Sansan HD Foundation

Sansan HD Foundation Review

After I purchased the HD concealer, I decided to buy Sansan’s HD foundation too.

I've never tried their foundation or BB cream before, but I’m definitely excited. Let's see if the hype holds up.

Sansan HD Foundation Review
Great packaging. Box, glass, pump, it's very impressive for PHP 195. It contains SPF 30, vitamins A, C and E. It offers medium coverage right off the bat and it can be full coverage when built up. It evens out skin tone and glad to know it has a yellow undertone. It comes in three shades which I wish there was more of, and it also has good oil control because only my t-zone needed touching up after about four hours. My skin didn’t break out too which was a relief as I'm really scared of changing up my bases. And I really felt that this was ideal for taking pictures especially when you put your cam on beauty mode. It just made my selfie look flawless. It has a dewy finish that needs to be set and you have to be careful not to put too much because it cakes up.

Unfortunately, there are times when the pump doesn’t work and it can be very hard to get the product out. The foundation also settles in fine lines and even on my eyelids whenever I put a bit too much or when it's not blended properly.

Also note that just because it's HD, doesn't mean that there's no white cast. It just minimizes the white cast, but it doesn't really eliminate it. It's still great for taking photos with flash compared to other foundations I've tried and made me look like a ghost.

What I hated was the smell. I had a massive headache when I first put this on. It smelled like vanilla, but it was just too strong. The headache was traumatic that drinking two 500mg mefenamic acid tablets couldn't handle it. I guess I'm just that kind of person who doesn't like vanilla scents. Would  have preferred it if it smelled like the HD concealer.

I still think it's a very affordable HD foundation with a minimal white cast. It has good oil control and it's really ideal for beauty mode selfies.


  1. Never heard of it but it looks nice on you!! ^^

    1. Haha. It's one of those brands you're just hesitant to buy. But I'm glad i tried it. Perfect for selife pictures lol. Thank you <3

  2. Okay, sold! I'm going to give this a shot. What do I have to lose, hehe :)

  3. Ask ko lang po kung pwede siya pang everyday use, i mean gawing lightweight like only putting minimal amount of product sa face? :) and i think with ur skin type hindi siya nag cake up because wala kang pores!
