Vichy Derma Blend Review

Another product I received in my June Glossy Box, was this Derma Blend starter kit, it claims to be a 'camouflage foundations stick for minor to severe skin flaws' so I had to try it out, seeing as I have just broken out in a few blemishes. 

When applied, it felt a lot thicker than the foundation I use at the moment; Revlon ColorStay. It was quite difficult to apply because of that fact, I think you would need to mix it around quite a bit to make the mixture warm enough to be applied easily to your face. 

However saying that, as I applied it, it did cover the blemishes I had on my forehead and below my nose which is always welcome. It is also fragrance free and hypoallergenic which is helpful, seeing as I have sensitive skin. It also claims that it is resistant to water and perspiration.

I am quite impressed that it shows it can cover up irregular pigmentation, along with intense redness and dark circles around eyes, which means you don't need to use a concealer as well as this product. It would be interesting to know if this foundation really is that good.

The downsides of this product is that it only lasts for 16 hours if you also use the Dermablend setting powder, which is £16 for 28g. Which is more money you have to spend. Seeing as the foundation itself is £19 for 12g I think it's a bit too expensive for me. 
But if someone with a skin complaint happens to want a really good foundation and money isn't an object, then this foundation is probably perfect for you, seeing as it's great at covering blemishes etc.
