Hi Everyone,

Its Lauren from Lauren Loves taking over today. Last week I was sent the Boujois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation for review – as a fan of the original Healthy Mix foundation I was quite excited to try this. I am reviewing no 52 – Vanilla.


Packaging says: Gel Foundation – 16 hours radiance-boosting. Even, revived complexion. Instant blending gel, flawless complexious, undetectible coverage. Vitamin-rich fruits lychee, goji berries, pomegranate. Hypoallergenic.

The packaging is nice – a basic glass jar with a pump applicator which dispenses enough for me in 1 pump and maintains a clean product.
Firstly, this isn’t a gel in the sense that it’s like a shower gel. It behaves much like any other foundation but is a little more “together” in consistency like a gel I suppose.

The foundation itself is easy to spread and blend as it doesn’t dry out instantly like a more traditional cream foundation. I always apply foundation with a brush but this is easy to apply with fingers, a brush or sponge I’ve found. It smells delicious – really fruity (not good for those who aren’t a fan of fruity smells though!) It’s also very light on the skin and doesn’t appear oily at all.

Importantly, here’s the before and after:

Left: no makeup at all; Right: Healthy Mix Foundation only.

Apologies for the rollers – I was making my hair massive.

As you can see it gives a good coverage for red areas of the skin and really picks skin up so it seems to glow but gives a natural coverage so it doesn’t look caked on (I hate obvious foundation). It also has great staying power – it’s quite matt and stays matt for 8 hours – it looks fresh at the end of the working day which I was very impressed with. It also suits my pale skin tone which is a plus as most foundations make me look orange!

Packaging: 3.5/5 – nothing wow, just a normal foundation packaging
Product – 5/5 – I really love this foundation! I’ve been wearing it constantly since I got it and would definitely buy a bottle when this runs out. The lasting-power of this is fantastic and I’ve had lots of compliments on how well I look which is nice!!
