REVIEW: Enavose's Swiss Glacial Loose Powder SPF 15

Enavose is becoming quite a favourite of mine with its 'no parabens, no SLES (Sodium lauryl ether sulfate.), no mineral oils and no allergenic fragrances' policy. The skincare products that I have used so far have worked really well for me (Click here to read!), so you can imagine how very pleased I was (And surprised!) to find out that the brand was adding a range of makeup to the family!

Enavose's Swiss Glacial Loose Powder SPF 15 comes in just one shade, 01 Nude Glow, and is one of the star products of the makeup range. Consisting of 50% water, it is a skin-loving hydra powder that provides a cool, dewy finish. The finely-milled powder contains millions of Hydra-Spheres-Release. Upon application, these water-filled spheres gradually release pure Swiss Glacial Water into our skin throughout the day.

The powder also acts as a mattifying powder. It absorbs excess oil, while providing a light, sheer coverage to enhance our complexion. Reflective mineral pigments are also added. They diffuse light, masking pores and balancing irregular skin surface in the process. All these add up to a complexion that is radiant and luminescent!

24 Hours Hydra-Release: The encapsulated beads of Swiss Glacial Water, Hydra-Spheres-Release, gradually pop to maintain deep hydration levels from within. Skin's moisture barrier remains boosted for 24 hours.

Ultra Cooling Sensation: Provides a crisp, cooling sensation to keep skin feeling fresh and comfortable. Perfect for days when heat fatigue strikes.

Reflective Effect: Reflective mineral pigments diffuse light to balance out irregular surfaces and cover pores. Attain a look of elusive dewiness that glows with luminosity.

Natural Lightweight Coverage: Completely free of oil, this lightweight powder provides sheer, translucent coverage for a natural finish. Perfect for days when you want to be a barefaced beauty, or for use as a finishing powder. No fuss, no hassle. The universal shade, Nude Glow, flatters and suits every skin tone.

The loose powder comes equipped with a white puff. It feels very soft on the skin and doesn't cause any abrasions. Sitting on top of the powder is a white plastic net and a (styrofoam?) protective cover. The latter prevents the powder from getting onto the puff but I find it a tad troublesome. Careless me dropped it onto the floor pretty quickly so I just chucked it away. It would be better for the little jar to come attached with a flip cover instead... For the butter fingers anyway. Heh.

Here's the white plastic net. To get the powder onto the puff, all you need to do it to remove the protective cover, put the puff in, cap the jar and flip it down and up. Just the right amount of powder will collect onto the puff!

As you dust the powder onto your face, you can actually feel the encapsulated beads releasing their Swiss Glacial Water content; there is a very cooling and refreshing feeling. It's supposed to give a dewy finish but perhaps it was because I was using powder on powder, the finish that I got was rather matte. Hence, it wasn't exactly hydrating for my parched cheeks. I do, however, love this very much on my T-zone and forehead because it keeps these areas matte for a good 6 hours.

Coverage is sheer, as described, and a subtle luminescence was added to my complexion. I have been using this for the past 3 weeks or so and have encountered no irritations on my sensitive skin. (:
