Unfortunately, I can’t comment on the packaging of this product, as I only received a few sample sachets of the foundation along with sample sachets of the matching anti-ageing primer.
Dr Lewinn’s Skin Perfect Anti-Ageing Primer is an opaque, white and was a lot thinner (more liquid) than some other face primers that I’ve tried in the past and did not feel silicone based; there was no silky smooth feel to my skin after I’d applied it. It had a similar consistency and feel to a serum (very much like L’Oreal’s Youth Code Serum) and was absorbed into the skin quickly.
I tried Dr Lewinn’s Skin Perfect Anti-Ageing Foundation in “Beige” and was glad to see that it contains an SPF15 for added sun protection. The colour range is very limited, there are only 6 beige-based shades to choose from, so you may end up having to mix-and-match to get a colour closest to your natural skin tone.
Even though this is a liquid foundation, a primer definitely needs to be used as it dries quickly once applied and feels very matte and not moisturising at all.
I tried various ways of applying this foundation; using my fingers, a foundation brush and a cosmetic wedge and found that no matter which I used, the foundation still went a little patchy especially around my eyebrows, nose, mouth and hairline when I tried blending it out. It would also go patchy in areas that required extra foundation to cover blemishes, dark circles, etc.
Personally, I would not purchase this product and would not recommend it anyone with dry, normal or combination skin as it can feel quite drying on the skin. It is a good product for someone with oily, blemish-free skin, as a single layer of foundation can be applied with little to no patchiness. Once you start adding more to conceal blemishes, it does start to look patchy and uneven.
Overall, I found this product to be quite disappointing. The foundation had a nice smell and wonderful matte finish, but it did not provide the “youthful glow” as promised and instead left me looking slightly orange, as the beige-based colour has a very warm undertone.
