About giveaway Avoskin

I'm pretty disappointed that Picky just announced that the Avoskin giveaway has a net volume confusion. Hmm I see this is the fault on Avoskin's part because they spent a lot of time on this campaign, they kept promoting this giveaway but in the end I didn't receive the product as stated on the Avoskin banner

understand that youre dissapointed.. but writing this sounds unappreciative/ungrateful as youre still getting FREE products, with a full size toner and mask.. and its not only 1 product, but you get 4..

I’m sorry you didn’t get what you expected. I too will feel disappointed if the original amount advertised was not followed. However, I can forgive the brand since they issued an apology and the rest of the products were as described. 5mL sunscreen can last 4 days more or less depending on use and how big the face is. 1/4 or 1/5 tsp or 1 mL a day plus reapplications. I believe that’s enough for “testing” a sunscreen. If it makes you feel better, disclose that you received a 5mL sample. Do people really use 1/4 tsp on reapplication? I don’t. Sunscreen is still there, it doesn’t magically disappear after two hours. Some have been rubbed of, some filters have degraded, but there is still some protection left. I usually use a small amount if it’s reapplication and I’m just indoors. I will use more and reapply more frequently if I’m continually under direct heat of the sun or at the beach.

1 tsp at a time for the whole face? That’s almost 5mL! Doing the math, let’s say with 5 reapplications of half that amount, you use around 18mL a day? You must go through tons of sunscreen bottles. Where did you get the 1tsp recommendation if I may ask? I mean most dermatologists and health organizations recommend 1/4tsp/ 0.04oz for the face alone (1 oz for the whole body). This 1/4 tsp rule is according to the facial surface area of 95th percentile of men. I know everyone’s faces are of different sizes and sunscreens have different consistencies so it’s 1/4 tsp more or less. Always better to apply more than recommended though.
