Have been using for years now--possibly 6-7..? I am very fair-skinned in the winter, but can get very tan if I try. I've found this product works for both sides of me. Just a light sweep does the trip to make me look sunkissed and "alive" in the winter and never looks fake. In the summer, it's the perfect compliment to my tan. Recently, however, I LOVE using it as an eyeshadow. Whether alone, with eyeliner, or with another color shadow over--this bronzer sets my lids to the perfect natural bronzed shade, or works well to prep and put something else over. LOVE!
Most Helpful Critical Review Used to love it, now it's eh
I used to LOVE this bronzer. There was no changing my mind on it. It was the perfect formula and perfect shade. After about 8 months, I started to notice it was too orange for my liking. On my light, olive/yellow asian skin tone, it just pulled too warm and yellow undertoned on me. I look back at old pictures and notice it as well. Now it's been over 2 years and I don't love it anymore and I'd never repurchase it again. It's a really nice formula but the shade just does not work on me

The color looks so pretty in the pan, but comes out very orange on the skin. This bronzer is also not blendable at all.
Great for fair/light neutral skin

Adds great natural warmth to my fair/light neutral skin tone. Blends in smoothly over my liquid foundation, no muddy/patchy issues. It does have fragrance if you were wondering.
Beautiful bronzer for brown skin!
Makayla from Orlando
I've been wanting to try this bronzer for years but never took the plunge bc of the price. I picked it up during the sale and I am in love with it! The color toasted is so pretty on brown skin. It has a bit of a red tone to it but not so red that you look crazy. It looks like you've been at the beach all day. So gorgeous! I will pay full price when I run out bc I love it that much!
Perfect for Pale Ladies

This review is specifically for the "Lite" version of Hoola. I'm fairly pale (Tient Idole shade 100) with neutral undertones, and find that most bronzers just look too orange and/or dark on my skin even when applied with a light hand. Not this one! I was skeptical at first because it does look very light in the pan, but it is PERFECT! It's very neutral toned and very buildable so you don't need to worry about accidentally going in too heavy. The brush it comes with is also quite good, albeit small. I've used it with the bronzer for the past 2-3 days and it's worked just fine. The bristles are soft and the handle is substantial. I hope they never discontinue this variety of Hoola!

The bronzer is really nice, gave me a nice warm look. I got the color toasted and it instantly warms my face!

Am I the only one?? I hit pan on this bronzer so fast, not because I loved it so much, but because every time I'd use it, it'd look patchy and fade after 5 minutes. This bronzer was a major disappointment. Also, I'd bought two of them, cause I was so pumped, and both bronzers did the exact same thing. meh.

Save your money. Physicians formula is way better!!

This had great quality, perfect finish. U fortunately it was just way too orange/yellow even on my neutral skin. So disappointing after hearing good things about it :(
Lara from FF, California
I don't use this because it's not Paraben free just a FYI. The three other shades are but not original one so weird.
Thought this would work…

I am a fair skinned freckled red head. I heard racing reviews on this bronzer, that it doesn't show up orange on us fair skinned girls, yet when I used it the first time it looked just like every other bronzer I've ever used that's too dark on me :(
Jen from Largo fl
It's not a bad bronzer just a little orange and also would not buy again because they test on animals.
My favorite bronzer!!

Gives a nice added color on top of my setting powder not too shimmery. Love it
Am I the only one who thinks this looks green?

I have purchase the original hoola bronzer because everyone and their momma keep recommending it. I have heard so many people say that it not only works amazingly as a bronzer, but works as a contour as well. Sadly, it didn't work for me in any of those ways. Every time I would apply it, my face would look a bit green. I have no clue why, but there is just something too olive in this shade to work with my skin. Perhaps my natural coloring is too warm to begin with and it ends up exaggerating the bronzer? The formula itself is great. Nicely pigmented and blends out well. I am highly curious about trying the lighter shade as it looks much less warm than the original. I would recommend this if you can find a shade that works well for you
My go to bronzer
Ashley 💋 from Bay Area
Very reliable and works great for all skin types. Just a really great product :)
Angel from Maryville, TN
I use it as a finish, it provides a nice glow over my makeup.
Hoola is my GO TO!
jasmineg from Los Angeles, CA
Hoola is my holy grail bronzer. I use it for contouring and as eyeshadow. I keep a mini in my makeup bag to go and have a full size in my makeup at home so OF COURSE I needed the jumbo! It is especially great for the big fluffy brushes that feel like you're jamming them into the smaller square boxes. Lots of product in the box and am happy they make bigger ones! It won't fit in a small makeup bag so this will definitely be a home product.
Eryn from Albuquerque
I love the size and little brush that comes with it too!

love it so much. it's natural and you can build on it! it blends seamlessly and the color is universal for all skin colors so i LOVE
Kate from Maryland
I will never use a different bronzer than the hoola bronzer. I have tried just about every brand but no one makes bronzer like Benefit! I buy the original color and I find it perfect for my light skin tone. It is not orange or patchy. Hoola bronzer will forever be my favorite.
