Today I'd like to talk abut two different foundations from Thalgo - The BB Cream Perfect Glow and the Silicium Anti-Ageing Foundation. 

First up is the Thalgo BB Cream, which offers a light coverage, however still manages to even out and soften minor imperfections and irregularities thanks to containing coated pigments, although I do feel that a concealer is necessary to cover up darker pigmentation, age spots and those dark circles under my eyes. And it leaves my skin looking more even toned, with a velvety finish and a healthy natural radiant glow.

The BB Cream contains among others Seve Marine, an algae that acts to repair the skin barrier and restore and maintain optimum moisture levels. It also contains chondrus crispus which is another algae, rich in proteins and vitamins to moisturise and regenerate the skin. It is thus a very moisturising formula, and it therefore feels so lovely on the skin, and when you remove it at night, it almost feels like you've just taken off a moisture mask. It does, unfortunately also for my skin mean that I do have to touch it up half-way through the day when my skin gets too greasy looking, but on the other hand, I'm pretty used to that!

I really enjoy using this Thalgo BB Cream as a casual everyday makeup, on the days I don't need to be too made up, and I love that it cares for my skin while I wear it, and also offers SPF15 for some protection against the sun's rays. And it also has the most gorgeous fresh scent.

Next up is the Thalgo Silicium Foundation, which is a multi-tasking product combining anti-ageing ingredients with makeup. It contain among others redensifying marine silicium and hyaluronic acid complemented by radiance-enhancing pigments, provides an optical correction of wrinkles and other skin imperfections.

The foundation promises to feel smoother and over time, gradually also visibly firmer and more toned. I don't wear makeup every single day, and I do swap and change a bit, and consequently I also am yet to see any permanent improvement to my skin and any decrease in wrinkles from using this foundation.

That said, I do love the immediate effect and look it gives my skin. It easily covers imperfections, age spots, blemishes and redness, yet still has such a light formula that my skin is looking natural and with a nice glow. Used with a primer first, it has a long wear, and I only need to powder my t-zone area mid-day otherwise it stays put all day, without changing colour, sliding or settling into those fine lines. Unfortunately it doesn't smell quite as lovely as the BB Cream, but even so it has a subtle typical foundation scent. And unfortunately it also doesn't seem to contain SPF, which would have been ideal. On the other hand I do like that it comes in a stylish glass bottle with a convenient pump.

For women who are after a multi-purpose product that targets wrinkles while giving a smoothing finished to their complexion.

Thalgo Anti-Aging Foundation gives a glow for a natural-looking result in every light. Its anti-aging action meets the needs of mature skin making it gradually appear firmer, smoother and velvety-soft. Its indulgent texture, rich in redensifying marine silicium and hyaluronic acid complemented by radiance-enhancing pigments, provides an optical correction of wrinkles and other skin imperfections. The complexion appears flawless and the skin remains smooth all day long.

I really enjoy using this Silicium Foundation and the fact that it actually cares for my ageing skin while I use it, it simply makes my complexion more even and my skin look smoother, as if a few years have been shaved off my face, and for that it deserves extra bonus points!

But overall, I really like both the BB Cream and the Silicium Foundation, and pending the situation, I know I will be reaching for both in the coming months.
