Sofina Primavista Long Keep Base UV

May 12, 2014 at 10:25 pm | Posted in Beauty | 9 Comments

This review is so overdue that Sofina has now launched a drugstore version at a lower price point, but almost identical great formula. However, that range, the Sofina Primavista Ange was formulated specially for the Taiwan market, and might not be easily available elsewhere.

Sofina Primavista’s bases are much raved about, and I also love their Multi Cover Base, which is a more moisturising base, which helps even out my skintone as well as provide a teeny tiny level of coverage.

The Long Keep Base UV is more to provide a long lasting base that keeps the oil away and keeps your foundation from melting away during the day.

Unlike the squeeze tube of the Multi Cover Base, the Long Keep Base comes in a little bottle that you have to shake before use, much like many Japanese sunscreens/bases.

The needle-nose opening makes it easy to dispense just the right amount, as the product is quite liquidy.

The Long Keep Base resembles a typical Japanese sunscreen, which is a whitish liquid that spreads very easily over your skin and dries down slightly matte. This is great for lady who want their foundation to last throughout the day, especially those who are out and about, or like me, find the heat to be quite unbearable most of the time. Though the SPF count is too low by itself, wearing this over a separate sunblock is a small inconvenience for the long-lasting effects. My foundation stays on much longer, the shine is kept away for much longer, and generally it does it’s job of keeping my makeup on my face much longer.

If you have the chance, pick up Sofina Primavista Ange Long Keep Base, which is the cheaper drugstore version in Taiwan. The differences are almost negligible. If not, Sofina Primavista Long Keep Base is well worth it’s higher price point.
