ABSOLUTION LA CRÈME GOMMANTE

In winter I use Kypris Moonlight Catalyst as a “chemical” exfoliator. However, in summer it is advisable to avoid retinol like products as they may cause photosensitivity.

However, it still goes on the lips very easily and with lots of pigment, The colour is a mix of pink/brown/peachy with a coral hint. It has a warm undertone, unlike Rosewater.
