I know that online shopping has been a thing for years but there’s something about a catalogue that really draws me in. Today, I’m going give you an honest AVON foundation review from their White Essence variant.
Let it be known that the score I will give is based on my experience. My post is not sponsored. However, take everything with a grain of salt. What may work for me may not work for you.
AVON Foundation Review: White Essence by Amanda of Filipinow
The box that the product is contained in is very appealing. I like black because it exudes a premium feel. I have nothing bad to say about the overall look.
Even the glass bottle that the AVON White Essence Foundation used has a very sexy shape. Also comes with a hygienic pump and a non-messy transparent sticker label.
Have the whitening power of Glutathione in your foundation. New True Color White Essence Foundation is powered with Glutathione and 89% skincare ingredients which formulated to whiten skin from underneath the surface over time so you can enjoy the benefits of having brighter looking skin, and after 4 weeks, even without foundation on.
I just copied the above paragraph from the box. Don’t blame me for the mistakes.
On to the more important aspect of the AVON foundation review…
Scent of the product is very off-putting. Imagine a whiff of crayons coupled with baby powder that were left under the sun for a week. Mas mabango pa ang chin chun su mare! If you know how an Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation smells like, make it worse
Since the AVON White Essence Foundation offers SPF 50+/PA+++ Glutathione, expect it to be very sticky. Consistency is of thick liquid (not quite creamy yet) which offers a tacky feeling right after application. However, tackiness dies down in a matter of minutes.
Definitely not light-weight and will make you feel like you slathered Nivea Crème on your face.
Coverage is very bad and you have to build the pigment up which will leave you with a heavier feeling overtime.
I love the idea that it is more of a skincare product but I wish that they could’ve labeled it BB Cream or CC Cream instead of foundation.
A foundation’s job is to cover up imperfections and this is simply not it.
I actually got the foundation because I wanted to try their lipstick which originally costs 350+ PHP and buying this dragged the lipstick’s price down to 99 PHP.
AVON Foundation Review: White Essence Final Words
Efficacy (as a foundation): 1/5
Price: 1/5 (not worth the money)
Retails at 299PHP, a complete waste.
Although a good SPF product, I highly recommend for you to just buy better sunscreens available in the Philippines.
