Skindinavia: 10 Years Younger Makeup Setting Spray - A Review+ A GIVEAWAY

How do Lady Gaga and Britney keep their making looking amazing while performing under all those lights? Well, it is easy with a product called Skindinavia. I had never heard of it but was extremely excited to try it out especially with summer coming. As a local reporter for a small community website I expect I will be wearing more makeup when I head out during the hot months and looking good, youthful and energetic is important to me especially in the media field.

Let me tell you about this former Hollywood secret spray that has been keeping celebrities looking amazing.

Set and hold makeup over uneven skin surfaces such as fine lines and large pores. This spray keeps the makeup surface smooth and hydrated, so makeup looks fresh and glowing while coverage is held perfectly all day.  Recommended for mature skin types.
Features and benefits
  • Extends makeup wear over uneven skin surfaces.
  • Fewer required touch-ups throughout the day.
  • Helps reduce makeup slippage into pores and fine lines.
Skindinavia invented the makeup finish as a simple way for women to keep their makeup looking flawless all day. Each spray uses our patented Temperature Control Technology® which prevents makeup from melting, drying out, becoming shiny, or creasing.

Skindinavia Makeup Finishes hold everything in place while giving you a healthy, natural glow. Never too dry or too oily. No touch ups or blotting. Just you and the perfect look you love. All day.

 Skindinavia's Hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and oil free.

 Our 10 Year's Younger setting spray is gentle, efficacious and used by Uma Thurman, Madonna and the cast of Dancing with the Stars, including Carrie Ann Inaba

The 411 by Maria: 

Interesting.  This was a really fun review. As a mommy blogger, I get more than my share of kid reviews and while we love every minute it was fun to have a review that the kids couldn't participate in. 

 My sister-in-law and I are always talking about woman today and during our parents time. Woman in their 40s now look amazing. We believe this is how 40s are supposed to look but are never afraid to try a new product to see if it makes a difference. Marta, wears full makeup everyday for her job so I asked her to join me on this review.

She compares it to a toner that you put over your makeup. It tights everything up and doesn't settle into the lines and wrinkles around her eyes or mouth. She also loved that she could spray it on without worrying about staining her clothing. "I was surprised that it didn't mess up my makeup. It was wet when you put it on but didn't run any of my makeup including my blush. No streaks. I used to spray with another toner when I was younger and always ended up having to fix it  my streaky blush. "

We have only used it for 6 days so far and so far. Basically when you are done applying your makeup, you use this as a finishing spray.  We also love that it extends the life of our makeup. 

I give this product a "B". A "B+" if you have dry or normal skin. While it definitely doesn't make you look 10 years younger, it does help with keeping your make up in place. If you have oily skin, like I do, the effect doesn't last all day - but other types of skin might have different result. If you use a powder foundation (something 35 and older women shouldn't be doing) this helps stop the powder settling into fine lines, something that instantly ages you. My final thought - while this product is OK, you can buy a cheap spray bottle fill half with sterile water, half Witch Hazel and you basically have the same thing, that gives you the same effect, for a fraction of the cost.

While I have combination skin, I found that the product definitely kept my make-up in place for most of the day. I don't know about the younger thing either but I am a realist and didn't expect it to. You can't fight gravity with a product and I have earned every one of my lines and I am proud of them. I don't agree with Marta on her rating, I believe like it more than OK and would give it a B+ because it does keep you from looking tired by the end of the day and since like her, my day never ends this is perfect for me. We definitely have very different skin so our results would be different.
