A dual-action protective primer, this lightweight formula stars light-diffusing particles to blur the visibility of imperfections and unify uneven skin tone, whilst warding against the harmful effects of UV rays with SPF 30. Completely non-greasy and totally undetectable (there’s no chalky film), this creates a perfect base for make up and enriches skin with a cocktail of conditioning nutrients. Mongongo oil, oat extract and vitamin E combine to fortify skin’s fabric – enhancing elasticity and bolstering its natural defences – to leave your complexion smooth, supple and safe from the ravages wrought by the elements. Suitable for all skin types, this creates a beautiful, soft focus effect and lasts for up to eight hours.

The protect and prime are suitable for dry and sensitive skin that is in need for extra layer of moisturizer. The creamy texture of the SPF absorb quickly into the layer of my skin and leaving it protected. The good side of this product is, not only give sun protection but also work prevent dark spot in my skin while returning my natural skin tone.
I did feel that my skin tone is fairer after 2 weeks of using the product every morning. In country like Singapore, the weather always be hot and the sun always rise above the sky. Most people neglecting to use SPF and think that umbrella will do fine, even me think that way. Until I see dark spot and sudden change in my skin tone. the umbrella provide temporary coverage for the sun to not strike directly into skin but it still gonna do skin damage.
This is why SPF play the rules and of course umbrella is not SPF. If you often feel that the sun hurt your skin, try to use SPF. SPF with PA+++ will protect your skin from UVA and UVB, this is suitable for those who is outdoor active.
“Protect and Prime doesn’t cause any skin breakout, makeup pilling or skin purging at all. It doesn’t melt nor leaving white spot trail around my face, it does feel like wearing another layer of face cream.”
The cream smell of sunflower seed oil, that is quite strong in my nose but I love the sunflower oil, so it doesn’t matter for me. the smell gone after few minutes of application. Since its really rich and creamy, it does absorb so quick into my skin and sometimes work as primer base too. SPF 30 meaning that the protection valid for 30 minutes after application and need to reapply after 30 minutes. There is no indication of PA+++ on the packaging, so I guess there is none of it. For those who often work outdoor, you need to think to use the SPF without PA+++
This product I do love, because it allow me to use it indoor when I running to meet my client. some office have a large windows and the sun sometimes can cross inside the office, so I need to still using SPF even thou I’m often inside a building. Covering skin with SPF is important for me, because SPF is also the first step to prevent from skin-ageing.
Will I recommend/repurchase? Yes.
