The worst product I’ve ever tried.

That is, doubtless, the worst formulated product ever to cross my path in 25 years. I purchased this Cay Pores and skin Isle Glow Face Lotion SPF 45 from Sephora on my latest journey to L.A., totally eager to champion it, anticipating it to be sensible. Winnie Harlow is the face behind the model, Winnie being the attractive mannequin with vitiligo, who says that after struggling a sunburn and subsequent solar injury throughout an out of doors shoot in 2018, she needed to create “better-for-you skincare and suncare safety’, to “preserve all pores and skin tones glowing and guarded all year long.”

She has not succeeded.

To say it’s a disappointment doesn’t convey simply how dangerous (and harmful) it’s. I might be astonished if this handed any type of stability testing. I might be equally shocked if it has any security evaluation connected to it.

The packaging (componentry) shouldn’t be suited to the formulation.
The formulation won’t pump via it with ease.
The formulation shouldn’t be steady. It’s break up (separated) contained in the bottle. Shaking does nothing, and you aren’t suggested to shake it on the packaging, that means try to be good to go from the off.
When you do handle to get it out of the bottle, it instantly splits, leaving a watery snail path and lumps of pearlised pigment.
Once you rub it in, it separates out much more leaving patches of pigment in several areas after which…
it capsules.

Notice that you may nonetheless see the model title clearly on the bottle.

It’s possible you’ll assume this doesn’t matter. You’ll be flawed. It issues in SPF greater than some other product, as a result of if the filters should not evenly unfold all through the formulation you’re going to burn.
And you’ll definitely not be getting an SPF score of 45. Bear in mind this difficulty with Trustworthy Magnificence from 7 years in the past? (now remedied)

On your additional data:

The solar filters are avobenzone, octisalate and octocrylene.

The total substances are:
Water, Butyloctyl Salicylate, Sodium Potassium Aluminum Silicate, Diisopropyl Sebacate, Diisopropyl Adipate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Lauryl Lactate, Glycerin, Mica, Propanediol, Glyceryl Stearate, Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Fruit Extract, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Ferulic Acid, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Cetyl Phosphate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Silica, Caprylyl Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Chlorphenesin, Aminomethyl Propanol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Lactate, Sodium PCA, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, Myroxylon Pereirae (Balsam Peru) Oil,

And to cap all of it off, the title of the product has nearly fully rubbed off after being held just a few occasions by completely different members of my crew.

This isn’t a superb product. As long-term readers will know, I actually by no means do that, however there’s nothing about this product that I can advocate. Moreover, I feel you might doubtlessly be at critical threat of burning your pores and skin in case you use it.

I’m not linking to it. However I will hyperlink to those articles and movies that I’ve subsequently discovered. That is no dangerous batch. This can be a constantly dangerous formulation. Past disappointing.
