I’ve been using Bourjois Healthy Mix for around two months now and I’ve got to say, for a drug store foundation this one is fairly commendable. I’ve got this in the shade 53 and to say I tried and tested it on my skin without any help (because they don’t offer it) I think I got a fairly decent match. The two things I like most about this foundation is that one, it isn’t heavy. You can apply and achieve a light coverage if you wish, apt for these humid summer days but you can easily layer it up for more of a medium coverage. I also love how it smells! The fruity added ‘therapy’ really adds to it and it is SO much nicer than the chemically offending whiff you get from some foundations! It also makes my brushes smell pretty good too.
It doesn’t combat shine very well, which I suppose is because it’s meant to give off that healthy, dewy look, but because my skin is oily I definitely can’t achieve that without looking like I’m having a hot sweat. I do powder with this one, but for many this is part of routine anyway. The best thing however is that it doesn’t break me out. My skin doesn’t agree with anything, from moisturisers to blushers, I really do struggle to find products that I can wear day to day without unearthing the beasts, so this for me is a breakthrough!
I would say the lasting power is fairly average; I can get through an 8 hour shift but I do need the odd touch up as it eventually disappears from places like my temples and chin? Overall I like it and would recommend it but I would be cautious if you have oily skin like me and aren’t willing to deal with shine!
What are your thoughts on this foundation? Have you tried it?
