This is why this Laneige Brightening Sun Powder is essentially a life saver for me. On the Laneige website, it said that you can reapply as frequently as you want, and the sunscreen will only give you a brightening effect, with no color added. As with most Laneige products, this sun powder did exactly what it promised, nothing more, nothing less. I can cake on a thick layer, and the layer would disappear within 30 seconds, only leaving a healthy glow behind! I believe it also acts as a setting powder since as long as I applied this, there is no oiliness on my skin. To me, this is pretty amazing!
As you can see, it comes in a pretty golden compact that is kind of iridescent. My SO's aunt said it looked really princessy and I quite agree! :) Inside, there's some kind of yellowish powder in the middle with pink powder surrounding it. At first, I thought this was really weird, and was afraid that the combination might make me look really weird. However, it really gives no color at all. I asked the SA at the Laneige counter in my horrible Korean, and she told me that the yellow powder at the center is actually Vitamin C, and the powder on the outside is the actual sunscreen, so why applying, you have to really swirl your brush in the compact.
I lent this to my SO's aunt, and it also gave a lovely glow to her skin even though her skintone is so much darker than mine. However, one thing she found very annoying is that no matter how much she slather on, it offers zero coverage.
In summary: This is a very good sunscreen powder that I like to apply after sunblock, and use for reapplication. It kind of acts as a blotting powder, and leaves after only a glow. There is no cakiness no matter how much you apply, but there is also zero coverage. In addition, this contains Vitamin C, which according to a peer reviewed scientific study released in February, will offer better sunscreen protection and boosts the benefits of Vitamin C.
