To prep the brush, pump it three times; then make small circular motions on the back of the hand to release the powder. At this point, the brush is ready to use. If the minerals are not releasing from the brush, repeat the prepping stage. This should be a one-time process, please do not keep pumping the brush with every use! To begin, start at the top of the forehead and apply the minerals in small circular motions. Go thoroughly down one side of the face and then up the other side, ending back at the forehead. For light coverage, complete this process two to three times. For medium coverage, repeat this process three to five times. At first, it might appear that the minerals have not given enough coverage or that the powder is sitting on the face. Please allow 3–5 minutes after each application to assess coverage on your skin, then apply more if needed. Use the Stone Crop Hydrating Mist to set Sun Defense Minerals for longer protection.

I've used this product off and on for years. I always come back because it's the best. It stays on in the sun and sweat, it looks amazing, smells amazing and leaves me looking dewy and glowing. Its my favorite sunscreen by far.
However the application brush/container is terrible. It's so bad I actually unscrew the bottom and use a different brush. The process is annoying and takes extra time . I hope eminence fixes this issue because it's such a great product without the application issues. The brush it comes with does not spread the product evenly or we'll, gets clogged easily and the brush bristles come off everywhere on my face and it's so messy. Overtime the brush just completely falls apart which is how I learned to unscrew the bottom and use my own brush.
I haven't use any sun screen before and this is my first one. I love it! I use this with Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Hydrator without worrying about clogged pores. I choose Peaches and Cream shade and doesn't really suit to my skin color. Probably buy the Translucent next time.
I purchased this color since it's summertime and thought it'd be great to add a little sunny glow to my face. :)
I still prefer the lighter color (peaches & cream) for my day to day wear & protection. But the darker color looks nice as a light bronzer, and adds a kiss of color to your forehead, down the nose, and cheeks.
I can see that this particular color may have limited use only for the summer months... but I will give it a go for winter on my cheeks to see what it looks like on my lighter complexion.
And b/c this is all natural, I don't have to worry about it expiring any time soon.
ps. friends and family have been commenting about how amazing my skin has looked ... and I credit this ALL to eminence skincare!!
I have light to medium skin and purchased the peach color.
As for application, the first use does take a little getting used to. But WOW, it makes your skin look nearly flawless after application. For blemishes/red marks, you just have to work it in a little more... but it does help buff out skin imperfections.
The ONLY thing I don't care for is that it's a challenge cleaning the brush head. I am SUPER diligent with cleansing brushes every time after I apply blush or powder (this is key to removing dead skin cells, oils, etc.) so, when I clean the brush for the Defense Minerals wand, I have to ever so carefully only clean ONLY the tip of the bristles with soap and hot water, and then I kind of, squeeze it dry in a towel. Next, I lay it flat to thoroughly dry.
ANYWAY... :) this item provides EXCELLENT sun protection, makes your skin look smooth and, as if you're wearing foundation.
Looking forward to trying another color too!
I LOVE the wooden box it comes in. Nice touch!!
The product itself is what I’ve been searching for all these years. It’s lightweight, not smelly, reapplication does not interfere with my makeup, all while providing SPF. However, the packaging needs improvement. You can’t fully wash the brush without sacrificing powder, the pump has to be pushed multiple times before the product comes out, and the bristles end up on my face. As a result, I empty the powder into my own container and pair it with a makeup brush to quickly apply on the go. For the price, I would much rather have the product come in a loose powder container, so I’m not disposing the brush and wooden box each time I repurchase. With that feedback, I’m giving this product a full star review because don’t get me wrong I’m going to continue to repurchase the powder because it’s wonderful, but for my personal needs I wish the packaging was simplified and less focused around a built-in brush.
