Product Review; "Jouer Replenish and Protect Hydrating Bronzer SPF 39"
One of the more uniquely packaged and marketed brands, Jouer Cosmetics has also been one of the more well performing brands in my kit. Products like it's Replenish and Protect Hydrating Bronzer SPF 39 to reach for in, the now, scorching New York heat and humidity, prove more than just innovative packaging.
Made with mineral elements that compose a powerful Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 39, this lightweight powder dusts over cheeks and high points of the face without changing tone or leaving splotchy, orange-like streaks. With a fluffy powder brush you'll find this silky powder leaves skin feeling smooth whether in conjunction with foundations in cream or powder formula, or just bare skin. Not to mention it's milled to super-fine texture that refuses to build up when the next heat-wave strikes.
If there was one thing I had to say that wasn't so complimentary, it would be the lack of choice in colors. As in, there aren't any. Currently only available in one shade "Perfect Tan", this "matte golden honey" tone is incredibly complimentary to skin shades from medium-fair to medium-dark. On darker skin tones, it does look pretty nice as a setting powder or highlighter. Very fair tones will find it a bit too red, but if paired with a translucent powder, you get a nice warm flush.
Though I will continue to carry deeper tones from other companies, I hope Jouer does release more tones soon. I much prefer their packaging.
