butter bronzer

SO I’ve been going through my makeup stuff and switching over to cruelty-free when products need to be replaced. I’ve lost some makeup I really love, but at the end of the day, I’m just not so comfy supporting a brand that tests on animals. Today I’m talking about a pretty popular drugstore bronzer that’s affordable & also happens to be cruelty-free. Talking about the PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER.

best cruelty free drugstore bronzer?

Physicians Formula isn’t the least expensive drugstore brand, I spent about $15 or so on my this bronzer. BUT it’s also way cheaper than what I was using before, the NARS laguna bronzer, which isn’t cruelty-free. They’re both great bronzers, but the butter bronzer has a smaller price tag & if it means one less bunny wearing lipstick, it’s kind of a no-brainer for me. I also wrote a post where I switched my setting powder to a cruelty-free brand if you wanna check it out!

I got the Physicians Formula butter bronzer about 4 months ago & haven’t used any other bronzer since. It smells like vacation, kinda like coconuts, or sunblock, in a good way. They have four shades, I went with light cuz I’m pale. It comes with this little sponge thing, but I just use my big kabuki brush. It’s creamy, easy to apply & blends really easily, 12/10 would recommend. Can’t go wrong with cruelty-free drugstore makeup that works like a dream!


COMMENT BELOW, tell me all about your favorite cruelty-free brands!




  1. I am so happy to hear that you’re going cruelty-free! I started going through my products a few months ago and was shocked by how many things are tested on animals. I hope you post more products that you find on your journey! My favorite companies that are cruelty-free are The Body Shop, Tarte, Pacifica, and 100% Pure.

  2. I love that you’re going cruelty-free! It was definitely hard for me to do too (I also checked other products like toothpaste and shampoo) but it’s better for animals so that’s all that matters to me!
