Rouge Bunny Rouge Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation [Review & Swatches]

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

 Since then I've got my Rouge Bunny Rouge products, I've been using it on regular basis as I find this is the best time to try out and finish different products while I'm on spending ban. Since there's been winters and we all know how badly these winters challenges our makeup and skin. Foundation is the first thing I begin to worry about as in winters my skin plays quite weird role and changes into completely dry and flaky skin. I found my experience with Rouge Bunny Rouge Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation works miraculously for me which was above my expectation level. How? To find it out, read more.

My Verdict 

I'm in just my mid-twenties means I really don't need to get Age-Defying foundations but few weeks ago when I received my RBR good's the PR team was kind enough to throw the samples of their best-selling Time Defying Foundation of all of their 4 colors available on their website.The fact that the Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation comes in four shades didn't leave me with much of a color choices so having all four foundation shades in samples is a real good experience as I can find my perfect match and later on can go and buy that specific shade. Since then I've been using it and giving it a proper try and I'm properly excited actually by its coverage, finish, lasting power and shades.

So what to say about the foundation? They say Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation is a youth protecting foundation that gives medium to high coverage by even out skin tone and by diminishing those awful natural signs of ageing that appears with time. Personally I'd say I'm completely happy with it as does its job pretty well and does what it claims. I obviously don't have mature skin so results is not that obvious on me but I tried it on my mom whos in her late forties and I was surprised to see the results. Her mature skin looked flawless just in one swipe. Those fine lines disappeared instantly and given such youthful, younger looking skin with great hydration. I really love the hydrating properties by diminishing those natural signs of ageing and fine lines on skin and leaves skin so smooth and younger natural looking with such fresh radiant glow.

The most significant con of this foundation is its limited shade and in my opinion its all in the NC/NW20 to NC/NW35-40 range. No wonders that it's an overall nice product for people who have light to medium skin tones. But I'm afraid the shades will not compliment those who are very pale/fair or very dark/tan or having very cool or very warm undertone. I'm hoping RBR releases some additional shades to cover all necessary shades.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation

They have four shades at present, i.e.

  • Barley Cream is medium beige honey which is the darkest shade in the range and will suit NC35-40 skin tones and is my perfect match in Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation.

  •  Linen Cream is pale milky beige and is the lightest shades with yellow undertones and will suit NC20-25 skin tones.

  • Quinoa Cream is pale pinkish beige with light and more neutral beige undertones and will suit NC/NW 20-25 skin tones.

  • Wheat Cream is medium tawny beige which is medium beige with warm yellow undertone and will suit people having NC25-27.

The product is having rich luxurious texture sort of cream and as soon as I put Skin Sanctuary onto my face I felt texture like a thick luxurious BB cream. As it has multiple benefits you can skip the step of applying essential oils, serums, moisturizing etc if you having super dry/flaky skin cause Skin Sanctuary does it all. Having SPF protection from Titanium Dioxide makes it ideal everyday foundation. Being rich in texture it doesn't mean it is loaded with all that greasy-ness if someone having oily face applied on face, despite the fact that it sets as a beautiful Satin-Matte finish without being so cakey or look over-done when applied more then once.Its SO light-weight that it definitely not going to set on those fine line and accentuate or creases on contrary it even outs the skin tone and hide those fine lines. I'd been using it for a about 3 weeks in extremely dry weather of Dubai as that was a winter time but I'd not noticed any cracking or flaking by the end of the day but I'm not sure if it'd keep up its promise in extreme humidity in summer. The formula provides medium to high coverage, even out skin tone and reduce the natural sign of mature skin as well as giving you youthful, fresh, and naturally glowing skin. Having rich texture but feel so SMOOTH and CREAMY that provides fuller coverage at first single swipe. 

Use Skin Sanctuary foundation alone or with RBR Mattifying Prime or Aqua Primer that will enhance its long lasting effect. Just take a pea-size amount and dab it on your nose, forehead, both of the cheeks and chin and start blending it out downwards with a foundation brush or fingers. You can apply another layer of foundation if desired and let it set for 2-3 minutes and set it with powder if you are super-oily. But in my opinion you don't need to set it as this will battles many elements of aging by preventing, protecting, concealing and nourishing.

The lasting power with having primer underneath (in my case having W7 Prime Magic and as it was extremely dry weather I didn't wear any moisturizer underneath apart primer only) the wear time was 8-10 hours without fading, smearing, cracking and turning into a greasy disco ball. My skin was hydrated, well-balanced, well-moisturized, healthy and beautiful looking for the duration of wear. Skin Sanctuary foundation comes in 30 ml bottle with a beautiful black print on it. I'm a fan of their packaging. It has pump in it so controlled product dispense is in hands and you just need small amount to apply on face in my opinion it will lasts quite long with you. For dry/normal skin this foundation is best, however I'm not so sure about oily/combination skins as I'd tried it in winters. I'll try Skin Sanctuary foundation this summer and will try to do a updated post later on.

My Rating 


Based on experience I'm extremely pleased with the Skin Sanctuary Time Defying Foundation especially if you have mature skin and looking for something extra ordinary. Though I find it bit heavy for day-time look but whenever I get to go to party or dinner or whenever I want more coverage for night-look or only for photo-shoot look this is one of the FABULOUS product. I've already finished my match and really looking forward to get my hands on its full-sized bottle now. It's priced 40.76 which I know is quite expensive for a product that you want to use on a daily basis but its worth a penny. You can purchase it from Rouge Bunny Rouge's official website Here .
