Review: Laboratoire Remède Translucent UV Coat
Fortunately, in 2010 we all know that skin deteriorates with age, and sun plays a major role in accelerating the aging process.
This translucent UV coat by Laboratoire Remède contains an SPF 30 and acts as a shield against UV rays that are responsible for collagen degradation.
It's an innovative "all around" beauty protector that combines the action of micronized mineral filters for protection, and iridescent light-reflecting powders.
Its texture is very fluid and light, even the tinted one is very sheer, but provides a fresh, even and radiant result on your skin.
You have to use this over your daily moisturizer and give it at least 30 minutes to see its full potential.
I love using this as an alternative to foundation when I know I'm not going out for much.
In fact, I wouldn't suggest using this as an all-day alternative to foundation because, as it is a TRANSLUCENT fluid and reflects all lights and it may look greasy even if it is oil-free. Only if you wear it for more than 5 -6 though, other than that it's very nice and provides an even finish!
I don't know if you are able to see it in the picture, but I used it on the part of my had that was closer to the camera. If you click on the image and zoom in, you can see the other side of the hand looks a bit drier than the one that has the Remède Translucent UV coat.
How cool is that? Looking radiant, without looking oily!
Shake well before you use this product and use a thin layer. Of course, be careful with it because it is very very fluid.
The Laboratoire Remède Translucent UV coat is available in 4 shades (invisible to medium dark - which is my shade) and can be purchased online at blissworld.com for $40 (yes, I know, not affordable for students or people on a budget...like me LOL).
If you have enough money to afford this, I suggest you give it a try. It's a 4.5/5 for me (only because it can't be used all day long, and for the price you have to pay for innovation LOL)!
Have you ever tried this or anything else from the brand? Tell me your opinion about it.
