^ This is a sample
Texture & Scent:
This is more fluid compared to the old UV Expert Neuroshield one. Upon application it feels a little oily (just a little), but it dries down to a non-sticky finish (takes time though... about 20 minutes or so). This one is also less shiny than the aforementioned Neuroshield one:
The one i got is a sample. The real thing comes in a plastic tube with a twist off cap! :)
This sunblock lasts the entire day one me, which is really good! :)
Price & Availability:
This sunblock is priced at RM165, and should be available at most Lancome counters.
This is for daily use! :)
I got this sample in a mailer from Lancome, so like a good sunblock-junkie i HAD to try it out! So here's my mini take on this new item! :D
Upon application, this feels alot more fluid and less shiny than its predecessor, which i'm really happy for! If you ask me personally, i feel that other than the texture and shine factor, not much has changed (I may be wrong as this is just a mini review, the 1ml sample does not allow me to test it out for a longer period)! :)
Alas, i found the reason for the not-so-sticky factor - DENATURED ALCOHOL! *sobs* Knowing that my skin does breakout from this ingredient, i'll have no choice but to not repurchase this one! :(
