Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear Set comes with the following:
- Bamboo Wear™ Bamboo Silk Bronzer Refill (worth $10)
- Bamboo Wear™ Bamboo Silk Face Powder Refill (worth $10)
- Bamboo Wear™ Bambuki™ Brush (worth $10)
- Bamboo Wear™ Bamboo Compact, Mirror & Brush (worth $7)
This means that the set is worth a total of $37, but I got the above set for $20. So I thought that was a pretty good deal. I saved a total of $17! Because Costco has such a good return policy, I figured I would buy it, go home and read reviews on it, and then return it if I need to.
I came home and read the reviews and they appeared to be very mixed. In a nut shell, people reviewed that the face powder worked, but it stunk (literally) and that the Bambuki brush sheds a lot and is scratchy to use on the face. I'm not a big fan of brushes made with natural hair to begin with, so I was planning on giving that to my mom anyway... The only thing that sounded worth keeping was the bronzer and the compact/mirror.
What do you think? Should I keep and try it for myself?
