HomeSkin CareThe worst product I've ever tried.

The worst product I’ve ever tried.

That is, no doubt, the worst formulated product ever to cross my path in 25 years. I purchased this Cay Pores and skin Isle Glow Face Lotion SPF 45 from Sephora on my current journey to L.A., totally desirous to champion it, anticipating it to be sensible. Winnie Harlow is the face behind the model, Winnie being the gorgeous mannequin with vitiligo, who says that after struggling a sunburn and subsequent solar harm throughout an outside shoot in 2018, she needed to create “better-for-you skincare and suncare safety’, to “hold all pores and skin tones glowing and guarded all year long.”

She has not succeeded.

To say it’s a disappointment doesn’t convey simply how dangerous (and harmful) it’s. I might be astonished if this handed any type of stability testing. I might be equally shocked if it has any security evaluation hooked up to it.

The packaging (componentry) isn’t suited to the components.
The components won’t pump by it with ease.
The components isn’t steady. It’s break up (separated) contained in the bottle. Shaking does nothing, and you aren’t suggested to shake it on the packaging, which means you have to be good to go from the off.
When you do handle to get it out of the bottle, it instantly splits, leaving a watery snail path and lumps of pearlised pigment.
If you rub it in, it separates out much more leaving patches of pigment in several areas after which…
it capsules.

Notice which you can nonetheless see the model identify clearly on the bottle.

You could assume this doesn’t matter. You’ll be improper. It issues in SPF greater than another product, as a result of if the filters should not evenly unfold all through the components you’ll burn.
And you’ll definitely not be getting an SPF ranking of 45. Keep in mind this challenge with Sincere Magnificence from 7 years in the past? (now remedied)

To your additional data:

The solar filters are avobenzone, octisalate and octocrylene.

The total elements are:
Water, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Sodium Potassium Aluminum Silicate, Diisopropyl Sebacate, Diisopropyl Adipate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Lauryl Lactate, Glycerin, Mica, Propanediol, Glyceryl Stearate, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Ferulic Acid, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cetyl Phosphate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Aminomethyl Propanol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Myroxylon Pereirae (Balsam Peru) Oil,
Cupressus Sempervirens Leaf/Nut/Stem Oil, Coffea Arabica (Espresso) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Oil, Amyris Balsamifera Bark Oil, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Limonium Gerberi Extract, Limonene, Linalool, Benzyl Benzoate, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides

And to cap all of it off, the identify of the product has virtually totally rubbed off after being held a number of occasions by completely different members of my staff.

This isn’t a very good product. As long-term readers will know, I actually by no means do that, however there’s nothing about this product that I can suggest. Moreover, I believe you possibly can probably be at severe threat of burning your pores and skin should you use it.

I’m not linking to it. However I will hyperlink to those articles and movies that I’ve subsequently discovered. That is no dangerous batch. It is a persistently dangerous components. Past disappointing.
