This has been a favourite foundation of mine for ages now & I always make sure I have a bottle in my stash. I have the shade Vanille & its a really good match for me, I think they have reformulated since I last purchased it & changed the packaging slightly too. This foundation always blends really well and sits lovely on my skin. It gives me a medium coverage and I love the silky finish it gives my skin. Its an affordable foundation and one I reach for when I want a base that I can rely on, it never feels heavy or greasy.
I wear a lot of BB creams, they tend to be quite low coverage but this Bioderma one gives more coverage than the average BB cream. I like to use this when my skin is looking red and a little stressed, this BB Cream is a skincare and make-up hybrid and specifically to combat redness. I love the coverage and the radiant finish, it contains SPF 30 so your skin has a little more protection from the suns harmful UVA & UVB rays. A cocktail active ingredients reduce inflammation, anti-irritant allantoin and canola immediately soothe, and glycerin promotes hydration.
This is a lovely CC Cream, its great at evening out skin tone and still letting your freckles show through. This glides on the skin, blends beautifully and adds a much needed luminosity to my complexion. If you want glowing, healthy but still quite a natural base then this Glo & Ray offering is very good value for money. Its a particularly lovely base for the warmer months, as it lets your skin breath and never feels heavy.
This is a skin correcting base which contains three colour correcting pigments – Apricot for anti-fatigue, Green for anti-redness, White for anti-dark spots. I do have redness across my cheeks and this does a good job at reducing that and evening out my skintone. It feels nice on the skin & never goes greasy over the course of the day. I reach for this during the day, when I want a lightweight, natural coverage just to perk my skin up.
I love this product but HATE the packaging, this formula is quite watery and if you knock the bottle over you better believe me it will go EVERYWHERE! I wish it had a pump. If you take time to blend this is it will give you the most beautiful flawless finish. The longer I wear this throughout the day the better is seems to look on my skin.
I use this mineral foundation in two ways, if I want a lovely lightweight quite flawless foundation I will reach for this but I also like to layer this on top of a liquid foundation for more coverage and a smooth soft focus finish. This mineral foundation is very fine and easy to wear, it has SPF15 and is a great base to wear as the weather gets warmer – as it never looks greasy or heavy on the skin. I use this almost daily, as I said either alone or as a finishing powder and I still have so much product left. A pot will last you ages! I have to say I wouldn’t travel with this because its just a powder explosion waiting to happen, but thats the only negative.
This Complexion Rescue feels like you have nothing on your skin but makes you look like you have healthy, radiant skin. I hear some people say they like to apply this with their fingers but I think I get a better finish when I use my beauty sponge. This has a cocktail of skincare benefits including,
- Olive derived squalane – nourishing, hydrating and boosts the skins ability to regenerate
- Marine botanicals – help refuel thirsty skin and enhance skins appearance
- Water loving humectants,Tehalsose and glycerine- which locks in moisture
- Heart leaf globe daisy – an antioxidant, defends skin from from environmental aggressors
- Calcium and Magnesium – help replenish the skin and promote the skins moisture balance
- SPF30 PA+++ this also contains a broad spectrum SPF to protect the skin against UVA & UVB rays
So it truly is makeup with added skincare, its one of my favourite ever makeup bases and I highly recommend giving it a go if you like a natural, light – medium coverage.
This is quite a hydrating foundation and this is the one I reach for when my skin is dry and I need a good amount of coverage. A little product goes a long way and I like to use a beauty blender to get an even flawless finish. I like the luminous finish this gives, I find that I do have to powder through my t zone otherwise I will look shinny by the end of the day.
As you can see I am very much a drugstore foundation kind of girl. I think you get get incredible quality bases on the high street and they perform as well as more expensive alternatives. What foundations do you have on the go right now & let me know if you have any recomendations.
