Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation swatches and Review

Whenever someone asks me to recommend a foundation for them, the first one that comes to mind is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation. This was the first ever foundation I started using after seeing Essie Button constantly using this, and to this day it is still my go-to base for everyday wear. It also apparently contains vitamins that tackle fatigued skin, but honestly I'm not sure 100% sure this claim is true! I understand that the lightweight formula doesn't block pores as much as a heavy-duty foundation would, but I don't think it can fade dark circles or anything like that. It can make them a look a ton better though, which is what we want from a foundation anyway! 

Product Description (what they say)
Give your skin a boost of radiance with a vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula for an even complexion and an instant anti-fatigue result!
Its fresh and instant blending gel texture blends and glides onto the skin for an even, natural finish with no mask effect. Imperfections are erased, signs of fatigue are smoothed and the skin’s radiance is boosted for up to 16 hours.
Made from vitamin-rich fruit therapy formula with litchi, goji berries and pomegranates.

It is available in 6 shades, yet I have heard from many people that they don't cater to their paler skin. Being of an Asian origin, I didn't have a problem finding the right shade but I can understand why for some it would feel limited. 
Packaged in a lovely, sleek glass bottle, the foundation itself didn't disappoint. The formula is gel-like that blends into the skin to give off a lovely dewy finish. If you guys know me at all, you probably know that I adore a dewy and glowing skin. It offers medium coverage but I found that you can easily build it up and it won't end up looking cakey at all. Whats more, I adore the pleasant fruity scent which makes a lovely change from other foundations. 
If you have dry or dehydrated skin like me, this is perfect! I used to fear wearing foundation because whichever one I used, it would crumble on my face as I applied it especially because I didn't wear loads. But with this, I can just dab a small pump of product under my eyes, around my nose with particular focus on the centre of my face where the light hits for a healthier glowing look. 
For the summer, I love wearing just this foundation alone, but for a higher coverage and a more toned down, semi-matte finish I simply powder my face to set it all in place to last the entire day which it sure will do. 
Thats all for now then folks! Have you tried the Healthy Mix Serum or do you prefer another foundation which you deem worthy enough to be your holy grail drugstore product? Feel free to comment below.
