The product

Ever get that sinking feeling that you’re undoing all the efforts of your skin care products when you slather on your foundation in the morning before work? Honestly, same. 

But it turns out we should be stressing less. Max Factor Miracle Pure Skin Improving Foundation is an innovative formula that’s infused with over 80 per cent skin care ingredients to effectively bridge the gap between your skin care and makeup routines. 

We’re talking about a slew of plumping and firming inclusions, such as hydrating hyaluronic acid and radiance-enhancing vitamin C, that work for your skin rather than against it. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this skin care-infused foundation.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Max Factor Miracle Pure Skin Improving Foundation to a panel of women aged 25 and older who experience redness, ageing skin, enlarged pores or dry skin, and want a light-to-medium foundation.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Max Factor Miracle Pure Skin Improving Foundation.

The skin care ingredient-infused formula: Reviewers really liked that the foundation formula consisted of over 80 per cent skin care ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and vitamin C.

How hydrating it was: Many of the Review Crew® members noted how hydrating the foundation formula was, saying it helped to minimise any potential dryness or cakey-looking makeup throughout the day. 

The lightweight finish: Even though the formula is technically a foundation, members found that it was more comparable to a BB cream because of the infusion of skin care ingredients and the lightweight finish on skin. 

The verdict

“This has now become my everyday foundation. It gives light coverage and it applies like a moisturiser. It truly feels like a skincare product more than a make-up product. Additionally, it lives up to its claim of moisturising because it contains hyaluronic acid and it has SPF30, making it perfect for use in summer. I am very happy with the colour match with my complexion. Although this foundation is very light coverage, it does a good job covering the dark spots on my skin.”

“I was very happy with this skin improving foundation. The coverage was a bit lighter than I’m used to, but I decided to embrace it and use it for a no-makeup makeup look. It evened out my skin and gave me a nice dewy look that had me glowing but not in an over the top way… with Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid it’s a safe bet to say this is a good product for your skin! Mine looked pretty happy to me!”

“Max Factor Miracle Pure Skin Improving Foundation is a lovely and unique hybrid foundation that is made with coconut milk for hydration that lasts all day and makes your skin feel soft and plump. The lightweight formula is easy to blend and smooths over pores and provides light and airy coverage and a finish that looks like skin. This foundation is suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin and would work for most people who like a nice, even and light coverage that doesn't look cakey.”
