Post with not very aesthetic photos 🙁
I have this year happens to sunscream difficult to be machined into the explanation. Scinic first laid off, then didn’t send it, then, but better not…. In the end, making another order, I decided to give a chance to European sun protection creams. Have long understood that anything worthwhile is not to buy, even drugstore cosmetics don’t fit me. Max to the beach for a couple of hours, for greasy and unpleasant. But I live in the city and even on the beach and want to look good. Thought and thought and thought up the body shop skin defence spf 50 pa++++ …
Why the body shop? Don’t know, just tired of walking around the city and there is like a Quick satest in the store I was impressed by the medium, because I spoiled scinic and biore, which stubbornly do not want to repeat Although it was very good… Logic? Never heard of it.
The body shop seemed pretty easy, but not matte, not like milk. Anyway, the essence is good too. Moreover, all factors of protection at maximum. And the price is encouraging, 25 euros for 40 ml is almost clinique-cal rates. Essence in addition to sun protection should still be well moistened. My skin is oily, but the moisture thing, in General.
In the Runet not so many reviews for this product, and those that I found were very positive. I think this is due to the fact that our people are not spoiled by the Korean sunscream. Plus not all have problem skin. But if the acne is your life companion and escalates from any incorrectly matched funds, then do not pass this post.
“Pure essence extract from North Atlantic red algae and vitamin C helps to cope with the negative effects of the environment and provides reliable protection of the skin from UVA and UVB rays. Incredibly lightweight, instantly absorbed texture transformirovalsya of milk in water in contact with the skin, allowing you to apply it on top of moisturizer.
— Contains extract of red algae from the North Atlantic, vitamin C and nourishing Marula oil procured in Namibia under the program “Fair trade”
— Incredibly lightweight, instantly absorbed texture
— Intensive protection of skin from sunlight and premature aging
— Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive”
Essence has a creamy-gel liquid consistency and, though at first glance it is very easy, some oils/fats or something in it. And water, a moisturizing basis is felt. In General, I would compare it with a light, but zhirnovat face cream. It is not like a typical sunscreen from the mass market. But the pharmacy or middle-market I’ve seen.
It shows the essence is quite wet and moisturizing. Not quite what I was looking for, but during the day sunscreen behaves more or less decently.
Here it is fully seated. Special fat no. But there is a first bad moment. On hand such a reaction is not visible, but the face immediately after applying is very very red. And my skin rarely responds, and then only on acid peels or masks. On cream ever. The redness takes about two minutes. Well, you never know, I thought. Such creams are a lot of chemical. filters, it’s not a clean getaway.
At first I used sunscreen one or two days, alternating with remnants of biore, and I looked at the reaction of the skin. Despite the fact that the essence is very moisturizing, makeup it held up very well. I would not say that the skin Girnius faster than normal, well maybe a little. Again, in comparison with biore — Girnius Yes. But in the abstract, quite a fine. In addition, the body shop is really good moisturizes and smoothes the pores a bit. I noticed this effect in the mirror, the skin more smooth and radiant. So with a clear conscience this cream was made in my care. But….
Rate this horror Sheet that snuck up on me. About a week everything was fine, I was embarrassed just redness after application. And then very abruptly, within 2-3 days I sprinkled these painful and deep podminkami that I didn’t even know where to go and what to do. Essence I immediately canceled. Thought that it because of other new products was not, plus the redness that was bothering me. But that’s half woes. Even after the abolition of skin calmed down. It’s like she’s “broke”. By my logic, some kind of chemical.filter, and maybe a mix of them played such a cruel joke. In place of matured Podkorytov, there also appeared new, as if regeneration was reduced to zero. The skin has become very sensitive and dehydrated.
The pores expanded, appeared closed comedones under the lower lip, acne is not passed (in the photo, by the way, post-acne period, in the “midst” I didn’t even want to take the camera), and the new podkonice climbed to the site of the old. Due to the increased sensitivity I really couldn’t use products with acids and benzyl peroxide. It was a vicious circle from which I had escaped. But that’s another story.
And yet, things were back to normal and never returned. I’m not a master to do reviews of compositions, also, realize that the Internet criticize everything that is not itself emerged from the tree. But suddenly you are interested:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Alcohol Denat., Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (UV filter, lectinology emulsifier. Danger: Toxic. Causing endocrine disruption. Rating 2/5), Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate (skin conditioner, softener, solvent, thickener, emulsifier, film former. Danger: Safe when used as intended and in acceptable concentration. May cause irritation of the skin. Rating 2/5), Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane (active ingredient in sunscreens with a broad range of protection from UVA rays. Rating 3/5) Butylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Polymethyl Metacrilate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Octocrylene, Chlorphenesin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Cetearyl Glucoside, Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Palmaria Palmata Extract, Carbomer, Linalool, Tocopherol, Limonene, Citronellol.
Currently defined admissible concentration of chemical filters that allows to hope for minimal side effects. Although the degree of 5/5 safety to find, it seems impossible. Some of the most stringent standards in this respect, the Japanese, and some filters have them banned completely, but in Europe and the USA are actively used. I hope Korea is also watching this.
And, in General, after more in depth reading of all these studies, to live is sometimes not desirable. For even tomato from your own garden “unstable, dangerous, penetrating where it is not necessary”
What about the body shop skin defence spf50, I’m afraid he’s just not for people prone to acne, even at the office. the website and claim otherwise. Chem. filters are not toys and are not extracts from cucumber, so it is easy to get a negative reaction. I was not lucky and I found only one review where the girl had lots of pimples after that sunscreen. But most people do not have such problematic skin and enjoy a light, fluid texture. So I here is another thought. We who are forever fighting with acne, use a lot of acids, retinol, benzyl peroxide, etc. Ie that makes the skin more subtle, updated, removes dead cells more than necessary. Maybe in this case the chemical. the filters are more aggressive? Oh I don’t know…
The result: 1/5 in my memory, this is the most negative reaction to a sunscreen in my life. Was dense, greasy, pore-clogging, but not “breaking the entire system, protective and regenerative functions.” And all this in the body shop for a very large sum of money. Conclusion: only Asians! They can also mess up like my last the saem, but the oiliness of the skin compared to this — the little things of life.
