Lancôme Skin Feels Good Foundation – Review.

Product blurb: “This lightweight foundation is enriched with skin-loving ingredients such as vegetal glycerin, hyaluronic acid and Moringa tree extracts to actively improve and protect your skin.
Its flawless sheer coverage helps to provide a healthy and radiant looking complexion, while its fresh water-made texture hydrates your skin.”

These photos show the marked difference between the shade online and the shade in reality.

I have dryish skin, some texture, slight smile lines and tend to wear sheer to medium foundations so this seemed like a good product to try and for £26 on the Lancome website isn’t too “up there” in price for me. I also liked that they offer shades for cool undertones, however, in real life – I’m questioning what they consider to be cool as this foundation is more peach.

Even against a neutral foundation the Lancome one is quite peachy.

Dubious shade aside, the foundation’s benefits and texture made me think that this would be nice and hydrating with a natural to dewy finish. Applied over my favourite primer (Bobbi Brown “Vitamin Enriched Face Base”) with a buffing brush, it immediately showed up texture around my nose and across my cheeks.

Holy orange, Batman, and look at that texture.

I like to give products a fair chance so I’ve since re-tried this foundation having chemically exfoliated the night before, used the thickest moisturiser I own in my AM skin routine, over the same primer, and using a beauty sponge and even though it’s better, it’s still not good.

It dries down eventually and from a distance (and in photos) looks really nice but up close you can see the slightly powdery finish and where it settles into fine lines.

TLDR: if you have even slightly dry / textured skin and having a foundation emphasise that will annoy you then I wouldn’t recommend. Also I would definitely advise swatching in a store as their product photos aren’t accurate for at least the shade I picked up.

Purchased myself.

Looks pretty in photos at least.
