Finally!

So if any of you follow my YT channel you all know that I'm obsessed with applying Sunscreen. Lordy how I wish I had started sooner but no use in crying over split milk. I just thank gawd that I finally came to my senses. But I've always been really miffed about this whole re-application business. I mean most of us wear makeup and usually just have to apply it once. Well if even the highest SFP only gives you about 4-6 hrs of protection how the heck am I supposed to reapply it without my makeup looking like a hot mess! I mean do I really want to spread my contour, blush, highlighter all over my face just so I can have a little protection? The answer should be yes as all these things we use to beautify ourselves wouldn't really mean much when you have a face full of spots, cracks and crevices! Not to mention the dreaded C word. Well no need to fret any longer. Finally someone was using their noodle! The Peter Thomos Roth Instant Mineral SPF 45 is the perfect solution. It's in powder form so you can lightly dust it over your perfectly made face. I forgot to mention in my video that it's talc free and also contains wonderful yummy vitamins A C & E.  But of course living in Canada means that we actually live in Siberia so unfortunately this beauty of a product is not to be found here. But fear not, you can order online.



Now it does look like it has a tint but when applied it's translucent.


You just pull the bottom down to reattach the cap


Do not push the bottom all the way up as that releases the powder. I leave a little gap as shown so that it stays closed.

  3. SPF 45? That's great. I hope we can order this online here. I use Bare Escentuals but theirs only goes to SPF 15.

  4. @Ansa Yes I'm sure you can find it online. Just to clarify, it's not a mineral foundation, it's a powder sunscreen ;-D

  9. I love the fact that's a powdered sunscreen. I actually use B.M to set foundations. Kinda of redunent I know, but it works on summer time in keep foundation last longer.

  11. @ Poli....I just checked and I don't really like my makeup to have sunscreen because I like to apply it separately. The reason why I like this product is that it's a powder sunscreen and completely translucent. I'm super picky about foundations because I'm really really hard to match so I don't tend to want to buy a lot of it. I have a fantastic cream, an amazing mineral and a really good stick...and that's about all one person needs in my books, maybe a liquid too ;-D

  13. Yay! I was super thrilled to see that a local (Swedish) webshop has this product! I searched around after seeing your video, did NOT expect it to be available here!
    So YAY! Will buy! Thanks!

  17. @mrsjusttheretolearn Isn't it! Although I do know that Chantecaille also have a powdered sunscreen but not sure when they brought it out. Not to mention it is $65US so probably closer ot $80CAN.

  18. I am definitely buying this mineral powder, I wonder where in london they sell it :)

  19. @elle....yay! You won't regret it! I'm sure you'd be able to find it in London! ;-D

  20. I'm hesitant to get this product because the brush is attached therefore I won't be able to clean the brush.

  21. @eikciv......yes I hear what your saying. I'm totally anal about cleaning my brushes regularly....I will be cleaning this as well. Perhaps not with castile soap and running water but with brush cleaner or even just wipe it back and forth on an alcohol saturated cloth. I just think protecting your skin against the sun far out weighs any other possible downside. But of course that is just my opinion. If you can reapply sunscreen often using other methods then you probably don't need this particular
    product.;-DD

  22. koko, love your channel and blog.
    im using the Colorescience Sunforgettable Brush SPF 30 for almost 2 years now, love it. it's just like the Peter Thomos Roth one but with 6 different colors to choose from. but it has Mica if anyone is allergic to it, you may want to stay away from it:-)check it out.

    Once you see this, if you would like - I would love to recommend you a better sunscreen. It's well worth it and you can apply it with your makeup on. My mother watched this TV channel where this doctor was speaking about sunscreens being bad for you as well. So she wrote down the site for me to check out if the sunscreen I am currently using is bad (Neutrogena) and sure enough it was. But I have an alternative, which is amazing!

  25. i love the idea behind this sunscreen, and i use a similar kind from everyday minerals, but i was researching a few sunscreens and the peter thomas roth one was listed as one of the worst (not in it's protection, but because of it's powder form)!! i'm at a loss, because i love the idea of the powder, but it's what makes it so dangerous, according to this consumer watchdog group: http://www.ewg.org/2010sunscreen/buyer-beware

    anyway, i guess we can't always have it all. but thanks for the informative video & blog post!

  26. oh! i guess nhu has already commented about the article. but i completely agree with her - the site is pretty helpful in deciding what's a quality beauty product =)
