Review of The Organic Skin Co. Fresh Canvas Foundation

 
The Organic Skin Co. Fresh Canvas Liquid Foundation in Rose Beige

The Organic Skin Co. Fresh Canvas Liquid Foundation- $42.00:

Here’s the quick SCORECARD breakdown. Each question is rated on a scale of 1 to 5, 5being the best:

1. How do the ingredients look? What’s inside?- Fantastic and they mention their critical extraction method, “the cleanest, purest way to extract all of a plant’s goodness and deliver it to your skin.” There are only too ‘iffy’ ingredients for those with sensitive skin types. See below.

2. How is coverage? Does skin look like skin?- 4: Yes, 100%. It's a very solid, lightweight (in-between light to medium) coverage. My skin feels like it can breathe! It's missing any extra luminosity, so you won’t get a dewy look, which some may love. Overall, my skin looks like skin!

3. Does it last?- 4: Yes, except in the more oily spots (t-zone). I had to watch that a bit and set.

4. Is it non-irritating?- 5: No irritation here! There’s potassium sorbate (see below), but it has limited evidence to back up the call that it may be a possible human allergen. Still, wanted you to know about it!

5. Does it build and blend well?- 4: It really does build well. I found this foundation moisturizing without looking greasy, settling into lines, or feeling heavy.

6. Is the shade range inclusive?- 3: Eight shades is a good start.

7. How conscious is the brand? 5- I rarely give a ‘5’ for this. Check out their site! Major ‘wow’ factor on the combo of being cruelty-free, vegan, recyclable, offering refills, and the brand keeps the environment top of mind by planting trees for every product sold! Job well done.

FINAL SCORE:

25/30

IN A NUTSHELL:

  • This is your workhorse foundation. It’s light to medium coverage that looks like skin when applied.

  • It doesn’t run dewy and won’t give you luminous finish.

  • The shade range is a start (obviously I’d love more than 8 shades!)

  • And the ingredients are where this brand really shines. Check out everything they’re doing in terms of supercritical extraction here.

  • If you have oilier skin, you will probably want to set this! It’s best for those looking for lightweight coverage sans the ‘dewy’ factor.
