this is CLEVER! its a loose powder, with an spf of 46 (was originally spf 50 but went through the strictest of spf tests and was decided on spf 46 but basically spf 50!)
normal spf's that you apply, wether through moisturiser or foundation don't actually have full uva/uvb protection even though they may state spf 20 or whatever and even if they do then they only last a couple of hours max! so what do you do when you need to top up your sunscreen?? remove all your makeup and start again? noooo!
so clever chantecaille have come up with this powder with brush attached for easy application which you literally just dust on every couple hours to keep you protected and shine free, its is full uva/uvb protection and is as light as anything. it comes in translucent, or a bronzer. the first time you purchase it, it may feel expensive as its £50 but that is with the brush, which is a real hair, very soft brush (their brushes are expensive anyway) and then when the powder runs out you can get refills for around £23 so not bad! especially as you would save money on not having to buy an spf for the face!
this is 'or de rose elixir extreme soleil' from by terry (long name!) and its my fave at the moment, its expensive but if you can afford it then try it! its basically a foundation primer, with a slight tint to give you a bronzy glow, it evens the skin tone like nothing i've ever seen before from a primer, v clever! it leaves the skin feeling ridiculously soft and smooth and makes your foundation go on like a dream! it also lifts, mattifies and is full of anti ageing ingredients. for extra info, click space nk.
