Dr. Haushcka foundation good Vapour scented
This is beautiful foundation – I was lucky as the very fair colour blends perfectly with my natural tone. It feels great on. I have combination oily skin and it’s not slick or greasy. There is a slight scent (I think it’s geranium?) but it does fade after an hours and you really can’t smell it at all afterwards. I tried Vapour and loved it BUT there was a STRONG smell of Frankincense I think, and it was a huge turn off. So for me, finding Dr. H is perfect. I would go back to Vapour if they got rid of the scent as it is beautiful stuff.

Out of all of the foundation/face products I have tried from Saffron Rouge, so far this one is my favorite. It goes on smooth and light, and covers fairly well as long as you don’t have a ton of blemishes. I use the lightest shade and it doesn’t have any bad effects on my sensitive skin. I use the coordinating pressed powder for a finish and it’s absolutely lovely!

Nice, light foundation.
I have super fair skin and have trouble finding light enough products sometimes. I purchased the lightest colour of this foundation and it is a great colour match. It is VERY translucent though, and I prefer my mineral foundation if I am looking for more coverage, but this product is great for a beautiful, natural daytime look. It evens out tone well and seems to just disappear. Used with the Dr. Hauschka concealer stick for blemishes and something else for under the eyes, it is a great product.

Not for me
It might just be me, but I didn’t really care for this product. I found the texture to be chalky but it is possible that I had purchased the wrong colour for my complexion. Another issue for me was the strong scent, not worth it for me!

Ok, but a bit flat
I found this helped to hide inperfections. However, I agree with a previous reviewer that this makeup colour was fairly flat, and didn’t give my skin the healthy glow that I would like. I will be trying the Vapour brand next, and hope it will do the trick.

Moisturizing with a hint of spice!
I wish I could give this a 5, but it just doesn’t have enough coverage. I have very pale skin (MAC NC15, Vapour 100) and use the lightest shade (00). It definitely works for me, but it’s more of a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. That being said, I can honestly tell it’s good for my skin and I feel like I’m taking care of myself every time I apply it. It smells heavenly – almost with a touch of cinnamon. Lovely!

Best foundation I've used!
I’m very fair and have a hard time finding foundation that suits my combination skin – this product is great! I wear it as a light concealer under powder or over my whole face as a true foundation. It lasts a long time, has a great consistency, looks fresh and dewy and has a nice scent. It’s provides a light-medium coverage, so I just use a little Dr. H concealer (both the liquid and the stick are great for different purposes) and I’m good to go! Just be sure to blend quickly as I find it dries quick.

I like it allot!
I have Rosacea and very dry skin, I really like this make up, goes on smoothly and covers redness nicely and a little goes a long way! Very happy I found it!

Better than many foundations, but not as good as Vapour.
I liked this better than what I’d been using. However, my skin just didn’t have a healthy glow and look to it. This makeup was flat. I read the reviews for Vapour Soft Focus Foundation and tried it…and now Dr. Hauska Translucent Makeup sits in my drawer never to be used again. I never got compliments for the way I looked when using this product. But the compliments pour in daily when I started using the Vapour brand.

Just not right for me
This foundation is very sheer. A friend highly recommended it to me as she swears by it paired with Dr. Hauschka’s cover stick. I was excited to try the product and loved the scent! But I have really oily and acne prone skin. I’m also used to a lot of coverage and I just couldn’t get it with this foundation.
Achieve flawless skin and an even skin tone with this lightweight, easy to blend liquid foundation.
