AVON SMOOTH N WHITE WHITENING PRESSED POWDER SPF 16- REVIEW

AVON SMOOTH N WHITE WHITENING PRESSED POWDER SPF 16- REVIEW

11 gms for INR 179

Company Says:- Look naturally fair and fresh all day !
¤ Contains Licorice extract to help lighten skin and SPF 16 UVA/UVB protects to prevent skin darkening n sun damage
¤ Ultra absorbing, micro-powders blend evenly n smoothly for that fresh feeling
¤ Oil-free, Dermatologist-tested, Clinically tested, Non-comedogenic n Non-acnegenic

To Use:- Pat and smooth gently on face.

Ingredients:- Not Listed

Available in 4 shades:-
1. Almond
2. Golden Beige
3. Natural
4. Soft Bisque

My Opinion:- I was using Revlon Touch n Glow Moisturising Powder since long. But about 2 months back I came across this baby and immediate placed an order for it since it was much cheaper than Revlon and also came with SPF unlike it. So right now I am using this pressed powder in the shade Almond which perfectly matches my skintone. This compact scores over the Revlon Moisturising Powder as it contains sun protection (SPF 16) and I can wear it alone over my moisturiser. It feels very light on my skin and it instantly brightens up my skin. The applicator, that comes with it, is good enough but I personally prefer using a fluffy powder brush to apply it
  
                       It has a mild floral fragrance which I love but doesn't linger on for long. The best thing about this pressed powder is that it stays on for long and just a single touch up during the day is enough. I have oily skin and this pressed powder really absorbs the oil from the surface of my skin but after 2-3 hours oil shows up on my T-zone only. But it scores above Revlon Moisturizing Powder also because it is color true and does not oxide on oily skin. It is very moisturising and doesn't dry out my skin. Also it doesn't leave a white cast on my skin. Doesn't clog the pores and also no chance of breaking out since its non acnegenic. I love the packaging as it is pretty pink and very girly.

Cons:- This pressed powder comes in a single compartment but that's ok with me.

                       I rate this product 4.75 out of 5. Right now its a hit with me and I am loving it :D
