Last year my resolution was to gradually sort out my skin care and make up routine which has been going well. I've cracked the art of eye make up and sorted out my skin care (suffer from awful dry skin) to get my face looking the best it has in years. The one thing I'm yet to crack though is foundation and after using the last of my current bottle today I need to go out and buy some tomorrow. I was wanting to get an expensive one once this bottle had run out but money is tight at the minute so I'm going to have to make do with a budget one for now (anything up to £15). I have been using Bourgeois healthy mix which has been doing an ok job but still leaves flaky patches (my skin is still quite dry, but I suffer from eczema so is the best it will get) and would buy it again if there are no better recommendations. So if you have dry skin which foundation do you find is best that I can get for under £15?
I have eczema, not generally on my face though, plus excessively dry skin. I'm currently getting on with garnier bb cream quite well. Tech ically about £10 but often on offer at a few pounds less.
It moisturises and goes on nicely but its not a thick cover its a light smoothing finish. I spoke to a Clarins consultant (they're doing a rather decent sized 10 day free foundation sample at present) and she suggested using a powder to fix the bb cream. I intend to try the Aldi one I used to get at about £3.
human at the minute I'm using: Superdrug vitamin E hot cloth cleanser Palmers skin therapy face oil Nip and fab extreme face pads Neutrogena hydro boost gel Nivea creme patted on (not rubbed in) every other night.
