Review- Zelens Youth Glow Foundation

Lately,  I have been obsessed with Zelens skincare and I am trying to get my hands on everything they have to offer.
The brand also recently launched it’s own makeup line and what really caught my eye is the Youth Glow Foundation mainly because of it’s skincare properties.  I am definitely not a foundation user (I just own one foundation used only for parties / weddings) and rely on my tinted moisturisers,  BB and CC creams for daily use.

I usually hate the heavy congested feeling that foundations make my skin feel but this one is a totally different ball game.  I decided the best test would be to wear it to work and see how my skin feels after about 9-10 hours of wear.

Firstly,  the foundation is quite light and ‘liquidy’ in consistency. I apply it either with my fingers or my Wayne Goss stipling brush and both ways work very well. It has got light coverage,  gives the skin a light natural glow and doesn’t require any powder on top.  It looks very natural yet gives the skin life.

Wearing foundation for long hours almost always breaks me out but this foundation totally didn’t. This also looked surprisingly fresh on my skin throughout my work day and with no oiliness on my t-zone which is a huge surprise.
Best part of it all is I know that while the foundation is on my skin,  it is also simultaneously giving me skincare and anti ageing benefits. What more can a girl ask for?

I order Zelens either on Space NK or Cultbeauty. The Youth Glow Foundation costs £60.
Anyone tried this or the Age Control Foundation? Would love to know your views.
