I’m no stranger to asap products and have already raved about their incredible DNA Serum, which has not only made my skin look plumper and younger, it’s had an astonishing impact on clearing and reducing the hormonal acne I have been suffering from since I gave birth to my children. It is hands down one of The.Best.Serums.On.Earth. However, I digress. Back to foundation…
Asap Skin Perfecting Mineral Foundation is a lightweight mineral foundation and primer combined into one advanced formula. Now when they say lightweight, they really do mean a light-as-air texture – your skin does feel as though it can breathe with this one. That’s good. Unfortunately because my skin has been playing up lately I really haven’t been able to get away with this one on its own because it is very sheer, it doesn’t cover so much as it seems to ‘blur’ your imperfections and give you a lovely glow. If you have great skin and just want a light touch of makeup, this would probably be enough. If, like me at the moment, you’re rocking some dark circles and some pimples you’re going to probably want to team it with a great concealer and a powder too.
Another benefit is the primer-like qualities of this. It leaves the skin smooth, silky and somehow manages to make pores look smaller. That’s a great thing for me now that I am almost 40 and can see that my pores are getting larger. Ugh.
And of course the other nice thing about mineral foundations is that they often have skin care benefits in addition to coverage. Asap liquid mineral foundation is no exception and the company claims it corrects, protects and improves the skin with every application. Asap is Australia’s number one selling cosmeceutical skin care range, so as you might expect there’s more to this than just cover, the natural minerals are combined with revolutionary skin active technology to improve skin heath, reduce the appearance of pores and stimulate cell production for a smoother, less lined complexion. I love that this product actually works to make the skin healthier.
It’s a beautiful product and one I look forward to using once my skin is more under control. It’s also available in powder form for those that prefer powder, or both products can actually be used in combination for more coverage.
