Instant Mineral SPF 30
Instant Mineral SPF 30 provides sun protection with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, and is a mica-based loose powder packaged in a self-contained applicator with a built-in brush. Powder application is sheer, but the brush is merely OK. You’d have to apply this liberally to ensure SPF 30 protection, and doing so is difficult due to the application method. That makes Instant Mineral SPF 30 best as an adjunct to a separate sunscreen or foundation with sunscreen.
This imparts very sheer color and a subtle shine, and has an absorbent finish. Although the formula contains anti-aging peptides and vitamin-based antioxidants, it’s unlikely those ingredients will remain stable in powder form, though they may have some benefit. Consider this for the convenience factor of adding extra sun protection on the go, not for its anti-aging ingredients (those are better supplied from other products such as a serum or moisturizer).
Convenient application for immediate any time sun protection without using an SPF cream or lotion. Silky smooth, finely milled, mineral powder with SPF 30. Indications: Works immediately to block out the sun's harmful UVA/UVB infrared rays to help prevent sunburn, skin damage, freckling & uneven discoloration.
