Today I will talk about the product from Jane Iredale called Powder-Me SPF. I was kindly gifted this product by the Benelux team from Jane Iredale (Hélène V Skincare). I was so thrilled when they approached me! I know autumn just started and the sun said goodbye to us, but you always have to wear sunscreen. Even when you live in a cloudy country like me, thanks Holland! I already spotted this item on their Instagram and I was fascinated by this amazing sunscreen powder puff! I received this item at the beginning of the summer, so I had enough time to test it out. Let’s see what my thoughts are about this product!
Jane Iredale is the president and founder of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics. She created the brand Jane Iredale because she noticed that a lot of actresses and models in de entertainment industry had to wear heavy makeup for their work. Because of the heavy makeup they had to take a lot of care of their skin. She created her own mineral makeup in het kitchen so these actresses didn’t have to wear harmful makeup on their skin but still looked great and beautiful from within. Now she has a leading role in the makeup industry for being the first makeup line with skin care benefits.
Jane Iredale is certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program, the leading internationally respected animal protection group for cruelty-free certification. Jane Iredale products are also certified cruelty-free by PETA.

Do you also struggle with an oily shiny face when you apply sunscreen on your face? Are you looking for a sunscreen that feels light on the skin? This dry sunscreen powder is definitely something you need in your life right now!
The amazing thing about this sunscreen item is that the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends you using this item daily to protect your skin against the sun damage. So it has been well-tested and totally cruelty-free! The first thing I noticed when I received this product is was the super cute cap with a mirror on top. Perfect when you are on the go and need to reapply the dry sunscreen powder on your face.
The moment you open the cap you find this amazing little puff on the inside! How great is this? Fun to use and also easy at the same time. No brush is needed for this dry sunscreen powder. Just remove the cap and start tapping this puff on your skin! It may will be a problem if you have a super oily skin. I do think the right amount of product is coming out when you tap it on your skin. If you do think you are missing some spots or it is not enough for you, just easily tap again. The puff might get a bit oily after a while when you use the puff on your oily skin. But luckily the puff is easy to remove so you can clean it at any time!
Here you can see the cute little mirror on top of the cap. Again, a great item to take it with you when you are on the go or when you need a little touch up!
I received the color called “Golden”. This tone is for light to medium skin, it is the most universal color of the Powder-Me in my opinion.
Now we can see this sunscreen powder in action! Grab the jar and gently tap it on your face or body. It can be used anywhere on your body. I like to tap it a few times at the same spot, just to be sure that it is all covered. The puff feels super soft on the skin, you can also use it as a brush and make circular motions with it to spread to sunscreen powder over your face. I own several puff’s like this, for example the YSL blush in exactly the same packaging. Only the puff is not that dense and soft so the blush can look a little patchy on your skin and hard to blend out with the puff. With this one I don’t experience this problem.
Powder-Me SPF in the color Golden: before vs after
After I applied the powder, my face felt super soft! Before it felt a bit wet/sticky because of my moisturizer, but after applying the sunscreen powder my face looks glowy and even. I was surprised that the sunscreen powder gave my face an even skintone. When I used this I didn’t need any foundation underneath this powder! This sunscreen powder gives you the right amount of color pay off and it looks like you are wearing natural powder foundation. Quit amazing that it is a sunscreen powder but it has the results of a light/medium powder foundation.
After wearing this powder for 6/8 hours, my face still looked even and glowy! It did became a little bit oily but that is how my skin always reacts after wearing powder/makeup. It was not more oily than usual, so it worked really well on my skin. I did a little bit of a touch up after those hours, and it still looked great when you reapply the powder on your face! I can’t really tell if this sunscreen protected my face well enough against the sun, but I used this on the most sunniest days of our summer here in Holland and my face didn’t turned red or became itchy.
Well, what do I have to say? This is the best sunscreen item I ever used to get rid of the sticky feeling! Perfect for those lazy sunny days when you want to leave the house but you are too lazy to apply makeup. Just tap it a few times on your face and you are well protected against the sun and you achieved a glowy even skin! Not only during the summer, but don’t forget to always use sunscreen even when the sun is not shining like in the winter.
It is fun to use and it looks pretty? I think everyone has a weakness for pretty looking items (guilty). Beside being a sunscreen it also gives you a healthy glow, we all hate that sticky feeling during the summer when we wear heavy makeup on the skin. This is the way to get out of your house looking beautiful and being protected. Not is this Powder-Me SPF amazing for the face but you can use it for you whole body. I even read a review on the Jane Iredale website that someone used this powder for her CAT! She used this powder on her white cat because her ears were always sun burned. How amazing is that?
I received a few other items from Jane Iredale to try out, I will place that review as soon as possible for you! For now, I’m really happy with this Powder-Me SPF item from Jane Iredale and I can recommend every human being to use this sunscreen powder if you hate the sticky feeling of a normal sunscreen or when you turn white like a ghost when you apply it. (:
Thanks a lot for reading x

I love Jane Iredale cosmetics, they are so good 🙂
Yes I was really surprised by this item, first time trying out this brand <3
I often struggle with reapplying sunscreen during the day above makeup and maybe this could be the solution? I’ve tried several different powder sunscreen from sephora’s site but unfortunately they looked quite powdery and dry over my foundation. Do you think this might be a better option (I have dry skin but I use liquid foundations). Have you tried it as a touch-up powder during the day?
Ps, I also have a white cat who is obsessed with sunbathing but ears get sunburnt (even in this autumn-y holland, I know). I use baby’s sunlotions but she seems to hate the scent and the feeling. Maybe this might be a solution?
I only used this sunscreen powder on itself, so only with moisturizer on my skin. So i’m not really sure how it looks like when you apply it on top of your liquid foundation. I have super oily skin so when I re applied it my skin looked still glowy, but if you have a dry skin i can’t really tell if this will work for you (please read reviews about this product from dry skin girls). This powder will be purrrfect for your cat! It doesn’t contains any perfumes or strong scent because it is all cruelty free and everything that can be bad for your skin. I read the review about the woman with the cat who had the same problem as you! She also had a white cat with white ears who gets sunburned all the time. This powder really helped her cat to protect her pet!
Haha I might just buy this to try on my cat as well as my skin then! Thanks for your tips and reply!
Youre welcome! Thanks for reading <3
