What is it: Consider this super moisturizing cushion compact a skincare-makeup hybrid. Made with over 46% camellia flower extracts (instead of water) and camellia flower seed oil (5%) from the pristine eco-system of Korea’s Jeju Island, this cushion infuses skin with hydration, nourishment, and antioxidant protection, all without any stickiness. At the same time, this cushion uses a patented skin coating technology to provide sheer coverage with a superfine, airy cream foundation that adheres well to skin, yet does not clog pores, controls excess sebum, and allows skin to breathe, making it a great option for those with acne-prone or sensitive skin. (It’s even great for teenage skin.) This illuminating cushion comes in two shades (Natural Beige and Pink Beige), imparts a brightened glow, and keeps skin hydrated without color oxidation throughout the day (so you don’t get that 3 pm “dark face”). And of course, with SPF 25/PA++, this cushion is the perfect way to reapply your sun protection (and touch up your makeup) throughout the day.
Dab the applicator puff into the cushion sponge and pat onto skin, starting from the center of the face and working outward. Layer on for fuller coverage. Reapply throughout the day as needed.
In its nature-based skincare line, SanDaWha harnesses the purity and power of the camellia flower that thrives in the unique ecosystem of Jeju Island, considered Korea’s Hawaii for its tropical climate and lush greenery. Camellia seed oil is rich in vitamins, omega-3, -6, and -9, and oleic acid; absorbs well without stickiness; and helps to deeply hydrate skin. Using a cold-pressing process to naturally extract unrefined camellia oil, thereby preserving its skin-nourishing properties, SanDaWha emphasizes high quality ingredients over fancy packaging. SanDaWha believes in skincare that is kind to your skin, your health, and the environment, and never uses harmful ingredients.
