Maison Chanel’s Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation makes a welcome addition to the range of Les Beiges foundations. Let’s just say it is Chanel’s take on the perfect tinted moisturiser − with moisture being the operative word.
This lightweight formula is fast absorbing, but leaves the skin with a refreshed, dewy and lustrous appearance, perhaps because it is packed with hyaluronic acid derivatives, enabling it to retain the skin’s natural moisture. The formula boasts 56% water, and is enriched with hyaluronic acid to ensure 8 hour long hydration. It’s definitely one for the dry skinned gals out there, you’ll get a sheer glossy coverage that covers up some general redness and discoloration. The medium coverage, gently scented gel allows the complexion to peep through, giving a smooth, even finish that can be touched up and perfected, without looking streaky, but doesn’t do much to hide blemishes or scarring.
It also contains SPF 25 and Kalanchoe extract, an active botanical ingredient with protective properties, which makes it perfect for using during the summer months. It is also available in a range of 9 skin tones.
It’s all housed in expectedly gorgeous refillable packaging complete with applicator sponge and mirror. Like most cushions this is plastic, but it doesn’t feel cheap nor is it too hefty that it’ll take up precious real-estate in your purse. The mirror is of superior quality and is very easy to apply makeup with. There’s the usual cushion puff that lays over the plastic closure of the product. To access you just pop it up to reveal the cushion. It can be popped into your makeup bag for touching up, ensuring a flawless look throughout the day.
How to use:
Press the sponge into the fine fabric screen to neatly dispense the perfect dose, then gently pat onto the skin. Or with the special Healthy Glow Gel Touch Foundation brush, work always from the inside, to the outside…
