TOTAL EYE 3-In-1 Renewal Therapy SPF 35

I love this thing. It brightens, corrects and offers SPF protection all while looking very natural. This is a peach tinted sunscreen meant for the under eyes. My dark circles aren't severe but I definitely get a shadow under my eyes. This brightens up the area and the peach color helps conceal any blue/purple tones I might be having. It looks very natural. The finish is dewy but it has lasting power if set with powder. I love the SPF in this. It has never irritated my eyes or dried out my skin. The packaging is great. The cool tip applicator feels amazing in the mornings. The cap on my container unfortunately broke after falling off my counter but other than that the packaging has been sturdy. I've had mine for about 9 months and I still have product left. I don't use a lot, probably not enough to get the complete benefits of the SPF, but I do use it every day. The major downside of this product is the price. $69 is absolutely ridiculous. I purchased mine during a 25% sale on Dermstore and that helped some but it's still an incredibly expensive product. That being said, I love using it and it has lasted me a long time. I will probably repurchase but I will keep my eye out for sales. P.S. I wear NC13 in MAC's Studio Fix Powder. The shade of this corrector works for me but it would be too light for medium or dark skintones. I hope Colorescience expands the shade range.

Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50

I got a sample of this mineral sunscreen (which lasted about 3 applications) and was impressed enough to shell out for the full size. I wear this alone on my no-makeup days. The formula is a silky, thin liquid that spreads easily. The tint is on the pale side with a pink base - I'd guess it's about an NC20 - with a slight bit of a pearl finish (if the Elta MD tinted sunscreens are too dark/too warm for you this would be a good alternative). The color is actually too light for me but I noticed that once it absorbs it doesn't look so pale and it does give the skin a nice glow. There is very slight smell when first applied but this quickly dissipates. The formula says that it also blocks blue light, infrared light, and acts as a pollution shield, but it's hard to tell if those things are actually happening. But it is moisturizing and comforting on dry skin (I think it might be a bit heavy for oilier skin). I haven't experienced any breakouts or clogged pores. My only complaint about this product is the shiny finish. I have to apply MAC oil blotting powder on top to cut the shine, but it does last all day. Also you will need a cleansing oil to remove this product. Active Ingredients: Zinc Oxide 12% UVA protection rating: PA+++ UVB protection rating: SPF 50 Water resistant (40 minutes) Inactive Ingredients: Water, Butyloctyl Salicylate, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Isododecane, Lauryl PEG-8 Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Propanediol, Dimethicone, Niacinamide, Caprylyl Methicone, Dimethiconol/Propylsilsesquioxane/Silicate Crosspolymer, Trilaureth-4 Phosphate, Allantoin, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract, Bisabolol, Disodium Lauriminodipropionate Tocopheryl Phosphates, Caesalpinia Spinosa Fruit Pod Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Sprout Extract, Glycerin, Tocopherol, Lauryl PEG-10 Tris(trimethylsiloxy)silylethyl Dimethicone, Maltodextrin, Sodium Chloride, Ethylhexylglycerin, Isoceteth-10, Silica, Betaine, Capryl Glycol, Dimethylmethoxy Chromanol, Hexylene Glycol, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate, PEG-10, Dehydroacetic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Benzoic Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499).

I FINALLY FOUND IT. I have been searching for an under eye concealer that won't crease or draw attention to my imperfections for YEARS. Not only did I find one, it also has SUNSCREEN IN IT! This product is like magic; it is that good. I put a bit on my finger to apply and then use my IT airbrush 103 to blend. It makes my skin look better, yet looks like I am not wearing concealer, which is what I always wanted! Obviously, it adds color and evens out my skin tone, but it does not highlight crepey-ness/wrinkles or make my skin too dry. It adds moisture but not so much that I need powder, which I hate. In short, it is the PERFECT under eye concealer! And I have tried all the most expensive brands!
