Rated 5 out of 5 by LeicestershireLass143 Got to Love Mally
This face defender boost is brilliant. I have quite a heavy tan at the moment and this is perfect as I am using copious amount of moisturiser and face oil and this gives me a smooth none shiny look. I'm not sure how it will fair once the tan has faded as it really is quite a dark application but I will simply go back to the clear if there is a problem and pop this into a dark corner until next summer. Thanks Mally another winner for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 101Spaniels Way Too Much Colour
When I received this product, I was very surprised that the sponge was not in some way included as part of the compact. Very poor design. Is the sponge to float free in your handbag - perhaps in a poly bag!? I think not!! Definitely a bacterial issue there! More thought needs to go into redesigning a small case to take both together. As for the product itself, I stuck with it for two weeks, but have today sent it back to QVC. While I love the dewy look that is currently on trend in make-up, this for me equates to a fairly shiny skin a few hours later. Normally I just dab this with a tissue, but of course the tissue also takes off a little bit of make-up with each use. I thought I had found the answer with Mally's new Boost Face Defender, but sadly no. Mally herself said on a show that there was no transfer of colour from the compact to the skin, just a 'warmth' when using. Well, sorry, but there is DEFINITELY a transfer with each dab of the sponge. Now this may be ok for some women, but for me, having already applied my chosen make-up, I don't want the addition of a completely different colour each time I use the Pore Defender. ( I did actually try the non-coloured original version, and in common with a few other reviewers, struggled to see it doing anything at all, hence my order of the new Boost defender.) My nose, chin and forehead always become shiny later in the day, so dabbing this product on skin slightly damp with moisture is of course going to add colour, which I don't want. This is exactly what I thought would happen and I cannot understand why Mally said that it wouldn't. I found by the end of the day, my original foundation had been compromised by the addition of all these 'dabs' of a different colour, especially on cheeks which already had blusher applied - not a nice look. I really cannot see the difference between this product and just a plain, old fashioned pressed powder, which I wouldn't dream of using. Back to a tissue for me, which at least preserves the original foundation colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sassylady10 Fantastic finishing product
Like the other reviews. I swear by the original defender, and use every single day whether using foundation or not. This does everything Mally says it does. Minimises pores. Gives a fantastic finish to the skin, and great as a touch up throughout the day. I absolutely love this tinted version, it provides warmth and glow to the skin and finish is youthful. This will be another staple addition to my ever growing Mally collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by carter321 Easy application, flawless result...
I received this product as part of a TSV a few months ago and I like it a lot. Despite using Face Defender Boost almost daily, there still appears to be loads left and if anything, it lasts even longer than original face defender. It looks like a powder but is very similar to the original version in consistency. My complexion is light/medium and I've found that a light once-a-day application of Boost warms up my skin by just the right amount. No touch-ups required! I must say previously I'd resorted to blending Mally's Medium and Tan liquid foundations and still occasionally do this followed by original Face Defender but using Boost is a faster way to get a similar result. As well as warming up your complexion, it will help - just like the original - to fix your make-up. It looks great strobed over too as there's a good contrast between highlights and base colour. My new summer essential - but I suspect this will be useful year round when I feel like a healthy, natural glow. Well worth trying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by sparkybell Love this
I think this tinted version is great! I have light to medium skin and this gives a lovely warm glow. I use this with a brush which I find gives a better finish. Hope this will be a regular item now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cheekybimbo Good but too much boost for me
I haven't tried many of Mally's products but her enthusiasm for her brand convinced me this time round. I really like what this product does as a finishing touch however, it's got too much of a boost in for me so sadly I have had to return it and will try the untinted version instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spoogy Much better for my skin tone!
The original face defender looked too ashy on my afro Caribbean skin tone and I could not get along with it after trying it many times because I loved the concept. I'm so glad Mally came up with this tinted version which is much better for my skin tone. Definitely a keeper and I will purchase another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fluffles Perfect bronzer
After seeing this demonstrated by Mally on her recent TSV day, I decided to give this a try. I am sooo glad I did. Its great and does exactly what Mally says it does. It warms the skin, blots the shiny bits and also acts as a bronzer without leaving any dividing lines on the face. Perfect.
I use this with the Vacay day blusher as well. Mally, please keep making this.
