Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation: Review and Swatches


Hello my beauties… Hope you all are enjoying this cruel heat :@ i m certainly not. Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation is a staple product for every makeup enthusiast. Not to mention it is one of the best foundation for dry-normal skin. I have seen everybody loving this foundation but sadly it is not available here in India therefore I had to hunt down many websites and finally placed order from ASOS. Nowadays all international orders demands customs, therefore be prepare for an extra attachment of custom price. :-@

The texture is thick and creamy, something similar to Bourjois Healthy Mix but slightly creamier, probably because it is a gel foundation. It says: “Made from an instant anti-fatigue vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula with litchi, goji berries and pomegranates”, meant for normal to dry skin which is great for me. It is one of the best known gel foundation that voted for best natural-finish glowing foundation in drugstores. It comes in 30ml bottle with pump which is very convenient for using after all. It is best for winters, when I don’t have to think of my sweat and wear off control. The creamy and smooth formula goes on smooth and glide into skin beautifully and hence it gives immediately dewy finish.


If you ask about performance wise I have heard and saw people raving about this stuff but to be honest, it took me awhile to get on with this foundation. It didn’t sit right on my dry- dehydrated skin and emphasis dryness on my skin such as dry patches, flakiness. However, when my skin behaves well, the performance gets better. It really works great on well moisturized and smooth skin. This is certainly not for oily skin ladies and those who love matte look and would probably suit normal/dry skin a bit better. It is light to buildable coverage, even out redness and minor imperfection/blemishes. Therefore for those who like to mask up face with full bodied foundation this is not meant for you! Lastly staying powder– This is not at all 16 hours wear foundation by any mean, on my combination skin it stays right for 4 hours not more than that. I don’t use primer so I am guessing it will last more 2 hours with it. I definitely need to powder my face- mainly centre T-zone area where I am oily, other than that Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation is one of the best foundations for daily use.

What I like about Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation:

  • Packaging is lightweight, slimmer and comes with pump.
  • It is said to be a gel foundation – good for normal-dry skin.
  • Blends into skin pretty well.
  • Has light to buildable coverage. Cancel redness, and other minor imperfections.
  • Texture is thick and creamy, feels light weight on skin.
  • Has somewhat fruity kind of smell to it, I like it though.
  • It looks natural on skin and impart healthy glow.
  • It has vitamin-rich fruit ingredients that said to be good for skin.
  • No irritations, no side-effects so far.
  • No Flash back, photographs beautifully.
  • Perfect for everyday wear, it is a beautiful drugstore foundation for that instant glowing looking skin.



What I like about Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation:

  • Most important- Availability.
  • On my dry-dehydrated skin, unless it is well moisturized and free from dry patches the foundations tends to emphasis and cling on dry patches which is not visible unless up close.
  • Staying power is definitely not 16 hours- could it be 8 hours but it last on me for 4-5 hours depending on weather and heat.


Rating: 4/5

I used 3 types of foundations from this brand and love each of them. Each of them gives different finish and formula wise they are light weight on skin. I love Bourjois as a brand, the quality of each products are satisfactory!
