Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation Review

During the colder months, I get some really dry patches on my cheeks, which  tend to look even worse when I apply foundation. I’ve been using Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua for more than a year now, but it unfortunately just doesn’t work for me right now, so I’ve asked girls on twitter which foundation do they think would work best for my dry skin. Most girls sugested me the Bourjous Healthy Mix foundation and all I can say is THANK YOU! All of the drugstore foundations I’ve tried before were rubbish, so my expectations weren’t too high, but holy crap! This foundation is awesome!

The best thing about it is that it doesn’t cling to my dry patches, of course. But this is not everything. It also beautifully evens out my skin, gives it a healthy glow and blends perfectly. It’s not even noticable that you’re wearing it. Even my hair stylist said the other day that my skin looked gorgeous and I don’t think she was aware of me having foundation on, haha. Anyway, I would say the foundation gives you medium coverage without looking cakey and stays on throughout the whole day. Oh, and the bottle also has a pump and therefore makes the application mess-free. Overall, I think this foundation is perfect for dry skin. I would definitely recommend it to you, as it’s great value for money!

P.S. In case anyone’s wondering, I have it in the shade 52 Vanilla, which works really well for my skin with a slight yellow undertone. You can see how it looks on me in my latest ‘outfit of the day’ post.

    Agreed, I've been using this one in Vanilla 52 for over a year now and could not be happier with it! I've used up two bottles by now and will keep repurchasing, in my opinion this is by far the best drug store fundation out there!

    Super recenzija. Če kaj sovražim kupovati, so to pudri, ker so mi ti v drogerijah vedno vsi pretemni. Kaj morem, če sem tako bleda. A ta odtenek, ki ga imaš ti, je zelo svetel, obstaja še svetlejši? V te tone barvne kože se ne razumem najboljše, ampak se mi zdi, da sem jaz tudi rumena, tako da bi mi verjetno potem pasal, če paše tudi tebi. 🙂

      So se svetlejsi odtenki. Najmanj eden. 😀 Jaz nimam najbolj svetle koze, tako da ce si zelo bleda, bi ti priporocala svetlejsi odtenek.

    I really like healthy mix and I love the serum version of it too. I sometimes mix them together as I am somewhere between 52 and 53

    Chanelov puder ti verjetno ne ustreza, ker ima veliko alkohola.

    Sem takoj pokukala na tvoj blog 🙂 Pohvale! In ja, tale podlaga je ena boljših na trgu. Se komot primerja s podlagami višjega cenovnega razreda. Tudi sama ga imam skoraj vedno na omarici. Včasih malo zamenjam, se pa kar redno vračam nazaj. Top je, res! Jaz ga imam v odtenku 53 Light Beige.
