ThisThatBeauty Reviews: GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation

A foundation ingredient label that you can actually pronounce? @christenecarr explains. . . . .

Truthfully, when was the last time you looked at a foundation bottle and could understand and pronounce all the ingredient names? Hmmm…never, you say? Well, I am a product ingredient junkie and even I often have difficulty. Not so with GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation. The Ingredient list is impressive but that wouldn’t mean diddly squat if the product wasn’t also effective.

The ingredients in GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation are: Shea Butter, Dimethicone, Sunflower Oil, Berry Wax, Grape seed oil, Jojoba oil, Iron Oxides and Titanium dioxide; that is a whopping six ingredients plus two colors. GlamNatural foundations are formulated without water, as such they are highly concentrated and a little does go a long way. When applying this foundation it is imperative that you start with just the tiniest amount and blend out, adding more if needed. I have oily skin, so when I tested this product I didn’t use a moisturizer. I cleansed, applied a serum them applied the GlamNatural foundation.

The shade I tried, Bronze 2, was a little off for me, but it turns out that it was perfect for my girlfriend who is darker complected and has dry skin. Before I reluctantly handed it off to her, I found that it also worked if added a drop of foundation to my regular moisturizer (a quick and easy tinted moisturizer.) I got a nice glow and light coverage, which is perfect for those days when I’m feeling a little lazy but still want to look my best.

GlamNatural Hydrating Foundation comes in 6 shades. Ivory 1 and 2, Beige 1 and 2 and Bronze 1 and 2. The website does a good job of breaking down who should select what shade but the swatch colors are ridiculously off. From reading the description I think I would be a Bronze 1. Here is Bronze 2 on my hand..

Comments

  1. The simplicity of this is very appealing, but as someone with oily skin the dimethicone base throws me off and limited colour range makes me skeptical. Will definitely be checking out the website though to read more. :]

  2. Felicia Felicia says:

    Beauty Thesis: the shade range is actually more vast in person than the swatches on the web. For example, bronze 1 and 2 were dark for me. Worth looking into:)
