If you use a chemical sunscreen or if you have prolonged exposure to the sun, it is important to reapply the sunscreen regularly through the day. This reapplication often gets overlooked as it is not exactly convenient to reapply sunscreen especially over foundation or your make-up.
That is where the Sandiva SPF Top-Up Loose Powder comes in.
It is a high protection, easy to use loose powder that is meant to be dusted over your face just like a compact or any finishing powder. The sandalwood dust lends its antibacterial properties to give your skin round the clock protection from harmful germs. It also absorbs the excess oil produced by your skin through the day, making sunscreen reapplication an easy, breezy and non-greasy process.Sandiva's In Vitro Test Results
Dust over your moisturised skin for sun protection.
Can also be used as a natural alternative to cosmetic loose powder over foundation.
Apply liberally with the sponge applicator or a powder brush.
Top up whenever needed - the ingredients are great for your skin!
Best used frequently through the day as dusting powder to keep your face fresh and protected.
The ingredients are carefully chosen as they play a very important role in protecting and caring for your precious skin:
Sandalwood dust - Anti-bacterial, gentle on skin, protects skin from environmental & sun damage, soothes skin inflammation
Zinc Oxide - Acts as a physical shield, blocks both UVA and UVB rays from penetrating your skin. As it doesn’t absorb deeply, 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 - shade + enhanced protection against blue light such as screens & indoor lights
Mica - Soft focus filler - smooths out fine lines
Sandalwood, Zinc Oxide (and) Triethoxycaprylysilane, Mica (and) Silica, Dimethicone / Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer (and) Silica, CI 77492, CI 77491
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Is it Non Comedogenic?
Yes. This product does not cause pores to get clogged.
Is it water/ sweat resistant?
Yes, it is both water and sweat resistant.
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.
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.
