Excuse me for capturing the evil red carbonated syrup next to the Uvidea XL Tinted Cream by La Roche Posay. It is simply because, I can't live without either of these in the current heat and Sun. Uvidea XL offers SPF50 and PA+++, while the coke offers a few hundred kCal while it quench my thirst and cool me down.
The cream itself is in a slight peachy skin colour. As pictured above, it is a lotion, or thin cream consistency. It is designed for and tested on Asian sensitive skin. Formula is Fragrance-free, Paraben-free. Has a faint scent of clinical smell (not prominent nor offensive).
The description says to apply it as the last step of morning skin care regime, every morning, as a make-up base. It does correct the skin tone a little, and brighten up any dullness especially with the lack of sleep.
Once blended, it has a slight sheen, and reflects light. Probably not the best thing you would wear for flash photography. It wears very comfortably, and moisturise my combo/dry skin in the warm weather very well. I didn't get new sunspot/freckles with this due to the PA+++. PA+++ is the highest UVA protection index, (which is not a universal adopted index). For your information, SPF is related to UVB which goes less deep into your skin.

I really like how this UVIDEA XL wears on my skin, and I'm near the end of it. Thanks for protecting my skin from the harmful rays in Hong Kong, Tokyo/Japan, and Kenting/Taiwan! :D
A "Hurray" product.
I love it and perhaps I will get a full size of this, when I down-size my moisturiser/sunscreen stash a little bit. Are there any good sunscreen or make up base that you recommend me to try? I always love to read about and try new skin care!
Blogging non-stop in 1 month seems harder than I thought, but I'm thinking of challenging myself in the coming month or so. What's your thought? Also, please go enter my Blogust Giveaway, because it is still a few entries short than 20, and when it reached 20 I will pick 2 winners instead of 1!
