More specifically, this product is committed to deliver the following health and beauty benefits for your skin:

Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Ingredients

Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer
  • Zinc Oxide (16.2%): A physical sunscreen active consisting of mineral compound, that is non-toxic and effectively adds an additional layer to protect your skin from UV, unlike its chemical sunscreen counterparts that work by absorbing UV and transforming it to heat
  • Ascorbic Acid: Revitalizes your skin cells to encourage optimal performance spanning from protective to repair to regenerative mechanisms
  • Green Tea: Boosts this product’s antioxidant content, rendering added protection against UV but also protection from free radicals
  • Ceramides: Help rebuild your skin’s protective outer layer to create a more resilient layer that better protects your skin from damaging UV and free radicals

Directions

Apply Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and keep reapplying the product every 2 hours throughout the day, after getting wet or, following profuse sweating. Manufacturer advises to use a water-resistant sunscreen instead when you’re going swimming or, if you’re expecting to engage in activities that will make you sweat hard.

Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Advantages

  • This product is formulated for use on all skin types, safe for use on sensitive skin, and complements every shade of skin.
  • Product formula is rid of toxic chemical sunscreen actives that have been demonstrated time and again to have disrupting effects on hormone functions
  • Cane and Austin SPF 50 reviews have repeatedly praised the mattifying effect of the product on skin.

Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Disadvantages

  • This product is not water-resistant nor sweat-proof and is therefore not ideal for high performance use, requiring you to layer it or to replace it with a high performance sunscreen when you know you will be spending longer hours outdoors.
  • This product contains menthol ingredients which can be severely irritating to your skin.
  • Several Cane and Austin SPF 50 reviews have highlighted how poorly this product blended with makeup, and how its mattefied finish eventually soaked in grease as a result.

Conclusion

Cane + Austin Prime & Protect Mattifying Primer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 provides fair levels of UV protection, antioxidant protection, hydration with some skin regenerating functions that is non-toxic and ideal for daily use. Where it severely falls short is in providing high performance protection when you need protection the most.

Facial moisturizing products are in no short supply today, and this large selection might make the process of choosing the best moisturizer for your personal needs to seem a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, we've taken the time to research each of the top facial moisturizers on how they rate in several different key categories. More specifically, we believe that every quality moisturizer should provide the basic benefit of improving overall facial skin appearance, including both skin tone and skin texture. Additionally, a quality moisturizer should contain compounds that are capable of binding to collagen fibres in order to provide the most long term results. Finally, facial moisturizers should ideally be able to deeply cleanse skin at the same time that they moisturize it. Below is a summary of our findings regarding the top facial moisturizers and these key considerations.
