For the past couple of months I’ve been using the La Mav Anti-Ageing Mineral Foundation combined with the La Mav BB Cream.
This foundation is an all in one concealer, sunscreen, foundation and powder, which means you can use it on it’s own and it will work fabulously, you really don’t need to use anything else with it, but as the BB cream also contains a primer and moisturiser, I use this first followed by the Mineral Foundation.
This Mineral Foundation is 100 percent natural and certified organic, cruelty free and proudly Australian made. Completely free from all of the nasty chemicals such as parabens, petrochemicals and synthetics.
The fact that this foundation is anti-ageing is a big added plus for me, as not that many loose organic powders are. It contains anti-ageing minerals and the anti-oxidant properties of certified organic rose-hip oil and vitamin C. It’s a good idea to start using anti-ageing products at any age, not just when you hit your 40’s and start noticing wrinkles! Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to skin care.
When applying I only used a light dusting and this set my make-up for the entire working day, no touch up’s needed. The staying power is extremely long lasting, it will last all day long.
La mav have done their research when it comes to performance and knowing what people need in their skincare products.
I find this powder to be very nourishing for my skin, at the same time as making my skin feel perfectly made up by hiding my imperfections, without making me feel as though I’m wearing a tonne of make-up. It adds a slightly glowing and soft shimmer look to my skin without making it look shiny.
As someone who can be prone to the occasional breakout, this also kept my skin clear and pimple free and hides any redness. This would also work well for those who suffer from Rosacea.
It comes in 4 different shades, I used the light/medium shade and this was perfect for my fair, but slightly tanned skin. It also contains a natural SPF 15 sunscreen and is water resistant, even on hot, sweaty days it will stay on your face!
The powder is very economical and you’re getting top quality at an affordable price.
I highly recommend both the La Mav BB Cream and Mineral Foundation powder as a healthy way to keep your skin looking and feeling great, I don’t think anyone will be disappointed after trying them.
Before this I was using a liquid foundation and pressed powder, but now I've been converted. Previously I've found other loose powders looked too thick, but this glides on smoothly and evens out to a very natural looking skin tone.
