Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation Review 

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation Review

If you’ve ordered The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation and think you might be in for a wait, may I recommend an excellent alternative. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation, £10.99, is a fantastic, affordable, light coverage foundation.

Tried and tested. One of my all time faves. Available on your local highstreet (or Amazon, for my non-European friends). No waiting lists here.

I do find serum foundations to be a little tricky, both this one and high end versions. They don’t love every primer. Or every brush. Nor do they layer too well and can break up if you try. But one layer, applied with fingers, sponge or (the right) brush, looks so good that I buy this one again and again.

The lighter shades are particularly good, yellow undertones not pink. Natural finish, not dewy but wonderfully radiant. Decent wear time for a lightweight base. Best for normal or dry skin types. Plastic bottle with a pump. Smells great. Apricoty

Til next time,

    Just by the name of this foundation I am sure it would work for me, the gel texture sounds lovely for dry skin. Loved your review, also glad they do some nice pale shades!
