Review | Bourjois Java Rice Powder

Everyone is/was talking about this product, so I got sucked into the hype. After looking for it everywhere I found it for 50% of! It was meant to go this way you know! I heard it was a gorgeous, highlighting powder. So I had very, high hopes for this one!

It comes in a small, minty container. I actually do not like the packaging very much. The powder is going everywhere! The scent to this product is a love/hate thing. I personally really like that all Bourjois products smell amazing! This powder smells like roses, I think? Love that!

At first I did not see the hype at all. I thought it would’ve more shimmer to it and it could be used as a subtle sheen. However for me, when I look at the powder, I can hardly see a sparkle. I tried it out on my hand and I saw that it's not your usual translucent powder, but still it's not what I expected.

I tried it out again last week and I do see why people rave about it. It gives a healthy glow to your face without overdoing it. I wouldn't say it’s a highlighter, but more a glowy, setting powder.
I wouldn't recommend this for people with oily skin. In the beginning it looks lovely, but you do not want to make your face look even shinier during the day. Powder your face with a matt powder and then put the Java powder on top. This might solve the problem for us combination/oily gals.

End conclusion: I think it's perfect for people with dry to normal skin. It will make your skin look very healthy and glowy. Oily to combination skin: not so much. I bought it, but I don't think I will use it very often, which is a shame. Especially in the summer when I will look shiny very quickly, this won't be my go-to powder product. Maybe I will change my mind when fall is upon us?
