Today I am going to review a foundation which I have been using for quite some months now. It is the Essence Clear and Matt Oil Free Foundation.
What they claim:
Unwanted shine doesn‘t stand a chance with the oil-free clear & matt foundation! its special active ingredients absorb excess oil and give you a healthy, shine-free complexion - all day long! vitamin e protects your skin from any impurities. dermatologist tested.
The packaging is quite compact and convenient. It holds 30ml/1fl.oz of product as most foundations and the bottle is a squeeze tube which allows for great control of the amount of product you need.
The product helps to control oil on the skin
while providing light to medium coverage I am in the shade 02 Honey and the big downside to this product is the limited amount of shades that this brand offers! There are only three shades to choose from and I was lucky to have this color match me perfectly
The product is very thin and spreads out really easily
on the skin. It is absorbed really quickly and leaves the skin matte and shine free. This is a dollop of product on my hand.
I have quite a big amount on my skin but it is
spread out a little so you can get an idea of the shadeand texture of this foundation. My recommendation is to choose this foundation ifyou have good skin but you want to even out your complexion,or if you want light coverage and maybe want to use some concealer on any blemishes that you might have.
What I think:
I love this foundation when I want a light covering of the skin without hassling too much that my foundation is blended perfectly and that it is spread evenly. This product allows you to even out your skin tone without being too heavy on the skin while providing a nice matte and shine free surface. The color selection is not the best but if you happen to fit in a shade then it is great. The product cost about €4 and I have found mine at a local pharmacy. You can check out more from this brand on their website.
Have you tried any Essence products? What do you think about this foundation?
