Skin79 is a Korean Brand responsible for creating some incredible BB Creams. I recently purchased one of the new Skin79 Diamond Collections which includes a slew of great goodies for one low price. Included with the set was the Skin79 Diamond All-Day Sun Powder.
Jump ahead to hear the review.
This retails for 24,000 (around $19) won but comes sold in a kit for a mere 53,900 won (around $43). The powder is ideal if you’re wanting extra sun protection and a transparent powder to set your foundation or BB Cream. This has an SPF30 and protects from UV rays A and B. It’s rather great as it offers sheer coverage, evens out skin tone ever so slightly, plus has the added benefit of an SPF 30.
The powder comes housed it the most convenient packaging. A sifter jar holds the powder and the top screws off to reveal a built in puff for smoothing the powder onto face. The puff does a great job of blending the powder onto skin and keeps the task mess free.
The powder itself is very silky and smooth, quite lightweight so once in place it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything at all. It doesn’t cake or flake on dry skin but provides nice even coverage. Although transparent for the most part it does give skin a very nice even finish. It sets BB Cream and foundation as well as mattifies skin ever so slightly.
Overall, I love the idea of a finishing powder that has a strong SPF and multitasks to set my foundation and even out my skin tone. Plus the packaging can’t be beat, loves it!
I purchased this directly from Korea but I have seen it on E-bay for close to regular retail of around $19.99. This isn’t too bad a deal especially if you’re as freaky as I am about sun protection.
If you’re wanting to forgo the nightmare of greasy, oily SPF (many are you know!) this is a great alternative.
