Bourjois new & improved healthy mix foundation

Back in my early blogging days, over seven years ago now (crikey, this makes me feel old!), Bourjois’ Healthy Mix Foundation was the foundation that every beauty junkie was using and loving. This foundation was seriously good stuff, so much so it had potential to rival some of my high end favourite bases. It was one of the best high street foundations I have used because of its gorgeous creamy texture, lightness on the skin but good coverage, the way it brightened your complexion yet gave a very natural finish. It had everything. So imagine my shock and concern when I heard that Bourjois have reformulated this cult favourite and relaunched their beloved foundation with a new look and formula.

The product isn’t beyond recognition with its packaging and thankfully, this new relaunch has only improved what was a great foundation to begin with. Phew! The new formula feels and smells just like the original but has been energised with the addition of Vitamins C, E and B5 to help boost radiance and a healthy looking complexion. So you are getting a more glowy base but the same silky finish that sits beautifully on your skin, with no caking or drying. The coverage hasn’t been comprised, so this new version still gives you a good low to medium coverage that can easily be built up if you so wish.

The other good news is that Bourjois have added three new shades to the Healthy Mix range – 50. (now their lightness shade) and also 57. and 58 (which have rightfully extended their darker shades). The Healthy Mix Concealer has also undergone a face lift and is now packaged in a complementary red-top bottle with a doe-foot applicator that helps spread this light formula over your dark circles and any blemishes. This concealer is great and comes in three radiant shades (light, medium, dark). It brightens up the under eye area instantly and blurs any fine lines with the help of a few bounces from a beauty blender. It really does make me look awake even if I am still feeling half asleep. Thanks baby!

It is safe to say that the new Healthy Mix relaunch has successfully retained all the great qualities of this fab foundation, given our complexion a bit of an oomph and has helped me rediscover an absolute classic beauty product.

    Tganis for a great review! I absolutely adore the original foubdation, think I might need to finish that one before I’ll go ahead and purchase the new version. But couldn’t resist the newly launched concealer and already ordered it ­čśë

    I have been using this foundation lately and really do like it – although it is quite oily for me personally. I’ll keep using it until it runs out but am unsure I will buy it again. I think I need something a little less dewy! xx
