Hey guys!

It's spring time here in the UK, we've been spoiled with loads of sunshine lately. I hope you have got your daily vitamin D dose, because I've definitely got mine!
Today I want to talk about make up product, which benefits your skin. I have been contacted by lovely people from Bioeco (lithuanian organic cosmetic retailer) to try La Mav brand mineral foundation. And being a huge fan of natural cosmetics I thought why not. La Mav is australian make up and skin care brand known for selling products free from harsh chemicals, organic and cruelty free. They kindly sent me Anti-ageing mineral foundation*. Let's see what La Mav says about this product:

I must say, the description sounds amazing. The awesome thing is that this foundation will not clog your pores. Now, I haven't been using the product long enough to say it has improved my skin, but it definitely didn't caused any break outs which is amazing, as I have very sensitive skin. Another cool thing is that it contains SPF15, so you don't need to worry about sun rays damaging your skin.

I am more of liquid foundation girl and this was something different for me. I have acne prone skin, so I like good coverage in my foundation to hide the blemishes and pimples. La Mav foundation has light coverage and it would look amazing on those people with perfect skin. If I would decide to wear this product on its own, I would have to apply concealer to cover my imperfections as this would only reduce the visibility a little bit. Another thing I've noticed and wasn't impressed by is how it emphasized my pores. I have large pores, so the last thing I want is for them to be seen when I'm wearing make up. BUT with pore minimizing primer beforehand this problem would be solved. This foundation gives you nice matte finish and it makes my skin look like I just got back from holiday with a healthy looking tan. Powder does not sit in dry patches and it absorbs oily areas quite well, so it's suitable for all skin types. However, it is not one of my 'every day' products, as I mentioned above I like more coverage to hide all imperfections. But this will be in my make up bag when I will be going on holiday for that natural sun kissed look.

The powder is very fine milled and blends super easy. The packaging is very simple and travel friendly. So overall I like this product and will be using it for 'no make up' make up days. I would highly recommend for those people who have less problems with their skin than I do. This mineral foundation retails for $34.95 which is around £24 I guess. For lithuanian buyers you can purchase this and many more organic products from here and the rest of my readers La Mav can be found here.
