Review: By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Foundation

The fabulous Terry de Gunzburg has released another new product, again with a slightly silly name.  Terrybly Densiliss is a serum/foundation hybrid, which combines a fluid foundation with an anti-wrinkle serum.  According to the clinical trials, Terry's subjects found that their skin looked 10 years younger after using the foundation continuously for sixty days.  Impressive stuff, particularly given that it was tested on women aged 40 - 60, instead of on fresh faced 20 - 30 year olds.

Anyway, on to the before and after photos.

On the left, I am a bit red faced, hot and sweaty, and looking more than a little flustered.  On the right, I'm still flustered, but my skintone has been evened out, and my skin has a lovely semi-matte radiant finish.

And here's a photo when I'm wearing more than just foundation, to save you from being distracted by my non-existent lashes and non-matching eyebrows.

I really like the finish that Densiliss gives - it has a decent level of coverage, but it still looks like natural skin, and it's sort of semi-matte and radiant without being too dewy.  It also feels incredibly silky when you apply it, and it blends like a dream.  Like many By Terry products, it is scented - it's not too overpowering, but you do notice it as you apply.

As for the skincare claims, I can't really comment on them.  I've been using Densiliss for the past couple of weeks, but I've not been using it every day (I tend to switch my foundation based on the weather, or my skin texture), so I can't say I've noticed much of a difference.  I'm definitely convinced that it keeps my skin hydrated and comfortable whilst I'm wearing it, but I can't say much more than that.

Let's get it out there - this foundation costs £75.  £75 is a lot of money to pay for a foundation, but perhaps the combination of foundation and serum in one means you could afford to skimp a bit on skincare serums you already use.  However - this only really works if you wear the foundation all day every day (and not if you change your foundation regularly, like I do).  So, unless you have the cash to splash out on a very high end foundation for the sake of its foundation performance, you're best off investing in this as part of your skincare regime - which means committing to applying it regularly.
