I was a loyal customer of my old foundation and wanted to switch to a cleaner brand. This foundation is super light weight and goes on nicely- the color matches my skin really well. I’m happy with my decision and will purchase this product again when I run out- seems like the bottle will last awhile!
True Skin Serum Foundation
This foundation last throughout the day.
I ordered some new items and loved them all. They arrived quickly and packaged well. Thank you!
I was torn between rating this a 3 or a 4 and my reasoning is below.
Pros: I like the texture of the foundation and no issues with the scent. It goes on nicely, not sticky or heavy, has a fluid consistently and spreads easily. It was exactly what I was looking for in a natural non toxic foundation.
Cons: I notice Phenethyl Alcohol listed as an ingredient. From what I can find online, this is similar to Phenoxyethanol - an ingredient I am trying to avoid completely (really all phenols since I have vitiligo). I found Aillea and chose to start buying their products because of their commitment to never sell products that contain Phenoxyethanol. From what I have read so far, Phenethyl Alcohol is basically the same thing. Hopefully I can get in touch with someone who can really explain this and convince me of their differences.
Other con/complaint: I found it difficult to choose the correct shade. I had to scour the internet and the Ilea site to get a more accurate depiction of the colors and how they look on different skin tones. I wasn’t super confident in my choice but decided to go with the Milos SF8. All the medium shades seem to have either a red or yellow tint. I was looking for a more olive tone but didn’t see a clear option.
I will probably try a different foundation next time.
