This foundation is truly amazing, it has fantastic coverage, provides SPF15 and makes your skin feel and look fabulous. There are two options to choose from: BB Cream and Creamy Cake Foundation – both are from Sabore, an organic NZ company. The BB Cream option comes in a pump bottle and provides a good depth of coverage. It goes on smoothly and evenly to provide a lovely dewy look without being oily or shiny. The Creamy Cake Foundation option comes in a jar and can provide anything from a light coverage to a seriously full coverage depending on application. It feels really light on the skin and does not dry out or go flaky.
Both foundation options are easy to apply and stay on all day. They not only feel great on the skin and will not block pores, but they are also great for your skin with ingredients such as: Vitamin E, carrot oil; rosemary extract; neem oil; aloe vera; and jojoba.
Usage tips: Before applying any foundation you should cleanse, tone and moisturize the skin 5 minutes before – this will ensure that your skin does have any dry patches which might ‘grab’ pigments and prevent even application of the foundation. There are a number of ways to apply BB Cream, we prefer to pump out 2 squirts of foundation onto the index and middle fingers of one hand and then ‘warm’ this product between the index and middle fingers of both hands before pressing it over the face – checks, nose, forehead, chin (in that order)- and then blend it with either your fingers or a sponge from the middle of your face outwards. The Creamy Cake Foundation should be applied with a sponge to get a good coverage using the same principal as for BB Cream – swipe the sponge across the foundation and then press the sponge onto the face in the pattern suggested before spreading the foundation from the middle of your face outwards. If you would like a really good coverage, you could repeat the application of either foundation.
The foundation comes in a number of shades, the most popular being no.1 (suitable for pale cool toned skins) and no.2 (suitable for warm toned skins with a slight tan and yellow based skins). There are a number of different shades including very dark options, if you need a different shade please contact us here to discuss your needs.
We recommend that you remove this make up with disposable bamboo Diva Wipes as they are soft and gentle on the skin.
*Wondering what a warm or cool skin tone means? if you hold a pink fabric up to your face does it make you look brighter (healthy and glowing) or sallow (dull and yellow)? – if you look nice and bright then you have a cooler skin tone and will suit blue based colours such as pink, cool reds, blues, icy pastels. If you hold a yellow or tan toned fabric up to your face and you look nice and bright then you are warm toned and will suit warm colours such as browns, oranges, yellows, greens, and bronze colours. If you look great with either pink or tanned toned fabrics, then you are lucky enough to have a neutral skin tone and can wear all colours.
