When I am searching for a base, I look a few things, coverage, feel and shade. Once all three of those bases are covered, I know I am on the way to enjoying the product. All of these elements are things I looked for in the Vichy Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation.
The Vichy Dermablend Corrective Fluid Foundation is said to be a camouflage foundation to help even out issues such as redness and scarring. When it comes to this element of the fluid, I have to say I am probably not the best judge. My skin is in decent condition and my main worry is the redness around my nose which the Vichy Dermablend did a fantastic job in correcting.
Overall, it gave a more polished look to my skin while still feeling and looking like skin (something which is important to me in a foundation or base) which immediately made me warm to it.
Formula wise, the fluid in the name is slightly misleading as it comes out slightly on the thick side in terms of foundation but when you apply it on the skin, it blends smoothly and evenly. I found it was best to apply this with my fingers in order to get the most out of this using a thin layer but you can build this up to a higher coverage if you feel the need too.
This has been on my face for the past few weeks and it has sat well on the skin and lasts me through the working week. Enriched in Thermal Spa Water as well as Glycerin and plant oil which I need in the bitter cold weather we have been having in the UK as it kept my face soft and hydrated.
I will say, the one nagging this I am unsure about is the fact if you have dry skin this may cling to any patches or flaky skin you may have so if you want to give this a go because of the scarring effects make sure you moisturise and exfoliate to minimise this.
Vichy recently expanded their shade range in the Dermablend Corrective Fluid which means if you have deeper or Olive skin tones, you have more of a chance of being able to find your perfect shade. I am wearing the shade 35 sand without a bronzer and it works well so if you have a similar skin tone to me, do not be too scared to take a look at the shades on offer.
