WHAT STANDS OUT:
The application is definitely different. I’m not sure the sponge is really winning, but it’s definitely interesting :)
It’s a fuller-coverage look in my opinion. You can get a dusting of color and some pretty decent coverage with it, plus SPF 30!
It definitely lasted and you definitely need to be ok with a more powdered look. A light mist of setting spray will help if you have drier skin
Oily skin types may LOVE this! Just make sure to clean the applicator now and then, womp womp
If you’re not loving the idea of this application, you can always try the Jane Iredale powder foundation that also has SPF in it! HERE.
IFFY INGREDIENTS + EWG RATING:
These were the not-so-great ingredients that didn’t pass the Rule of 3. Click below to find out all the details:
Titanium Dioxide 1 to 3
CI 77288 2 to 5
I followed up with the brand on packaging and mica sourcing. Their response is below:
“The packaging of Powder-Me SPF is recyclable, but not the internal sponge or applicator. The container is not made of post-consumer recycled material. Jane Iredale uses mica that is manufactured wholly under strict laboratory conditions. The laboratory purification and synthetic manufacture of minerals is done in order to ensure that the minerals are free of the contaminates that occur in the minerals’ natural state.”
