To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I just bought this product as a substitute to the usual Sunscreen products in cream/lotion form. This product is unscented, easy to use and very light! It’s still too early to tell whether I will have Milia seeds after using this but so far, it looks promising.
A really nice sunscreen powder, it’s finely milled, and applies really smoothly. I do have sensitive reactive skin and have found the powder does have a calming effect. The brush itself is soft and dispenses a generous amount of powder but not so generous there’s wastage. Doesn’t leave a white cast and doesn’t accentuate dry spots. Gold star!
Ok, I will say today is the first day Im using it, so I might update this review. But right away I am in love! Goes on evenly, blends in with my skin tone, which is light, but not "Fair". I was a die hard Colorscience Sunforgettable user for years in color Medium, if this helps. However, I could not afford this anymore and sought an alternative. I am super happy with this so far. it feels light, not cakey. I had no problems getting the product to come out, nor getting the brush to retract back into the tube - as other reviewers have said. Perhaps it depends on manufacturing and they may have improved this since those reviews. I will assume it IS waterproof or AT LEAST water resistant, as I spilled some in my sink by mistake and was unable to get it off without some serious elbow grease and some spray thing like 409! It DEFINITELY did not easily get splashed down the drain! As to sun protection, I always use a lotion SPF everyday including in the winter and on cloudy days,. this is my touch up method of protection for a 2nd or even 3rd layer. So far I really recommend this. Maybe I'm premature in writing a review, I was just so pleasantly surprised, I couldn't resist! If you have Prime (which I do) its worth a shot. you can always return it if there is a problem. Great Value!
I’m a skincare junkie and SPF is absolutely essential for me. I always use a moisturizer or primer with built in SPF, but since I wear makeup over it, reapplying has been a challenge. That’s where this powder comes in. I love that it comes with a built-in brush which makes application a breeze. I use this two ways: as my translucent/setting powder over my mineral foundation and under my highlighter and bronzer/blush OR as my finishing powder/final step on top of ALL my makeup. If you’re using this over your makeup, just be aware that it will tone down the pigment of your blush/bronzer slightly. This can actually be a good thing if you over-applied. It does look a little powdery on the skin, but I minimize this by following up with setting spray (which also contains SPF). In terms of pigment, it can look somewhat light and ashy on me but only if I don’t buff it in well enough. For reference, my skin is medium-tan with warm/yellow undertones. Overall, this is great as a finishing powder and the packaging is convenient. You can keep it in your makeup bag or purse and reapply on the go. It’s just perfect. I will definitely repurchase!
I have very fair skin. I'm exposed to the sun a lot. I wear sunscreen, bb cream and my makeup. I wanted something to put on top of my makeup after a few hours while keeping the look. It has a slight tint, but not enough to bother me. I dab it all over my face/neck and I'm good to go. I don't know how well the sun protection is because I wear w other sunscreens. And I'd say it's not water proof because it's a powder.
This is easy to apply and cosmetically elegant as a setting powder over a liquid sunscreen (Elta MD physical sunscreen). The only negative is that the tint is too dark for my fair complexion, which limits how much I can apply without looking ridiculous. It would be an excellent product for folks who are not particularly fair-skinned!
