Choosing the best foundation for you is tricky, but when you have sensitive skin, it’s even harder to find a formula that resists creasing or causes peeling and redness. That’s why the creators of Tower 28 Beauty have created the new SunnyDays SPF 30 skin-friendly sun foundation. It is the first ever foundation of the brand, a two-in-one mineral foundation for sun protection and the first complexion product approved by National Eczema Association.
Tower 28 is an AAPI-owned beauty brand founded by Amy Liu who takes care of her skin sensitivity. Famous makeup artist Kirin Bhatty teamed up with Tower 28 to create this foundation, saying she was inspired to create “a range of shades that had integrity through its inclusiveness. As a makeup artist, I’m always someone who had to mix to create foundation work. for my clients with multiple skin tones and shades, so this is a line of flexible shades that can be used across a wide range of shades. ”
Here’s what else you need to know about the latest version of the lively brand:
The decomposition of the formula
Let’s start with the ingredients list. “According to SkinSafe, a recommendation platform that ranks products based on their likelihood of causing sensitivities and allergies, Tower 28 SunnyDays Foundation achieves 82% on a 100% scale“says Sabina Wizemann, senior chemist at the GH Institute Beauty Lab. It is free of known allergens such as lanolin, parabens, propylene glycol and more, but contains fragrance-related ingredients, coconut derivatives, and common preservatives that can irritate some, she says. So while it’s suitable for sensitive skin, it’s not necessarily the improve option out there.
However, it has some pretty beneficial and skin-friendly ingredients like glycerin, which helps retain moisture within the skin, along with aloe vera, which soothes the skin after UV exposure, as well as sage white, which has anti-inflammatory properties, according to Michele Green, MD, a cosmetic dermatologist in New York. Of course, it also has zinc oxide which, according to Dr. Green, protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays, is non-comedogenic (so it’s great for acne-prone skin) and is preferred for those with sensitive skin because “the ingredients chemical sunscreens are more likely to cause irritation and potentially worsen skin conditions such as melasma or rosacea. ”
Our honest reviews
Some of our product experts from the Good Housekeeping Institute have given honest reviews on how SunnyDays SPF 30 sun foundation has worked on different skin tones and types, from dry, eczema-prone skin, to mature skin, rosacea and rosacea. mixed skin. Here’s what they thought:
On dry and sensitive skin
- Consistency and coverage: “Its light texture reminds me more of a skin tint or tinted moisturizer than a real foundation. But it’s also very buildable and blendable, which makes it easy to layer my bronzers and cream concealers. I opted for a brush to blend in. thick foundation for I applied mine and thought it would look super clear, but to my surprise and delight, it fell more on the light to medium coverage side. ”
- Sensitivity: “My eczema took it gracefully: during a full day of use, my skin felt normal and not at all irritated by the ingredients.”
- Lasting Power: “It tends to fade a bit during the day, so I’d probably hit it on those days when I want a bright makeup on the go.”
- The bottom line: “As a person with super sensitive skin, I appreciate a formula that lets my skin breathe but also gives me a decent layer of coverage. With this I have found my perfect summer match.” –Jacqueline Saguin, Associate Product and review editor
On mixed skin
- Matching shades: “Choosing my color was a breeze thanks to the helpful online quiz. [At first]I was afraid the color would seem too light, but after applying it and letting it sit on the skin for a few minutes, it was a perfect match. ”
- Coverage and texture: “It gives very light coverage but still covers the redness of my skin. Once it dried, the formula felt so light that I forgot I was wearing something. “
- end: “I didn’t pair it with a powder, so my skin was Very dewy at first (which is not the look I’m used to when wearing makeup). I dried a little, but after a while the shine faded by itself. “
- The bottom line: “I’ll definitely keep looking for this SPF foundation, especially on summer days when I want some coverage but don’t want full makeup.” –Raena Loper, Product Updates and Reviews Editor.
On mature skin affected by rosacea
- First impressions: “It is described as a tinted sunscreen foundation online, but on the packaging it’s called tinted sunscreen, which can get a little confusing. “
- Coverage and texture: When I first used it, I applied it as a foundation, using a brush and a beauty blender, and it evened out my skin tone well, but I wasn’t counting it would give me enough sun protection [when applied in this way]. When I applied it as a sunscreen for the face [which requires more product: about a teaspoon amount for the face and the neck] it stays sticky for a while, but instead of feeling hydrated, it feels heavy and stiff and takes time to dry on the skin. I was certainly aware throughout the day that I was wearing it. Unfortunately, his tint wasn’t enough to cover my redness (I have rosacea), so I’ll refrain from using it in the summer when it’s much warmer outside.
- The bottom line: Overall, I found this tinted sunscreen to be okay, but it’s a little expensive compared to other face sunscreens we’ve tried in our lab. ” –Sabina Wizemann, Senior Chemistry
