Its been a really long time since I updated! Besides being busy with my daily work, I'm also trying out new products so here's a review of a product I was given awhile ago!
Only the bacterial activity was in the "bad" level, and I'm glad to see that I'm doing fine for the rest of the conditions.
Moving on to introduce their latest product, the ioma Cell Protector SPF 50+ PA+++! Its a sunscreen which does more that preventing sun damage - but also environmental stress (pollution, smoking, climate etc). According to the product info, "the combination of all environmental stress factors can cause premature skin ageing: loss of elasticity and firmness, the appearance of dark spots, loss of radiance and wrinkle formation." This product should be used after your skincare (ioma products are numbered for easy usage, and the number 7 on the product meant it should be used as a step 7, while e.g. moisturizers are 3 and cleansers are 1.)
It is a good size to travel with and the pump is also really cool. You have to twist silver cap to erect the pump.
The product comes out off-white, while fully blending gives your skin a subtle glow.
I have used it daily the past month or so, as a first step for my makeup routine. The product is easily blendable, does not feel dry, but a wee bit sticky. Then I apply my powder foundation and the rest of the routine. I feel that it prolongs the powder and my face is relatively matte for about 6 hours. It doesn't cause me any breakouts or reactions, and I really love it as a primer and sunscreen, withstanding Singapore's humidity.
The ioma Cell Protector SPF 50+ PA+++ is available at Isetan Singapore, at $85 (30ml).
