Small head but does the job and what a good price!

The head of this is on the small side compared to other flat top brushes I have. I bought this primarily to apply my cream foundations and even though I was slightly sceptical at the start, with the hairs being not that densely packed, I was impressed at its performance. This brush dabbed on my liquid/cream foundations very evenly and easily with no streaks. It's also quick to dry. I've bought 2 more as backups.
Supplement for sun protection

I purchased this (onto my 3rd bottle now) primarily for its sun protection properties, in addition to using sunscreen daily. I'm not averse to sun-tanning occasionally when I head to the pool for a swim or go on a scuba diving vacation. What I don't want is for my skin to fry unnecessarily. With all sunscreens the same at either SPF 30+ or SPF 50, I find that I don't tan as rapidly after taking astaxanthin, as compared to my pre-astaxanthin days. I was recently away for 10 whole days of scuba diving in The Philippines and only came back 2 shades darker (i.e. MAC NC 20 to MAC NC 30). This really helps with sun protection. As for eye health and keeping wrinkles at bay, we'll have to monitor this longer. I purchased the bottle when it was US$20+. The price has gone up to over US$30+ in the space of a handful of months. No me gusta.
Helps to plump up and lessen appearance of fine lines but has no staying power

This has a pleasant taste and doesn't have a waxy feel on the lips. After constant usage, it lips are slightly plumper with fine lines less prominent. However, this has no staying power. Even without licking my lips, this fades after half an hour or so. Given the cheap price, it's not too shabby to use and apply constantly. But I'd recommend layering a lipbalm with more staying power over this if you need good hydration.
