Review Époux Everyday Perfect Sun Cream SPF 50 PA++

Este produto foi comprado com o meu dinheiro e não recebo nada em troca por fazer esta review!
I bought this product with my own money and I receive nothing in return for making this review!

Hora da review e vou tentar ser o mais sucinta possível. Agora que chegou oficialmente ao fim, é a altura perfeita para poder falar sobre o protetor solar que tenho usado, comprado na loja online Korean Queens: o Époux Everyday PerfectSun Cream com SPF50PA++. Este é o produto que mais se assemelha a um simples protetor solar de SPF elevado. Todos os outros são bb ou cc cremes com proteção solar e eu queria uma coisa mais simples.
Posso dizer que não me arrependo em nada de o ter comprado, confesso que ao princípio assustei-me porque pensei que só me iria durar um mês, dado que são apenas 30ml e parecia estar a desaparecer a grande velocidade.
 Review time and I will try and be straight to the point. Now that’s officially over, it’s the perfect time to tell you about the latest sunscreen I’ve been using, bought from the online store Korean Queens: the Époux Everyday Perfect Sun Cream withSPF 50 PA++. This was the closest I could find to a regular sunscreen with high SPF. All the other products are bb or cc creams with sun protection and I wanted something simpler.
I don’t regret having bought this product, at all. Though I must confess that at first the 30ml tube seemed small and was disappearing fast, I didn’t think it would last more than a month. 

Embalagem: simples mas engraçada. Tons de laranja e roxo, muito na temática do verão. É um tubo normal que contem 30 ml. Eu prefiro estes tubos porque se consegue aproveitar o produto todo (é só desenroscar a tampa roxa e é mais fácil). Dá para andar na mala e veio selado. As instruções estão em Coreano, mas a loja espanhola põe um autocolante com as instruções em espanhol. Bom
Packaging: pretty simple but cute. Orange tones and purple just scream summer. It’s a regular squeeze tube containing 30 ml of product. I do prefer the squeeze tubes because you can get all the product out (unscrew the purple lid and it makes it easier). Travel friendly and sealed. Instructions in Korean only, but the Spanish store provides a sticker with instructions in Spanish.  Good

Cheirinho: é um problema para a maioria das pessoas, dado que para além de ser forte é muito estranho! Cheira um bocado a remédio, no entanto, desaparece ao fim de uns poucos minutos. Mas admito que havia dias que me custava a suportar enquanto o aplicava na cara e pescoço. Mau
Fragrance: this will be a problem for most because it’s strong and very, very weird! A bit on the medicine side, I could say. It doesn’t linger and after a couple of minutes it’s gone. But there were days that it almost felt unbearable, while spreading it on my face and neck. Bad

Textura e cor: é um bocado espesso, mas não é difícil de se aplicar e espalhar. É quase como se fosse um bb creme dos mais ligeiros. Não se consegue perceber na foto, mas tem um tom bege, não é branco porque dizem que tem uma função de primário de maquilhagem. Não se fica a parecer um fantasma! Para mim, Bom

Texture and colour: a bit on the thicker side but not that hard to blend. It’s almost like a lighter bb cream. You can’t really tell on the picture but it’s bit on the beige side, it’s not white because they say it has a “primer-like” function. No white cast!!!! For me, Good

Cobertura: nenhuma! É possível que consiga reduzir um bocadinho as áreas mais vermelhas, mas nem chega a uniformizar bem o tom de pele. Mau, para quem o comprar com este propósito também, mas para mim, não me fez diferença.
Antes, só com o hidratante da Secret Key.
Before, with just the Secret Key moisturizer applied.

Coverage: none! It may reduce a tiny bit of the red areas, but it doesn’t even out the skin tone. Bad, if you buy it with this purpose as well, but for me it didn’t matter.

Depois de aplicar o protetor solar. Um bocadinho menos vermelha, talvez. É realmente pena não se conseguir ver o brilho com que se fica
After applying the sunscreen. Does seem a bit less red. Pity you can’t see the shine on the photos.

Controlo da oleosidade: quase nenhum. Depois de aplicar a pele fica extremamente brilhante, o que para mim significa que não posso usar sem aplicar um pó por cima. Para peles oleosas, não é do melhor e é mesmo necessário a utilização de um pó, ou de um hidratante próprio que controle também o óleo, a usar antes. Eu já referi que usando o Secret Key snail recovery cream controlava-me mais a oleosidade. Por isso, Mau
Oil-Control: very poor or almost none. After applying it, you get a very glowy finish, which for me meant that I could not use this without a powder on top. For oily skin, you really need a powder and an appropriate moisturizer to use before, that also controls oil. I said before that using the Secret Key recovery snail cream did help control the oil better. So this gets Bad

Já com o pó compacto da Essence por cima.
With Essence compact powder on top.

Longevidade: durou-me durante o dia todo, mas é certo que não tive oportunidade de testar naqueles dias em que uma pessoa quase derrete, porque ainda não tivemos muitos desses seguidos. Bom
Longevidade: os 30ml a €8 duraram-me precisamente dois meses e mais duas semaninhas inteiras. Fiquei impressionada. Por isso, Bom

Longevity: lasts throughout the day, but I haven’t tested on those really hot summer days, since we haven’t had those days for long. Good
Longevity: the 30ml (it cost €8) lasted me two whole months plus two entire weeks! I was impressed. So this point gets Good


Compraria de novo? existem tantas outras opções, mas se a loja espanhola fosse a minha única saída, compraria de novo sim senhora! Tendo em consideração o preço e o facto de que com um pó e um hidratante próprio, a minha cara não ficou oleosa tão depressa, como com muito outros produtos que experimentei, é um bom protetor solar, mas só para a única função de proteger do sol.Não me causou quaisquer borbulhas, nem reação alérgica!

Would I buy this again? there are so many other options out there, but if the Spanish store was my only source, I would buy it again, considering the price and the fact that with a powder and the proper moisturizer it holds the oil better than many things I have tried. Overall it’s a very good sunscreen, but only sunscreen material. Didn’t cause me any breakouts nor any allergic reaction!


Espero que tenham gostado e recomendo este produto para pessoas que não sejam muito sensíveis às fragâncias. E peço desculpa pelas fotos…
I hope you liked this review and I’m sorry I couldn’t post this before. I do recommend people to try it, if you are not that sensitive to fragrances. And I do apologize for my selfies…

Uma pequena, mas IMPORTANTE notinha: o Blogger não está a cooperar, por isso peço para terem paciência. Obrigada e beijinhos.
A little but IMPORTANT side note: Blogger isn’t cooperating, so I ask you to bear with me. Thank you and kisses.



Fiquem bem! Até ao meu próximo post!
Xana

Take care! See you on my next post!

  3. I think that it has to be great product, I like that it has high SPF (which is important thing in the summer) and it has good longevity, but it's not good that it has non oil-control. Have a great evening, dear :)

  7. This sounds like a nice product - I don't mind too much about the smell if it goes away after a while!
    I haven't heard about the brand but it's always nice to see new/different brands/products which I wouldn't normally find out about :)

  13. Hi Alex!!! OMG sunscreen is super important especially in the summer! I love how this has NO WHITE CAST and it doesn't break you out... I find most sunscreens I use have titanium oxide which tends to make my face look like a GHOST and clog my pores! (boohooohoo) but this is such an honest and great review! Keep it up girl!

  15. Hey Alexandra. Actually do you prefer people to call you Alexandra, Alex or Xana? I would love to call by the name you're most in tune with.

    Thanx for this review. For me, a sunscreen is oily is no-no for me. However when you showed the pictures of it on your skin, it sure doesn't look oily at all.

    RYC1:
    Well hello, fellow Gemini! There was a mixture of butterflies and moths in that enclosure and I realized the one I took photo of was actually a moth (according to its wings at resting position and its feelers)! Never knew moths could be so colourful too. Recently during the warmer period, my country has been plagued with large, dark-coloured moths with dramatic wings known as Lyssa zampa. I wonder if you would love to meet those. Hehe... You could google to see how it looks like. ;)

    RYC2:
    Friends are the best things that one could have, Alexandra. Of course, it is always a blessing to have the right kinda of friends too and I’m always thankful for this. Indeed Audrey is a sweet little baby doll. You never fail to have such lovely comments that I look forward to seeing you here always. xoxo

  16. hi xana! :) packaging of this product as so cute like your usual korean products haul. i would skip this thought bec of its medicinal scent. my nose is very sensitive and that could give me a headache but im glad you like the product :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. The packaging sure is cute, it still looks like sunscreen XD At least it works better than others you've tried before. Sunscreen is very important after all, even though others may usually skip applying it before going out.
