Spring will be here before you know it, but whether the sun is out or not, you should be covering up . . . with SPF, that is. SPF 30 is widely considered the absolute minimum you should wear on a daily basis, and we have everything you need to keep your skin gorgeous from head to toe — plus, a new CC cream launch! On Kirbie: Forever 21 top.
The two-in-one beauty product has come a long way from Pert Plus. While anti-acne creams have been infused with anti-aging ingredients (and vice versa) for a few years now, DDF's new Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer ($85) addresses something more specific, and promises instant results.
This is a big claim, so after applying it, I stood at my bathroom mirror waiting for my pores to disappear. While "instant" may be an overstatement, I did notice my pores looked smaller within a few minutes. The flowery-scented serum has the texture of a mattifier and yields the same results. The difference is the inclusion of a vitamin peptide complex, which (according to the company) has been proven to drastically speed the renewal rate of the skin's surface. Though I can't attest to the wrinkle reducing qualities just yet, it definitely includes some components of a good wrinkle cream, like Vitamin B3, and my skin feels softer. It didn't break me out and makeup slides right on top of it. The way things are going, I might even buy a magnifying mirror.
