Although we should all wear an SPF all year around because we still get UV rays coming through on a cloudy dull day, I recognize that most people still associate SPF with sunny days.
What better way than to combine a high quality, water resistant SPF with the light coverage of a finishing powder?
The Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen is a mineral powder with water-resistant and broad spectrum SPF.
It is a lightweight formula and gives UVA and UVB protection,
It doubles as a transclucent face powder and sunscreen all in one.
In terms of powder quality, it gives good coverage for rosacea and pigmented skin.
It helps to even out skin tone, mattifies the skin and you can re-apply it during the day.
Each time you re-apply, you are topping up the SPF coverage so you’re protecting your skin against ageing.
Best of all, the brush is the best quality I have come across!
Over the years, I’ve spent loads of money on make-up brushes: kabuki, blusher and powder brushes, sometimes even up to £36 for one brush. The brush dispenser with the Sunforgettable is soft, comfortable and long lasting. You'll actually want to keep it once the powder has gone, it's that good!
Sunforgettable comes in 2 ranges: SPF30 in 3 translucent shades of fair, medium and dark. SPF50 in shade medium.
Priced at £38 for the SPF30, and £41.50 for SPF50
The brush cleaner is essential. This aromatherapy scented brush cleaner is made especially for self-dispensing and professional make-up brushes, it removes excess make-up and build-up and is essential for maintaining your brushes. Priced at £6.50, it's very reasonable and you can use it with all your make-up brushes.
