So what is it and how does it work?
Well, it’s basically a primer, skin brightener and a color corrector but with an amazing triple-swirled helix formula that makes all the difference.
The formula contains a Youth Revival Bio-Available Mineral Complex which is said to hydrate and balance the skin, diminish the look of fine lines, minimize pores and control oil. Ooooh, fancy!
Can you see the 3 colors in the images above? Yup? Okay, so that’s the triple-swirled helix that I mentioned above. Each color in the swirl serves a different purpose:
Green: minimizes redness;
Lavender: counteracts sallow undertones and
Peach: brightens, illuminates and diminishes the appearance of sunspots.
Pretty smart, hey?
That’s all cool, but does it really work??
Well, on the packaging it promises to ‘immediately improve skin tone, even out your complexion and helps to smooth fine lines.’ and honestly, it delivers just that, well except for the fine lines thing because I didn’t have any to start off with so I wouldn’t know, but it definitely improves skin tone and the complexion.
The first time I used it, I could immediately see the difference in my skin. It looked much more even and brighter than before, which was great considering my skin was very dull due to acne scars 😔.
I’ve even noticed a difference in the size of my pores – I had very large pores around my cheek area and these have decreased in size after I started using Stila’s One Step Correct.
So yup, it really does work but don’t expect it to cover up acne scars or other marks, it’s just a corrector not a foundation or concealer.
And is it suitable for acne-prone or sensitive skin?
OH MY GOD, yes! I have both acne-prone and sensitive skin and it works so well with my skin. I have experienced absolutely no breakouts from using it, whatsoever. I promise! And I’ve been using it for a while now, I use it every morning, without fail, on a cleansed face before applying my sunblock and it’s amaze!
So it’s worth it then?
Definitely! It retails for about R375-R385 which is fairly priced for a product that actually delivers what it promises. It’s certainly a product that you won’t regret buying! You should try it out ☺️!
Here’s to bright and even-toned skin, lovelies!
