Bronzer That’s Fungal Acne Safe (and great for fair skin)

Hi, welcome to my beauty blog. I am Rachael, and this is my beauty blog Written by Rachael on December 2023, last updated: December 2023

If you’re suffering from fungal acne but want to look like a bronzed goddess without the acne, look no further. I’ve been using one from Amazon, which I’ll tell you about below.

I’ve suffered from fungal acne for around a year. Finding products I want to use that are safe and won’t bring me out in fungal acne has been a tough, time-consuming process. I’ve tried skin cycling which helped reduce the product I put on my face, but it didn’t clear up the acne.

Fungal-acne triggers

One of the biggest triggers is oil-based products as they clog the skin. Unfortunately, a gorgeous-smelling product by Elemis that’s hugely popular – the Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (see my article on it here) for removing makeup started my fungal acne due to it having 13 ingredients that can trigger fungal acne. I was using it before and during my holiday, which is when my acne got worse.

My favourite fungal-acne-safe bronzer – for £17

It took a while, but I found a fungal-acne-safe bronzer:

  • Indeed Labs Nanobronze Bronzing Drops

It’s £17 and available on Amazon.

How do you use bronzer?

I use it in the morning, as it gives a glow. I use it when I’m wearing foundation and also when I’m not. I first apply any serums – Vitamin C – then the bronzer with a moisturiser that allows me to smooth it over my face easier (the bronzer is thick). I finish with an SPF (usually La Roche Posey SPF or Malezia moisturiser – both fungal-acne safe).

Skin after using the bronzer; I follow this up with SPF. This helps to distribute the colour more evenly

After using bronzer and SPF – the final look. I leave at least 10 mins before putting make up on.

You need to take it off at the end of the day, as it’s not good to keep anything on your skin that’s been on it all day.

How much do you need?

This amount gives me a pretty good colour

You only need a small blob and it’s thick so I use it with moisturiser to help smooth it around my face. Once it’s been a few minutes, I put SPF on over the top which helps to smooth it out even more (and look better).

This is the bronzer on its own. It’s thick and a little difficult to spread over skin without pulling. I usually mix the bronzer with a blob of moisturiser to help it glide on

I apply SPF after the bronzer to help smooth out the colour even more (you can see under my eye, it’s not rubbed in properly!)

Don’t forget to apply it on your ears, throat and neck so you’re all one colour!

What are the ingredients?

WATER (AQUA/EAU), GLYCERIN, CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, MICA, PVP, SODIUM ACRYLATES COPOLYMER, SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE, MACROCYSTIC PYRIFERA (KELP) EXTRACT, OCTYLDODECANOL, PHENOXYETHANOL, SQUALANE, LECITHIN, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, SODIUM HYALURONATE, CUCUMIS SATIVUS (CUCUMBER) FRUIT EXTRACT, THEOBROMA CACAO (COCOA) SEED EXTRACT, SODIUM BENZOATE, PISUM SATIVUM (PEA) EXTRACT, POTASSIUM SORBATE, IRON OXIDES (CI 77491), BISMUTH OXYCHLORIDE (CI 77163), IRON OXIDES (CI 77942), IRON OXIDES (CI 77499)

It is fungal acne-safe on both websites I use to check beauty products:

Can you use it with makeup?

Yes! I apply vitamin C first, then this bronzer with moisturiser, and I finish with SPF. Once this is all dry, after 10 minutes, I apply make-up as usual.

Sometimes I use primer after SPF if I need make-up to last. I haven’t noticed a difference in extra oil on my skin but a primer can sometimes add some if my skin is already more oily than usual (think time of the month).

How much is it?

It’s £17 £19.99 at the time of writing, and is available on Amazon. I bought it in April (for £17) and pretty much used it daily, give or take a few days. I’m guessing I have a few weeks left of the tube.

As it’s gone up in price, I wanted to see if it’s available elsewhere. I didn’t realise this but Boots sells it, as well as ASOS, Debenhams and Look Fantastic. All similar prices.

Here is the evidence of the price back in April when I bought it. I’m still using this one too, so 8 months (and counting) is pretty good for near-every day use
