I have used this all summer as a single product to replace SPF + tinted moisturizer or foundation for everyday wear (just not if I am going to be out in the sun for long periods of time). I have found that this clumps a little if I use too much or apply serum right before - now I just give my serum 30-45 minutes to absorb and apply a small amount of this right before I leave the house and it's usually fine. I am pretty pale-skinned and this is a good match for my skin tone. I actually don't have any issue with the packaging - I just store it upside down (cap up) and it's fine. I find that pump dispensers end up wasting way more product and I can never get the last ~25% out so I like that this is a different design. I just wish Ayuna would use glass instead of plastic for their packaging!
I'm a big Ayuna fan and I enjoy using Velo instead of my foundation. It doesn't very light coverage but the healthy glow this provides is what I love most. My skin is light and this color is a perfect match for me. I take two stars off for the packaging that is pretty messy and the fact that this product seperates.
I love Ayuna and I love Beauty Heroes, but this has to be one of the most disappointing and overrated products I've ever used, particularly given the hefty price tag. I resubscribed on the basis of a customer-service assurance that this product is suitable for darker skin. I'm on the medium-dark side, and I can definitely say that this is not the case. (Which is pretty ridic—it's 2019, Ayuna...you should know and do better.) The product leaves a white cast that is only alleviated by removing it altogether. Moreover, it pills like crazy (and I don't even use a lot of unnecessary products beneath it). It makes me wonder how much testing and refining was done before rolling Velo out, as I honestly cannot fathom using this product in any serious or long-term way. This is definitely a live-and-learn, never-again experience.
I am always on the market for a good SPF that is easy to use and effective. I wish this was one of those rare finds, but I unfortunately do not think it is anything close to amazing. And that’s mainly because of the pilling - if it weren’t for it, I’m sure it’d be a wonderful product. Then again, the pilling here is a major problem, and something I find hard to curb or prevent. It’s not that I haven’t had pilling happen before, of course I have; but this badly? Not really. I feel like as I’m trying to rub (I almost have to pat it in, in efforts to disturb the product as little as possible) it in and even out the lotion, everything is just balling up and effectively disappearing from my skin. I wonder if I even have any sun protection to speak of by the end of application. And yes - I’ve tried using it along with many different products, or as minimally as possible, and once even by itself. The pilling issue is certainly diminished when using Velo by itself, but that’s just not the way I intended to use it. I’m happy I got to try this in a box, instead of buying it myself- for the price tag, I’d be monumentally disappointed.
I'm still not entirely sure what this product is, does it provide spf? Is it an anti-aging product with tinted moisturizing properties? What I do know is that it feels amazing, I love the smell, and it compliments well under my tinted moisturizer. I agree with the review that the bottle could dispense better, seems to waste some each time getting caught in top.
