Physicians Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Powder in Beige Review

February 19, 2011

I could not resist buying this happy little product to try out and review. I bought this about a week ago and have been using it ever since. I usually stay away from powders all together because my skin will look extra dry if I use it. Lately my skin hasn't been as dry, so using this has been actually a good thing. Dare I say a "happy" time? 

Physicians Formula describes this powder as:
- Ultra-smooth, perfecting powder in a complementary palette of color blends together to even out skin tone with a flawless radiance.
- Infused with our Happy Boost Blend, featuring Happy Skin and Euphoryl, natural plant extracts which have been shown to promote a feeling of happiness by mimicking the effect of Endorphins and helping protect the skin from environmental stress.
- The sweet scent of Violet provides a feeling of joy each time you apply.
Here's what I thought:

Packaging - I actually love the packaging. It's pink, has a mirror on the bottom with a small brush, and hearts that I adore. To open the powder you just push the button and it will pop open. Super simple and cute.

Scent - I thought the scent would get really tiring after a while or possibly give me a headache. But that did not happen at all. It's a pleasant smell and that's the point where I get "happy" to use it. I know, how could a makeup product make you happy? I didn't believe it either, now I do.

Product - I bought the beige, which I would of did a swatch of, but it was too light to even see the swatch. The powder itself is soft and gives me a sheer coverage. Which I expected, I knew it wasn't going to be heavy or extremely pigmented. Just a nice light powder. 

Price - Okay the price... It retails for $13.95 which I kind of feel is a bit overpriced. I wish it would of been at the least $10.95. I was able to get mine for $7.95 with the $3 off coupon on the box and CVS extra rewards. So if you can, buy it with coupons or on sale.

So overall, I love this product. Even though the price is a bit steep (for a drugstore product) I can't stop using it. So that must say something good about this powder. Hope you enjoyed this review!

  1. that's sooooooooooooooooo cute!

    looks like it is indeed a keeper & it's great that you got it with a coupon!

  2. I saw these for $21.99 in Canada and I am definitely not paying for that price...

  3. They are soo cute, I've been looking for this and the blush but have been having no luck =(. Thanks for the review!

  4. Just by viewing the picture(s) of the product I actually assumed that it is a blush.. not a powder. I'm pale as a ghost so something like this (as a powder!) probably would look weird on my skin but I totally love the packaging and the design of the product itself. With things like these, it is hard for me to resist and not to buy it... if it looks cute it's always gonna land in my cart!
