love this!
Purchased

I used this yesterday for the first time and it made my skin look AMAZING! I am so thrilled with this purchase. I had purchased similar products in the past (bare minerals) and I couldn't wear it because the synthetic properties in the make up caused my skin to itch terribly! This is all organic and I do not have that problem with this product!

I used this over my Dr. Jart BB cream and it paired together perfectly! Topped with Laura Mercier Camo concealer. Excellent product!

Not as natural
Purchased

Really wanted to like this because it's so natural, but it sat on my face vs blending in. I compared it to my other mineral foundation and the quality of the other one was much better. Returned.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I have used Bare Minerals in the past but wanted to try something new. I love Well People Mineral Foundation. The color is perfect and the coverage is great! I will continue to buy this!

Good for a powder foundation
Purchased

I must admit that I am typically not a fan of powder foundations as I have very dry, sensitive skin; however, I was able to make this one work. Unfortunately all liquid foundations with comparable ingredients that I've tried do not provide sufficient coverage. I decided to try this because it is organic and has some of the cleanest ingredients I've found in a foundation thus far. While my skin does still feel dry at times, it is manageable with lots of moisturizer underneath. I've been using this product a few days per week for the last month and a half, and have not had any issues with sensitivity or breaking out. I am happy with the amount of coverage, which I would say is medium-full. I would recommend this to anyone looking for an organic foundation with safe ingredients.

Finally!!!
Purchased

This is a wonderful natural-looking foundation that is easy to use every day. It takes a few minutes to brush on and I look forward to using it the rest of the summer! I'm medium and olive complexion and the medium 15 is a good fit.

Nice foundation
Purchased

This is a nice mineral foundation, tho it seems to fall into my pores & lines a bit. Could prob be corrected if I used a primer tho. The color stayed all day. I did get a bit oily in the afternoon tho. I normally use inka & it can be drying at times, this foundation isn't but is also why I prob get oily. Again primer might solve this. I got the light neutral color & it looked really light in the container, however, was not once applied. I tend to be light -medium on the lighter side & this color was perfect. I like the feel of the powder, it's not heavy or cakey.

great mineral foundation
Purchased

I love the quality of the ingredients and the consistency of the foundation. The color matches my complexion perfectly which has been a challenge for me to find. I hope the Well People brand comes out with a cream to powder foundation as another option for us.

Loved it, until It Tried to Burn my Face Off
Purchased

I loved it at first, but the more I used it my face started hurting. The last time I used it my face burned so bad, I had to immediately wash it off. It felt like tiny shards of glass entered my pores. Have you ever gotten home insulation on your skin -ya, that's the feeling. I had a horrible rash and peeling skin on my face that took a few days of constant aloe and hyaluronic acid to fix. The very odd thing to me is that I have NEVER had a severe allergic reaction to any makeup or skin care. I am a beauty product and subscription box blogger, so I have tested and used so many different products. Yes, I've had issues with things irritating or itching, but NOTHING like this. I had my two daughters try it -one of them absolutely hated it because it made her skin peel (dryness), the other it made her acne dramatically worse with just one use. I rarely write bad reviews, but this product is just that bad.

W3LL PEOPLE Altruist Satin Mineral Foundation
Purchased

Organic ingredients are hard to find in a mineral foundation that also gives a “natural” look when applied.
This lightweight formula helps to even skin tone, reduce redness and give a healthy glow.
This feels totally natural.
Your skin can breathe.
It is great for those who don’t like the heaviness of liquid foundation.
