All good except for the cap that won't stay put from day one
I keep one brush in my car & one at home. I live in Georgia so the sun is almost always out and I absolutely hate the feel of sunscreen on my face. This product has fixed that problem.
The powders color is more of a light to medium shade so I didnt wear it outside to determine how well it protected from the sun. What you see in the photo is the color after I tried to rub it off my arm. Since the spot is still darker than my skin, I guess you could assume it has good staying power. It has no strong odor. A LOT of powder comes out once you turn it over and start applying it. Youll get a cloud of it. I tested it on the back of my hand and it caked up a little in the lines of my hand and made my skin look/feel dry because SO much powder was deposited. It looks nice when you can control how much you apply so I recommend not turning it upside down.
I put this product on my "to buy" list when I was still working in the office and thought it would be handy for the 10-15 minutes I was outside and didn't want to slather up with lotion sunscreen. Back then I wore makeup and figured this product would give me a little protection without ruining my look. That's no longer my life, and now I wonder if this was a waste of money. Let's start with sun protection. It claims 30 SPF, but we've all been warned that we typically don't use enough sunscreen to get the manufacturer's full SPF rating. I'm really surprised that this light dusting of powder will provide level 30. More important, how do we know how much we're applying? I can't see it go on, and I have to search for the perfect lighting to tell whether there's powder on my face. I have no idea how much I'm applying or where it's sticking. So I don't feel confident depending on this as sunscreen. Applicator. This is a joke. Sometimes there's hardly any powder on the brush, which makes me wonder how much is getting on my skin and is it enough to do any good. Sometimes there's a fair amount, in which case it invariably flies into the air with the first stroke; then I'm still left wondering how much made it onto my skin. (The directions state to apply "liberally".) After a few strokes, the brush appears to be bare, so you have to recap it, retap it, reapply it... and if you want to feel somewhat sure you covered your whole face, you need to do this about 4-5 times. Even then I'm still not sure. Appearance. This shouldn't be considered "makeup"--- it covers nothing. It's powder! Don't expect it to give you a nice complexion. In fact, it gives you a powdery complexion. (Especially when applied "liberally".) At least initially. If you have oily skin or sweat, maybe it will blend in eventually. But if your skin is normal to dry, just know you're going to look like your grandmother wearing this. It's not a good look. Packaging. Here, they claim their packaging is recyclable. I suppose the paperboard box it comes in can be recycled, but the plastic bottle it's in won't be. They state on the box, "We are committed to removing all non-recyclables and reducing plastic." If they were serious, they'd be making their boxes out of post-consumer paper and their bottles out of glass. They're just paying lip service to the whole environmental effort and hoping you'll be too stupid to know. They do get points, however, for having the Leaping Bunny stamp (I hope that's used legitimately), being vegan, and I suppose for offsetting their electricity with "wind certificates" (although I have no idea what those are.)
This product has helped my husband manage his prostate cancer very effectively.
