LORAC Oil Free Neutralizer For the Face
Top Questions See all 3 Q&A
My skin is tricky, to put it mildly, and this product, which I've used for several years now, has been heaven-sent. If I'm putting on full make-up, which I do only a couple times a month, I dab and blend this over Shiseido moisturizer, but just on those areas in need of color-correction, such as the nose and chin. I then apply a light layer of LORAC foundation, using one of her egg-shaped sponges. With reasonably careful blending, this gives me a near-porcelain canvas on which to apply the rest of my makeup. That's a glorious feat, given the big bag of nasty tricks my skin has historically played on me.
And if I'm not doing full makeup, I apply Shiseido moisturizer and then mix one half-pump of this product with Shiseido SPF 40 sunscreen. I then use my fingers to smoothe it over my face, neck, and d�colletage. Again, with just reasonable care, this leaves me looking as if I'm not wearing any makeup on my skin and that I have a naturally good (though not flawless) complexion.
I'm a working mother, so time is valuable. A product's effect must greatly outweigh its hassle, or I can't make it part of my daily routine. Indeed, this is the first review I've taken time out to write, but I feel strongly that this product could ease the suffering of other "hot-house flowers", to use a favorite euphemism.
One woman asked whether this product could work as a foundation on her very fair skin. To quote Sarah Palin, "You betcha." Maybe that means I'm a vampire, but 30 years ago I accepted my skin color and stopped harming myself trying to get a tan. Beauty comes in all colors. Pretty is as pretty does.
And this protects you from the different powders, concealers, base.
I want to try this from my face, I want to protect my face with something natural.
