Description

The Immortelle Brightening Shield SPF40 offers triple action benefits to correct wrinkles, unify the complexion and protect skin against the sun’s harmful ultra violet rays. A key product within the Immortelle Brightening collection, the Brightening Shield includes both Immortelle essential oil and Bellis Perennis (Daisy) extract. These Mediterranean “flowers of light” have complementary effects:


•Immortelle essential oil stimulates collagen production, filling in wrinkles and firming the skin,
•Bellis perennis extract brightens the complexion while evening skin tone*.

Our new formula includes Garden Nasturtium extract which enhances the skin’s natural ability to reflect light. Your complexion will be smoother and brighter, with a health, youthful glow. Additionally, skin is protected by mineral origin UV filters, to prevent the appearance of dark spots. A combination of Sunflower, Ivy and Rice Loaf extracts fight against the harmful effects of pollution.

Dermatologically tested. Non comedogenic

Directions

Apply each morning to clean, dry face and neck, after the daily moisturiser. Shake before use.

Summary
As a very high sun factor user (seriously I can burn through clothing on an overcast day) I was very interested in trying this product and it has both good and bad points. The liquid is very light and easy to apply. It's very white and you would suspect that it would be overly obvious on your skin but actually it absorbs reasonably well and isn't uncomfortable on the skin. The scent is pleasantly nondescript but it does transfer which I found off putting. The protective layer is obvious in terms of a slight stiffness in the skin but not unpleasant. The overall impact was okay rather than good and certainly nothing to justify the price and it takes some serious removal from you hands (the reality of high sun factor I'm afraid). Nice and I would use it if given but I wouldn't buy it for myself.

Summary
This product is a light textured cream which is easy to apply without streaks of white residue. It provides high factor protection and is absorbed easily by the skin. It makes a good base over which you can apply make up. It represents good value for this kind of product.
