Review: Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation

Happy New Year everyone!

My first review of 2015 will be the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.


I bought this in mid December as an alternative foundation for minimal makeup days. Here’s what I think of it.
What it promises: Radiant and flawless complexion for up to 16 hours! Bourjois’ Healthy Mix foundation is enriched with a fruit therapy formula to enhance your complexion.” — Boots UK

Smells incredible

The first thing you will notice about this foundation is it smells amazing. Personally I think it smells like children’s suncream, a sort of mildly fruity scent that takes me back to past summer holidays. Absolutely love this.

Good low coverage

I’m not sure about flawless complexion, but I can certainly agree that this foundation gives a nice, low coverage finish that is very light to wear. Very “my skin but better”.

Not longwearing

Sorry Bourjois, this foundation does not last for 16 hours. It can last decently maybe for 8 hours maximum, but definitely does not stay in place and provide full coverage for any where near what it promises.

Hydrating – hooray for the healthy mix!

Bourjois breaks down the ‘healthy mix’ of fruits for us – apricot for radiance, melon for hydration and apple for young looking skin. At 20 years old, I can’t say I really notice whether this product makes my skin look younger, but it is certainly hydrating and makes my skin look radiant.

Overall: 3.5/5
Repurchase: Maybe
Shade used: Light Vanilla
Price: £9.99, Boots UK

Hope you liked the review guys. Let me know what new products you have tried. What did you think of Bourjois Healthy Mix?

    1. Thanls ieyra! I’ll definitely get around to checking out your review. Haven’t experienced the oxidising myself, but what you might want to try is an antioxidant-enriched cleanser or moisturiser and that will work to try and prevent it from oxidising xx
