Product rave- Bourjois healthy mix foundation

After trying out various foundations over Christmas, I decided to purchase a bottle of Bourjois healthy mix and I have to thank everyone who recommended this, because it really is a great foundation!

RRP £9.99, available from Boots and Superdrug

The foundation comes in a lightweight plastic bottle with a pump, which is great for throwing into an overnight bag, or if you're prone to dropping things like me.

I would describe this as a buildable light to medium coverage semi-matte foundation, which leaves my skin looking extremely natural, but healthier and more even toned.

The light fluid does a great job of evening out my skintone, smoothing over pores and covering minor imperfections, but I still need a concealer for dark circles.

Another reason why I like this foundation is that it doesn't contain any SPF, I use a separate lotion anyway and it can make your face lighter in photos.

With a bit of powder and blotting, this lasts 10 - 12hours. I've not had any problems with it oxidizing and it feels weightless, even after a whole day's wear!

I found it quite difficult to choose a shade as 52 and 53 were very similar, but in the end 52 seemed to match my NC25 skintone that little bit better.

All in all, I'm really impressed with this foundation and I would definitely recommend it if you want a medium coverage everyday foundation that feels completely weightless on the skin!

Have you tried Bourjois healthy mix? What's your favourite everyday foundation?

  11. Do you think this would be good for toning down redness? I really like the coverage it looks natural but clean if that makes sense?

  12. Skin Scrubs- I kind of know what you mean, it certainly gives a very natural finish. It's medium coverage, so unless the area is very red, it should help to tone it down x

  14. I like this, I usually prefer the 8 hour sleep effect one as it is a little more fluid and the colour matches my pale skin better, but this is so good for more coverage without being too heavy x

  15. Sty-Lush_x - Glad you like it too, I've never tried the 8 hour sleep one but by the sounds of it, healthy mix is the better out of the two x
