BIO Detox foundation by Bourjois

Some time ago I purchased the Bio Detox foundation – but since I had a terrible cold for a couple of weeks I didn’t have the chance to try it out any sooner and give you my feedback.
Girls, I am afraid I have some bad news regarding this product, although I was really excited about it.
Let me start by telling you that I have a relatively “easy” combination skin without much discolorations, large pores or break outs (unless my skin is on crisis) –and let me continue by saying that this product made “any” imperfections STAND OUT in a way I have never experienced before.
First of all, when I applied it over my usual day cream –as if these two were in bad terms- the foundation turned into small flakes dragging along my cream (horrible). So, I had to try it with another cream (which seemed to work better) and it was then I discovered that its consistency was soooooo thick it was a hassle just trying to apply it and smooth it out on my skin. And as soon as I rewarded me by magnifying  my pores..... and trust me I DON’T HAVE ANY!
Finally, after a lot of work -blending- the overall result was somewhat cakey!
Bad news,hah?
But since I would like to be fair to the product and the company, I must admit that I have only tried applying it using either my fingers or a sponge, so maybe this foundation requires a brush (?!) Will definately try using a couple of different brushes. Moreover, I have to tell you that the foundation’s color tone was almost identical to my skin color (quite rare) and trust me this is coming from a girl who has tried most -if not all- foundations. And the last but not the least is that it did not make my skin break out - on the contrary it was as if my skin was protected and breathing at the same time.

PS: Since this was my personal review, it does not mean that this product won't be the ideal foundation for someone else, so my suggestion is to always try a product on your skin before jumping on to any conclusions...


  1. Great Post. A blog you will be able to relate to. Xoxo

  2. Oooops... Talking about product fail!
    Thank you for this review, I've been eyeing the Bourjois foundations a lot lately- so this one is crossed out from my list! Oh and trust me, if this product didn't blend in with your fingers, it won't blend with brushes either... Bad Bourjois!
