Where To Buy Koh Gen Do __LINK__
The original formula is Moisture Foundation, a cult favorite among professional makeup artists for its creamy lightweight texture, buildable coverage, and long wear. A little goes a long way with this concentrated formula. For a minimal effect, just spot and blend with fingers only where coverage is needed. Or you can use a damp sponge to blend the foundation over the entire face for a light wash of coverage. Then, if you need to, build the coverage by tapping a tiny bit of product just where you need it. If you prefer medium to full coverage, a brush works nicely. My personal go-to is a flat kabuki style brush to place the product, and then stipple and blend. Pro-tip: follow up with a damp sponge and gently press the foundation into the skin for the most natural finish.

Ive on a new holy grail foundation hunt. There arent any koh gen dou counters near where i live so I'm frantically trying to decide between shade 213 and 123, and would be very thankful if you could offer some advice?
Cleansing SPA Water comes in a variety of sizes, and I noticed that the available sizes can depend on where you buy it. As I mentioned above, I was sent the 12.85 fl.oz./380 ml pump bottle to try, and that size is sold at Sephora and Lovelyskin.com along with 300 ml and 480 ml sizes. In addition, Sephora sells a $15 travel size with 3.38 fl.oz./100 ml. Right now, Lovelyskin.com has a July 4 sale with 25% of Koh Gen Doh Cleansing SPA Water and free shipping in the U.S.
The main concern with nanoparticles is that they are so tiny that they are absorbed into the skin more than we want them (ideally sunscreen should remain on the surface of the skin). Once absorbed they might form unwanted complexes with proteins and they might promote the formation of evil free radicals. But do not panic, these are concerns under investigation. A 2009 review article about the safety of nanoparticles summarizes this, "to date, in-vivo and in-vitro studies have not demonstrated percutaneous penetration of nanosized particles in titanium dioxide and zinc oxide sunscreens". The English translation is, so far it looks like sunscreens with nanoparticles do stay on the surface of the skin where they should be.
All in all, Titanium Dioxide is a famous sunscreen agent and for good reason, it gives broad spectrum UV protection (best at UVB and UVA II), it's highly stable, and it has a good safety profile. It's definitely one of the best UV-filter agents we have today, especially in the US where new-generation Tinosorb filters are not (yet) approved.
Other than that, Aluminum Hydroxide also often shows up in composite pigment technologies where it is used the other way around (as the base material and not as the coating material) and helps to achieve higher color coverage with less pigment.
Other than that, salt also works as an emulsion stabilizer in water-in-oil emulsions, that is when water droplets are dispersed in the outer oil (or silicone) phase. And last but not least, when salt is right at the first spot of the ingredient list (and is not dissolved), the product is usually a body scrub where salt is the physical exfoliating agent.
It almost always comes stuck together with either Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide or Mica. In suncare products, it binds to physical UV filters to maximize their protection while minimizing any white casts. It also has good chemical stability with no irritation. In makeup, it is often paired with Mica where it offers nice hydrophobic properties and improves skin adhesion - meaning it will make it easier for products to stay where they should be. 041b061a72
