I remember the time when I decided to forget about foundations and say goodbye to powders too. Now I realize that was stupid. I can’t do without foundation today, although my skin is in good condition at the moment. To my mind, perfect and even skin tone is vital for every makeup.
A good foundation doesn’t clog pores, aggravate skin or cause blemishes. On the contrary, it protects your skin from environmental factors, which are especially dangerous in big cities
Today we are talking about one such foundation, which performs well. Please welcome Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel!
Packaging and design.
It looks awesome, doesn’t it? I love it! At first glance the bottle is made of glass, but it’s just a good quality plastic packaging.
The bottle is not very big and very convenient with its pump.
The pump is well made and doesn’t smudge. You can also variate the amount of the product with the pump. The design is nice, bright and vibrant
I have it in Vanilla. It’s quite light with a yellow undertone. Actually my skin is neither fair nor dark, it’s more like a tan skin tone.
Moreover, my skin tone is actually different when it comes to face and body. My body is a tad more brown with golden undertone than my face, which is light with a hint of pink. I don’t know why I’m telling you about it now, but the shade suits me perfectly Such a rare occasion when I can forget about applying foundation on my neck!
I love the yellow undertone that makes my face and body look balanced and natural.

✔️ Smell. It’s nice, fruity and I’d say quite potent, but it’s not in-your-face. I feel the smell only when I apply it, which is good
✔️ The texture is quite liquid, but I won’t call it a gel, it’s more like a silicone fluid. I can feel the silicone under my fingers, but I guess it’s only for the better in the case of makeup products.
✔️ It applies and distributes easy breezy! I particularly appreciate it after the thick and hard to spread out Catrice Nude Illusion Makeup. Bourjois is fabulous! It glides over my skin softly, spreading out the product instantaneously and providing a natural look.
✔️ The finish is not matte, but dewy and luminous. Girls with oily skin, don’t get scared, it looks natural and decent
✔️ My skin is more oily than normal, so I can assure you that the foundation performs well. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel doesn’t slide off or get patchy and oily.✔️ The foundation accentuated the slight peeling around my lips this winter.
✔️ It’s undetectable on my face and I hardly feel it, which is a huge plus, especially when the result is obvious.
✔️ The coverage is medium. The product disguises some little imperfections.
✔️ It evens out the skin tone, thus making it look healthy and good-looking.
✔️ The staying power is good, but I prefer setting it with a powder for a better result. I use Pupa Extreme Matt Powder Foundation for that purpose, which is good enough, but not perfect.
✔️ It doesn’t clog pores or aggravate skin.
Well, let’s see how it actually works.
Now I’ve applied the foundation. It seems too yellow in the beginning.
But see how it looks after I’ve spread it out on my skin.
Price point: $ 15
Generally speaking, I’m so excited about this foundation! I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
I started using Bourjois just recently, but got obsessed about their products already. See how Bourjois Volume Glamour mascara looks on my lashes:
