1 oz. squeeze bottle (says it has minerals in it, can't find ingredient list on bottle). Add couple drops to moisturizer or foundation or use alone. I've tried all 3 methods and all look good, my favorite is mixed with moisturizer. Nice glow, brightening, but no sparkle. You can make it as dark or light as you like. My perfect answer for summer. Ranges from $7.00-$9.00 depending on where you purchase. When I googled it, only UK info/version came up and bottle is different. US bottle is very bronzey/copper colored bottle with teal cap. There was a whole Maybelline Dream Glow display at my CVS. I really like this and wish there was a big bottle version to use with body lotion. I use on neck & chest and its just perfect.

Similar concept to Dr. H. Bronzing Concentrate (only cheaper & better as far as I'm concerned as I had a bad reaction to Dr. H. & the color was bad on me). I'm dry so powder bronzers can sometimes look cakey and self tanners don't work for me as I exfoliate too often.

great review! Very Happy

hmm is it really better than Dr H bronzing concentrate...im waiting for the buyer to come back from hol to place my order with her for Dr H stuff

i have seen the ads for Maybellines bronzing booster drops in magazines...but i never had any good experiences with Maybelline. i find they make false claims re their products especially with their mascaras and foundation AND now that u just said they have minerals in it but u cant find it in the ingredients list is very suspicious

I'm confused about what this product actually does. Is it like a self tanner and does it put color on your face?

yeahyeah, hi! I forgot to mention, there is no scent, There may have been ingredients on the flyer/coupon that came with it, but I used the coupon portion and threw the rest away. I would prefer ingredients be on the product though. And I guess I'm the opposite, have had good luck with Maybelline products I've started to try lately, namely the Age Rewind Cream Foundation in the pump bottle, just lovely, and same dewey finish I love about my Chanel Vitalumiere at a fraction of the cost and without any scent (which has become a problem for me lately). On the foundation you can peel back label & read ingredients. Nice thing about drugstore products is you can return if you don't like it (especially CVS & Walgreens). I had some kind of reaction to Dr. H., looked like I had hives, and the color was too dark and murky looking.

SnowWhite - its not a self tanner, its makeup, leaves color, you determine how dark by how much you apply or mix with moisturizer or foundation.

Thanks for the clarification. Sounds like a good product--I think there was someone who started a thread the other day about their face being lighter than their neck. This sounds like if would be ideal for them. If I can find the thread, I'm going to post about this product--but give you credit of course!

Thanks again Very Happy

Sure, no problem. I think I'm going to start referring to it as my own custom blended tinted moisturizer!

And I need to change my signature below, the "No buy" statement is so not true! Very Happy

great to see that Maybelline's working wonders for u!

Dr H sounds better for me then...well not the allergic reactions and the murky colour but that its dark cos even thought i have a pale complexion for a chinese, by the time i get that tan on hol, my skin should be darker!

Sounds great. I was just at Ulta today trying to find a bronzey/shimmer type lotion, but no luck. I'm naturally tan, so don't need a product to make me tanner, but I just wanted something that would give me a healthy glow. The ones I tried either made me look too dark, or didn't show up, or had too many sparkles. This sounds perfect. I'll definitely give it a go.

looks alot darker when it comes out of the bottle than it really is, even used alone. I mix it with moisturizer so it makes a nice tinted moisturizer for me and I can adjust how much color!

My skin is acneic & I think this has broken me out. I started using it a couple days ago & have since developed 6 new pimples.

I do still add to my body lotion though. It doesn't add any color to me, but some silver shimmer particles.

I got a bottle to try and though it isn't as nice as the Dr Hauschka's it's a great product for the price. It is thicker than Dr. Hauschka and I found dotting it on the areas I put bronzer on then blending it in worked the best for control of the colour. On the whole a great drugstore find.

I like this product too. A little goes such a long way.
I can't use Dr Hauschka's products since they make products that contain peanut oil. My son has a life threatening allergy to peanuts so I have to be so careful with products I buy.

I also bought it in Us but somehow i didnt like it.
When I bought i was very happy and was assuming that now my face will also glow as the model'face shown on its ad.

But it didn't happen. I was not glowing at all.
instead it just made me look dark Sad and got breakout too.

I was using Bodyshop glow enhancer which is much better than this(I am using white one in bodyshop) and was looking for better alternative but disappointed and will stick to Bodyshop only.

I guess may be this has something to do with my complexion. Note that i have wheatish(brown) complexion so i guess gold one doesnt suit me or may be m using in wrong way.

My objective is look all over even and bright colored but i guess this product of maybeline is not good for that atleast for my skintone.

It dosnt at all add glow to ur skin

Ritas, oh no, not good! Thats a good description you give of your complexion "wheatish/brown" and will help others to know if its a good match for them. I'm definitely light/medium light (yellow undertone) complexion and mixed with moisturizer or foundation, the Maybelline drops are a good color on me. If I use it alone, I just use a drop or 2 (no more) on freshly moisturized skin and it goes on nicely.
