Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Essence Fresh & Fit Healthy Glow Foundation.
I always love to find new affordable foundations and I feel like with this one essence really stepped up its game. For a 5$ foundation, this looks NICE. The only problem is that as always with Essence foundations there aren’t many shades.
The description says: “Enriched with vitamins and cranberry water, this makeup base awakens the skin and provides a healthy look. With pigments that reflect light to a smooth and glowing complexion”.
You can get the Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Foundation here for about 6$ and it comes in four shades. I have shade 20 Fresh Nude.
The bottle is made of glass and it has a pump. It contains 30ml of product which is pretty standard for a foundation.
I’m not the biggest fan of the glass bottle: it looks nice and fancy but I’m personally incredibly clumsy so I’m always scared to break it.
I appreciate the pump as it’s really sanitary.
FORMULA & COVERAGE
The formula is quite thick, it has medium-high coverage. The finish is natural, it looks just like skin and looks very smooth on the skin.
Something that really impressed me is how it glides on the skin, it looks so natural on but my face looks incredibly smooth and poreless but like I’m not wearing anything.
A little goes a long way with this one.
This foundation looks amazing on my skin, I love how natural the finish is, it looks like your skin but better.
It can get a bit heavy and cakey if you use too much
My favourite way to apply it’s dabbing it with my fingers on the face and then blend it with a damp sponge, I find that it makes the foundation mesh with the skin beautifully.
The shade 20 matches me perfectly which is quite impressive since there are only four shades. I’m lucky.
This foundation lasts for 4 hours without blotting it.

I like this foundation, it’s perfect for day to day life if you want a full-coverage product that is not too matt. I like the satin finish but I personally prefer less coverage. I also like the packaging despite the fact that I’m always afraid to break it but I love the pump. The shade range sucks.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
