The next foundation I had to try out from my adventure in getting the lightest foundation of every cruelty free brand at the drugstore, was Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation with SPF 20 in the shade LC1. Which is the lightest shade of the 12 included in this line with almost no medium dark to deep dark shades. This foundation costs $12.99 and contains 1 oz of product.
Claims of this foundation:
The Healthy Foundation SPF 20 by Physicians Formula is packed with vitamins and antioxidants for healthy coverage. Chinese Wu-Zhu-Yu Extract and Hyaluronic Acid infused formula brightens, hydrates, and even skin tone. It’s brightening complex is for all Skin Types. It is also an ultra-blendable, lightweight, buildable, and breathable formula.
Unlike most foundations this one is applied via a doe-foot applicator similar to the one found in the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer. Which is the worst kind of applicator if you at all care about sanitization of your makeup. Especially if you’re a makeup artist since you can’t clean it. Best you can do is put it on a clean palette then apply to face from there.
Wear Test Results
I do agree that this foundation is easy to blend and is lightweight on the skin. You can also build up the foundation without accidentally wiping away or blending away what you’ve previously applied.
Out of all the foundations I’ve tried in the last few months, this one was the worst. I decided to wear this on Easter. Which was probably a terrible idea as not even three hours later it was already breaking apart around my smile lines. And clinging in patches around either side. Typically I like my foundation lasting most of the day before falling apart, but this one just went down the hill and quickly. At the three hour mark, I couldn’t stand it any longer and took it all off. I have not tried it again since as I already did everything I could’ve to make it hydrated before applying so there wasn’t much I could’ve tried differently. For that reason, I would not recommend this foundation. However, it might work better if you have oily skin but for dry skin this is not the right one as it just clings to dry patches.
