When it comes to foundation, I’m definitely all about lightweight feeling formulas, dewy finishes. I think it’s because I don’t wear foundation every day, so when I do, I don’t wan’t products feeling heavy on my skin. My favourite foundations are always airy feeling, easy to apply and usually provide a light to medium coverage.
The City Radiance foundation from Bourgois provides a protective, light weight and silky feel to the skin. The packaging comes in a tube like form; easy to travel with for on the go use and great for storing in the make up bag – no messy lids, no pumps, you could very easy even use this foundation with your fingers it’s that user friendly.
Bourjois this time have also added anti pollution ingredients to help shield the skin from nasty particles that can stick or even block the skin. I’d love using this when I’m back in London, travelling on the tube and around town means you really need to look after your skin so well.
In addition to the anti pollution screen, City Radiance also contains an SPF of 30. Anything 15-30 is great in my opinion although as we approach summer in Dubai, 30 is definitely what I’d reach for as a minimum. No need to delve in to why SPF’s are great again (I mention this all the time!) but to protect yourself from harmful UVA/B rays, it’s essential to have products that are going to block damaging effects of the sun. City Radiance protects the skin from UVA rays, those are the rays that can cause premature ageing and wrinkles.
The foundation comes in a range of 6 shades, I use the shade 03 Beige Clair and it’s ideal for my dark olive skin tone. They’re priced at AED 79 and available at the drugstore.
