Review: Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder


As a person with combination skin, I’m always looking for a good mattifying powder. All the combination/oily skin girls want this but we know how much we hate it when we look too powdery, right?

Well, there is a solution to our problem and it’s called Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder! This product not only mattifies your skin, not only keeps you shine-free for hours but also makes your face look healthy and radiant. Honestly, I didn’t know anything about this powder, didn’t read any reviews before purchasing it, I just saw it one day and decided to buy it.

Everybody is still raving about the Healthy Mix serum and foundation, unfortunately I haven’t tried them but this powder deserves to be mentioned too because it’s just amazing.


The packaging is really cute as you can see, it’s super slim and there’s a full mirror inside so you can also carry the product with you for touch-ups during the day.

It’s a very soft and smooth pressed powder with a light and fresh fruity scent. It’s an Asian fruit therapy to rebalance and restore the skin (Kaki for hydration and Yuzu for anti-shine).

It applies very smooth and gives a good coverage. It’s not cakey at all, looks very natural and beautiful. For me it lasts about 6-7 hours without any touch-ups, I use a base/foundation before the powder and my Angelica Ultra Matte Fluid from L’Occitane before applying the base. I understand that all the steps are significant for the final result but still think that the powder really keeps you shine-free for a long time. Ok, maybe not for 10 hours but it’s definitely more than many of the mattifying powders out there. Plus, my face gets oily pretty quickly so this product really does a great job.

The only downside is that there are just 4 shades to choose from but I think 53 Light Beige is the perfect one for me. Also I’ll have to find how to repurchase it online from somewhere since we don’t have Bourjois products here in Norway.

Overall, I’m very impressed with this powder and it’s probably my favourite product at the moment.

Have you tried Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder and what’s your experience with it?
