We all know SPF is the most important step in our daily skin care routine, but finding the right one for your skin that doesn’t make you feel too greasy or leaves you with the dreaded white cast can be a challenge. Introducing MECCA’S first SPF50+ Sun Serum which offers a trifecta of benefits: Brightening Sun Serum helps to minimise the appearance of sun damage, protects against future damage and refines skin complexion with the cumulative benefits of active skincare. As always, Mecca Cosmetica continues to prioritise transparency and trust with customers by sharing potent levels of active skincare ingredients and Brightening Sun Serum is no exception.
The ultra-lightweight formulation with broad spectrum protection is bolstered by 3% niacinamide to smooth the appearance of fine lines and boost radiance. Liquorice root extract reduces the appearance of pigmentation and helps shield against environmental aggressors, while saccharide isomerate hydrates and smooths skin. Applied as the last step in your skincare routine, the transparent serum melts into skin, imparting a luminous glow to create the perfect, dewy skin or base for makeup to follow.
MECCA’s Head of Skin Education, Lucy Shaw, knows that the best SPF is the one you will wear every day. So, having a formulation with the dual benefits of skincare and skin-prep only gives more reason to reach for your SPF in the morning.
“If you are a skincare lover, rest assured this trifecta of benefits in reviving, correcting and protecting has you covered. If you’re a makeup wearer, you’ll find that this sun serum isn’t a typical sunscreen that may disturb makeup, rather it enhances the application, leaving a hydrated, bright and luminous base for those who (like me!) favour a dewy finish for their foundation and tinted moisturisers alike. Alternatively, it imparts the best barely-there natural glow.” says Shaw.
The SPF50+ Brightening Sun Serum is the latest addition to the bestselling To Save Face collection, set to accompany the top-seller To Save Face Superscreen SPF50+ in customer’s SPF ‘wardrobe’; an approach to sun protection that considers customer’s dynamic and varied SPF needs, just as we do skincare. As industry leaders in luxury sunscreen formulation, Mecca Cosmetica has garnered an almost cult-like following for its Australian-made sun protection range through the release of luxurious and skin-loving formulas that refresh the conversation around skin and sun safety.
Proudly tried, tested and formulated in Australia, To Save Face SPF50+ Brightening Sun Serum is cruelty-free and made without parabens, sulphates or phthalates.
The break down:
also known as vitamin B3, this skincare powerhouse smooths the appearance of fine lines, boosts radiance and hydrates.
LIQUORICE ROOT EXTRACT:
a radiance-boosting antioxidant, this works to reduce the appearance of age spots and pigmentation.
1% SACCHARIDE ISOMERATE:
a plant-derived ingredient, this works to hydrate dry skin leaving it visibly smoother and softer.
1% DL-ALPHA TOCOPHEROL ACETATE:
this derivative of vitamin E and powerful antioxidant protects the skin against environmental aggressors.
Directions for use: It’s important to note that SPF should always be the last step in your skincare routine. Apply your usual skincare products first (including moisturiser), then apply a generous amount (one teaspoon for the face, neck and ears) of the To Save Face SPF50+ Brightening Sun Serum evenly over dry skin at least 20 minutes prior to sun exposure. Follow with makeup if desired. Reapply every two hours and more often after swimming, excessive perspiration or towelling.
