I bught this product because I needed a bit of coverage for any family events, otherwise I had stopped wearing foundation for over a year. Every foundation I had tried before no matter how good it claimed to be for my acne prone and combination skin, would irritate my face, leave me very very oily and always felt like a mask on my face. So one of the main reasons I bought the healthy mix was because I wanted a light weight coverage that didn't feel like a mask!

Its honestly been a god send not only for days when i've had events or occasions, but has become part of my daily routine. Its very light weight, has the light to medium coverage that is build-able without looking cakey, and very easy to apply with a sponge i've noticed or fingers. It does however make my face oily over the duration of the day but nowhere near as fast as all the other foundations i've tried and its nothing oil blotting sheets an powder can't fix.

I wasn't too sure about the packaging, its in a glass bottle and I was afraid i'd smash it easily the amount of times i've dropped it, however it hasn't broken or cracked and seems pretty strong. The pump I had difficulties with when getting the right amount of foundation out at first but after a while the pump loosens a bit and you can squeeze out the desired amount of foundation.

I never thought a foundation would make it back into my daily routine, so I would honestly recommend this to anyone struggling to find a foundation that doesn't feel like a mask, doesn't irritate acne prone skin and needs a quick solution to get a natural finish.

I just replaced my old foundation with this and wow I was so pleasantly surprised! For the very reasonable price this foundation is incredible! It works for me so much better than the old BENEFIT one I was using which is more than double the price!! My partner and mum have both noticed how clear and glowing my skin looks with this.
It sits well on my skin, dousnt cake, covers any little spots I get and evens my skin tone! It leaves my skin feeling silky and lovely and gives really good coverage in my opinion. Will definitely buy this again as it perfect everyday makeup and simply one of the best foundations I have found for my skin (I'm very pale using shade 51 and it dousnt go orangey or look too dark like many foundations do)

This foundation is good for everyday, and it has a light to medium coverage.

However, I do have combination skin, and I find that even after I prime my T-zone with benefit porefessional, it still gets oily pretty early on in the day.

I'd personally use this for the days I don't need to wear foundation all day and only for 2-4 hours!

It has a rather strong fruity scent which I personally don't mind (as long as the foundation doesn't smell like nasty paint I'm good lol)

I have the shade 53 and I'm NC30.

I'd like to start of by saying that I found this foundation to be better than a lot of the high end foundation I've tried.

I like the texture and how it feels on my face. It just sits nicely on my skin. The coverage is really great to ( can be buildable but I consider it medium coverage) it covers most of the spots on my face and evens my skin tone. This is one of the few foundations that doesn't cake on my skin, but leaves a hydrating glow.

I'm Nc20 and I purchased shade 52 which I think is perfect for Nc20. If you are on the pale side of Nc20 or are Nc15 then I'd go with shade 51. 51 is what I'd use during the winter.

It has a fruity scent.

I have pretty dry skin and I have to say, oddly enough, I found the Healthy Mix foundation is more hydrating on me then the serum version. The Healthy Mix Foundation also has much better coverage.

I have used many foundation,but it's the first time I found a shade that is exactly the same with my skin...I bought 53 shade and when I put it on it becomes one with my skin.It has medium coverage, but it's buildable.The only drawback is that it doesn't stay for many hours,and if you live in a country with warm summers(I live in Greece) it's getting worse.But it's perfect for winter months because it is very moisturizing.The price is also very good,I bought it from feelunique for about 13-14 euros.

If you're lurking around the drugstore looking for a daily foundation, look no further, because this is it!

I was a non-foundation girl but this foundation converted me! I can go 7-8 hours without blotting and I live in a humid country (although I do get oily, it's bearable). Best part about this foundation and most important for me, is that the wear is extremely comfortable. You do not get the thick icky uncomfortable feeling and it feels light and airy! Also, major plus is that it did not break me out and considering I have super sensitive skin, it's great! Not to mention, this foundation is super friendly to the pocket ;)

It has an apricot scent to it, which doesn't bother me, but if you girls are not into that, the smell can be pretty strong and in your face.

If I had to say something bad about it, it's that the colour range is pretty limited so people may not have the easiest time finding the right shade.

Have already recommended this to many friends and will definitely repurchase.

If you guys aren't convinced yet, do check out my video review on this foundation where I do regular check ins throughout the day to show you how this wears! -->

This foundation is soooooooo good, I've been using it for over a month day and it is so good, it sits lightly on ur skin and it doesn't cause any spots or block ur pores.

Plus it also smells amazing as well, I also recommend the powder, together its like a oil barrier

LOVE IT SO MUCH

I'm in shade 52. I've been using this foundation for a couple of months now. It's hard to find a light shade without a pink undertone and I'm so glad that this one has a yellow undertone! I apply it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush or Miracle Complexion Sponge. I noticed that if you apply it with the brush you get more coverage.
This is the first foundation that doesn't look cakey around the nose. it gives you a little bit of a healthy glow. + it smells really good for a foundation. Can' t think about any cons! I will deff buy it again if I run out of mine ( 3 in stock tho)

I've been using this foundation for about six months now and it's been decent.

- Great price ($20 AUD from ASOS)
- Shade 51 is a close match for my skin (about NC10-15).
- I notice some fading during the day but it's not too bad.
- Medium coverage (still need concealer for red blemishes)
- Satin finish on my dry skin - which isn't terrible, but I prefer a dewier look and will continue to search for a foundation that gives me those results

My one gripe is that not even this foundation has managed to avoid clinging to dry patches!
It's not at all bad - the 'clinging' is minor compared to others, but it makes the foundation a lot more evident.
This is one of the main reasons I would avoid repurchasing - I may try the serum version next.

Still, I can't complain - price is great, does the job, good colour match.
