This week’s incredibly useful Gorgeous Giveaway comes to us by way of San Francisco’s Bella Schneider, founder of the LaBelle Day Spas & Salons in the Bay Area. She has graciously offered 3 sets of the Bella Schneider Beauty Culminé Glow & Go Tinted Moisturizing Sunscreen and Culminé Firm and Glow Serum (a total value of $95).
BSB Culminé Glow & Go Tinted Moisturizing Sunscreen provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection in a tinted moisturizer that works for all skin types. Its anti-aging formulation provides hydration with a sheer tint that can be worn under makeup or on bare skin for a beautiful glow. Used daily, antioxidant-infused Glow & Go helps protect against
TERRA FIRMA GEL MINERAL BRONZER
This liquid mineral bronzer is a little jewel that can be used on the face or body for an instant sunkissed glow. The bronzer gel is streak free, dries in seconds and wears well. Chemical free formula with essential oil blend – no mineral oil or parabens!
‘ABOUT FACE’ TINTED MOISTURIZER
This is a splendid daily moisturizer that gives just a hint of a sunless luminous glow, as it retexturizes and smooths the skin. It’s full of good for you ingredients like vitamins B3 and B5 and aloe leaf juice too. Can be worn with or without foundation – but add your sunscreen for daily use.
Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer with SPF – Wendy aka MWC has succeeded in corrupting me. I have finally tried a “make up” and I actually like it! I have some trouble with melasma which I am working to get rid of (it is a constant battle, that is for sure). I have reached the age of 43 without ever having worn any sort of foundation or makeup. But after hearing her gently (or not so) suggest that my face could do with a touch of coverage, and getting sick of looking at uneven skin on my face, I gave in. I can’t bring myself to do anything fancy – the primer, foundation and then setting powder – what is that all about? However, the tinted moisturizer seemed to solve a few issues: helping even out my skin tone, have SPF, and look like my skin. So I am hooked on this stuff. Now if I could only figure out how to make this stuff not come off on my clothes ………..
FINAL VERDICT: GGI (GOTTA GET IT) If you are a low maintenance woman (or like me just plain make up retarded), this is definitely for you for $30
ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR LIGHT STAY IN PLACE MAKEUP SPF10 – Say goodbye to your foundation sliding off your face by lunchtime. This formula stays where you put it and really lasts well during the day. The coverage is sheer, so its looks very natural. My only critique is the SPF10 – for Palm Beach, I need to use a sunscreen under it to get up to the required SPF30 – and that adds a layer I would rather not have to wear on extra humid days. I usually put on Ti Silc Z-Silc Sunblock SPF30 which is non-greasy and light. Double Wear definitely controls shine more than others I have used, so it gets my two thumbs up vote.
FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – EL foundations rock, and this one is a goody.
