Review: Living Nature Illuminating Foundation

Today I would like to share with you my thoughts on Living Nature’s Illuminating Foundation and swatches of the available shades.

Here is a little information about Living Nature Illuminating Foundation….

WINNER: ‘Best Skin Perfector’, 2013 Natural Health Magazine Beauty Awards, Jamie Lee Grace Awards 2011 Best Natural Foundation A wonderful light foundation tint in a medium shade, with a gentle shimmer or pearlesence. Gives your complexion a soft radiance and minimises the appearance of fine lines. Manuka Honey and natural oils give nourishment, and pure minerals provide the soft healthy glow. Great for evening wear.

To use: Apply with fingertips and blend onto both sides of the face from the nose outwards. Use light sweeping movements and take special care to blend past the jawline.

For all skin types.

I have reviewed and featured a few Living Nature products before (Previous posts here) and found them too all be of a really good quality. I love their Tinted Moisturiser (Review here) which looks great on the skin and smells wonderful too. I was really excited about trying the Illuminating Foundation because of its natural healthy glow it claims to give your skin.

The illuminating foundation has the same natural fragrance as the tinted moisturiser, so I was really pleased. I love the natural fragrance, how it relaxes me and isn’t overpowering at all. This is one of my big loves with Living Nature, how their products are sourced from Natural ingredients.

On application I found I was in the shade ‘Day Glow’ out of the 3 (Dawn Glow is for light complexions, Day Glow for medium complexions and Evening Glow for Darker/Tanned complexions), so have been using this shade. A little of this product goes a long way, although its really a build-able foundation. I would say coverage is light to medium as it evens out the skin tone nicely and covers some blemishes and marks/scaring.

Although the product states it has a ‘shimmery’, ‘pearlesent’ finish there isn’t a hint of sparkle in it. It just seems to ‘illuminate’ your skin, making it appear brighter, more dewy and giving you a healthy glow.

In my opinion the Illuminating Foundation from Living Nature is perfect for Summer when you want your skin to look natural, yet with a nice light/medium coverage.

I would like to add, being someone who does have sensitive skin I have not had a reaction to a Living Nature product before and find they work excellently on my dry skin.
