Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder - Reviewed!

As someone with oily skin I rely on powders to help keep me matte throughout the day. That doesn't mean i'm a fan of heavy cakey powders; I much prefer something that is light on the skin and sets things in place. I have fallen in love with the Healthy Mix range so I thought it was about time I gave the powder a go.

The packaging is lovely; it's a slim compact in a pinky red colour which comes with a decent sized mirror on the inside. It claims to even out and boost radiance in the complexion as well as smoothing over the skin and controlling shine.

The powder is so finely milled; it feels like a high end powder. Due to this it applies easily and smoothly onto the skin. It feels light on the skin yet mattifies and set your base product in place. It claims to give 10 hours where which I would agree with when my skin isn't super oily. If i'm having a very oily day I would say it lasts about 6 hours; because it is so light it is great for doing touch up as it won't cake up on the skin.

This is quickly becoming my favourite powder to use as it ticks all the boxes and doesn't look powdery whilst keeping things in place. I would definitely recommend this powder if you let to set your makeup in place yet don't want things to look super matte. 

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder retails for £8.99.

Have you tried this powder?

  1. This sounds like a great powder. I'm currently nearing the end of my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder so I may check this out once it is all done and dusted. Raspberrykiss xo
