Finding a bronzer that could replace my much loved Laguna, I thought would be near impossible, however theres one from the drugstore which has been rivalling it for some time now...

I think just from looking at it you can tell my Soap and Glory Solar Powder (£11.00, 9g) is very well loved. Compiled with two different shades which you can mix or use separately if you're feeling a bit more particular, this is a great choice for everyday. Being both matte shades makes this very wearable and also great for contouring. The darker shade can come off a tad orange if you're on the paler side, but mixed in with the lighter shade which is a lot more neutral toned, it should work a treat.

Application wise, I like a slightly bigger fluffy brush to just sweep this pretty much all over my face. The Real Techniques Blush Brush (£9.99) is a great option as its slightly tapered at the end so if you do want to focus on one area, such as the cheek bones, you can.

The only thing I'm not so keen on is the packaging. I find cardboard can become useless after a certain amount of time and is prone to falling apart. I haven't had any problems thus far so I guess I'll just sweep that to one side.

For the price I really don't think you can beat this bronzer. Yes, its been hyped a lot, but all for good reason, so I would definitely recommend this.
