IN A NUTSHELL:
This is a different type of foundation that will work best on oilier skin types based on my research. That said, if you have dry skin and this is a HG product, let me know!
For me, it just sat right on top of the skin and never gave that flawless look. I wouldn’t re-purchase this one.
IFFY INGREDIENTS + EWG RATING:
These were the not-so-great ingredients that didn’t pass the Rule of 3. Click below to find out all the details:
Coconut Alkanes is ONLY a tricky ingredient if you have sensitivities to coconut oil. Otherwise, the list looked pretty great!
