With so many brands and products out there, it can sometimes get a little confusing. Especially when it comes to skincare, it can be hard to get your head around what your skin actually needs. So we’re putting products to the test, so you don’t have to. This time, we’re trying out Skingredients Skin Shield SPF 50, to let you know if it’s worth adding to your online basket.

What it is:

Basically, Skingredients Skin Shield is a mineral SPF, which works as your daily moisturiser. SPF is one of the most important products to use on your skin EVERY day, but it can be a little tricky sometimes. Normal SPFs can sometimes make your skin look greasy, paler, cause flashback, or just not work under makeup. But Skin Shield solves all those problems, while protecting your skin. It’s lightly peach-tinted, meaning it’ll help you avoid that pasty post-SPF look and any photo flashback. Plus, it works as a pollution shield, and it’s packed with vitamins to make sure your skin gets all it needs.

Suitable for everyone, no matter what your skin type, you can use it as both your moisturiser and your makeup primer. So you get the best of both worlds!

How to use it:

Use this baby as the last step in your skincare routine. After you cleanse, tone, or whatever products your skin needs, simply use one pump of this for all over your face. Rather than rubbing, simply use light tapping motions to press the product onto your skin. So there’s no dragging your skin up or down unnecessarily. Then, if you’re applying makeup, just let this dry for a few seconds before adding any more product.

What we thought: 

I’ve been using this product every day, for about six months. It’s safe to say it’s up there with my favourite skincare products ever, because it does exactly what it says on the tin, and leaves your skin looking fresh and fabulous. It may seem a little pricey at first, coming in at €42 for 50mls. But a little goes a looong way, and it’s packed with good ingredients to protect your skin. A must-have!
