Healthy Mix New Formula Foundation.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation £9.99 (New Formula)

Being a huge fan of the Healthy Mix Serum, when I heard Bourjois were introducing a new formula of the 'normal' foundation, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Luckily, I ran out of my Healthy Mix Serum last week, so practically ran to Boots to pick up this. 

I'd only ever tried the serum, which I think is really suited to oily/combo skin if you're after a medium coverage that is really light weight. I kind of expected the 'actual' foundation to feel a lot heavier but I was pleasantly surprised. This feels just as light as the serum foundation but feels much less oily on my skin. I didn't actually realise the serum was 'oily' as such until I actually tried this. My skin is now normal/dry combination and this formula seems to work better for me that the actual serum.

Coverage wise, I would say medium to full and certainly buildable. I actually prefer this formulation to the serum, which I didn't expect as I thought the serum was going to be my 'forever' foundation - when in fact I think this will be. This is also, for some reason £1 cheaper than the serum. I much prefer the bottle this comes in too, the serum doesn't look as pretty on my dressing table as this one does!

 I love how fresh faced I look after applying this and the coverage is amazing literally ALL day. If you're wanting a dewy finish, I would still recommend this foundation but just hold off the powder, I prefer a more matte finish so I use a pressed powder to set my foundation for the day. I would recommend this foundation 100%, especially if you are after something a little lighter as we move into Spring!

Have you tried the new formula?

  1. I was in Boots today trying to decide whether to buy this or not and after reading this post I'm definitely going to pick it up when I'm next in there! :)

  2. I tried the old formula and it was to watery for me. Might give this one a go though

  7. Great review! I just picked this foundation up today as can't wait to use it tomorrow :) I never tried the serum but I'm hoping I get on well with this xx

  8. I was trying to decide whether I should be going for this or the serum as I wasn't sure which skin types they suited, so thanks for clearing that up! Going to have to grab this at the weekend as I'm bored of mine!

  9. I freakin' love this foundation.. I have the normal foundation and also the serum and love both! It's so light when applied.. :)

  10. I wasn't a fan of the old formula so I might give this one a go considering so many people swear by healthy mix!xx

  11. Great review! I always go to buy this but then decide against it, I guess it is just so hard to get your perfect match but I must buy this soon.

  12. Hello,
    Thank you for your review about the Healthy Mix new foundation. I bought it a couple weeks ago ( shade 51 vanilla) and I'm really fond of it. I'm amazing, I liked my Deam mat mousse (Gemey Maybelline) but this one is a very good foundation for my oily but sensible skin.
    Greetings from France.
