Product Spotlight- Note Detox & Protect Foundation

Leave a Comment

Happy Friday Showstoppers!

This is the start of a new Beauty series called Product Spotlight.
Any new beauty products that I trial for a week or more will be reviewed on the blog if I feel they live up to the hype.

I'm kicking it off today with a foundation I've heard so many good things about from pretty much everyone that wears makeup and in particular, professional makeup artists.

SO, naturally I've been curious myself to see what all the fuss is about.

Note Beauty has an entire range of foundations to suit different skin types but one that I have heard the most hype about has been their Detox & Protect liquid foundation. This is a favourite among the whole beauty Influencer crowed and seems to get a big thumbs up to use as a bridal foundation aswell.

About the foundation:

  • Available in 24 shades
  • Medium to full coverage formula
  • Provides SPF 15 Sun Protection
  • Provides nourishment to the skin with powerful anti-oxidants to protect from environmental stress
  • Cruelty free, Paraben free, Gluten free and Vegan friendly
  • Dermatologically tested


The packaging is a simple sleek black box with a nice basic pump bottle and I love that you can see the shade of the foundation through the bottle with the bottom and the lid being black. I always like this type of bottle so that I can see how much product is left in the tube and when I'm working with a makeup client I can easily see which shades I'm grabbing.

Key Ingredients:

This foundation contains Vitamin E which is great at helping to protect your skin against environmental stress and it also contains Sweet Almond Oil which i personally love to see in my products.  this is because it really helps to nourish and moisturise your skin and in my opinion this ingredient works really well in this foundation in helping it to glide on to the skin and create a lovely satin finish.

How does it wear during the day?

I have been testing this foundation for over a week now and have been wearing it all day and well into the evening. I have found that it wears REALLY well. There had been a few tiny dodgy areas around my nose by the very end of the night as I do tend to have a dryer skin type but it literally was only showing at the end of the night when I was ready to take it off. Usually foundations bunch up around my dry spots about an hour into wearing them so I was very impressed with how it lasted on my skin.

Note Beauty claim that this particular foundation is suited to all skin types but I have heard from others that its more suited to a combination skin type rather than someone who's main concern is dryness. It has worked a charm on me so I am more than happy to keep using it and I will definitely buy it in a range of shades for my makeup kit. It looks gorgeous on the skin and you can achieve full coverage but still have it looking like a polished version of your actual skin. Which is all I ever want in a foundation. I hate the full throttle heavy look but I know that's a trend on Instagram and I would say if you wanted that sort of full extreme coverage, you can definitely achieve it with this by doing an extra layer or using a more dense foundation brush.

What does it smell of?

It smells of baby powder actually. It has a nice fresh smell to it and it just reminded me straight away of baby powder.

The verdict:

I really like it! It gets a thumbs up from me 100% and the price point is fantastic for all that this foundation achieves.
It retails for only £14.15 on the website and then I payed a delivery fee to have it delivered to my door which wasn't much but you can also find it in stockists such as Clear Pharmacy in Lurgan and BTY cosmetics in Belfast. You can find a full list of stockists on the Note Beauty UK website to find a stockist closest to your area.
I really love how it looks on my skin and although I still haven't found a foundation that beats the Arbonne Perfecting Liquid foundation that I've been using in my kit for YEARS, this is the next best thing and at a much nicer price point.
