Review: Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation

I have been taking really good care of my skin of late. Here are some posts about my skin care routine if you are interested:

Skincare routine

Updated skincare routine: Winter specific

Latest addition to my skincare: Kiehl's Vitamin C serum

Due to this, I find I don't have to use heavy or full coverage foundations anymore. Recently I started using the Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation in shade LF4 in the center of my face and LF5 around my mouth where I am darker and on my forehead. Using two shades sort of softly contours my face as well. If you dont have the darker problem areas like me, you can just use one shade.

I am so happy with the finish - it's not dewy or matte or shiny - just looks glowy and natural with a lovely sheen. Do I make sense?

The foundation is almost like a tinted moisturizer, will a little more coverage than a normal tinted moisturiser. But its not medium to full coverage at.

 It retails for $28. From the sephora website:

What it is:A lightweight, water-based foundation that is packed with vitamins to balance the skin.

What it does:Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation provides sheer to medium buildable coverage, a creamy finish, and SPF 10 UVA/UVB Broad Spectrum sun protection. This brand favorite contains ginger to tone and clarify with Antioxidant Vitamins C and E to prevent visible signs of aging.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Mineral Oils
- Petro-chemicals
- Propylene Glycols
- Ethanolomines
- GMOs
- Synthetic Dyes
- Synthetic Fragrances

I love how it's without parabens and other chemicals which I am trying to reduce in my products anyway.

Have you tried this product before? If yes, what were your experiences?

What's your favorite foundation for summer?

I didn't even know that Korres made foundation. I have only tried their face primer (I like this a lot. When I use up the primer in my pro kit I may buy the Korres one). Oh, and based on your review, I managed to buy Lakme eye kohl on eBay, and I totally love it! I am so thrilled that I now own it! Thank you for posting info about Indian cosmetics!

when you use concealers around your mouth, which one do you use?Do you go above or under the foundation?

You had a lovely post on concealers for under eye. It was immensely helpful.Could you do the same for around the mouth as well--comparing various concealers vs foundation--like how you use here?

I bought the dior concealer for undereye( same shade as yours) and it is very easy and almost a perfect shade. I can't thank you enough.Could you please do the same for around the mouth as well?

Also, what foundations would be good for India - not too heavy, do not transfer when sweating etc? Does a primer help for staying put? I'd appreciate a reply. Thank you.
