I love this foundation.
It's very light and natural, but unifies skin tone and covers little redness in my cheeks. It's so confortable to wear, and last pretty good. Also, it's a water based formula son doesn't damage your skin.
I have combination/oily skin and it doesn't make me oily, when I set this with powder looks great.
Really great foundation for everyday!
For reference, I'm NW20/NC25 in MAC and # 420 in Biotherm Light!

Love this foundation! Its very light yet it covers the redness on my cheeks. I asked the counter girl of a foundation that is light, feels and looks natural and she recommended me this one. A bit expensive for a small bottle but i dont put make up on everyday so the bottle will surely last long.

I'm not sure whether this is still available, because I've already got it for a while, but since this is my summer foundation, and I mostly prefer minerals during summer this is a product that has been hardly touched.
Recently, as the weather has become warmer, I've decided to give it another try and actually enjoyed using it.
This is a very light foundation with medium coverage and good staying power, I had it for 6 hours with no problems.
Whenever I put on a liquid, my face tends to be really oily by miday (I usually put on my makeup at 7 in the morning), but with this foundation I didn't have any oil issues, although I still have to blot my face, it appears that the oilyness is under control.

I've tried a lot of foundation and this one is by far the best one I've ever tried! I was shopping for a foundation that moisturizes at the same time. I tried out a few and this one wins by a mile. It didn't emphasize my dry patches and really toned down the redness of my dry winter skin. I bought 430 which matches my yellow undertone and that's hard to do! The pump bottle is hygenic but don't put it in your bag cuz it'll just drip outta the pump =S But all in all, it's the best foundation i've tried so far and I've tried many!

One of the few foundations that I give five lippies to with all my heart - the BEST that I've tried!
As the name suggest this gives you light coverage, however I also found it to be one of the few truly 'buildable' foundations i.e. I could layer it up to medium coverage without a mask-like or flaky effect.
The foundation gives an almost-matte finish (very skin like) but (for me at least) had ZERO oil control so finish off with powder and blot through out the day if this is a concern! It didn't seam to clog pores so don't be scared off by the fact that it's not 'oil-free' as I first was ; )
The consistency is very light - almost runny and although this means you have tons of time to blend it also has a slight tendency to streak so I would recommend using fingers or a sponge rather than a brush with this one.
I have extremely pale skin and shade 415 worked well for me - a neutral shade with subtle yellow undertones that worked well to neutralize redness and conceal imperfections.
Biotherm is one of the more affordable department store lines, and although this product is by no means cheap I can honestly say that it was worth the price!
Once again, if you're looking for heavy duty coverage - just keep walking! Try this foundation if you're looking for very natural, your-skin-but-better results : )
p.s. Although it offers broad-spectrum protection, this foundation is below the minimal SPF 15 requirement so I recommend using a sunscreen underneath - I found that Paula's Non-greasy Sunscreen (in the spray bottle) worked great when paired with Biotherm's Light!

My skin was actually really good before I started using this, and for some reason, I decided on giving this a try to even out the skin on my face. This was the first actual foundation I've tried, and at first thought it was great. After a several days to about a week or so, I noticed I was breaking out. I thought it was maybe due to the fact I started using Fix+ too, so I stopped using Fix+, but continued using this because I didn't really think it would be the reason for my breakouts. I just would NOT stop breaking out, so I stopped using this, but was left with zits and clogged pores. It pretty much ruined my skin. It took months for my skin to clear up because of the scars and whatnot. NEVER purchasing this again!

i hv been using Biotherm Light! Easy-blend foundation veil natural - luminous (SPF 10), #420 for the past 2 yrs! the coverage is enough for me and also it is not too "thick". i rarely need to use any concealer after using this product.
however, my t-zone did get oily after abt 3 hrs of usage as i hv combination skin. after gently pressing on it with tissue, it did the trick, getting rid of the excess oil n my makeup stays on! no powdering was needed at all.
if i were to find anything better, it will be a bonus. otherwise, i will stick with this product for a long long time.

This might be THE ONE! The HG! I've been using it for about a month now and I absolutely love it. I'm a NC25/Shiseido I20 and #420 is an exact match for me. This foundation is very light and sheer yet it evens out my skintone so nicely. Sometimes after a few hours I forget that i'm wearing a full face of makeup because it is so light. After about 3-4 hours of wear my T-Zone did start to get oily but it doesn't bother me too much. I also like how it comes with a pump top, keeps away the yucky bacteria.
I'd probably buy again.

I tried very hard to get a good match for my skin. The clerk in the store was helpful and after looking under the lights in the store and also outside in bright sunlight I settled on 420 as it seemed the best match. This product is slippery - and is quite a light feeling. I don't know what happens to this as soon as it dries down on my skin. It's like it lightens up or something. It almost looks chalky white. I blend and blend to no avail. It's a medium coveage but the way it lightens on me I feel like I look like I'm wearing FOUNDATION. Not the look I'm striving for.

Me: LLL olive skin, brown eyes and brown hair. I have been wearing this for around 6 weeks now and I have to say I seriously LOVE it!!! I have the 415 shade and it is a great match. Unfortunately, it is the lightest shade sold in Australia so there arent the options for PPP girls. A liquid foundation that doesnt cause congestion on my sensitive skin, even if I wear it everyday - this is truly amazing for me. My skin is really sensitive, I cant wear many foundations from high end to low end and although I havent tried mineral foundation yet, I prefer the finish of liquid. It is fragrance free, comes in a hygenic pump bottle and is amazingly moderately priced, even in Australia. The finish is beautiful on my slighty oily skin. It is a natural satin finish, without irritating glitters like so many 'natural' foundations nor is it overly matte. I have pretty decent skin, it is clear but I have some minor redness and large pores, this foundation makes my skin look naturally flawless. It has light - medium coverage, probably like the next level up from a decent TM. I apply one pump with my foundation brush, I do wish that I could control the amount that comes out a little better as I always find that a full pump is a bit too much for the light coverage that I like so I just layer that extra bit where I would usually wear concealer like around my nose to use it up...As this is really liquid-y I find the best way to get a nice even layer is to use a foundation brush, I use a cheapie one and it does the job really well. Just remember to use short brush strokes, not long ones painting it on. It is currently winter here so i dont powder over the top but I think it should wear well in the Aussie summer with a bit of loose powder or MAC blot over the t zone. Anyway, I seriously LOVE this !!!

With shipping direct from Biotherm, this baby cost me around $29- similar to a MAC Studio Stick price. Ladies, it pains me to spend around $30 for a foundation, when I have purchased very good ones for about 1/3 of the price, but I am not kidding - this one I will not bat an eye, at repurchasing indefinitely. I never thought I would type this, but I believe I have found my HG foundation! I got a sample from a friend in Europe, she sent me this in a small box, in shade 430. I am a MAC C3/NC30 with oily to oilier skin, depending on the weather. I am medium, yellow toned with hazel eyes, my pores aren't excessively large or small, I tan easily, don't have sensitive skin, or too many wrinkles yet, at 36, but I do have fine lines under and around the eyes in the "eyeliner" areas. I have fairly good skin but sometimes have flaws.
This little "go to " foundation has it all. It is SO EASY to blend! It feels weightless. I can't even tell it's on. It doesn't streak when blending. It is a great color for me. It covers really well. It doesn't settle into fine lines. It has a slightly moist, not too matte, finish. It doesn't get oily throughout the day or sludge off. It doesn't turn orange. It doesn't break me out. It feels fresh. I like the way my skin looks with this on, so much!
I hate to say it, but with this in my arsenal, I think that my Jil Sander, Clinique and MAC liquids are going to go "buh-bye" after they run out.
I don't see a need for anything else, but this, and Visible Lift, from L'Oreal, when my skin needs an extra "boost."
So worth the money. I could hug my friend for sending me the sample!
Edited 3/2010: Still ok but it's just not as seamless looking as mineral makeup. More noticeable on the face. I am getting rid of my liquid makeup now.

I love this one! Have not had any problems with it oxiding, and I found an almost-perfect skintone match. Love the consistency- very liquid, almost watery, and love the sheer-but-still-there coverage. A total summer foundation ;D
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
I *love* the finish, perfect colour, easy pump bottle, SPF 10... BIG problem. 2 hours after i put it on, it oxidizes and turns orange. I use Shiseido's SPF 50 cream under this, but it just changes colour. Maybe try this if you don't wear sunscreen underneath. It is truly a waste because this foundation is great. Unfortunately it turned orange VERY badly, try it, but keep the receipt.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Very good packaging b/c it comes in a pump bottle. Light coverage...BUT I hate this foundation. It's too yellow and it oxidizes!! My face was orange by the end of the day. In the actual Biotherm store...it looked great on my face, you know with all the bright lights and stuff...but just wait a few hours and your face would turn orange looking. YUCK! Would Not repurchase and I definitely don't recommend this product. The quality obviously suck.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
I was looking for a natural foundation, which would even out my skin tone, stay put, and not cause breakouts. This is it! It blends seamlessly and is a perfect match for my pinkish Asian skin tone. I look healthy, and not at all artificial! I love the light feeling and how it NEVER CAKES! Despite how oily my face can get in the humid weather of my country, this foundation doesn't come off much when I dab it. I didn't expect it to control oil, but it does lessen sebum production a little (don't expect miracles though). The coverage is sheer, so you'll still need a concealer for dark circles and blemishes, but it's a great product to make your skin more naturally beautiful.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I loved this foundation it felt like i was applying water and it has good coverage. Unfortunatley the colors did not work for me. TOO TOO pink! The packaging is ok im glad it had a pump but i wouldnt carry this around in a makeup bag the pump is really sensitive so i kept mine in the box. @ @24.00 it cant be beat. MAKE A BROADER COLOR SELECTION BIOTHERM!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
A beautiful, natural-looking foundation! I took one lippy off, as the lightest shade, 405, is still a little too dark for my pale winter skin. My skin is clearing up and I wanted a lighter long-lasting, natural foundation that really lasts like my old beloved Colorstay Natural. My other favorite, Virtual Skin, is just a little too heavy for some days. This foundation feels liquidy, but glides on for impressive coverage. It gets the finish just right- a bit glowy, but not at all shiny or greasy. It's not totally transfer-resistant, but it's pretty good in that department. It sinks into your skin to look like your own and really lasts. I also love that it's non-comedogenic, which is surprisingly hard to find. The pump bottle is a huge plus. I got it at a special Shoppers in Toronto for about $30, which is a little pricey for me, but not too extravagant. I will try to update in the sweaty summer, which is a true test of foundation wear!

This is THE BEST foundation I ever used. Im a foundation junkie and have tried everything from Chanel, CD, EL, Sheseido, Clarins, BE to American Beauty and Revlon. This one beats them all. It glides on my skin and I look totally natural even if it has med. coverage, even in sun light. I have finally found my HG foundation and I will never be without it!!!!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I'm so happy about finding this out of the way foundation, I could see this being my grail foundation for quite a while. This product urged me to write my first review here! I heard about this on acne.org and saw pics of a girl who used it, and she looked glowy (NOT shiny!), natural, and wonderful. I then checked the reviews over here, and since they were good, went out to buy some for myself.
I have oily, acne-prone skin, and for the last year and a half or so have tried tons of foundations looking for the perfect one for me MAC Studio Fix Liquid, Prescriptives Flawless, etc.-not to mention the ten previous years constantly on a hunt for great foundation), and I think I've found it. The foundation IS light in texture (slightly less liquidy than L'oreal's True Match for reference) and look upon the skin, but NOT in coverage-it gives fabulous coverage. I have moderate zits on my face to cover, as well as redness from old breakouts, and my perpetually red nose.
The consistency is a somewhat runny liquid (not too "watery" though, but also not creamy). What I like is there doesn't seem to be a lot of "filler" in this foundation...just PIGMENT. It covers great, but looks very natural, but can definitely be built up.
It hasn't given me any problems so far as far as increased breakouts (I've been using it for 3-4 months now).
I love the pump bottle, it is so hygenic, and the glass and packaging are quite elegant I think.
It's not too expensive either, and I would pay a lot more for this if I had to.
I can see this being great for almost all skin types, except maybe for the very dry or the super-super oily. This lasts well through the day, and doesn't get spotty/seperated.
I love the way it melts into my skin (I like applying liquids with my fingers best), and how easily it blends.
It looks nice whether i want to apply my Biotherm Compact Powder over it, or go more glowy and use my BE Mineral Foundation over it.
Just very very happy with the coverage and natural look, and blendability.
