How is it possible for me to not buy a skincare item that has Quince in it! This is Quince:
Korres, of course did a Quince Lip Balm although it just smelt sort of apple-y and pear-y to me.
Anyway, the purchase was this – Skinfood’s Quince Whitening Sun Lotion.
Not only will it protect, it will whiten too and brighten too. Honest.
With a generous SPF 34 and 70ml of product, I treated this lotion as a body sunscreen as opposed to face.
Its a cream texture, which I prefer but it sinks in nicely without any residue. Sunscreen has come such a long way, hasn’t it?
The scent is VERY quincy. How can I describe it – sort of like a sour pear. I think it does smell quite authentic – but I’m not sure its one I actually like enough to apply all over my body. I mean, what about the mosquitos?
I bet they like to suck on a quince.
Texture wise, its great – sinks in nicely, quite hydrating (good for dry skin ladies) although I didn’t notice any whitening properties as such. Brighter skin, I guess so, with no noticeable ashy residue.
But the smell – is strong. I don’t think I like it too much. I suggest you go and sniff a quince before you decide if you want this. Nice idea though!
This was an unexpensive sun cream, less than £10 for 70ml which will go a long way.
I will use this on my body – somewhere far away from my nose though, like my legs and ankles as its a little too strongly scented for my liking.
