Gabriel Natural Dual Powder and Foundation with SPF!!!!

My skin is becoming an increasing concern of mine as I inch my way up the 30’s ladder. Thanks to many of the products I’ve discovered, I rarely have breakouts like I used to. And when I do, they are gone in a matter of days and not weeks like they used to be. However, one thing I’m finding is inescapable. No matter how many “whitening” or “brightening” products I try, I am forever left looking flushed or blushing.
So what to do? Sad as it may be, my only choice left is simply to cover it up. I have never been a fan of foundations and concealers, and have always preferred pressed powders. So far, all of the more natural or organic brands have pretty much been a disappointment. Most of the natural mineral products have left me looking shiny and didn’t last. That lovely mineral “glow” is great on young ladies with peaches and cream skin, but on me it just adds shine to the red–making me look more like a red delicious apple.
Gabriel Cosmetics Dual Powder Foundation has been a welcome and happy find to reduce my redness and give me the matte complexion I crave. It’s packaged in a sleek and sophisticated black and gold case, suitable for application anywhere, and thankfully puts the mirror in the TOP of the compact where it belongs! Right away, I noticed that the powder/foundation blend went easily onto my skin and gave excellent coverage. Some powders sit ON TOP of your skin–making you look like someone just dusted your face with one of those giant powder puffs. This visit our site blended with coverage that was just right, and left me matte and fresh looking without the thickness of wearing liquid foundation or the shine of minerals. Loved it.
Here’s what the Gabriel’s Cosmetics website has to say…This velvety plant-based formula performs both as a foundation and powder for a smooth matte finish. When applied with a dry sponge, it creates an ultra matte finish or use a moist sponge for a sheer, fresh appearance. Formulated to help minimize shine and absorb excess oil without clogging pores or drying skin. Enhanced with vegetable derived Squalane for luxurious texture and ease of application. Contains proven antioxidants for superior protection against environmental damage. A non-chemical PABA-free sunscreen has been added to shield skin from harmful sun exposure.
My first morning application lasts easily through until lunchtime, and requires just a minimal touch up to my nose (my most oily feature) and never feels cakey or heavy upon reapplication. Though there are click it now plenty of great powders out there that perform equally as well, I think I’ll stick to this one for a while for its natural properties and built in SPF (YES!…ALL products used on the skin should require it!). You can go onto the Gabriel’s website under store locator, and find a health food store near you that carries this great line! Enjoy!
