Skin79 Diamond Collection Sun Protection Balm Moist Review

I guess we established the Muse is very much obsessed with sun protection. SPF 500? Sign me up on that dotted line.

I'm the type of person that's slathering SPF on my face when there's six feet of snow on the ground and heaps more falling from the sky. The moral of this story is the sun is evil and if you aren't protecting your skin you're insane. Get to a store right now and get some SPF, I demand it. You don't want to be using your skin as a leather handbag in 10 years people.

I'm always looking for a good way to get my SPF on. Something easy, something not greasy or oily, etc....Anything really that will help my skin to stay as young looking and healthy as possible. Sun? Very nice to hang out in. Skin and Sun? Not good together.




Jump ahead for the latest way I'm protecting my skin!

Loving Skin79 Diamond Collection Sun Protection Balm Moist at the moment. This is the funniest and really quite an easy way to protect yourself from the sun with an SPF 50.




Basic application is an absolute snap as this is a balm which allows you to spread the SPF onto face after your moisturizing, primer, and foundation but before your makeup. It comes in a pink jar with sponge application. Simply swipe the balm onto the sponge and pat gently onto skin and blend. It has a fresh scent as well which is quite pretty if you don't mind scented skin care. The product does every so slightly leave a white cast to skin but blended out with makeup in place (blush, etc...) that will quickly clear up. The formula is very light, very sheer, non greasy or oily. After it's in place it doesn't really feel like you have anything on at all.












Overall, I absolutely adore the application of this and just the idea. It's a rather unique way to get good strong sun protection. If you're as obsessed as I am with SPF this could be worthy of a pick up. It is a Korean product and not available within the US but a quick trip to evil-bay should yield results.
