Today I have an exciting new product release from Seventeen (formally known as 17) to share you with!
Seventeen On The Spot Foundation is a new foundation to be launched in Boots stores nationwide from 13th May costing £6.99 for 30ml. The new foundation claims clearer skin in 4 weeks and aims to provide a full coverage finish.
The reason for these bold claims by Seventeen is that the foundation contains Salicylic Acid, a known spot fighting ingredient and whilst looking through the other ingredients I spotted Kaolin which helps to draw out impurities in the skin and is often used in clay face masks to help spots. So I will be trying to stick to using this foundation to see if it does help clear up the blemishes I currently have on my cheek. Yes, I did say my cheek! Worst place to have spots after the tip of your nose.
I have used this twice already and my first reactions to it are that it is full coverage and covers spots well and also Porcelain (the lightest shade is Porcelain - 6 shades available) is pretty good, not overly yellow or pink just a neutral pale shade. But if you are super pale it may be a little too dark but there will be testers of this in Boots when it comes out. The only thing I am not sure about is how it blends as it seems to set on the skin quite quickly, however I did apply it with my fingers so I will be trying it out with a brush next time. Though I will be doing an update next month to see if it has helped my skin and I can let you know which way I find best to apply it and if blending it is an issue.
I am actually really pleased to see this type of spot targeted foundation hitting the high street as there are just sooooo many foundations to pick from and none specifically say for blemish prone skin except for the Witch range.
