GUERLAIN L'Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation SPF20 30ml

£39.60

Fear no more about foundation being bad for your skin thanks to the GUERLAIN L'Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation SPF20, a 97% naturally-derived makeup base inspired by the beauty of bare skin.

Foundation reinvented, with L’Essentiel naturalness and high performance go hand-in-hand. The radiant-finish foundation hydrates and balances the skin with white cocoa bean and red algae, while added SPF20 protects from harmful UV rays and pollution. Upon application, the comfortable, liquid texture will effortlessly envelop the complexion, while allowing your skin to breathe and offering a buildable, light to medium coverage that will stay even and flawless for up to 16 hours.

Infused with a kind-to-skin fragrance, L’Essentiel Natural Glow smells just as good as it looks and feels. Its woody, musky aroma opens with a delicious note of white almond that melts into a heart of white tea before giving way to a soft and creamy base of sandalwood that will leave your skin delicately scented and your senses awakened.

Why We Love It

Does foundation get much better than this? We especially can’t take our eyes off of the exquisite bottle! Designed by Matheieu Lehanneur, and inspired by the refined art of balance, it reflects the harmony between nature and makeup performance, a principle that the L’Essentiel Foundation was born from. Available in a variety of shades to match every skin tone and finished with GUERLAIN’s luxury edge, L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation is deserving of a spot on everyone’s vanity.

How To Use It

Then, dab the foundation onto the face at five points: forehead, nose, chin, left and right cheeks and blend and buff the foundation into the skin from the centre of the outwards using your foundation brush.

Reviews
 
GUERLAIN L'Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation SPF20 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! This foundation does exactly what it says! I got it in shade 01C and it matches my skin tone perfectly. I’m pale with cool undertones and used to use Estee Lauder Double Wear in shade 1C2 Petal. The fragrance is light and not noticeable at all after a while.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not my favourite foundation... I purchased this from Escentual after reading the write up decided to risk it as it sounded fresh and contemporary. Texture: It is full coverage and not the light feel I was expecting. It is 'sticky' to apply and hard to blend by hand - it may be easier with a brush or sponge. However, it does mix well with a serum, moisturiser or CC Cream. I blended it with my beloved By Terry CC Cream and got much better results. Don't press for a full' pump' or it will be quite 'cakey' with a mask like finish-quite an old fashioned feel - maybe work the product on the back of the hand before applying if using fingers. Feel: It feels very drying on the skin and I felt it 'enhanced' wrinkles!!! Longevity: It is really long lasting and oddly, really does look better as the day goes on. Hard to remove when cleansing at night -had to use a cleansing oil -even though I had blended it to recreate a more 'moist' feel. Look: As above, a full powdery 'old fashioned' coverage - not the 'dewy' translucent look I prefer -maybe good for those who like vintage fashions and a retro, theatrical look. Fragrance: This is actually horrible. Remember your grandma's face powder that she probably kept for years - long after the sell by date? THAT is the fragrance, luckily if you blend it you can disguise it. Colour: My fault, I should not have ordered a new foundation online. To assist me in colour choice, I looked up a foundation matching site online and they recommended O2N light. I was a bit suspicious as I am fairly light to mid with rosy toned skin (Irish) and so very light tones are not right for me. I have also read that over 50's (which I now am) should opt for a more yellow tone so I went feral and chose 02W Light Warm. It is kind of OK but a bit pale for me and VERY yellow - but if blended as above is a fair if not ideal match. For reference I normally wear Warm Beige by Bobbi Brown, 108 Sand in Clarins Everlasting Cushion and Natural in By Terry CC cream. Overall It was not at all the texture I was expecting, I don't enjoy applying it or using it - far too heavy and the fragrance is very off-putting. But so glad it is natural as can be. The quest for the best foundation for me continues... I do feel it is sadly going to be the hyper expensive (and not sure of the natural credentials) the Bobbi Brown Serum Foundation which I can ill afford.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful foundation This Guerlain foundation is absolutely brilliant. I love it. The colour recommended for me is the best match I have ever had and it is so comfortable to wear and lasts all day. Best ever foundation I have ever purchased and I would thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
