Like any other products, it comes in a box.

This is the side of the box:

Ingredients are listed really clearly as you can see above.

This is the other side of the box which has the caution written on it, plus, storage instructions:

Like most products, you have to keep it in a fresh and dry environment.

This is another side which has cute lil images:

The other side with some info:

This is how the bottom of the box looks like:

This product is made in Italy and it has a UVA of 3 stars. 

This is how the product looks like once you take it out of the box:

It actually looks like a replica of the box, only in bottle form.

This is how the bottom of the product looks like:

Pretty much the same information which you can obtain from the bottom of the box.

Cap is screw on type as you can see below:

After removing the cap, you can see there is a plastic seal to keep it clean and to ensure the powder doesn't dirty the cap.


I gave this product to my mom. She reviewed this. :)
She became a shade fairer after putting this on. Not in a weird way, it looks really natural on her.
It brings out the brightness of her skin.
For coverage, it doesn't cover her pigmentation & redness. It doesn't cover anything actually which is why on the box, they did mention OPTIMAL, and not full. :)
As for oil, it kept her oil free all day. 
This is really good in the sense that other foundation will make her face oily after a few hours but this doesn't.
It really does what it claimed in the sense that the final result is matte and not cakey. That's TRUE!

Here's a lil before & after pic of using this product:

no editing was done apart from cropping and inserting the before and after words.

Note: the above experience was written based on a Q&A session I had with my mom regarding this product.


My mom said that this product is not bad at all and that if it needed any improvement, it would just be on coverage.

Will I purchase?:

More to will my mom purchase? Yes, she would.
