ZA Cosmetics- True White DAY Protector Cream SPF 26 PA +++ – Review.
I got a small 5ml tube of ZA cream with my envy box. I wasn’t aware of “ZA Cosmetics”–as a brand but later came to know that it’s another brand from the house of Shiseido. Newly launched and making room in market however I was skeptical to use any new skincare products on face before checking online. The one I got and the one I will be reviewing today are completely different. The one I got in small 5ml tube was “ZA true white day cream” I used and loved it. I brought “ZA Cosmetics- True White DAY Protector Cream SPF 26 PA +++” mistakenly. I messed up with both names and got confused.
What Company Claims:
Daytime Moisturizer SPF26 PA++
Provides comfortable, light-weight yet strong protection against UV rays at daily base. Helps diminish spots and acne marks at the same time.
Minimizes the appearance of visible melanin accumulation.
Veils skin with a bright, pearly radiance that enhances skin tone for a healthy look.
How to use: Smooth an appropriate amount evenly over face. Apply before foundation, for a more beautiful finish.
Price: 799 INR for 35gms
It is a Daytime moisturizer with SPF26 PA+++. The texture of this cream is thicker than lotion but thinner than any cream. This is a white colour daytime moisturizer that claims to block UV rays and helps diminish spots and acne marks. It minimizes the appearance of visible melanin build up Veils skin with a bright, pearly radiance that enhances skin tone for a healthy look. I don’t have acne scars so can’t comment on that but I do have pigmentations around my cheekbone area. However I don’t see it working on them either. It minimizes the appearances of melanin formation for a shorter period of time i.e. the time when I use it, my face looks brighter. I am not too fond of this kind of product which acts only when applied.
Another downside of this product is -it gives strong grey cast to face which I hate the most. I have seen people slapping loads of Fair N lovely to give their face a good wash of white cast. Imagine the same situation here! I have never thought a brand from Shiseido can make such mistake. There are lots of moisturizers in the market which has spfs in them. Most of them give flashback which is understandable but making your face grey instead of radiance is a complete NO for me.
The cream blends easily into skin and leave no greasy feeling. It provides moisturisation to some extent but for super dry skin ladies I will not be suggesting it to anyone. It makes my skin smooth and supple. That’s the only good thing about it. But I am not happy with the white cast thing at all. Rest all good if you consider it as a normal moisturizer. But again with a price tag of 800 INR I would go and buy something else but not this.
What I like about ZA Cosmetics- True White DAY Protector Cream SPF 26 PA +++:
- It is a light weight day moisturizer.
- Has SPF 26 and PA+++
- Good for oily skin.
- The texture is quite thin and absorbs into skin easily.
- Provides minimum moisturization for dry skin.
- Doesn’t break out or irritate skin.
- Makes skin looks smoother.
What I don’t like about ZA Cosmetics- True White DAY Protector Cream SPF 26 PA +++:
- Give strong grey cast.
- Give flashback.
- Pricey for such a moisturizer.
- The brightening effect doesn’t last long. May be the day or two.
- Nothing fancy.
I will not recommend this product to anyone but yeah if you don’t have any problem getting grey cast face, you may go ahead.
