As a skin care junkie, my ultimate dream is to be able to go foundation-free.
That day has come and gone a few times during good skin weeks, but the majority of the time, I need some help evening out my skin tone, covering blemishes and hiding dark undereye circles.
MVO Everyday Coverage SPF 30 has been helping me out in all of those areas and has been providing SPF 30 for me — something we tend to let slide during cold-weather months (the sun still gets through those clouds and zaps your skin, y’all).
You can see my before (left) and after (right above). I took these pics two weeks ago and was in the middle of chin-breakout-recovery (it’s almost healed now).
MVO Everyday Coverage SPF 30 easily slid across my face and offered a light coverage and a supershot of moisture thanks to a concoction of oils high up on the ingredients list.
You can see the nice coverage it gave without “masking” my skin; it’s not a heavy-duty foundation, and it’s not supposed to be. My skin could breathe, yet looked even and healthy.
MVO Everyday Coverage SPF did, however, feel a bit too oily on my skin because of all these oils combined with my normal pre-makeup oil primer.
If you get MVO Everyday Coverage SPF 30 and have oily skin, you can easily skip your usual pre-makeup facial oil. This stuff has you covered. I would definitely recommend setting it with a loose powder / setting powder to help keep it from slipping around on your face.
Let’s look at the ingredients list:
Non-nano zinc oxide 20% Camellia sinensis (green& white tea), non-nano zinc oxide, simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil, prunus armeniaca (apricot kernel) oil, limnanthes alba (meadowfoam) seed oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil, emu oil, tocopherol (vitamin e), vegetable glycerin, elaesis guineensis (red palm) oil, rubus idaeus (red raspberry) seed oil, lecithin, potassium sorbate, allantoin, polyaminopropyl biguanide*, xanthan gum, mica, hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) oil, calodendrum capense (yangu) oil, rosemarinus officinalis (rosemary) oleoresin, pearl powder, daucus carota (carrot) seed essential oil, cistus incanus (cistus) essential oil, helichrysum italicum (helichrysum) essential oil, iron oxides
Final verdict on MVO Everyday Coverage SPF 30? I like it. This is an ultimate, all-in-one product: SPF, oil, color. Talk about a time-saver!
I think it’s one to reserve for those good-skin days, though — you don’t need much of it to even your skin, but if you’re looking to mask blemishes, it’s not going to do much there … it will just help them look a little less intense.
