Review: Bourjois City Radiance Foundation

I recently watched Zoella’s Boots Haul and saw that she had bought Bourjois’ City Radiance Foundation. It looked like a really interesting foundation and I liked the idea of radiance, something that we all want. I bought it in Boots’s for £9.99, which was a great price and so far have been really pleased with it.

It has a BB/CC Cream sort of consistency and, as with other foundations of this sort, I have found that a little goes quite a long way. One thing that I really love about this is that it smells super nice, not at all like a normal foundation. It has a sort of sweet, fresh smell which makes you want to use it. As you all know, my skin is quite sensitive and so I am often wary of trying new products because I have to be careful about what I put on my skin.

For me, one of the big selling points of this product is the fact it has SPF 30. I am used to BB creams that have SPF 15, but often that isn’t enough for me. I think it is really important to protect your skin from the sun, even in dreary England. It also has an anti-pollution screen, which for me isn’t such a selling point because I live in the countryside, however if you live in the city is a great feature that could really save your skin.

I would say this foundation is best to wear when you are having good skin days as it doesn’t provide full coverage. It can remove the appearance of some blemishes but not all due to it’s thinner consistency. For me this isn’t a problem but if you like something with a bit more coverage then maybe this isn’t the best product for you. However, I would recommend this to anyone, and it seems to be okay with my sensitive skin, so if you struggle with that then this would be a good choice.
