[unpaid/purchase] I got 100% influenced into this purchase! I read about it in the Saturday Times and being a fan of L’Oreal bases, wanted it straight away. The idea of a ‘water’ cream is straight from Asian beauty brands who love the whole watery, dewy concept. It’s not that the formula is watery in texture, by the way, but it is a 70% water based mix with aloe, ginger and witch hazel.
I bought mine in my local Superdrug and have to admit that it was quite hard to determine which would be the right shade for me – they had five tones (there are actually 10 but my branch only had the five) and eventually I opted for Medium 01 which actually is fine for my tone as it is now (which is helped with warmth by Tan Luxe drops) but usually I think I would be Light 2. It’s SPF20 and as lightweight as they come. Picking your colour is made easier (and I’d have used it before I went shopping if I’d known) with the L’Oreal Paris Tap & Try facility HERE on their website – upload your picture and see how the shades look on your skin and then head to Superdrug HERE who have all the shades.
Skin Paradise is really perfect for now – that light coverage we’re all looking for that gives a hint of luminosity and skin perfecting that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It’s an every-age product – good, in fact, for older skin, especially if you don’t want heaviness but just feel better with a little ‘something’ that gives both SPF and moisture. On me, it doesn’t give a ‘glass skin’ sheen but does look towards dewy. You could up the ‘dew’ by using a glow primer underneath. Don’t expect a hydration drench – it’s not wet-feeling or exceptionally moisturising, but if your skin is ‘normal’ as opposed to oily or very dry, I can’t fault it for summer day cover. Better yet, it’s £10.99.
