The worst product I’ve ever tried.

That is, doubtless, 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., absolutely eager to champion it, anticipating it to be sensible. Winnie Harlow is the face behind the model, Winnie being the attractive mannequin with vitiligo, who says that after struggling a sunburn and subsequent solar injury throughout an outside shoot in 2018, she wished to create “better-for-you skincare and suncare safety’, to “preserve 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’d be astonished if this handed any type of stability testing. I’d be equally shocked if it has any security evaluation connected to it.

The packaging (componentry) is just not suited to the method.
The method is not going to pump by means of it with ease.
The method is just not steady. It’s cut up (separated) contained in the bottle. Shaking does nothing, and you aren’t suggested to shake it on the packaging, which means you need 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 numerous areas after which…
it drugs.

Be aware that you would be able to nonetheless see the model title clearly on the bottle.

Chances are you’ll assume this doesn’t matter. You’ll be improper. It issues in SPF greater than some other product, as a result of if the filters should not evenly unfold all through the method you’ll burn.
And you’ll actually not be getting an SPF ranking of 45. Bear in mind this concern with Sincere Magnificence from 7 years in the past? (now remedied)

In your additional information:

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,

And to cap all of it off, the title of the product has virtually fully rubbed off after being held a couple of occasions by totally different members of my workforce.

This isn’t a very good product. As long-term readers will know, I actually by no means do that, however there may be nothing about this product that I can suggest. Moreover, I believe you might doubtlessly be at severe danger of burning your pores and skin if you happen to 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 constantly dangerous method. Past disappointing.
