Natural Foundation Review | Vapour Organic Beauty

Hunting for a natural foundation that works as well as regular drugstore or high-end foundations is hella hard to find. Some common problems are finding the right shade, the right coverage and something that can actually last for a whole 8+ hour workday. The foundation struggle is real with natural brands.

Natural Foundation Review | Vapour Organic Beauty – Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation

If you’re a regular reader of my website (Yay!) then you probably recognize this photo from my Eco Diva Natural Makeup Haul Post. Although I didn’t go into great detail about my thoughts and feelings on this foundation – I’m sure that you gathered it is pretty darn good!

Today I’m going to dive into the pros and cons of this product and give you a (hopefully) very in-depth and honest review.

First, let’s Start with the price. The Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation is regularly $68.00 CAD. However it looks like Eco Diva currently has a sale on for $47.60 CAD. Therefore it is one of the more pricey options – especially when you can purchase a bottle of foundation at the drugstore for $10.00.

In my opinion the price is pretty justifiable because you aren’t getting cheap filler ingredients with this product like you most likely find in a drugstore product.

Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation Ingredients

  • Organic Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil. Extracted from the seeds of the Camellia Olefiera Plant. This oil is a great moisturizer + pH balancer.
  • Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil. Extracted from the seeds of a Sunflower. This oil is another great moisturizer + emollient (soothes skin.)
  • Silica. Sand. Most likely used as a bulking agent.
  • Mica. Another form of sand, it is used for colour.
  • Isocetyl Stearoyl Stearate.* A naturally occurring fatty acid found in vegetables + animals. It is used for skin conditioning and to control viscosity.
  • Organic Cera Alba (Beeswax). Used as a skin-conditioning agent and as an emulsifier.
  • Essential Oils and Natural Fruit Essences. Natural Fragrances.
  • Wildcrafted Boswellia Carteri (Frankincense) Gum. Most likely used as a fragrance ingredient.
  • Organic Ocimum Sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil) Leaf Extract. A naturally occurring preservative and skin conditioner.
  • Organic Nelumbo Nucifera (Lotus) Leaf Extract. Most likely used as a skin-conditioner.
  • [+/—: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77492, 77499)] *Eco-Cert

This foundation has no unnecessary fillers unlike the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation which I reviewed wayyy back in 2015! Of the 10 ingredients in this foundation none of them rated higher than a 2/10 on EWG’s Skin Deep website, whereas the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation has 45 ingredients and rated a 9/10. You can be the judge of what you’d rather pay for.

Before + After Application of the Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation s110.

Are you ready to see my naked face? Okay…

The morning that I took pictures for this review I woke up with a very lovely red bump on my cheek. Luckily it actually works out because you can get a better idea of the coverage that this foundation has on very red skin. (That’s probably the only time I’ve been excited about getting a spot…)

Here’s a close up of that particular spot to show you how the coverage compares: (I said this was a thorough review…Sorry!)

before and after vapour organic beauty foundation

As you can see, the Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation (WHY DID THEY PICK SUCH A LONG NAME?) does help to cover up a bit of the redness, but it is still quite visible. Therefore I would label this foundation as a sheer-medium coverage depending on how much you build it up.  It will not leave your skin looking flawless in one application, so don’t expect miracles. 

Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation Shade Range

It can be extremely hard to find the right shade to match your skin with natural foundations. They generally turn out very yellow or don’t come in darker colours (I’m looking at you, Physician’s Formula!)

Luckily this foundation from Vapour Organic Beauty comes in decent shade range! They have 12 different shades ranging from very light to dark tones. I didn’t receive a sample before ordering… I just guessed my skin tone to be s110 (fair with pink undertones) which seems to fit really well.

How does the Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation Wear?

If you have well moisturized skin I’m sure it will wear really well. However, now that it is in the midst of winter my skin has been quite dry…which doesn’t bode well with any foundation really. I have found that the foundation will cling to dry patches of skin and look quite unattractive. On the rest of my face it does wear really well.

As long as your skin is not dry and patchy it will wear very well – lasting a whole 8+ hour workday. Especially if you set it with a translucent powder.

Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Soft Focus Foundation Review

Would I repurchase?

Without a doubt. This is the best natural foundation that I have tried. The price is definitely not cheap, but you do get what you pay for. You are avoiding plenty of nasty ingredients and putting natural oils which will benefit your skin on instead.

In the US? You can purchase the Soft Focus Foundation from Amazon.com for $50.00 

In Canada? You can purchase the Soft Focus Foundation From Eco Diva for $47.60 regularly $68.00 CAD (as of Jan 18, 2017)

What coverage of foundation do your prefer? Sheer, Medium or Full?

  • To answer your question, I prefer medium coverage foundations. I think they work the best with my skin. Also, I understand your struggled with natural foundations. They really don’t come in a lot of shades. Especially fair ones. Now this foundation sounds very lovely, quite an investment but all ingredients sound amazing to me.

    -Leta | The Nerdy Me

    • Yes, definitely an investment! But it’s nice that it’s not packed with cheap filler ingredients 🙂 Thanks for reading Leta!

  • I prefer medium coverage, but judging by the way it covers your freckles (which are beautiful) I think I would classify it as medium enough for my taste. And like promised it isn’t the least bit orange, but matches you perfectly.

    • It’s always so hard to tell what colour foundations are through the camera lens. But yes, it does a great job of covering up my freckles haha.

  • Natural foundations is one area that I have yet to delve into (I’m replacing products as I need them). This one sounds amazing and like it would be good for my combination skin. I like a medium coverage cause I have lots of redness in my face so I like to cover it up, but I find that full coverage looks too cakey on me. Judging by how this one covered up your red spot it looks like it would be good enough, and I can always build it up on my cheeks and chin. Definitely putting this one on my list.

    • It’s definitely a pricier option, but the fact that you aren’t getting a whole bunch of filler chemicals within it makes it worth it (in my opinion!) Definitely does a great job of covering redness. I hope that if you try it you love it as much as I do 🙂

  • I agree with Anne, your freckles are beautiful! And I adore the coverage and finish of this foundation. I might give it a try in the future but not anytime soon as I really, really, REALLY need to go on a spending ban.

    • LOL I need to stop myself from spending as well. After February I’m going to really cut back… If you do try it though, I hope you love it as much as I do 🙂

  • You have gorgeous skin! I prefer a full coverage so this wouldn’t be for me but it looks lovely on you!

  • The coverage looks lovely on you. It probably helps that your skin is nice to begin with. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this foundation. Finding a good natural foundation can be a challenge so it’s good to know that this one worked out well for you.

  • This looks really beautiful on you! Whenever I’m doing a foundation review I love when I wake up with a zit because it really does demonstrate the foundation so much better, haha. If only it would go away as soon as I was done taking pictures, lol.

    I usually prefer a sheer to medium coverage. My skin is decent so I don’t need full coverage, and I prefer to be able to build it up to the coverage I want, so I can put a light layer all over and just add a bit more over redness or blemishes. So the coverage of this foundation sounds pretty good to me! I definitely don’t need any more foundations these days, though, somehow I seem to have way too many at the moment.

    • Yes, exactly! That’s the only time I’ve ever been happy about waking up with a pimple lol. It’s so easy to gather foundations without realizing it! I know what you mean… sadly.

    This looks so natural on you, I like it 🙂

  • Lol it really sucks as a blogger when products have super long names. And for SEO purposes, ya gotta include the whole thing! I’m glad that this foundation worked out for you! I spotted it on the Free People site of all places after seeing your haul. I’m glad to see that the price really was worth it 🙂 The coverage looks so natural and of course the ingredient list is awesome 🙂
