The Laven­dert­inted Sun­screen That Works as Makeup

Herworld (Singapore) - - TO KNOW - – CT

What it is: Sun­play claims its Skin Aqua Tone Up UV Essence SPF50/PA++++ is the first of its kind. It pro­tects from the sun while the laven­der tint takes away skin dull­ness. Laven­der is a mix of two colours: pink, which neu­tralises sal­low­ness; and blue, which makes skin more translu­cent. To­gether, they lift shad­ows so that your face im­me­di­ately looks brighter – the same way a colour cor­rect­ing con­cealer would work. The sun­screen also has fine pearl par­ti­cles for a gen­tle il­lu­mi­nat­ing ef­fect. Ver­dict: “I was wary at first – would it leave a lilac cast on my skin? Well, it didn’t. It was light­weight and blended eas­ily into my skin. Its colour-cor­rect­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties bright­ened the darker ar­eas of my face – the sides of my nose, my chin and the cor­ners of my mouth. My skin looked rosier. I par­tic­u­larly liked how, as it was a sun­screen and colour cor­rec­tor in one, it saved me an ex­tra skin­care step. Best part? I used less con­cealer than usual. It costs $27.90.”
