issue four : the magician

There is no shortage of untainted skincare on the market. Everywhere you go these days, facial oils and serums are on display. It’s as though a new range pops up on a daily basis. When it comes to foundations however, there is no denying that advanced untainted formulas are far and few between. Don’t get me wrong, I can confidently say that there are many incredible untainted foundations out there, but none quite like this one. I have been coveting the Gressa range for quite some time and recently had the opportunity to try it out for our latest editorial shoot. The results were, quite literally, breathtaking. While it’s not exactly turning another metal into gold, this foundation is nothing short of pure alchemy. An oily serum at first glance, that magically turns powdery on the skin.

It is a lightweight but buildable, medium to full coverage foundation. What I found most incredible of all is that only a single drop is needed. Obviously, a single drop is only going to offer a light application, but rest assured, it’s enough to show off your majestic skin, flawlessly. If you feel you need more coverage, 3 drops should do the trick. A little really goes a long way.

And while you are flaunting your best face to the world (and trust me when I say, you will want too), this potion is still working its magic and taking care of your skin. In time, a single drop will be all you need.

The best part is that there is a shade for every skin tone. There are 8 shades in total, ranging from Snow White (fair) to Princes Tiana (dark). No matter the colour or skin, we all deserve an equal opportunity to experience this fairytale potion.

Tip

Start with a single drop on the back of your hand. Apply to well moisturised skin, first to the area around the nose, the centre of the forehead and cheeks and blend with fingers and blend. You can use a damp blending sponge to blend it if you prefer.
