I was in the market for a new foundation without silicones (see on the label: dimethicone) as this ingredient makes me break out. I was also looking for one with SPF also but settled on buying the Antipodes Immortal Moisturiser with factor 15 from our previous post, to use in conjunction with my foundation.
When we were in New York last summer, Juice Beauty was getting big, with thanks of course to fan and contributor Gwynnie but also because in credit to them, they are working the high performance-science-but-natural skincare and makeup sectors. I’ve been using natural foundations for over three years and there haven’t been many that have been successful in a second purchase. The only other is UNE but then they ceased to be stocked in the UK and it just became too much of a ball-ache to order from France.
So I tried out Juice Beauty’s Phyto-Pigments Foundation at Content and immediately went to the tills. It’s lush. Glides on easy, I matched my shade perfectly, it lasts and you can build up coverage. It’s rich in resveratrol-rich grapeseed and fruit stem cells, which help promote quick cell turnover and youthful glowy skin. It comes in 10 shades from the very light (me) to the very tanned (never me). And rather than padding it out with water, it’s based with Aloe Vera Juice and Safflower Oil, so a big thumbs up from here. I’ll be putting this on the repeat for sure.
