Results are described as:
Perfects and protects skin from infrared, thermal and UV ageing, helping to reverse signs of damage and increase tolerance to UV. Smart light scattering powders and intelligent adaptive tint reduce the appearance of skin imperfections for an enhanced Skinesis glow.
Sounds impressive doesn’t it? Now to what I thought/think.
Packaging and Cost
The product comes in a practical bronze hard plastic container with silvertone detail around it and white writing. It has a pump applicator and push on cap and RRP is £49 for 30ml (unless on offer) – as well as being practical, the packaging does look luxurious as well.
It has a light slightly oily creamy consistency (though not greasy) – looks and feels like a lighter tinted moisturiser. First thing I noticed again, was the aroma, love the aroma of all the Sarah Chapman products I have tried to date – it is hard to explain but to me it is has an uplifting, refreshing, maybe a slight Citrus fragrance, not overpowering but still lingers slightly on the skin. Again when you apply it, feels like your skin is being treated, pampered with a luxurious product. I also love this is a combination of a skincare and makeup product, a light tinted moisturiser.
Application and Results
Now on to the application and results, I used / use two pumps as directed after my moisturiser (sufficient for face neck and top of chest), I dabbed on my face and neck like a foundation and then applied / apply either with a beauty blender or my fingertips, found both work well. Blends so easily (photo below shows it v well blended in on my arm, I have v pale skin and had no tan on in this photo), leaves your skin looking refreshed, feeling hydrated, dewy but not greasy more like a boost to the skin and although only a tint it does give a light coverage which is also slightly buildable, need to apply concealer over any blemishes but I do this anyway even with heavier tinted moisturisers / foundations. I also have mixed with one of my ‘hero’ products, the IT Cosmetics CC Foundation Cream to give my skin an additional boost and it works perfectly. Personally I have had no irritations either.
I think this will be a great all year round product but think it is especially good for the warmer weather when you don’t really want to wear a foundation but still would like a light coverage something to help give a boost to the skin whilst also helping to protect it.
Definite repurchase for me and I would recommend trying this product if you can, not only for the results but also because it is so easy to fit into your normal routine. However if you have a Sarah Chapman counter near you, check it out for yourself, especially if you have a more oily skin.
You can purchase from a number of online stores which include, Sarah Chapman, SpaceNK UK, Feelunique.co.uk, currently Feelunique are offering a Free gift worth £47 with 2 Sarah Chapman purchases, while stocks last and they also have regular discount codes, free gift offers available as well. However as always check around to see where you can get the best offer i.e. discovery sets, discount off, free gifts with purchase, samples or hopefully if you are lucky maybe all of them.
Look forward to any comments you may have. Love to hear if you have tried this product before and if so do you like it as much as me.
