I have a review for you today. I am always in search for new foundations, and after reading and watching very good reviews about this product I decided to purchase it. I purchased it from Echemist with the added bonus of free shipping to Malta. It retails for 11.19 euro, which I think is not
that bad when compared to other foundations for example an Artdeco foundation which is 15 euro.
Before starting to use the Bourjois Foundation, I was using an Artdeco Foundation which I had been using for about two years, however lately I noticed that it was breaking me out and after taking a look at the ingredients I noticed that it contained lots of parabens and also an ingredient called oxybenzone. Oxybenzone is found in sun screen products and in fact the Artdeco foundation has SPF. Although the Oxybenzone protects the skin from the sun, it is absorbed in our system and can cause damage to cells and affect hormones. So I think that it is this ingredient that is causing my acne break outs.
The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation does not contain any SPF and upon using for the first time, I noticed quite an improvement in my skin. Its ingredients when compared with those of the Artdeco product are much better with the added benefit of having fruit ingredients. It claims to use "Fruit therapy for radiance and boosting and maintains essential skin hydration". I vouch for this product that it does what it claims. After using it for about a week and a half my skin looks healthier and my acne has dramatically decreased. It also is oil free.
It has medium coverage however it can be full coverage when built up. The down side of this product is that there is a limited range of colors to choose from.
For the packaging, its a plastic packaging so if it falls it does not break, like other foundation packaging, and it has a pump therefore the product is not wasted. Unlike other foundations, which have a plasticy kind of smell, this foundation has a really sweet and fruity smell.
Therefore, to conclude, I highly recommend this product especially for sensitive, oily and acne prone skin since this foundation takes care of your skin.
Have you used this product? What do you think of it?
