Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation || Review

Having heard so much about this foundation, this was really an impulse buy for me when i was shopping around boots for some essential toiletries as i didn't really need another foundation. I was impressed by the formulation and how easy it was to blend into the skin when i tried the product on the back of my hand in the store so i decided it was worth picking up. So after around 20 minutes swatching and finding my perfect shade, i opted for number 51 light vanilla.

I was really excited to use this product and i used the Real Techniques buffing brush to apply it onto my face. The foundation is very lightweight yet provide adequate light to medium coverage. It blended in effortlessly and i really liked the finish it gave to my skin. I am used to matte finish foundations so this really was a big change for me to have a slightly more dewy finish. The foundation matched my skintone very well and gave a very even coverage easily and i find that i did't even need a concealer to correct some of my blemishes. The smell is not too overpowering and one pump is a good indication of how much product that is needed for the whole face, although you can easily dispense less or more if you prefer. 

Overall, i am defnitely very happy with this foundation and i have found that i have been reaching for this alot more than my other foundations or BB creams that i have. I like how this foundation gave a nice natural finish that is dewy and not too matte looking, provided a healthy glow yet not too greasy. I have combination oily skin therefore i have to put a powder on top to control my sebum levels but i find that this foundation controls my oil relatively well compared with other dewy finish products. I definitely recommend this to people who likes the semi-matte finish and lightweight foundations that doesn't look or feel too cakey. Perfect for the perfect spring! Finally seeing some sunshine <3

  1. This is my favourite foundation that is on the high street, such a lovely formula. I also have shade 51 and find it to be a pretty perfect match :)

  3. This sounds great. I must admit, I used 123perfect by them and it was awful so I'm a bit apprehensive to try this one. I have heard a lot of good things about it though xx

  4. I've been hearing lots of great things about this foundation, and after I heard Lisa Eldridge recommend this now I definitely want to try it out!

  5. I keep forgetting to check out this product - well I'm not sure if it is available in Australia. It sounds good because I dislike foundations that make you look greasy instead of a healthy glowing skin.


  6. I just got this yesterday and I can't wait to try it. Recently saw it on Lisa Eldridge's video too xx

  7. I love Bourjois' foundations! I have the Healthy Mix foundation but not this gel one, and I absolutely love the scent :) I love the finish of this foundation too, definitely doesn't look caked on at all

  8. I love your reviews so much ! ^^ And I've only heard great things about the bourjois healthy mix but I really wish they had a bigger shade selection!


  9. I've been thinking to purchase this, and i think i definitely will be now :D

    great review xx

  10. I love Healthy mix serum gel foundation from Bourjois, I just bought Healthy mix to see if I would like it more because it has more coverage.


Leave a comment and i will get back to you as soon as i can :)
