BY TERRY Sun Designer Palette | Product Review

By Terry is a brand I discovered very recently and I have only tried a couple of their products but I have to say so far I have been extremely impressed by every single one. For a long time I had heard so many Youtubers talk about their products but unfortunately the seriously hefty price tag always stopped me from purchasing them, as I wasn’t sure if I wanted to splurge so much money on something I wasn’t sure I would even like.

Their products tend not be anything revolutionary or that other brands don’t have, however after having tried them I can say their quality is incredible and in most cases nothing like what other brands have to offer, so I can say that so far the price tag is somewhat justified.

The first product I tried from this brand was a highlighting powder, very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, but better! It is their Imperlious Voile de Pearle, and although its meant to be a highlighter I actually use it as a setting powder. I did a full blogpost on this item which I will link here.

Summer Staples – Sunscreen!

Finding a good sunscreen has probably been my biggest beauty struggle.  As you may know if you have been following this blog for a while, my skin is combination but on the t-zone it is very much on the oily side, so most sunscreens brake me out. In the recent years there have been more and more oil free sunscreens coming on to the market but my biggest problem with sunscreens is their texture. Despite being oil-free a lot of them still feel very sticky and don’t sit very well under makeup. I also feel like many of them including those which claim to have a thin texture like Benefit’s Dream Screen, still make my skin feel very heavy and my pores feel clogged, which is not a great feeling especially when you already have very oily skin.

Like I said earlier I have tried both high end and drugstore and mostly all oil free and light textured sunscreens,  but I have to say after years of hunting around for a good product to protect me from the sun, I have found my match from a brand I really have never used much before and this is the Elizabeth Arden. Their 8 Hour Cream Sun Defence is a dream product, a little on the pricier side for a sunscreen, it is definitely worth every penny! It is oil free, acts a moisturiser as well as a sunscreen which means you don’t have to apply as much product on your skin, sits beautifully under make, does not leave a heavy feeling on the skin or a white cast and offers very high protection to prevent hyper pigmentation and harmful UV rays.
