This foundation has been a beauty bloggers favourite drugstore find since its initial launch back in 2010, since then Bourjois have been constantly working to improve their formula.
Fast forwards to 2017 and the formula is better than ever, if you are looking for a skin nourishing, radiant, glowy finish then please read on….
First - they have changed the packaging from a cylinder round bottle to a rectangular bottle with a pump feature – meaning it is very easy to pump out! As the foundation is slightly runny it means that if the pump is no longer picking up product you can unscrew the lid and pour the remains from the bottle.
Taking all of the benefits from the original Healthy mix foundation it is still very light and radiant; Bourjois have simply added a few skin loving benefits. The combination of Vitamins C, E and B5 all work together to provide you with a silky finish whilst also caring for your skin.
With a light to medium coverage this foundation will leave you with a natural skin-like finish but still manages to cover blemishes, pigmentation and eye circles. If you want a little added coverage but don’t want your foundation to cake around your nose/problem areas then this is the foundation for you. The runny texture means that you can build up coverage easily and a little goes a long way.
The foundation claims to give a hydrating and natural finish for up to 16 hours, (I’m not sure if this is true of any foundation though), most foundations last 8-10 hours and this one is no different. If you are out day to night and want continuous coverage just bring the concealer (will discuss later) with you or a slight touch up of powder and you will be good to go.
This all in one foundation protects, give coverage and moisturisers your skin in one easy step!
-SideNote: For anyone who has oily skin and assumes this foundation won’t work for you, I have a very oily t-zone and this foundation made me look glowy but not oily, as stated previously; simply bring a little powder for a top up and this foundation will keep your skin looking radiant!
Moving on to the concealer… The packaging is very cute and small enough to fit into your handbag; the applicator makes it extremely easy to apply and allows the product to glide onto the skin.
This concealer comes in Light, Medium and Dark shades (limited but the shades are very accommodating). After trying the ‘light’ shade for concealing under my eyes, bridge of the nose and chin I can say that it has a lovely coverage, is very easily blended and was the perfect shade for illuminating under the eyes. I would also say that if you set this concealer with a little bit of powder it doesn’t crease and cake around any fine lines/bags or wrinkles.
The ‘anti-fatigue’ component means it is great for neutralising any unwanted pigmentation and will leave you looking fresh faced. Eye circles – be gone!
So if you want glowy Hollywood skin (who doesn’t?) head to your local Gordons Chemists and give this beautiful range a try!
