Have you ever considered the type of liquid foundation you will pick up when going to a night party? During the day, moisturizer-cum-foundations are available with some amount of SPF agent in them. The SPF elements actually block ultra-violet rays. But in doing so, they bring a little shine on the face. During the night, a shiny face, with the SPF-aided foundation, will immediately reveal that a retouch has been done. Why unnecessarily make a mess in your face? The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation ensures that users get a toned, supple, hydrated, and glowing skin. Find out if it actually works for you.

Packaging of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

A cylindrical glass bottle with a bright red cap is easily noticeable from far. There are 6 shades of this unique Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation that are sold in 30ml bottles. The glass body reveals the shade of the foundation. Make sure, the lid is closed no sooner the foundation has been pumped out. This will keep the product from getting contaminated by atmospheric moisture.
The dispenser is a short plastic pump that can be effortlessly used to get the foundation pop out of the container. For a normal face, 2-3 pumps are usually needed for a medium coverage. The pump can be unscrewed as well. It is often done to bring out the last drop of the foundation.

The foundation is quite watery with a gel type consistency. As the name suggests, it has serum-type element in it. The product is more like a flesh colored serum gel which tends to flow on the skin. Once put on the face, the gel takes a little time to dry up. This option allows the user to work on the face, especially in areas which have blemishes. There is no shiny effect in the skin. The treated face gets a matte finish. However, it does not look dull. The serum-cum-foundation is taken either on the palm or put on a palette. A facial brush can be used to evenly spread out the foundation. Care must be taken to put the amount on dark spots on the face for better concealing.

There is a fruity smell in the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation. However, the pleasant whiff soon vanishes after some time when applied on the face. The smell is mainly that of lychee. As the application is a type of a fruit therapy, hence the aroma is fruitier than the usual chemical types that are present in other foundations.


Once applied, a cooling effect is felt. The skin becomes buoyant and supple. It looks moisturized. The foundation serum has hydrating powers which bring freshness in the skin. It removes the aging skin properties and fatigue.

Roughness in the skin, acne marks, or reddishness disappears. The fine lines even out and the skin looks toned. After few minutes the skin becomes radiant and starts to glow. The face becomes natural with less or no blemishes.

The foundation does not become cakey or thick like a mask. It gets absorbed and works deep in the skin cells. It allows the skin to glow and the radiance stays for 16 hours or more. In other words it is a successful sheer foundation that simply glides over the skin without revealing that a foundation has been put on. The coverage is medium and buildable. The watery texture of the foundation makes the finish more natural than oily or greasy. After weeks of using this product, the skin becomes cleaner and brighter. The complexion becomes better by more than 50 percent. The skin looks rested and radiant. As a result, aging and fatigue look goes away.

The foundation and serum mixed product has various extracts of fruit juice and vitamins. There are anti-oxidants and toning elements that help to brighten up the skin and make it radiant. It also allows the skin to release its own moisture – so that it becomes supple and soft. There are extracts of fruits, such as litchi, pomegranate, and goji berries. There are potassium, sorbate, and sorbic acid along with extracts of Silica, Lycium Barbarum, Punica Granatum, and Pantolactone. There are also traces of Ultramarines, mica, iron oxides, and titanium dioxide.

There are no allergic substances in the product. On the contrary, there are elements which bring calmness to the skin. The product elements have been tested and clinically approved. As there are no comedogenic substances, the foundation does not make the skin reactive. The skin pores remain open and do not clog.
