Bronze Buffer
Since self-tanning is a prevalent topic this week for me, I decided it is a perfect time to review the Bronze Buffer I received. It looks like a magic eraser, but with a little more pizazz than the ordinary cleaning eraser. It is a simple sponge that removes self-tanner mistakes, aka streaking.

I set out to test drive this product for a couple weeks so I could give it a fair review. Overall, I liked it. Basically you apply the self-tanner corrector to areas where build up occurs; for example, it works well on your knees, elbows, ankles, hands, and in between fingers.

Although you can use it anywhere to wipe away mistakes, and even return your skin color back to its normal color, I don’t think the product made my skin even toned. But, it definitely wiped away mistakes and allowed me to reapply self-tanner in that area with a little more caution.

The founder of Bronze Buffer, Paige Herman-Axel, is a former beauty editor who has turned into a freelance write and blogger. She was looking “to refine and customize self-tanner results-even after color developed.” I think Paige succeeded in executing her vision.

The Bronze Buffer is a great assistant to all and any self-tanner mistakes. Every gal should have a pack of these buffers to ensure everything goes smoothly and, most importantly, looks smooth and even.

The Bronze Buffer packs come with 2 sponges and sell for $10. The sponges are reusable after the sponge dries completely. It is worth the price point, especially when it is going to prevent anxiety. I can’t tell you how many times I have had to refrain from wearing skirts to hide major streaking around my ankles and calves. It is always awful to have to wait a week or two, and, after continuous scrubbing, to go back to pasty skin.

Bronze Buffer makes it easier for you to solve these self-tanner issues quickly. I used it after a day of self-tanning when I streaked a bit around my calves. I wet the sponge and scrubbed the problem area. I then proceeded to use a little self tanner to even it out and voila! Problem solved.
