About two weeks ago I attended the press event of SkinWhite’s #BetterMe Campaign as well as Batch 2 of their Captivate Council. I intend to write more in detail about these two, but today I wanted to discuss one of the items I received in the press kit.
This item is the SkinWhite Face Cream Powder, a little unassuming tube that looks like some pimple cream. Upon closer inspection it was actually what they claim to be an innovative moisturizer-turning-into-face-powder product that is unique in the market today. I was immediately intrigued, and put it to the test immediately.
The back says:
The first and only one in the market, SkinWhite Advanced PowerWhitening Face Cream Powder uses a unique technology that amazingly transforms from a moisturizing cream into a light, matte powder when applied onto skin.
It uses an exclusive Advanced Tripower Technology that safely attacks the three stages of melanin production:
- Blocks UV rays from entering the innermost layer of the skin.
- Suppresses melanin production.
- Prevents release of melanin to the uppermost layer of the skin, preventing skin darkening.
It also has Vitanourish Formula that contains Vitamins B3, B5, B6, C, and E, SPF12, for intense moisturization and protection from harmful UV rays.
This product uses Synchronized Whitening action through multiple actives to ensure you achieve your beautiful blush white skin.
Quite a lot of claims really, but I was most attracted by the idea that it’s a moisturizer and face powder in one. Lazy girl thinking at its best, there. I wasn’t too concerned about the whitening part, but I was hoping that this is really a good moisturizer/face base for everyday use.
It comes in a 20-gram tube, with the pink-and-white theme that SkinWhite uses. It ends in a spout, thankfully, which really controls the amount dispensed. It’s a very thick cream, but very spreadable. It took very little time for my skin to adjust to the product, with only a tiny amount of tingling at the beginning. Now it doesn’t react anymore. It spreads easily on the face and feels actually quite nice. I use it mostly as a moisturizer/base, and put on the rest of my makeup on top of it. It shortens my routine by a whole step since it combines the moisturizer and the face base. Sometimes I don’t even put on foundation or BB cream anymore as this suffices on most lazy days.
This 20-gram tube costs only a mere Php69! There is also a 7-gram version that goes for only Php19. The Face Cream Powder comes in four shades: White, Light Beige (my sample), Rose White, and Natural Beige. I’m highly impressed with this product, and I definitely will rebuy this once I run out (which is soon, at the rate I’m using it!).
