Boscia BB Cream Bronze Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ Review & Swatches

Boscia BB Cream Bronze Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++

It’s rare I’m impressed by bronzers but Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Creme Bronzer and the new Boscia BB Cream Bronze Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ are possibly two of the easiest to use bronzers I’ve run across lately.

Boscia calls their BB Cream Bronze ($28) a one step wonder and I have to say that’s exactly what it is. What magic is in this bronzer that allows it to apply and blend out so easily?!

Infused with an SPF 27 sun protection and available in a universally flattering shade of glowing bronze this oil-free cream bronzer hydrates skin, firms it, and creates a sunny glow on your face with a flawless finish.

This has a gel-like cream consistency with a semi-matte finish that gives a natural tanned effect on cheeks and face. I think the stunning factor comes into play when you notice how seamless the bronzer is. It’s basically second coverage and very, very natural. It gives that day after a good tan look…! Bronze-y, glowing, healthy color.

Considering I liked it that’s saying something as I don’t do bronzers but a little of this applied all over my face with a dusting of blush gives a healthy glow to my face like I just got back from a tropical island!

The formula mimics Boscia’s BB Cream in the fact it has the same gel-like consistency that melds to skin but never accentuates larger pores or fine lines. It gives skin a soft, even tanning effect that’s virtually seamless so seamless in fact people will question where you’ve been on vacation.

Add in an SPF 27 for basic sun protection and you have a safe way to give your skin healthy color without every stepping into the sun.


I don’t do bronzers but ones like Boscia BB Cream Bronze Broad Spectrum SPF 27 PA++ can easily change my mind.

This one is a keeper.

It’s available now at Sephora, Sephora.com, or www.bosciaskincare.com

    Oh Muse – another lemming. I love the Boscia regular bb cream so I am all over this one. And I also need to thank you for your review of the Sonia Kashuk cream bronzer which I bought thanks to you and love, love it. So easy to apply and dream to contour with….no shimmer or weird color. Ordering the Boscia as we speak from Sephora! Yay summer!

      oh my pleasure anna SO glad to hear you liked the cram bronzer….I stink at applying bronzer but seriously this was so easy to apply 😀 YAY! ;-D I hope you like it! Let me know?

  • JuicesnBerriez

    Glad you posted this. It has such negative reviews on Sephora due to the color. But since I am a woman of color, NC 44/45, this is a perfect BB for me. I am glad this is getting some positive light, not just from WOC, but you found a way to make it work for your skin tone as well. It’s a great formula in my opinion.

    • the Muse

      gosh I thought the color was lovely surprised it got bad feedback :-/ I’m glad you’re liking it ;-D
