Vichy Dermablend Foundation Review (+ Before/After Shots!)

I'm not one to wear full coverage foundations on a daily basis, I like to save them for a night out or for those days when my skin is looking a little worse for wear. Today, is one of those days (break out central). Every cloud has a silver lining and what not, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to take some 'before and after' photos to show you just how well vichy's dermablend corrective foundation works. I'm extremely self conscious about my skin at the best of times so this is a HUGE deal for me. I personally prefer to see product reviews that actually show you the product in action so I bit the bullet and took some (rather horrendous) images for you. Please be nice! 

Before (skin prepped only with moisturiser, hence the scars from past blemishes)

After (I'm only wearing the foundation in this photo. No concealer etc.)

I think you can see from the photo's how well it covers redness, blemishes and scars. Unlike some fuller coverage foundations I've tried it doesn't look 'cakey' or cling to any blemishes/dry patches. I only use a small amount of the foundation (about a pea size) and you can see from the photo's that a little goes a long way. I think that's down to the 'high concentration of high coverage pigments'.

I used to be an Estée Lauder Double Wear gal through and through but I think I actually prefer this foundation. It doesn't create any make up lines or cakiness, it feels light and breathable and doesn't leave the skin looking dull. I think it's quite a rarity to find a full coverage foundation that allows the skin to somehow still look radiant. This foundation is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, fragrance free and offers an SPF of 35 - what's not to love? Oh, and even better, it won't break the bank! You can pick up a bottle for £13.60 from escentual

Have you tried vichy dermablend?


  1. I've always wanted to try this but for some reason never bothered buying it, think ill pick this up in Boots next time i go! didnt realise how cheap it was either x

    1. I think it's a little more expensive in boots as escentual have an offer on, it's not too much more though :) x

  2. I'm really impressed with the look of this foundation! Your skin looked flawless with it on ! x


    1. It's really, really good! I'd highly recommend it x
