Vichy Dermablend 3D Correction Foundation

Hi everyone! So happy that I can finally say I finished my last exam on Tuesday and I am officially no longer a university student! It's absolutely crazy to think I've finished my degree after all the stress, but three years has gone so quickly and I am just so relieved that I've actually done it! Now I feel like I can finally concentrate on my blog more which makes me so happy, it's so awful feeling like you've neglected something you enjoy so much. Anyway I'm so glad I'm doing a foundation review, I haven't done one in what feels like ages, I've had really good experiences with Vichy products recently so when they kindly sent me their 3D Correction foundation* to try I was so excited!


I really loved their Dermablend Fluid foundation formula, but this one is so different. This foundation claims to instantly correct colour and skin texture and reduce the appearance of imperfections without leaving a mask like effect. This sounded so good for me because I have uneven skin pigmentation and texture on my lower cheeks and I have never found a foundation that has helped with the appearance of that where it made a major difference. Baring in mind I do have dry skin so when I come across a foundation that promises to mask skin imperfections but it has a matte finish I'm always a bit worried that it will just dry my skin out and look flaky and gross, but thankfully this wasn't the case! I have mine in the shade 15 Opal by the way which I believe is the lightest shade of this foundation, when you see it swatched below it looks so much darker than it actually is when blended out, trust me I am so pale at the minute and this matched me so well! The only thing is I feel like the undertones are quite pink whereas I am more neutral, this was the only small issue I had with the shade but it isn't even noticeable. 


The packaging and the applicator for this foundation is so interesting, I really love the squeeze tube because you can get all the product out, but the actual nozzle (I think that's what it's called...?) where the foundation comes out is nothing that I've ever seen before. I'm guessing it's because the foundation is very thick but I actually really like it because it's so clean, sometimes with squeeze tubes they can be a bit messy and product doesn't go everywhere but that isn't the case with this one. I feel like this is perfect travel size and you know it isn't going to explode everywhere which is honestly my worst nightmare, I had a conditioner explode once in my suitcase and it was the worst experience so I can't imagine how bad it is with a foundation.


You can see here how thick the foundation is, I was actually really intimidated when I first swatched it because it has an almost clay like texture and I was worried it wouldn't blend and would just dry my skin out, but honestly when you start blending it it's so soft and easy to work with which I didn't expect at all. With the matte finish I found that it didn't leave my skin looking dry, I just made sure to use any form of moisturising primer just in case and I had no issues at all. My favourite thing about this product though is definitely the coverage, I had to many spots with exam season and this foundation made such a difference, plus it covered up my uneven skin tone and texture really well, by far the best foundation I've tried for my skin problems. I've been absolutely loving wearing this for work or when I want my foundation to stay put because the staying powder is so good. I'm so relieved to say it didn't leave me looking like I was wearing a mask either which is usually what puts me off full coverage foundations.

The foundation also has SPF25 and is oil free, plus it's also suitable for sensitive skin which is good, I think this is honestly so good for anyone who has issues with the appearance of their skin like me, if you're dry it will still work really well for you and won't dry you out, just try it with a moisturising primer and it will be fine, but I also think if you've got oily skin then this will be a dream for you because it is matte and will absorb any excess oil. The best thing about it though is the coverage, anytime I'm having a bad skin day this is definitely what I will be reaching for! I know you can buy Vichy from Boots and this foundation costs £21.50 so it's definitely not the cheapest however I think if you have specific skin problems like me then spending a bit more money for a really good product can make such a difference, so I would definitely purchase this when I run out of this bottle. I actually do really like Vichy I feel like they don't get as much credit as they deserve because all the products I've tried I've absolutely loved. I've been eyeing up some products from their new Ideal Body Collection so next time I'm in Boots I think I'm going to try the Body Dry Oil and the Body Serum Milk because I've heard such good things about them. Let me know in the comments if you've tried any Vichy products and what you think!

  6. That really does look really thick. I have never tried Vichy makeup but am a huge fan of their skincare. I'll need to ask for a sample before purchasing.

  16. I've not actually had any experience with Vichy products before but I'm always intrigued by correction products and given how much you enjoyed this foundation, I'm going to have to keep my eye out I think!
