My oily complexion means that I can never really get away without powdering. Luckily there are some pretty beautiful powders available these days; Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder is certainly one of them. I personally like a bit of extra coverage from powders, so I was happy to see that Bourjois made one for me that was a perfect colour match. Although there are actually only four shades available, which is not the best selection. I'm very pale and I use 'Vanilla' which is the same shade that I wear in Bourjois foundations.
The ingredients inside Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder, include 'Yuzu' for anti-shine and Sharon Fruit' for Hydration. What I personally like about this powder is that it's incredibly fine milled, so it does not feel heavy at all. Yet, it still gives coverage, sets makeup and keeps shine at bay all day long. Some powders can feel quite drying on the skin, but this is really comfortable. It also comes in a really sleek and small compact; with a good size mirror too, which makes it perfect for chucking in your handbag. It's rare that you find a powder which has a mirror inside, yet is not too bulky for travel, this is perfect.
At £8.99 the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder is in the middle price range for high street powders. It's not as cheap as Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder but nowhere near as expensive as the Revlon alternative. I'm really happy with this purchase, I think I might go as far as to give it holy grail status! You can pick it up from Superdrug here.
