One of my aims for 2017 is to adopt a healthier routine and to really make the most of my mornings; that means no more sugary cereal, while plumped in front of the T.V. watching re-runs of shows I've seen at least twice before. I also want to make time for me, be it making a delicious breakfast juice(recipe at end of post) or sitting down and really appreciating my beauty products - rather than haphazardly slapping on some powder and lipstick via the morning commute. I find setting my alarm a little earlier, going for a brisk walk and generally enjoying the tranquillity before rush hour sets in, gears me up for the rest of the day - putting a little pep in my step and a rosy flush on my cheeks. If you are all about naturally glowing skin - and who isn't - then may I suggest the new and improved Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Concealer line?
Much like the original Bourjois Healthy Mix, the new and improved formulation features a lightweight texture that aglides and melts onto the skin (regardless of how you may apply it) providing a comfortable, transfer resistant experience for up to 16 hours. What sets Healthy Mix aside from other foundations is that not only does it deliver a glowing, radiant finish with a moderate level of coverage (I find this more than sufficient to cover my hyper pigmentation left behind from acne - image below) but it is loaded with skin boosting and protecting vitamins such as: Apricot to promote additional radiance, Melon for skin quenching hydration that lasts up to 8 hours and Apple (a known anti-oxidant) to protect the skin. Think of Bourjois Healthy Mix as the all-in-one foundation: it protects, covers and moisturises in one quick step and comes in no less than 9 shades.
That glow that you can't quite put your finger on when wearing Bourjois Healthy Mix and the real reason no other foundation nor concealer you own, can quite come as close? Bourjois have infused their fan favourite formulation with crystalline pigments that help to even out the complexion, all the while letting in the natural light for that healthy looking glow.
In my opinion there is no better concealer that disguises a late night or two, nor generally leaves you feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed than the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer. Again this too has underwent a make-over, with a new and easier to use doe foot applicator; this truly makes application a breeze wither it is concealing dark circles, a blemish or even using it to highlight. Much like the foundation of the same name, Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer is jam packed with natural and skin boosting vitamins: Apricot from additional radiance, Raspberry to boost micro-circulation for plumper skin and lastly Melon for additional hydration. This is one of the very few concealers that will not only brighten even the darkest of circles and tell signs of a sleepless night but also plump, moisturise and protect the delicate skin around the eyes.
I know that we are often pushed for time, so for your convenience I have swatched all 9 shades of the Healthy Mix Foundation below and all three of the new concealers too. I am currently wearing the shade Light Beige in foundation and the lightest concealer. If you have used Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in the past, the good news is that despite the formulation improvements, the shade names have remained the same with the addition of three new options: 50 Rose Ivory, 57 Bronze and 58 Caramel, so finding your perfect fit has never been easier.
