Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation Review...

Ok so I caved in. Some of you may have read that I have been umming and arring over this foundation for ages now. So when I saw it in Tesco on offer the other day, I grabbed it. And it really didn't disappoint.

What do Bourjois say?

'Get 70% more radiance for up to 16hours. A flawless, luminous complexion for up to 16hrs. Fruit therapy for radiant boosted skin. Anti-dull complexion range'

So the thinking behind this foundation is the 'fruit therapy' behind it. They say that the ingredients include apricot for radiance, melon for hydration, apple as an antioxidant and ginger for energy.

So those of you that I have read my blog for a while will understand how important the smell of a product is to me. This smells Ah-Mazing-Ing. Its a really fruity smell in the bottle, but not so strong that you get a whiff of it all day.

The foundation itself is really really lovely. It feels quite light weight on the skin, blends really easily, and leaves a lovely dewy finish. It reminds me a lot of my favourite foundation, Maybelline Satin Finish, but I would say that the Maybelline has more of a fuller coverage, but this doesn't particularly make it better or worse for me.

The only thing I would say, which was the only reason why I haven't bought the Healthy Mix before now, is that I found all the shades were slightly too yellow for me. The Maybelline Satin Finish is the perfect colour for me, and I just didn't find this in the Bourjois range. I'm not sure whether this is the same for all of the foundation that Bourjois do, as I haven't used any others.

On the whole this is a great foundation, and one that I will definitely be using when I want more of a sheer foundation, especially through these summer months. The colour is not so yellow that I look silly, but it isn't as good a match as the Maybelline Satin Finish. Having said that, it would say that the Bourjois probably blends better than the Satin Finish, and the smell is definitely a winner for me.

The usual price for this is £9.99, but I think the offers is still on in Tesco Stores for £6.99.

Lots of Love
