Birchbox Breakdown

Sunscreen buffs know that mineral makeup is the best way to keep skin protected from UV rays without risking any pore-cloggage. It’s no wonder, then, that Peter Thomas Roth’s Instant Mineral SPF 30 is a perpetual best seller. It provides broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection while infusing skin with anti-aging actives that even out your skin tone and prevent wrinkles before they pop up. The nifty powder brush makes it easy to apply the formula, and the translucent beige powder works on a range of skin tones, from pale to golden.

How to Use

Shake gently to release a dose of powder into the brush, and remove the cap. Brush lightly all over your face, either on bare skin or on top of your other makeup. To close, pull bottom down to conceal the bristles before replacing the cap.

I couldn't wait to get this product for the summer. I applied it for the first time , it made my face look white. I was disappointed in the product. I don't think it works on a range of skin tones....I have medium skin tone and it looked like power on my face.

Bought and returned

A little backstory...I originally wanted to try the Bare Minerals version but they didn't have my color. So I bought the PTR Instant Mineral SPF 30 buff brush (from a different makeup retailer). The brush was very scratchy on my face, the color was not transparent, and it smelled weird. I returned it for a refund. Bummer b/c I love the concept.

SPF without disrupting makeup

I LOVE this product. I keep it in my purse at all times to reapply sunscreen if out in the sun. You can put it on a bare face or totally made up and anywhere in between without disrupting makeup. It is like putting on translucent power. Doesn't smell funky. Doesn't make you feel greasy. Can be applied with no mirror, one handed. Just a good product. And the fact that my face is not nearly as tan as my body (just from regular sun exposure exercising, etc) let's me know it really is working. My only issue is I feel like it's the same size as a "trial size" I bought at another store for much less cost-- but perhaps brush is the same but there's just more product in there. Still worth it.

I bought this in the hopes of being able to apply sunscreen throughout the day over my makeup. It was WAY too messy and powder would get everywhere. I returned it.

Quick and easy

This instant sunscreen brush is a quick and easy way to apply sunscreen throughout the day without having that oily or heavy feeling on your skin. Such a simple way to make sure you are wearing your SPF daily!
