How to Use
Rated 4.07 out of 5 stars
I just received this product last night. I have to say when I first seen the bottle, I got a little worried because it looks so dark in the bottle and even when you put it on your hand/finger. I am fair skinned and was concerned it would make me look orange. I put it on my face after my shower and it went on great. I didn't mix it with anything. This morning, I used it again and this time I mixed a small dot with my tinted moisturizer that I use daily...I don't use foundation at all. It went on like a dream and I didn't feel like it was too much for my skin tone. I will continue to use this and even use it w/o my moisturizer on the weekends. My only complaint was that when I first opened the bottle, the bronzer had crusted all around where you screw on the dropper. So when I opened it, pieces of dried up bronzer fell out. It almost looked like it was used but I don't think it was. Although it didn't have any protective wrap on the bottle or even come in any sort of box. The dropper seems to be sort of a pain to use as well. Especially once I get low on product. I'm concerned I won't be able to get it out of the bottle. The bottle is new and full and the dropper will only fill up less than half way.
I have sensitive,dry skin and was trying to find an alternative to Drunk Elephants D-Bronzi Drops which I used for a while and loved. I decided to give this a try to mix with my moisturizer for a subtle glow. The first thing I noticed was the consistency. It was thicker than expected, rather than a light,silky feel. Then I noticed the color came off too orangey instead of a nice bronze color, even after only mixing a small amount with my moisturizer. After one use I thought maybe it was the colder weather that irritated my skin a little but after using this a few days in a row, I noticed it had a negative effect on my skin and made it dryer and irritated. I was hoping it would be a win but my two favorite contenders are still BareMinerals tinted hydrating gel cream and Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi drops.

this product is so difficult to blend, makes pores look bigger, and is more full of glitter than a nice bronze effect. The droppers are faulty and it causes foundation separation. looked a lot prettier in the bottle

a mac nc42 complexion, the heatwave bronzing essence did provide a tanned finish. I wore it as a primer to make my skin tint finish darker and it works to also smooth my skin.

so this is bronzey and glowy on tan skin, but it accentuates my pores and textures. takes work to blend but once it's blended it looks decent. if you have flawless skin this is definitely worth it but I have problem skin with large pores and slight texture and I wouldn't repurchase this especially for the price

I live in Hawaii, it's summer year around so I always have to pile on so much sunscreen especially because of all the active skincare I use.
Where this becomes magical is after you slather your reef safe sunscreen (certain chemicals aren't aloud here, other states take notes)
I will apply this either all my face or just certain typical bronzer spots and this is a life saver.
It's like nothing on the skin the hot, windy, humid weather doesn't disturb it.
I wore it all day, and into the next morning for New Years and it was perfect!
I can also see people who use self tanner to really benefit from the product.

The only bad thing I can say about this bronzer is that it was shipped without being sealed. I also ordered the CBD serum, and the supernova one. Both of those items came with a small sticker that secured the lid to the bottle, not allowing it to come undone. This bronzer came without the little sticker and some of it had spilled out in the packaging it came in :( The product itself is GREAT! Just hope they start to QC a little better so these things don't happen :(

I have been using the Heatwave Bronzing Essence after I apply my concealer it gives a perfect amount of glow to my skin. Start off with a little & you can layer more if you need a bit more color. Skin feels soft & moisturized.

I love this product! I've been adding it to my foundations of varying coverage and it definitely gives me a natural, golden glow. One small drop gives enough coverage (When added to my foundation or BB cream) for my whole face, forehead and neck. I would have given this product a 5 star review, but the bottle is a little difficult to use. The dropper doesn't seem to work well and also tends to get messy and crusty in between uses. Maybe I just have a faulty one, but I'm still I pressed with the overall quality of this product. I use it every single day and it's become one of my favorites. I've already gone back and purchased a few more to give to friends.

Works great on my skin...doesn't make it look orange looks natural! Love it!
Carolyn from US
The color of this bronzer looks completely natural on my skin. I look like I have a healthy glow and I can adjust the color as I want to. Powdered bronzers can't compare, and unlike those, there is no obvious texture on my mature skin with this bronzing essence. It's phenomenal!

Good mix w foundation, or alone. Bad customer service
Tammy C from US
Great product. I mix it into my moisturizer for a glowy look when I don't wear foundation. Very natural looking and being an essence, it is light on your skin. Plays well with other cosmetics too! I would recommend it for anyone at any age.

This is my 2nd bottle and I believe there is something wrong with this batch. It is dry and hardly anything in the bottle, completely opposite of the regular one.
