Product Review; "Neova DNA Damage Control Silc Sheer SPF 45"
Tinted moisturizer is the kind of product you reach for when you want sheer coverage. Meaning, reducing flaws ever so slightly. But, protection is how you keep those flaws from appearing in the first place.
Neova's main goal seems to be caring for skin's issues, and in some cases reversing existing damage. By protecting top layers with a mind-blowing SPF 45, DNA Damage Control Silc Sheer at first seems like it will be thick and blazingly white, but boasting antioxidant ingredients Green Tea, Rosemary Extract and Lutein you get a moist blend that glides onto skin and absorbs after moments. With a helping of Aloe Vera Extract to retain that moisture, the formula still utilizes a heavy dose of Titanium Dioxide and Octinoxate to block both UVA and UVB rays while a sheer wash of color minimizes any expected whitish overcast that you would usually get from a sunscreen.
Though not entirely devoid of color, I do find that there is a bit of hue that stays over complexion that can be either complimentary or hindering. It has a peach-like quality that is incredibly sheer but after a minute or two, dissolves into skin tones from fair to medium without any residual color aside from muting redness and evening slight discoloration. If applied with hands, be sure to go over ears and top of decollatege' if exposed.
Even if the color isn't quite right, what stands out most is the Photolysomes and Endosomes delivery systems that permeate deep into the skin's surface to undo cellular damage and prevent early cell death caused from UV exposure. Why cover flaws when you can irradicate them entirely?
