Spring 2010: Shiseido Integrate Mineral Base SPF25 PA+

Woot! A Japanese drugstore brand jumping on the mineral-makeup-bandwagon!
I read about the new 3 products from Integrate on my favorite blog Rouge Deluxe (owned by my good friend Iris *smooch*) and was keen to try at least one of them myself to see how I´d like it =D

According to Iris the products are free of parabens and fragrance, are non-comedogenic and allergy-tested. Sounds good!
The 3 products are the Mineral Base I purchased, 2 shades of loose and 3 shades of pressed powder foundation. I was pretty sure that none of the pressed powder foundations would fit and I dislike loose powders of any sort so I skipped those but the Mineral Base got me really excited so this ended up recently in my Ichibankao shopping cart.

The simple white squeeze tube contains 25g and offers an SPF of 25 PA+ and 100% pure mineral water. On the tube it says "Be happy with the power of Mineral". Kinda cute, right? =D

So am I happy with the power of Mineral? Yea I pretty am!
This Mineral Base is tinted in a very light neutral beige color ("Clear Beige"). It actually offers a decent sheer coverage so on good skin days this could even do for me, I sort of see this as a lightweight BB Cream substitute!

The texture is creamy but lightweight and evens out my skin perfectly while keeping it soft and supple. The finish is on the velvety matte side.
I have not experienced the slightest irritation so far (and I used the base daily for the past 1-2 weeks) so I am very content with this product.

I can highly recommend this lovely makeup base and can see how it will be beneficial to use this underneath your regular (mineral) powder or regular liquid/cream/mousse foundation.

Panda ♥ said...

this looks good :) Do you think it would work on it's own like a bb cream?

Hey Kathi,
Glad to hear that you liked it! I saw the line when I visited Tokyo two weeks ago but I was already all shopped out at that point in terms of makeup so I didn't really look at it closely. I'm testing Skin79 BB Creams at the moment so I've been checking your reviews constantly!

That looks like a really good makeup base. Wish they had interogate in Singapore.

It sounds so good! Tiffany and I have been on the hunt for paraben and fragrance free products and this completely fits the bill, especially with the SPF! I'll be adding this to my wishlist. :D
