Last May, Luna (@sparklesandnargles) invited me to join her in a product launch from Mesoestetic. Since the brand is very familiar to me because I use their chemical peels in my practice, I was eager to attend it. On my first week of use, I developed several bumps on my chin. I didn’t want to put the blame on the sunblock so I waited until those resolved before I went back to using it. Now I’m ready to share my full experience with the products given by the brand.
SUN PROTECH-TION FROM MESOESTETIC
Mesoprotech is an innovative range of products offering the most advanced and complete sunscreen technology, providing protection against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB radiation, infrared radiation (IR) and visible light (HEV). Their formulas combine safety with effective antioxidant and antiaging action, favouring the production of collagen and avoiding skin photoaging. Dermatologically tested formulas. Water resistant.
The Mesoprotech line consists of the following 6 products: Mineral Matt Antiaging Fluid, Light Water Antiaging Veil, Nourishing Antiaging oil, Sun Protective Body Lotion, Melan 130+ Pigment Control and the Sun Protective Repairing Stick. We received three items from the range and that’s what I’m going to talk about in today’s post. They all contain fragrances to them but not the typical sunblock scent. Instead, they all carry a subtle smell of perfume.
I’ll start first with the Light Water Antiaging Veil. This comes in a squeeze bottle with 50 ml of product. It has a white creamy consistency. It doesn’t feel sticky on application but it does leave a slightly greasy feeling even after it has been fully absorbed. It also leaves some white cast and as you can see from the photo below, my skin looks more toned-up after I’ve applied it. Despite the minimal white cast, I really think my skin looks better with it. What do you think?
Next is the Sun Protective Body Lotion which comes in a pump bottle with 200 ml of product. It’s not as greasy as the previous one but still has a bit of it. I don’t see any white cast with this on the skin but then again, I don’t pay much attention to where I’ve applied this after massaging it on the skin. It’s not sticky either and spreads easily.
Lastly, the Sun Protective Repairing Stick which boasts an SPF of 100+. This is meant for the sensitive areas of the face like the lips and eyes. It can also be applied over makeup during reapplication. It doesn’t have any white cast but it does feel a little bit greasy. I was excited for this product the most but this stick somewhat causes a stinging sensation on my lips. I haven’t tried to apply it again there but I do use this on my undereye areas frequently.
Looking at the rest of the Mesoprotech range, I am also interested in getting the Nourishing Antiaging Oil. From what I can remember from the launch, I find its texture and consistency better for the body in comparison to the Sun Protective Body Lotion.
