Just a quick beauty review for you today. I had mentioned that I'm in the search for a good sunscreen that won't melt off my face in the summer, won't break me out and also gives me some coverage to even out skin tone. This search has been harder than I anticipated due to my super sensitive skin (if I don't break out, sometimes I get a rash, but most of the time I just break out). So when I saw this Supergoop! Barre to Bar set I though I would give it a shot (I kept seeing the brand in magazines and such so I finally caved into the marketing). I love trying little sampler sets like these since it allows me to try it without committing to the full size. So here's a quick rundown of each product:
The Daily Correct CC Cream in Light/Medium: in short, a dud. It was greasy and gave my skin a pinkish tint (obviously not a match for my asian skin tone).
The City Sunscreen Serum: I loooooove this! This is probably the only thing I would rebuy out of this whole kit (and probably the only thing I will use up). This is a super lightweight sunscreen with zero sunscreen smell and no greasiness. Also doesn't break me out. This could become my everyday go-to sunscreen for under foundation (if I don't find a good tinted sunscreen).
Perk up lip and cheek treat: I didn't really like this for my lips and I never used it for my cheeks. The taste/smell is subtle but slightly of sunscreen (it's SPF 50). I prefer to use my RMS lip shine in sacred even though it doesn't have SPF. We'll see, I might keep giving this a chance.
Defense Refresh Setting Mist: I originally loved this product thinking I could just wear my regular foundation and then use this as a setting mist to provide extra SPF coverage. However after using it for a week, I'm not a huge fan. First, you can definitely tell there's alcohol in their formula (especially if you don't shake it as well as you're supposed to) and that alcohol can definitely cause a sting near your eyes even if you have them closed. Also the mist doesn't really give you all that much SPF coverage since it's really just tiny droplets of SPF (you'd really have to spray it on good for actual SPF coverage I think). And lastly I sprayed these on my arms in an attempt to use up the product and got it all over my car's black leather interior. That stuff is hard to get off, lol.
So final verdict? Don't buy this set but do check out that serum if you're looking for a good everyday base sunscreen. Thus the search for a sunscreen with coverage continues, though I am now a huge fan of that serum (I use it under my usual SPF 15 lotion for extra coverage). In the meantime I'm trying out several products form Bella Cuore and will let you know what I find!
