Canmake Mermaid Gel - Review

It's really nice for certain companies to give trial kits, so you can try them out and check if that product will work for you or not without breaking your pocket.

I got this freebie when I bought some Canmake Products.

No comment on the packaging since this is a freebie trial sachet.
Smells like fragrance-free lotion.  This has the similar smell of VMV Sport Sunscreen.
The consistency is your typical cream, a little sticky.


  • Powerful, yet delectably moist, 
  • SPF50+/PA++++
  • smooth gel without that roughness or stickiness characteristic of most sunscreens. 
  • Recommended for those who prefer a light, refreshing sunscreen
  • Gel breaks down into a watery texture as you smooth it over your skin
  • After using face wash, this is all you need for complete skincare and UV protection, can also be used after your usual facial lotion and other skincare products, serves as a moisturizing make-up base with UV protection
  • Infuses your skin with moisture, helping your foundation to sit better and last longer
  • Use it on your body, as well as your face, this pleasant watery gel contains 85% beautifying ingredients
  • Sunscreen is most effective when reapplied frequently
  • Comes in an easily portable tube that makes it simple to adjust the amount you apply, so it's perfect for reapplying sunscreen when you're out and about.
It's easy to apply, smooth, with minimal stickiness.  It's lightweight, doesn't give a white cast when applied.  I've never used a make-up base before, so I don't know what to expect and I don't have a baseline product to compare to.

So to put this to the test, I compared this to The FaceShop Rice Ceramide Moisture Emulsion, this is my go to moisturiser prior to applying any make-up
I did not see any difference compared to the rice ceramide.  There's no difference with the color of my eyeshadow and blush comparing the two.  So I think as a make-up base, it's not in any better compared to a moisturiser.

Let's test the longevity...

In terms of wear, there's no difference also compared to the moisturiser. It's long-lasting, lasting for 11 hours.
Duration of use4 days, 1 sachet can be used for 2 days. I used 2 sachets before writing this review
SPF 50/PA ++++ - The sunscreen is what I love most about this product, it protects you from sun damages without giving you the 'white' cast that most sunscreens give.
I don't think it's any better vs moisturiser as a makeup base.
So-So (Probably during the Summer)
