Guerlain has launched their brand new foundation, “L’Essentiel” I was very keen to try this out since I’ve always had a difficult time getting the right shade to match my complexion.
L’Essentiel is composed of 97% natural origin derived ingredients to provide skin with a skin-like look and natural glow and it does just that. It is easy to apply with a sponge. It is also packed with prebiotics and probiotics and protects against pollution, whilst boosting hydration and maintaining the skin’s natural balance.
For a luminous foundation I was very impressed with the coverage, it’s buildable and even with just a small amount I was able to give my skin a smooth appearance. With a lot of foundations I have tried in the past they become too heavy when building up giving a caked up look. But this foundation gives a very light airy feel and the plus point has an spf 20 for added protection making it perfect for summer.
The glow is supposed to last for 16H, and almost lasts the whole day.
The bottle has a unique tilted design by Mathieu Lehanneur and Guerlain have focused on sustainability, which is a bit of a hot topic at the moment, in mind when creating this bottle.
I’ve been using this foundation every day since I got my hands on it and I am so impressed, it’s the perfect coverage, gives skin a natural glow, doesn’t cling to dry patches, has skincare benefits and I’ve had many compliments on my skin since using it.
Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation is available in 30 shades now.
