Foundation help!

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a cheap-ish foundation. I had been using no7 but I'm not a huge lover of it.

I need something medium coverage, only problem is my skin is very, very dry (have eczema on my face although mostly under control) so no idea what to try and looking for suggestions.

Thanks in advance x

Have a look at Bourjoirs Heathy Mix foundation.

I bought some (also suffer from eczema) when I was traveling with work and forgot my usual brand and didn't want to spend a fortune on a replacement for a couple of days. I'd remembered that Lisa Eldridge had said it was good on one of her YouTube videos.

I wasn't expecting much tbh but it's really good quality - didn't cake or oxidise and importantly didn't dry out my skin.

I still use my favourite brands out of preference but I keep this one in my "travel" make up bag and in terms of value and performance I think it's really good.

Thank you! Will have a look at that. Nothing worse than something that ends up with your skin looking flakey!!! Not the look we're going for!

I also use Bobby Brown Serum foundation - it's again good for dry skin but a lot more expensive.

Healthy Mix is very similar in texture and tbh there's not a lot to choose between them imho.

Bourjois Healthy Mix in the dry skin version or L'Oréal True Match.
