MAC PREP+PRIME Fortified Skin Enhancer Illuminateur de Teint Spf35/PA+++ (yellow, Neutralize)

Another little gem I picked up for THB1155 (Baht) at Duty Free at The airport in Bangkok. A little really goes a long way and is excellent under concealer or foundation for diffusing naso-labial folds, corner-of- mouth pigmentation and any other areas in need of a radiance boost. My only criticism is that it can be a little drying.

You may be wondering what the PA+++ means.All sunscreen labels list a sun protection factor (SPF). SPF is a measurement of how much protection the sunscreen offers from the UVB rays that cause sunburn (it refers to TIME of exposure).The way SPF works is if it takes you 10 minutes to start burning normally, wearing SPF 15 would mean it would take 15 times as long to burn–150 minutes. A few sunscreen labels also list a "PA" ranking, which refers to the amount of protection the sunscreen offers from the UVA rays that may cause long-term skin damage. PA rankings are listed as PA+, PA++ or PA+++. The more +'s, the more protection from UVA rays. For maximum protection from both UVA and UVB rays, choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen that contains avobenzone,  zinc oxide or titanium dioxide
