This winter has been really hard on my skin. I am so dry that my skin just hurts much of the time. I’ve been relying on oils to keep my skin soft and supple. On a lot of days, I have been wearing BB cream or CC cream for extra moisture, so I decided to give this Trish McEvoy sample a whirl!
Trish’s Instant Solutions® SPF 35 is an all-in-one skin perfecter that instantly primes, brightens, evens, hydrates and controls oil. Rejuvenating peptides improve skin’s texture quality over time while SPF helps prevent sun damage. Worn under foundation or alone, it minimizes shine and delivers a look of healthy, natural coverage.
This product has a lot of claims, but not ones that are super outrageous by any means. I can’t vouch for the oil control, but I think the rest of the claims are true, particularly the hydration factor. This is so hydrating! My skin felt amazing while wearing it. The BB cream packet had enough for a few uses, so I was able to give it a pretty good test run. My first impression was that it felt soft to the touch, and that it was easy to blend.
Although it doesn’t have a bunch of coverage (as BB creams usually don’t), it smoothed out my skin and provided moisture all day long. I did end up setting it with a powder very lightly, and my face was good to go. You can wear it under foundation to use as a primer. I found that it stayed all day on its own with just the powder on top, but if you want extra coverage, you can of course layer it with your foundation of choice. I also tried it with a powder foundation, which was nice.
This product comes in two shades: 1 and 2. I think my shade must have been 1, but I didn’t see it anywhere on the sample.
Unfortunately, this product is quite expensive- $85 for 1.8 ounces. I can’t say that I would rule out purchasing it though; it is that good! It certainly made my desert dry winter skin feel hydrated and fresh. I am a fan!
