Review: Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation SPF 20 (Gold-45)

I've had some breakouts on my face which have recently cleared up but still left those dark marks on my skin, so I've been looking for a high coverage foundation that would help conceal it when I go out. I've tried many high coverage foundations but they didn't seem to match my skin or cover the imperfections- so after doing a bit of research, I came across the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation. I purchased it because of the rave reviews on the internet.

This is by far, the best foundation ever! Not only does it match my skin (The unique Gold colour for my olive skin tone), it has covered most of my acne marks and some pigmentated areas. It is quite a thick but silky formula- but you don't need much! Just squeeze a little pea size amount onto the palm of your hands and work your way around your face. If you have quite a few imperfections- you might need 2-3 pea size amounts. To ensure it is applied evenly and smoothly, I use my fingers. I used the Demablend Setting Powder to ensure the foundation lasted. I can honestly say the foundation stayed on most of the day.. After a few hours, I developed a bit of a shine to my face, but I used the Dermablend setting powder to get rid of it...

The Foundation also contains SPF 35 (which is a sunscreen protection) and has many dermatological ingredients such as The Vichy Thermal Spa Water which is renowned for it's soothing and fortifying properties.

*It started raining the other day and I forgot to bring my umbrella with me, so I got soaked! I expected my makeup to come right off, but to my surprise, my foundation stayed on! I can't believe it!*

To conclude I'm very happy with the Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective Foundation- it conceals 95% of your imperfections (acne scars, dark spots, pigmentation), it lasts all day (provided you use the setting powder), and it gives you a smooth, silky and natural glow! I really love the Gold colour- this colour adapts perfectly to olive skin tones and it's great for dry skin types and for girls who don't like Matt finishes.

I've done some research and one of the official stockists for Vichy products is Boots. I do not recommend purchasing from retailers who are not authorised to sell Vichy products as they might not be genuine and you also may be paying more then the manufacturers recommended price. 

I recommend purchasing from boots. Currently the foundation costs £18 for 30ml. The setting powder costs £15. 

Here are the links to the Products (you can also check store availability).
I would recommend you purchase in-store rather than online due to delivery costs. You can also order online and pick up in store which is free.
