Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder – 53 Light Beige

Recently I purchased four Bourjois products, one of them was Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder in the shade 53 Light Beige. I was never really a fan of compact powders and rarely used them. But this product really surprised me with all the benefits it has. Read on to find out more.

Description of the product (as given on Boots website)
Get your balance right with Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder. Our unifying powder evens out your skin, reduces shine and boosts the radiance of your complexion for up to 10 hours, all whilst taking care of your skin.
How do we do this? We’ve enriched our foundation compact with an Asian fruit therapy formula to restore balance to the skin: the Sharon fruit smoothes and moisturises dry areas, whilst Yuzu fruit absorbs excess shine. Our clever formula means our compact face powder also has an ultra-fine, blendable texture that won’t interfere with other make-up, and provide a light and undetectable finish on your skin.
Plus, our compact powder includes a handy large mirror, meaning you can achieve the perfect make-up result wherever! Available in 4 natural shades (Vanille, Beige Clair, Beige Fonce, Hale Clair), you can find the best powder foundation shade for you. Put the joie de vivre back into your skin with Bourjois.
Our Healthy Balance Compact Powder:
• Is enriched with Sharon fruit to moisturise dry skin and Yuzu fruit to absorb excess shine
• Is non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog pores
• Uses a hypoallergenic formula
• Is dermatologically tested.


My oily skin doesn’t like heavy oily sunscreens. It makes my face look so oily just after applying. But in the hot sunny weather during summers, sunscreen lotions are unavoidable. To help my skin look a little less oily, I used Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder and oh my god…..I fell in love with it. It instantly mattifies the face without a hint of oil on the face. This shade (53 Light Beige) is a little dark for my complexion but its fine with me.

The product claims of 10 hours matte finish and healthy natural glow.  This compact powder stands true to its claim. Although it doesn’t keep my skin matte for 10 long hours but yes, my face remains matte for 4-5 hours. It does impart a natural glow to my face.

It comes with a mirror which is quite convenient for touch ups.

Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder – 53 Light Beige. It comes with a mirror you can touch up easily anywhere.

I apply this compact powder after sunscreen to mattify my face. I am not too sure about the moisturizing properties of the product which it claims, and I don’t even care about it. After all, I will use a moisturizer rather than a compact for that purpose.

Overall, I love this product and would recommend it to all the oily skin beauties.

I would give this product 4.5/5 stars.

Take care and keep blinging.
