Is it just me, or are foundation product names too long? It took me forever just to write down what product I was reviewing! Anyway, I’ve been trying out the Physicians Formula Organic Wear foundation and I have a few thoughts and my review on it. I always promise to be completely fair with my reviews – even though I get recommendations from others, these opinions are all my own. So without further ado, here is my Physicians Formula Organic Wear Silk Foundation Elixir review!
This product claims to be hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, dermatologist approved, clinically tested, cruelty-free, and vegan. That’s a lot for a product claim! I originally bought this foundation because Physicians Formula’s new Organic Wear line is sustainably created. I love the environment and I’ll do anything I can to do my part in helping it. Here’s a post I wrote on easy ways to become environmentally conscious. A definite pro for me is that this product is sustainable.
It comes in a glass bottle. Another environmentally friendly thing! It did come shipped in plastic wrap in a box, but I’m more okay with that since the product and packaging are sustainable.
It’s (relatively) inexpensive. This product retails for $15.99. In my mind, this is slightly more expensive that a typical drugstore foundation, but also cheaper than a higher-end foundation. Foundation is one of the products I’m willing to pay a bit more for, since I’ll be wearing it all over my face all day. So, I appreciate the mid-range price tag of this.
It has an easy applicator. This product comes with a dropper applicator. I find this much easier to use than a pump or open applicator.
This foundation has sheer coverage. You might really like this aspect of it! However, I found that it was too sheer to use with a makeup sponge, and I just used my hands.
The formula is runny. Along with being sheer, it’s very liquidy. Like, run down your face as you’re applying it liquidy. I like a thicker, more medium coverage foundation, and this reminded me more of a BB or CC cream than a foundation.
Although I could find more pros with this product than cons, the formula just isn’t right for me (find my favorites here). I love so many things about it, but it doesn’t give me the coverage I need. I ended up adding more concealer on top of this foundation. Before purchasing, I definitely recommend deciding what type of coverage you want. If you like sheer, then this might be the one for you!
If you’ve tried it, what did you think of this foundation?
