And something else… look what I found in my stash!
I found a part-used Boots Botanics Firming Body Gel – this smells 100% fine, so I’ll use it up. It’s just enough for 2 two uses, so you’ll see this one again in the next Empties post. And I found a full bottle of those amazing Boots Botanics Hydrating Serum Capsules – JOY! And I found a tube of Boots’ Botanics Complexion Refining Clay Mask. This was my go-to clay mask before it was discontinued, so I’m happy that I found another tube in my stash!
And this is it for this week. I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Hi there! Today’s post is about Oriflame’s Giordani Gold Mineral Therapy Foundation in Natural Beige. I’ve had this sample for quite some time. And I haven’t been keen on giving this foundation a try. That’s because, based on my experience, those ‘natural beige’ shades are usually way too dark for me (I’m a pale redhead). However, I’m making an effort to use the products I already have – and that includes all those samples too!
Now onto the review! The first thing I noticed was that 3ml is a lot of product for a foundation sample. Wow! The second thing I noticed was that the shade of this liquid foundation wasn’t really a natural beige – it was more of an orangey shade. But that was OK. It was a Sunday, I didn’t have to go anywhere, and so I just applied the foundation…
Then I took a really close look in the mirror, and I was ready to wash my face again! My face looked orange – but that wasn’t even the main issue. The main issue was that this foundation didn’t provide any coverage at all. I didn’t even look like I was wearing make-up. I looked like I had slathered my face in carrot oil. Ridiculous!
But since I wanted to give this foundation a chance, I left it on for the entire day. I must say that I expected the foundation to settle into the fine lines, and I was sure it would highlight dry patches – but it didn’t. And it actually felt nice on my skin. Now, I make room for the possibility that I helped by not applying powder, but who knows? And who cares? I certainly don’t because this foundation doesn’t cover anything at all, so I wouldn’t buy it anyway!
Oriflame’s Giordani Gold Mineral Therapy Foundation has been renamed. It’s current name is Oriflame Giordani Gold Long Wear Mineral Foundation. It’s available as 30ml for £18.
