When i received the Neutrogena Fine Fairness Compact, i immediately tried it & fell in love with it. I actually shared it with my mum & i finished mine already. I have bought my own compact because i like so much.
Feel free to click to read the description & also the ingredient list.
It got sunscreen that protects your skin from the sun plus vitamin c & licorice too. Talking about getting a lot more than the usual coverage that we wanted,huh? Now, lemme start yapping about this product.
- HYPOALLERNIC - CHECK
- FRAGRANCE-FREE - CHECK
- NON-COMEDOGENIC - CHECK
- HUMIDITY, SWEAT & SEBUM RESISTANT - CHECK
Packaging-wise, i think it's ok.
It has a very wide mirror (love the mirror!) & has a separate space for the sponge. Though i really don't use the sponge since i always use a kabuki brush when i apply this. I find it really hygienic that it got a cover for the powder so you're sure that no dirt whatsoever will fall on the powder when you opened it.
It might not be 'compact' since it is long, but it is light. Other compact powders might be small, but it's a bit heavy, while this might look big, but it's lighter than it is!
I haven't tried applying it wet since i'm really not fond of heavy coverage, but I'm sure it will provide a good once since it being dry is already great..how much more if it's wet...
I like this so much that i don't need to try out anymore compact powders. I have found a good one that works for me so the search for compact powder is done. I will not risk my skin anymore, I have become to trust Neutrogena because their products are really good. Actually, the thing that stopped my acne is all because of the good ol' Neutrogena bar, which i'll do a review some time.
While i might be yapping about how i like about this, there are still some things that i would just like to point out. If you applied to much of this, it would give you that somewhat chalky/powdery-look. So you have to be a bit careful in doing so. This worked great for me because i got oily-skin. It feels like as i oil up, i just look dewy, because of it being somewhat 'chalky/powdery' (if applied liberally), so i guess that girls who have dry skin would need to really make sure that their skin is moisturized before usage..or else you'll end up looking like a corpse!
Based on what i remember, it is only available in 2 shades (correct me if im wrong,girls). So there's not much shade selection (here in the Philippines).
As for the price...Uh-oh..i forgot how much the exact price is since it's been a while since i bought it but i think it's somewhere around Php 700 (approx $15+). Might be a bit expensive compare to others available in the department store, but with the quality that you are getting you really do get your money's worth & much more....honto ni!
So after all that i'll do a bit of a summary..
- true to its description!
- wide mirror
- might be a bit expensive for some
- limited shade selection
- can be somewhat bulky
- can be somewhat chalky/powdery when applied liberally
Will i buy it?
Definitely! This is a must-buy product for me.
Have you tried this one?
I would humbly suggest that you do especially if you have a sensitive-skin. It is true to its promise!
That's it for now.. Hope you find this post helpful.
Have a great day!
