At 27, I am just beginning to give a genuine sh*t about my skincare. I know blue light is no joke, and as somebody who functions at a personal computer all day, is frequently on her telephone and then heads dwelling to watch Netflix, I am a classic case. I will be interested to see if a ‘blue light shield’ becomes as vital as an SPF in my skincare routine.
Thinking about I’ve got about 12-15 years of blue light harm below my belt currently, I believed I’d greater go really hard or go dwelling. So I chose Sisley’s most current launch from the line-up of blue shield skincare. And ooooh yes, she’s luxe.
1st impressions obtain ticks all round. I am a sucker for a pump bottle (do not make me dip my paws in a pot please), clean packaging and a smell reminiscent of a spa. The cream itself is a pleasant consistency, not as well thick and not as well thin, and I obtain two pumps is the excellent quantity to cover my face and neck. It sinks in super rapidly. I can barely really feel it inside three seconds, and it really is like practically nothing ever occurred just after 10. If this is meant to have comparable protection powers to an SPF, it really is currently kicking suncream’s arse in terms of comfort.
I had a cocktail of vitamins injected into my face in my quest for glowing skin and it essentially worked
I applied this cream each morning and evening for two weeks and it was often the identical pleasant encounter. No skin reactions, sits effectively below makeup and slid into my skincare routine with ease.
But final results? To be truthful, I’ve got no concept. My skin was hydrated, plump and smooth for confident, but this is not truly something new to me (smug). Mainly because this is much more of a prevention item, like a each day SPF, it really is SO Challenging to inform if it really is essentially carrying out something.
It has been verified that blue light can penetrate even deeper into the skin than UVA & UVB rays, plus dermatologists are beginning to see much more sufferers suffering from pigmentation at a younger age. So I know blue light is not bullsh*t, and in spite of not getting capable to see any adjustments, or what this cream is essentially carrying out I’d rather be protected than sorry. And I am hoping 1 day my 60-year-old self will appear back and say ‘thank God I looked just after my skin’.
General the cream was pleasant to use, and no hinder to my routine, so I will continue applying it. Only time (and a comparison to these who do not use a blue light shield) will ascertain regardless of whether or not it really is producing a large distinction in that aspect. I am not confident if it really is feasible, but if blue light protection and SPF could be developed in the identical item, I’d acquire it in a heartbeat.
