Day 2059 - Product Review Thalgo Silicium

Thalgo anti-ageing foundation


When it comes to my foundation I'm a bit of a creature of habit.  Up until recently I'd been using the Estee Lauder Futurist make-up for YEARS.  In recent times I've trialed a number of different foundations and been suitably impressed with what's on offer.

The PR Company recently sent me Thalgo Silicium Anti-Ageing Foundation (radiance corrector).  I've been using it for a week.

All I can say is YES.



I have to be honest. Until I received this package in the mail I'd never heard of Thalgo.

Well, I must have been under a rock because Thalgo has been around for over 40 years.  Apparently they have been at the forefront of international spa therapy. They're most well known for their cosmetic research and formulation of Marine Algae and are regarded as "the mastery of the sea".

Interesting!

They explore the riches of marine life to extract mineral-rich ingredients that, together with plant concentrates and proteins, form the basis of all Thalgo products.

OK, I'm listening ...

So now that I've seen the Thalgo profile, this Thalgo Silium Anti-Ageing Foundation is looking even more appealing.

They says it's a hybrid formula that combines the essential powers of Marine Silicium and biomimetic pigments, for a perfectly evened skin tone that is firmer, softer and smoother to the touch.

YES.

I can honestly say that my skin does feel firmer, softer and smoother PLUS I feel that my skin tone looks more even.

The product profile suggests that it counteracts signs of ageing with plumping properties, complexion enhancing ingredients and radiance boosting pigments.

YES.

I am all for counteracting the signs of ageing and enhancing the complexion! Bring it on.

Apparently there is no need for touch ups as the formula melts under the fingers leaving a powdery finish and a velvety feel. They say there is lasting coverage with impeccable staying power.

YES.

I have been applying this foundation first thing in the morning and over the last week (which has included a very busy schedule of long days and night time commitments) I have not had to retouch my foundation at all throughout the day. Not even the nose! It definitely has staying power and it definitely appears velvety.

The best news is that a little bit goes a long way.  I only had to put a small squirt onto my hand and it covered my entire face.



They say for a more even and smoother application it's best to warm the foundation with your hands/fingertips first and then apply it to the forehead, cheeks and neck (avoiding fine lines and wrinkles).  You then blend from the inside of the face outwards in upward lifting movements to open up the face and eyes.

Well, I don't know about that.  That all sounds a bit fancy and highly technical to me. I just slap it on and it seems to do the trick.

If you're interested in giving Thalgo a try, I highly recommend it. It is definitely something I would now buy for myself.

It comes in three shades:  Opal to illuminate the fairest skin tones, Natural (which I use) to enhance fair complexions, and Amber to give a warm glow to darker skin tones.



The fancy thing about this foundation is that the combination of natural, super fine mineral pigments apparently creates an affinity with any skin tone for a flawless finish.  They say that light will even be brought to the shadowy areas of the face, optically enhancing skin brightness for a youthful glow.

I don't know about all that, but I do know that I feel great wearing it and I feel confident that my skin looks amazing (and younger) when I use it.

I don't often give you a close up ... especially one that is untouched ... but this is 100% straight from the camera without any airbrushing. 


So I say YES.

If you're Deep Fried like me that I'd definitely give the Thalgo Silicium Angi-Ageing Foundation a whirl.

It's available at leading salons and spas nationwide now (released this month).  It costs around $73.00 a bottle (which is around the same price as my Estee Lauder Futurist foundation used to cost me). For stockists you can call 02 9430 2200 or head to www.Thalgo.com.au 

Note: I don't say YES to everything that is sent my way.  If I don't like it, I don't write about it.  The products you see here are the products I genuinely like to use.  They are the products I recommend to help you stay fit, fabulous and positive in your 40s.

  2. Our local beauty salon uses thalgo products. I haven't bought any myself, but my mum is a big fan. I know what you mean about being a creature of habit. I've used Napoleon foundation for years and recently changed to Loreal. It was leaving my skin way too tight, so I swapped for MAC and am slowly getting used to the change.

  5. I've been using Arbonne foundation for years - buy it from a friend who is an Arbonne consultant. I love it! But - I don't think it has any anti-aging properties in it. I had never heard of Thalgo. It's a bit more expensive than my Arbonne {$55} but I'll definitely look into it! :-)

  6. I love that you don't have to reapply. I find most foundations simple are barely there by mid afternoon. Great post. Good to know what Thalgo does!

  7. Ha - a girl of my own heart, I just slap mine on too!

    1. I have to admit that the slapping on doesn't always have the best results. What looks good in the light of the bathroom can look not so great in the very unforgiving rear-view mirror of the car on a bright sunny day. The car mirror can be a bugger like that. Although it is good for plucking out chin hairs ...

  8. I'm just scraping the bottom of my foundation and have been looking for something that would hide the fine lines not accentuate them. This sounds perfect.

    1. I'm impressed with it that's for sure. There's quite a few good ones on the market at the moment ...

  9. I'm afraid I'm very deep fried after living in Nth Qld. My friend who was a beautician swears by Thalgo. Can I tear myself away from my Revlon One Step? Maybe :)
