as y'all know, I am a huge Rouge Bunny Rouge addict! So much, indeed, that my blog caught the attention by the lovely Nadin who is RBR's PR manager. She sent me the Prelude In The Clouds - Aqua Primer and the Precious Velvet - Flawless Face Powder in piano forte (which I've already presented in my video). I tried these products for 2 weeks to give a proper opinion on them. To make known that I got these items officially for review purposes I'm gonna add some press pictures with permission further down.
This is my pic:
The Aqua Primer is a sheer water-based primer that makes it possible for all skin types to make the best out of their face make-up. I have combination skin that is acne-prone and highly sensitive but after wearing the primer for two weeks straight my skin actually feels nourished and at ease. Two pumps are enough to cover the entire face. On days where I just wanna apply concealer on certain areas I even use only one pump. The liquid settles into skin in no time, my morning routine doesn't take any longer even though I am applying more with that extra step.
This is what the press kit says about the ingredients:
"Sea-Buckthorn Berry Extract serves as a superb-antioxidant and anti-ageing ingredient that promotes cell tissue regeneration. Iris Florentina Root Extract smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles to create a perfect canvas for other products to be applied to the skin. Saccharide Isomerate provides intensive hydration, firming and smoothing; Bisabolol is used for its anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory capabilities. Vitamin E Acetate and Retinol Palmitate improve skin texture."
I typed the Inci list into www.codecheck.info, where you can find every ingredient.
So, for me the Aqua Primer is a big hit cause it's hard for me to find a product that keeps the balance between sufficient care and oil prevention. Plus, all face products really stay put for longer even in summer time :)
Flawless Face Powder:
I don't need to stress that all RBR products are beautifully packaged - the powder line was even improved to make it look absolutely divine! The box is now flat which gives it that sophisticated look and the sponge is of better quality than it used to be (I've got a bronzer and a highlighting powder in the older version).
I adore the consistency of the powder, I need to check whether at all I applied anything on my face because it blends in very seamlessly at once and gives me a natural finish with medium coverage (my summer freckles still show but not my occasional redness). I don't break out on the powder at all, too. Please keep in mind that my skin tone is rather fair, for darker skin types I would recommend using a bronzer as face powder substitution.
Here is what the press kit says about the consistency and contents:
"An advanced micronisation process guarantees a combination of a velvety and creamy texture for ultimate comfort, perfect adherence, smoothness and an even finish. Innovative ingredients include Papaya Fruit Extract as a natural “face lift” and skin softener, plus Hyssop Extract with soothing properties. Rice Powder imparts a perfectly natural, non-shiny finish."
The full ingredients list can be viewed on codecheck.info. There are small amounts of substances in there that can cause allergic reaction, so please read before purchasing! I never experienced any problems with any of the RBR powders but it's always advisable to see for yourself.
What do you think of the fact that companies send products to bloggers? What's your opinion on this??
