|Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF50 ($26.50)|
This is so replacing my Biotherm Sunfitness Revitalizing Sunscreen for Face SPF15! Like the Biotherm sunscreen, this feels super lightweight and hardly greasy on. It sinks right into my skin and does not leave behind a white cast like some sunscreens do. It is also specially formulated with oil-absorbing powder to help prevent oil breakthrough. Plus the high SPF value means you get to skip sunscreen which is double yay for lazy people like me. My only complaint is how tiny the bottle is but other than that, I *love* this product.
|Prep + Prime Skin ($22)|
This is a totally different product from the Face Protect. It is “formulated with special-effect silicones to improve the laydown and application of foundation or powder”. It goes on a lot more more watery and feels very hydrating. Even though I do not see any evening out of skin redness or soothing of skin as claimed, I really like how it plumps up my skin in an instant leaving it feeling very supple. The finish is also very different. It is pretty shimmery, in fact, a little too shimmery for my taste. If you have big pores or like the matte look, this is not the product for you.
This is a repromote from the Sundressing collection last year. Basically, it is a foam bronzer for the body that comes in a spray can. It is makeup and *not* a self-tanner so it needs to be washed off at the end of the day. There are currently four shades available – Medium, Medium Dark, Dark, and Deep Dark – which I find all too orange. The soft mousse formula does make it highly blendable and super easy to apply but sadly, this product has zero pigmentation. I tested Medium and the color went on a LOT lighter and barely showed up on me. I also did not see any shimmery effect. And while the can looks cool, the pump is hard to work with and does not dispense the product evenly. If I press too hard, I get a huge blob of product; if I press too lightly, I barely get anything. Overall, I say skip this, there are better products out there at this price.
