harsh ingredients found in other personal care items
“Love this bronzer! I was skeptical of this powder at first as a very pale redhead (I am skeptical of bronzers, tbh), but this one has really surprised me! I love the color on my skin! I also love how I can use this powder for my brows to help fill them in & I have used this as a shadow! So many uses!! I would definitely recommend & will be buyin again! It also smells amazing and arrived on time!!” – Pati
“I have tried many high-end bronzers, but nothing compares to this one. The lighter shade is perfect for fair-skinned gals like myself and you can’t beat the price!” – Alisha
Highlights: Gives your complexion a healthy, natural looking tan; 4 shades; soft, blendable formula and matte finish
“I’ve been using Benefit Hoola since I came out the womb. Just kidding, but I am going on almost 20 years with it. It’s the perfect shade for my medium-light skin tone, and the packaging is pretty.” – Justine
“Hoola is such an iconic bronzer and I’m soo glad it comes in different shades! Hoola Lite is perfect for giving my pale complexion a little boost in the spring and summer!” – Morgan
“Full disclosure: this bronzer is probably a little too dark for me, but I love it too much to care. I try to use it sparingly, but it always gives me a nice sun kissed look without being overboard.” – Hannah
