Finally got my hands on this foundation after my first parcel went walkies during delivery (cheers Amazon). However it was reshipped quickly so I cannot fault their customer service 👍. Being in the UK this foundation is sold exclusively on Amazon (www.amazon.co.uk) for £11.99 (30ml of product) and usually their delivery service is excellent.
The packaging is nice and simple in a plastic tube making it very useful for travelling and getting all the product out. The foundation comes out of the tube really easily and you don’t need much pressure on the tube due to how runny the foundation is.
I used the colour swatches on the products images to find my shade picking 202 creamy natural and I have to say it’s pretty much my perfect shade. The foundation is described as being medium coverage and I would agree with that. It does apply really thin but it is a buildable foundation so you can layer it up if you need more coverage.
I swatched it on my hand and it did oxidise a little bit when compared with fresh from the tube. However I have had foundation that reacts much worse after exposure to air.
I was a little bit worried about the “glow” part of this foundation but it’s just perfect. It just adds a nice radiance to your skin but not a shiny or greasy look. There are no sparkles within this foundation. I usually struggle to create a natural looking base with my foundation but this makes it so easy to achieve.
I was surprised at how lightweight the Pro-Glow foundation is. Usually I find medium coverage to be quite thick and can feel heavy on the skin but this feels super light even with my oily skin. I kept forgetting I was wearing foundation.
This foundation claims to last 24 hours. DO NOT wear your foundation for this long as it’s really bad for your skin. I did wear this for about 8 hours in total and I didn’t have to retouch it at all. However, I do use a matte moisturiser and primer as a base which may have helped with this.
I have applied this foundation with both a beauty blender and a brush and didn’t really notice any differences in the finish of the foundation. It was easy to apply with both but my own preference is a beauty blender just because I can struggle with streaking when I use a brush.
I’ve been wearing this foundation for a few days now-minimum of 6 hours a day-and I haven’t noticed any changes to my skin such as acne, irritation or a rash. Again I don’t have sensitive skin so I wouldn’t expect my skin to have any problems.
Overall I am really happy with this product. It performs as described by Loreal and is easy to work with. It can be worn by itself but also blends well with contouring palettes and blush.
