I am so thrilled about our newest launch, BFF De-Stress. It’s a tinted serum that delivers real support and defence against stress, all while providing gorgeously buildable and breathable coverage. For those of you who may want to get into the nitty gritty, we have included FAQs below. Happy de-stressing…

Yes it does contain fragrance (similar to BFF SPF 30 Cream), but there are no allergens.
How much product do you get in the tube?
You get 30ml in each tube.
Is BFF De-Stress suitable for sensitive skin?
All of our products are patch tested to ensure there is no irritancy potential. Our BFF De-Stress tinted serum has been patch tested and shows to be non-irritating. However, we do recommend customers with very sensitive skin carry out their own patch test by applying the product behind the ear or on the inner forearm at least 48 hours prior. This is to observe any potential reaction to the product.
Can I use BFF De-Stress if I have rosacea?
BFF De-Stress has low to medium buildable coverage that can be expected to cover rosacea. We would recommend discussing using BFF De-Stress with your local GP, and carrying out a patch test by applying the product behind the ear or on the inner forearm at least 48 hours prior, to observe any potential reaction to the product.
How much product should I use at one time?
You can use 1-2 pumps applying to your whole face, taking care to avoid the eye area.

Will the Match2Me be updated? How will I know my shade?
Yes it will and you can complete your Match2Me in 5 easy steps to find your perfect shade.
How does BFF De-Stress protect from daily life stress?
The NP-TriOX™ technology in our BFF De-Stress contains a triple broad-spectrum antioxidant complex. This blend has effective antioxidant activity. It will protect the skin from free-radical damage that is caused by pollution, UV radiation, blue light and environmental chemicals that all contribute to stressed-looking skin.
What is Neurophroline™?
Neurophroline™ is an active ingredient also known as Tephrosia purpurea seed extract.

What is the TriOX part of NP-TriOX™?
It is a complex formulated with a blend of 3 powerful antioxidants – oil-soluble vitamin C, plant antioxidants and vitamin E analog – designed to provide broad-spectrum antioxidant protection against external stressors such as digital HEV light, pollution, smoke and UV.
Does BFF De-Stress protect my skin from Blue Light (HEV)?
Our NP-TriOX™ technology in BFF De-Stress helps to protect against daily stresses caused by environmental chemicals, pollution and blue light by reducing cortisol in the skin and fighting free radicals that contribute to skin damage.

BFF De-Stress can be applied with fingers or with a brush – whichever you prefer.
Can you use it on top of Miracle Blur?
Yes, happily. You can use BFF De-Stress with any of our other products.
Can BFF De-Stress be used over powder products?

How should I use BFF De-Stress with Just A Touch?
After applying BFF De-Stress tinted serum onto your face while taking care to avoid the eye area, apply Just A Touch for targeted or extra coverage.
How should I use BFF De-Stress with BFF Eye?

Can this be used as an everyday product?

Does it act well as a primer?
BFF De-Stress has not been developed as a primer, it’s a serum with coverage.
Should I stop using vitamin C and serums on my face if I’m using BFF De-Stress?
