Review: Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover SPF 18

Skin Remaker Pore Cover Two-way Foundation SPF 18 - Majolica Majorca

Here’s my HG powder-foundation of the moment: Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover SPF 18. 🙂

Being the woman on-the-go that I am recently, it’s really hard to wear full makeup on an everyday basis. I just usually dab on some concealer, swipe some lip gloss and curl my lashes as my usual primp-and-pamper routine. On the other hand, there are several days when I have to doll up lest I might look too underdressed or under-made-up, which is an off-kilter to most of the events I go.

I must say that I just gotta hand it over to Majo’s Skin Remaker Pore Cover powder-foundation when it comes to the weight and coverage that I want. It is a two-way foundation that claims “to help correct uneven skin tone for perfectly smooth and flawless skin instantly.”

A powder foundation that maintains skin looking silky smooth. With just one stroke, unsightly pores disappear. Skin appears translucent and smooth just like a porcelain doll. Majolica Majorca

Nivea teaches us the right way to apply sunscreen

These days, the scorching summer heat surely reminds (or rather, demands) us to apply copious amounts of sunscreen.

But, according to Dr. Stephan Ruppert, Director of Nivea Sun UV Protection Research, “Only very few people apply the amount recommended by the EU – around 36 grams or 6 teaspoons for an adult.”

I, myself, am guilty as charged. I am not the type of person who would apply sunscreen religiously (except for the face of course), nor the type of person who would measure the amount of sunscreen she applies.

Needless to say, it’s not just during summer that we should apply sunscreen. It should be applied every time we get exposed to the sun, protecting our skin against harmful sunrays. I know that most of us are already aware of the damaging effects of UV rays brought to our skin—from sunburn to skin cancer. Although sunburn would be an “it” thing this season, skin cancer (such as melanoma) is never “cool”. 😉

Going back, merely applying sun block won’t do you good if you’re not doing it the right way. Nivea has developed these easy-to-follow guidelines on how much you should apply your sunscreen in order to reap its full benefits of maximum sun protection.

Nivea’s rule of thumb for adults & children

Dr. Beate Uhlmann, the brains behind these guidelines, explains us how to apply the correct amount of sunscreen:

How to apply the right amount of sunscreen by NIVEA

You can’t go wrong if you use the length of your own hand to gauge the right amount. Apply twice this amount to each leg (don’t forget your feet), to your chest and stomach area, and to your back. This allows you to reap the full benefits of the sun protection factor, and you can feel safe and protected in the sun. A hand’s length of sunscreen is equivalent to about 15 sprays of Nivea Sun spray.

The length of an adult’s hand is also the basis for gauging the appropriate amount of sunscreen for children. This amount is adjusted according to their age and height and then applied to the individual body zones as described above. (more…)



Something New: L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream SPF18.

L'Oreal Revitalift Day Cream SPF 18

My mom has loved L’Oreal Revitalift ever since I let her try the Double Lifting Cream for the face, and I’m sure she’s gonna be excited as soon as she finds out this new addition to the Revitalift line–L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream with SPF 18.

This is L’Oreal’s first anti-aging product with whitening benefits. It claims to target wrinkles and firmness while prevents skin darkening and age spots. Thanks to its Pro-Retinol A which stimulates cell renewal to reduce wrinkles, and Vitamin B3 that inhibits the melanin transfer to cells correcting and fighting against dark spots.

What’s  actually amazing with this skin care product is that it’s fortified with SPF18 which protects the skin from harmful UV rays.

Skin is moisturized immediately, leaving a smooth and brighter, more luminous complexion. After 4 weeks, it claims that you can already see a huge glowing difference into your skin.

I took a pea size of this pearly smooth cream, and it easily melts into the skin upon application without the sticky or greasy feel.

My mom claims that Revitalift works for her. It really moisturizes her skin, leaving a radiant glow to it. Well, how can I question her with the way she looks (she’s currently in her mid-40s)?
