WHY I BOUGHT THIS: I was searching for some simple
face powder because my forehead near my hairline seemed really reflective
and shiny... sort of out of sync with the rest of my face. No, no, no,
no.... not make-up! Powder! Really, I'm a man for crying out loud...
WHY I WAS SKEPTICAL: Well, this
thing sort of looks like make-up. And it's made by a company called
"4VOO". When I say that name out loud I am imagining an
effeminate Frenchman, complete with a frilly get-up and pencil thin
moustache, offering me a plethora of flowery perfumes and beauty-enhancing
make-up products. "It's for voo Monsieur."
WORK?: Ok, let's get to the point: it works. In
fact, it works very well. There is a slight tint to the
product, but it goes on invisible after blending with the provided sponge
applicator. Sure, if you really laid this stuff on thick it could probably
be detected, but normal use will smooth the appearance of the skin and
take out the shine. My skin is very fair, and it works well.
might also add that this item was really packaged and presented well. It's
obvious that 4VOO cares about the product they are selling. They
even list all ingredients on their website, so if you're concerned about
toxins you can check it out yourself. Most of the ingredients are all
So if you will excuse me, I must go powder my
I kept on searching for new men’s cosmetic brands online and one of the
interesting brands I have discovered and tried is 4VOO. I have
never heard of this brand but when I checked them online, magazines and
beauty editors speak highly of it so I gave it a try. The brand is famous
in the US, UK and some part of Northern America. The product is a face
powder. This is quite unusual for men to use this and I rarely see
somebody use it.
I am using it because I had oily skin. I have this problem with my skin
ever since. Even if I will use non-oily substance for my moisturizer, when
the temperature becomes so humid, my face always transforms into a
slippery surface. I wanted to use a face powder to minimize shine. This
product is contained in a container similar to Maybelline’s or Clinique
however, its casing is discreet because it is silver. It comes with a
The first thing I appreciate about this product is the color of
the powder. It claims it has a translucent shade which is
very true. The color of the powder when you look at it is pale,
almost barely nude. I wanted this to subside naturally when I apply it
because it is too distracting if people will notice that I am using face
powder on my face. After a minute, the powder feels like nothing on my
face, it is not obvious nor it showed any color. This is the good thing
about the shade because when the brand guaranteed it has a translucent
hue, it really is. So men in general will not be worried about this.
I also like that this can improve the texture of the
face, at least during the time when you are wearing it.
Right after it is absorbed, your face will look like it has no
pores at all. Very smooth and young looking.
I have to applaud this brand too for creating a product which
has the best ingredients for nurturing your face. This has
chamomile, grape seed extract, Vitamins C, E and A and made from silk. I
like that there is a proactive use of natural skin-caring ingredients.
This is the best way to know whether this product is safe for the skin or
not. I also like that the most common skin-nurturing Vitamins–C, E and A
are present. No wonder this did not cause any zits in my face. This also
has sun protection which makes the ingredients complete.
For me though, the best test I can give a face powder is on its ability
to control shine. This is the main reason why I used this. I wanted a
product to diminish oil in my face. What I noticed was how this
was developed to make the texture of your skin velvety and it can maintain
that for hours. I never have to deal with too much shine
in my face since I started using this.
