[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I think I must be slower than I used to be – this week is so busy but I’m sure that I used to be able to fit everything in and now I’m having to go at 100 mph to do 70 mph of work! Anyone else? So, I will say ahead that when I tested the new Monika Blunder Undercover Face Creme at the weekend, I knew it wasn’t for me because I like creams that leave my skin feeling more flexible and dewy. However, Blunder Cover was one of the most popular bases I’ve ever featured on my site – one of the very useful things about affiliate links is that you can accurately track what people like to buy so I know that it was a winner.
Personally, I think this creme is for those who like a mattified skin finish before applying a base. It does take a little working in but you can almost feel it wrapping your complexion – well, I say almost, you can. As far as ingredients go, the creme contains alpine rose, edelweiss and mountain arnica (it’s formulated and made in Germany) and acts as a gripper for your foundation. So, if you have a tendency to lose your base as the day wears on I think you will find that this extends the life of it.
It’s lush and silky to the touch so you think it will be dewy on the skin – but it isn’t. The more I think of it, the more I think it’s a genius formula for oily skin (or normal skin if you don’t like dew) because it has all the right collagen stimulating factors, redness reduction ingredients and antioxidants. Omega 3 and 6 in rosehip oil, shea butter, squalane and something new to me – Pinolumin; an inflammation calming pine extract. It’s mightily priced at £85 HERE so it’s a considered purchase but if you have got along well with Blunder Cover Base HERE you will find it a perfect partner.
