Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Lunar New Year everyone!
It’s been a while since i’ve sat down and wrote a little review for you all! I thought this product review would be the most appropriate for this time of the year.
Winter season brings harsher weather which ultimately stresses the skin quite a bit. While adjusting to the climate change, you are reintroducing your skin to something new and really you don’t want to add more than you need, risking your skin to react. AND sunscreen is one of those things I have a hard time with, whether it is the scent, the white cast, the stickiness or oilness of the product, I can’t bring myself to apply sunscreen underneath the CC cushion KNOWING that I should. So, when I was given the opportunity to try and review the andLABXYLITOL Mild Sun Cushion I had my doubts and kind of had my guard up. But surprisingly…it’s not what I was expecting!
Now…let’s get into it.
At first glance, it’s just like any other cushion. It’s compacted and comes with of course a cushion. XYLITOL describes this Mild Sun Cushion as “low irritation sun cushion that is mild and controls sebum with xylitol and plant component having skin cooling effect and low irriation moisturizing ingredients making you feel fresh”
I would say for me the description is a pretty point on. My skin showed zero reaction whether wearing it alone or with a CC cushion on top, it was so mild that when applying it almost felt like water. With it being water like it was definitely moisturizing and gave it that “cooling effect” making the skin feel fresh. Often times I find sunscreens giving a white cast look, even with foundation on, with XYLITOL it didn’t do that at all which i’m assuming is because of the how light weight the formula is. And with the question of this sun cushion being light weight; does it have a high enough SPF? Yes, it does – having a SPF 50+/PA+++ is basically the same as any other CC cushions out there, without the tint and other benefits.
The scent isn’t too overpowering, it gives off a floral-ish light smell and is quite pleasent I can say.
The only thing that really bothers me is how thin the cushion feels and only using it for a month the cushion as you can tell has changed colours. Where I place my fingers on the cushion has now made a dent so it doesn’t really bounce back to its shape.
Overall I quite enjoy the cushion and do see myself repurchasing once I am done. Price point is really not that expensive at Jolse $15.98 USD. This product can easily last me for a few more months as little can go a long way…I love actually just wearing it on my own without any foundation on going for the complete natural everyday look.
This completes my little review, hope it wasn’t too boring!
Wishing all of you good health, joy and prosperity for the years to come!
