Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation Review

So it's 3 for 2 across all cosmetics in Boots!! Uh-oh! Bye pay cheque! One of my purchases was this foundation that I have been intrigued by and have seen many a blog post about....

This is a gel foundation which promises to give a "flawless complexion and undetectable coverage". I am going to be honest in my review as always and I'm afraid my verdict is a negative one (unlike most blog reviews I have read).

For me, the coverage wasn't very good, and I found it mostly wore off on my commute to work (albeit it's harsh weather conditions at the minute I still think this foundation falls short especially as it promises to stay on for 16 hours!). As the day progressed the coverage became patchy and quite oily in texture.

I think this foundation is definitely more suited to dryer skin, as I think the gel/serum base just enhances the pre-existing moisture in the skin.

What are your thoughts on this foundation? I'd love to know your thoughts!


  1. I am dying to try this as I feel like it might be perfect for my horrible dry skin :D xx

    1. I do think it'd be better suited to dry skin!! definitely not mine x

  2. I don't have the serum. I have the original and I love it!
