Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder / Review

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in 52 Vanilla

Drugstore powder is usually the one makeup item that I try to stay away from. I’ve tried a bunch in the past but none of them agreed with my skin, so I learnt my lesson – for face powders go for high-end. At least that was the case before I got introduced to the ah-mazing Bourjois Healthy Balance powder (here) a few months ago. Some say it’s a dupe for the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk powder, I would say that it really reminds me of Chanel Les Beiges, but either way – this stuff is incredible! Its extremely fine and soft texture helps the powder glide on the skin like charm and the old ‘powdery face’ days are way behind us with this gem. Healthy Balance is aimed at giving matte, yet luminous and healthy glow to the skin, without adding much coverage. Check and check!

The powder is almost translucent and blends seamlessly into the skin, which makes it the perfect concealer partner. I got the shade 52 Vanilla, which is a bit too light for me at the moment but due to the sheer coverage it’s all perfect. Healthy Balance is one of the finest setting powders I’ve tried, because it is almost undetectable on the skin, it feels super lightweight and it locks the makeup for some good 8-10 hours. The very thing that captured my heart with this beauty, however, was the finish. When I swirl my brush around my face I instantly see how my skin sort of blurs and I am left with stunning airbrushed complexion with no fine lines or pores in sight. Brilliant. The best part though is the fact that even though being matte, my skin has that healthy, radiant glow, which we all know and love. Moral of the story? There are indeed drugstore face powders that work wonders and this beauty is the living proof.

Have you ever tried Bourjois Healthy Balance powder? Which is your favorite face powder?

Lots of love,


  1. I love this powder and use it every day! It's so natural looking.

  2. Chanel Les Beiges is one of my favourite beauty products so I'd be intrigued to try this and see how it compares.


  3. I need to try this! I avoid powder pretty much all the time, because I hate the matte look. I'm still at school so I try to avoid looking to made up at my age and much prefer a more natural look. Powders and the matte look always look cakey and horrible, but it sounds like this is much more 'natural' friendly! xx

  4. I tried this a couple years ago when it first came out and kinda forgot about it after using it all up. I'll have to pick it up again next time I'm in Boots!

  5. I tried this powder a few years ago along with the foundation and I never really loved it but maybe it's worth giving it another try. I am loving the Revlon Photo Ready powder at the moment.


  6. Les Beiges dupe? thats a first! Its mostly sold out here at the counters so I haven't been able to try it! your review sort of explains why!

  21. I keep hearing such great raves about this powder, i think it's about time i finally indulge and give it a try! Shaaanxo uses it quite a lot in her Youtube videos and she always looks amazing! I think you are totally right, i think it would make a great dupe for Chanel Les Beiges!

  22. This sounds really lovely!


  23. Thanks for the great review, I'm tempted to pick one up next time I'm in Boots.




  24. I LOVE this stuff. It's the only powder I use from the drugstore. Always in some kind of 3 for 2 offer aswell :) xx

  25. I am also quite fond of this little number. I just can't get enough of its fine texture. A great discovery for me as well.

  26. I hadn't heard of this before, I think I might need to give it a go! I use the Rimmel Stay Matte powder all of the time but I don't LOVE it. Bourjous products never disappoint either! xx
