Cray-cray for SAMPAR's Crazy Cream

Ever since SAMPAR landed on our shores I have been intrigued by their products and the classy pink and white packaging, so I was delighted when they sent me their latest "Cosmakeup" product. "Cosmakeup" can be described as makeup that serves a dual purpose: it offers immediate visible results as well as long term clinically proven efficiency. SAMPAR achieves this "double action" promise by enriching their formulas with a complex they call "Urban Advance". This is a powerful anti-pollution shield that kickstarts the skin's vital functions and boosts the performance of SAMPAR's ingredients. 

Crazy Cream - Tan*

Crazy Cream is described as the "ideal fusion of comfort and technology". It's a perfecting tinted moisturiser that comes out whitish-grey and adapts to your skin tone. Your complexion is evened out and hydrated for 24 hours. I can't comment on the last fact because I don't think I've ever gone 24 hours without washing my face! The Crazy Cream also stimulates the skin's protection against photo-ageing UV rays. Your skin is left radiant, glowing, and perfectly even-toned.

The crazy cream is to be applied in the morning after your usual skincare routine (moisturiser included). You can apply it alone for a natural look or as a base for your makeup. I find it to be an excellent base for makeup, but that it doesn't provide enough coverage to be used on its own. The product comes in a beautiful clear and silver pump bottle, but I would have liked the bottle to have a lid or some sort of stopping mechanism, because with my luck something in my travel bag will press on the top and squirt the Crazy Cream everywhere.

All in all I think it's a really lovely product and that it definitely deserves a place in my makeup bag! SAMPAR products are sold at certain Woolworths stores. According to their Facebook page these stores are: Cavendish, V&A, Tyger Valley, Blue Route, Canal Walk, Westville, East Gate, Mall of the South, and Mall of the North.

Until next time!

  1. Hi again! Would you say that this replaces your primer? It sounds like something between a primer and a BB cream (for the skin benefits) and Clarins' Radiance Boosting Complexion Base. Very unique, I'm intrigued! Thanks xx

    1. Hi Marné! I'm actually not 100% sure, but as far as I understand it's more of a tinted moisturiser/BB cream hybrid than a primer. I've tried using it as a primer and it works fairly well, but it doesn't control shine (which is my main concern) so I don't think it's supposed to replace your primer. If you don't have a problem with shine, I think it would make an OK primer. That being said, makeup is meant to be experimented with, so try it out in different ways and see what works best for you! ;)
