[Sofina] – Long Keep Base UV

img_20170917_204332.jpg Hi peeps! I am just on a roll with reviews! I have so many things I’ve tried but never reviewed, it’s kind of insane LOL. Today is something that has been my HG since the beginning of the year, and I have already used up one bottle of this and am on my 2nd bottle. I purchased this item when I went back to Taiwan in the beginning of this year. My cousin was the one that introduced me, I bought one to try, and loved it so much that I hoarded 2 more bottles before I came back. Normally what happens to my hoarded items is that I find something else I want to try and completely ignore the fact that I hoarded these things. But this one is different. I’ve never tried a primer so good! Yes! this is a primer!

It is a very light weight primer, with a hint of pink in it to brighten up skin. It not only aids in the longevity of your makeup, but also brightens and evens out skin tone all in one go. Nowadays, having to wake up at 530am, I often don’t have the energy to put on makeup, so what I’ve been doing a lot is using this primer and just this primer. It does enough to give me enough courage to walk out my door LOL.

All you need is about the size of a quarter, it spreads so easily and disappears on your skin, but you know it’s there because your face just got brighter!

Here’s a swatch of it, I actually did a swipe and a blended out portion. If you look very carefully, you can see the skin just below the knuckles is slightly brighter than the rest of the hand, it’s not lighting, it’s this stuff!

The effect is every so slight, there’s no colour difference but it just does something to the skin to make it look more refreshed.

To conclude…

Colour: it’s pink, but doesn’t really show up on the skin

Texture: very liquidy, blends super easy

Coverage: there really isn’t any…

Scent: I honestly don’t smell anything other than the typical sunscreen smell

Sun protection: SPF 25 PA++, again always add another layer of sunscreen under this

Price: I got this in Taiwan for about $13 CND per 25ml bottle, they don’t come any bigger. But one bottle lasted me until Jul (? cant remember) from beginning of January, and I basically used it everyday

Mine is made in Japan. It was sold in Taiwan in original Japanese packaging. I heard some people had bought ones that were made in Taiwan, but I’ve yet to see them.

Overall: 5/5 I will definitely be repurchasing these over and over. The quality of this product is probably similar to the high end primers that are out there, but at $13 per bottle instead of $50. I just wish it came in a larger size!
