SPF Top-Up Loose Powder
The Importance of Top-Up

During the day, your sunblock loses its potency because of ingredients wearing down, sweat, touching or wiping your face, when you wear masks and plenty of other daily activities.

In order to prevent your skin from tanning, you need to top-up your sun protection by reapplying sunscreen on exposed areas. But this reapplication gets overlooked as it is not exactly convenient to reapply sunscreen especially over foundation or your make-up.

Enter SPF Top-Up Loose Powder- Sandiva’s unique solution to this everyday problem- just dab on like a compact or any finishing powder for lightweight coverage but heavy duty sun-protection.

The Science of Skin

Sandalwood

100% Pure, Unadulterated Sandalwood, Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, perfect for protecting skin from sun damage, soothes skin inflammation.

24% Zinc Oxide

Acts as a physical shield, blocks both UVA and UVB rays from penetrating your skin. It is suitable for sensitive skin as it’s less likely to cause irritation like other chemical filters. It is completely photostable and resistant to water - so it won’t break down when exposed to the sun and will hold up through sweat and activities such as swimming for much longer.

Iron Oxides

Provides a beautiful natural tint and enhanced protection against blue light such as screens & indoor lights

Mica

Soft focus filler that smooths out fine lines for that airbrushed look.

Dust over your moisturised skin using the sponge applicator or a powder brush.Can also be used as a natural alternative to cosmetic loose powder over foundation.

Top-up once in every two hours or as needed during the day. Best used frequently through the day as dusting powder, to keep your face fresh and protected.

Sandalwood, Zinc Oxide (and) Triethoxycaprylysilane, Mica (and) Silica, Dimethicone / Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer (and) Silica, CI 77492, CI 77491

  1. What’s different about the Sandiva SPF Top-up Loose Powder?

    While loose powder is often used as just a setting powder that holds makeup in place, the Sandiva SPF Top-up Loose Powder goes far beyond that. It protects your skin from bacteria and UV rays, and even against harmful blue light that is emitted by your laptop screen! This loose powder blends into your skin tone and gives you a flawless soft-focus effect that lasts all day.

  2. When should one use the SPF Top-up Loose Powder vs the One-and-Done Tinted Sunblock?

    You can use the One and Done Tinted Sunblock as the main shield against the sun, and supplement it with the SPF Top up Loose Powder on those days when you’re going to be outdoors, want an extra finished look or need to keep touching up your face. The powder box conveniently fits into your bag so you can use it for any touch-ups throughout the day to refresh your skin and to stay protected from harmful UV rays.

  3. Why is re-application important?

    Your pores pump out oil that causes the sunscreen to smudge, leaving some areas more exposed than others. Additionally, rubbing, sweating or activities such as swimming could cause the sunblock to wear off from your skin. Hence, re-application is essential based on your lifestyle.

  4. Does it blend with my skintone or will it leave a whitish residue?

    The SPF Top-up Loose Powder comes in 3 shades to match your skintone. The Sandalwood in this product helps it blend right into your skin, making it bright and radiant, with sheer coverage and no whitish residue.

  5. How much coverage does it provide?

    The SPF Top-up Powder is formulated to work like a sheer veil that isn't heavy or cakey. It can act as the finishing touch of your daily makeup routine.

  6. How does it work for dry vs oily skin?

    Excess sebum is often the cause of acne. This SPF Top Up Powder absorbs the excess sebum without drying out the skin, making it a great option for oily skin.
    If you have normal skin, this product helps you eliminate that midday sheen and brightens your face, giving you a fresh, matte effect with an SPF boost. On dry skin, we suggest using it over your daily moisturizer.

  7. Is it long lasting? How often does it need to be topped up?

    This loose powder has been formulated to be long lasting, but this is also dependent on factors such as activity levels, weather and skin type. Since it is lightweight, you can top it up as needed, at any time of the day without worrying about your skin looking whitish or cakey.

  8. Will this product prevent my concealer from creasing?

    This product is lightweight and is formulated to have light reflecting, soft-focus properties. So it will do a great job preventing your makeup from creasing.

  9. Is it Non Comedogenic?

    Yes. This product does not cause pores to get clogged.

  10. Is it water/ sweat resistant?

    Yes, it is both water and sweat resistant.

  11. Is it safe to use under the eyes?

    Yes, it is safe to use in the under-eye area. In fact, none of our products are water-based, which means, in addition to not smudging easily from your skin, they don’t encourage bacterial growth that would warrant the use of extra preservatives.

  12. Is this product safe for lactating mothers?

    All of our ingredients are safe for lactating mothers. However, we would encourage you to check with your doctor before using our products.

GREAT!

Perfect for touch up and setting. The powder is so fine and settles so nicely on the skin. The product is great! The only improvement that could be done is packaging. While it's perfect to use at home, carrying it around in my nice handbag is a pass.

COLOUR

I really like this except for the dark colour. It’s the lightest colour but still too dark for me making my face look grey dark. So I am using it only for my chin to give contours. Hope you will make a lighter tone too soon like one of those banana powder or translucent powder.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

Absolutely love this. I have purchased shade 44 which perfectly suits my complexion. I use it as a compact and it absorbs all the greasiness leaving a matte finish. This stays intact for some hours resisting minor sweating. I love the powdery finish which is transfer proof and subtle smell of sandalwood. I wish the packaging could improve as I find it hard to shake upon and wish it could be swiped.
