Reviewed and rejected: Armani Face Fabric

September 3, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment
Giorgio Armani's Face Fabric($45) qualifies for an Emperor's New Clothes Award. I know its supposed to be a 'barely there' foundation and, indeed, I am a big fan of translucent tints. But this stuff is so barely there, it is invisible.

What really irks me about it is that there is absolutely nothing in the formulation that justifies the claim that it has a "unique 3D Micro-fil technology". There is a spot of mica that will diffuse light. But what cosmetic doesn't contain mica these days? Apart from that, there are a couple of silicones, a sunscreen and a surfactant.

The presence of aluminum hydroxide is of concern. Alumina is a toxin (associated, amongst other things, with Alzheimer's) and hydroxide is thought to be one of the most harmful forms because it is easily absorbed.

Ingredients in Armani Face Fabric

Octinoxate 2%, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Aluminum Hydroxide. May contain: Mica, Red 36, Yellow 5 Lake, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide
