We all like things to be easy don’t we? For that reason I am always on the lookout for a product that applies quickly and easily with a foundation finish, but will not exacerbate the sunblock slick I have on my skin, or ball up into those annoying little blobs of product that rub off. Seriously, what actually is that? It makes me crazy. Anyway, enter The Big easy by Benefit. What a truly fantastic ‘I-don’t-ever-want-to-be-without-it’ product this is.
Used either on its own, or over my lashings of zinc sunblock, the liquid to powder formula glides on effortlessly and leaves the skin surface looking smooth and beautifully even toned and with a slightly matt, but not at all chalky finish. It acts a little like a primer on the skin, balancing moisture and controlling oil to keep the complexion looking better for longer.
The light to medium coverage can be adapted. I apply a small. pearl sized drop to my fingertips, then blend from the centre of the face outwards using my warm fingertips, but you could also apply it with a foundation brush if you wanted a little more cover.
What’s more, the formula is oil-free and non-comedogenic, contains broad spectrum SPF30 and antioxidants to help protect the skin from environmental onslaught.
In a nutshell, this product now lives in my handbag and is my go-to for daily wear and touch-ups when I want to look more polished – especially after topping up my sunblock.
It’s not out yet, but mark it in your diary, it’s available May 3rd from Benefit stores.
