Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum - A review & Swatches

Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum - 52 : Vanilla

I bought Bourjois Healthy mix serum a while back now, I think I used it once, put it the draw and forgot about it. My usual foundation of choice, and has been for about two years now is MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, which is a heavy formulation with high coverage and I felt my skin needed a break. Something lighter and more breathable to give my skin a break and Bourjois Healthy Mix serum was just the ticket.

Bourjois healthy mix serum is a gel foundation containing vitamin fruit extracts promising 16 hour wear time. The product is a very light gel formulation which blends into the skin so smoothly. I've found that I need have the amount of product that I use with my normal foundation to cover my entire face. Coverage is light to medium, so in certain problem areas , it's possible you would need focus the product a bit heavier to achieve adequet coverage. I love how this foundation looks on my skin, it evens skin tone perfectly for me and the semi-matte finish, leaves a little bit of a dewy glow to the skin, making my complexion look brighter and healthier. It smells lovely too! 

Healthy Mix serum is aimed at skin that needs hydrating and a natural pick me up. This is achieved through the 'vitamin-rich fruit therapy' contense which is designed to aid a radient ,even , revived complexion with instant anti-fatigue effect. Now I am a big skeptic when products claim all these fancy ingredients help your skin. To me a foundation is a foundation, I'll rely on skin products for the rest. But I'm happy to say I'm wrong in this instant! Bourjois healty mix serum has actually impressed me, my skin feels so much healthier and looks it too, I even think it's helped clear up some of my blemishes!  

Due to the semi-matte finish - I have found that it can leave my skin looking a little more oily than usual. But nothing that a bit of extra powder doesn't fix. I'm using my beloved Rimmel Stay Matte powder in shade 001 Transparent. This also help it to stay put all day, not quite the 16 hours as promised on the bottle, but it's pretty good.

Overall, I really love this foundation, its a lovely change to heavy coverage, a bit a break for my skin. I think this will be a great summer foundation and I will definitely be buying this again when it runs out! Below is a picture of the overall look using this foundation.
