Beauty Beat: The Per-fekt Lightweight Gel Even Foundation-Phobes Will Love
It’s impossible to test and review every single beauty product on the market, so that’s why we’re just highlighting the good stuff. You know, those lotions and potions with which we’re currently obsessed, and the beauty counter buys we believe everyone should know about. Today, we’re filling you in on an all-in-one skin gel that will get you through the summer months.
Heavy, gloopy makeup is never my jam, and least of all when the weather starts warming up. I usually stick to concealer and a dusting of translucent powder, but last week I had a wedding to go to, and a day full of photographs meant I was enticed to try out something a little bit more “done” than usual.
Luckily, a sample of per-fékt Beauty Skin Perfection Gel had been languishing on my counter since I snagged it through Birchbox a few weeks back. And while I wasn’t initially sure what it did when I first tried it, I’m sure glad I did, since now I’m pretty much hooked.
The texture is almost spongey — I guess mousse-like would be the appropriate term — when it comes out of the tube, and it blends in easily and absorbs in seconds, evening out pores and skin tone while leaving the skin silky smooth. Plus, it has vitamins A and E and is totally free of all those icky additives like oils, fragrances, or parabens, which is always a good thing.
Right now I have it in “Luminous”, and I can vouch for the fact that the shade works on even very fair skin, but with a little luck (and a little more tanning lotion) I’ll be making the jump up to “Radiant” by the time mid-summer rolls around.
