Review: Ecco Bella FlowerColor Natural Liquid Foundation SPF 15

Ecco Bella was one of the first brands that I discovered during my search for cruelty-free cosmetics. Although they are not entirely vegan, they offer many vegan and gluten-free products. I was looking forward to trying out their foundation, as it seemed like a successful, well-established company like Ecco Bella would have a good option. I was not disappointed by their FlowerColor Natural Liquid Foundation SPF 15.

  • Light/medium finish great for daily use
  • Great liquid texture
  • Mild scent
  • Provides broad spectrum SPF 15 (UVA/UVB)
  • Available in many colors
  • Contains organic ingredients
  • Limited selection for darker skin tones
Ecco Bella's FlowerColor Natural Liquid Foundation is a nice option for those looking for a liquid with light to medium coverage. However, the shades appear to be cool to neutral and are available in mostly lighter tones. Those with warmer or darker skin tones may want to request new shades. Moderately priced at $25.95, this foundation is worth the price due to its double-duty as a broad-spectrum sunscreen and high-quality ingredients. One tube will likely last a 3-6 months, which is great for a liquid (so it won't expire before it is used up). I'd recommend this foundation for someone who is looking for a good daily sunscreen with SPF and has a lighter, cool to neutral skin tone.

If I were to offer suggestions for improvement, I'd recommend removing the Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate). This ingredient rates highly on the EWG skin deep database, bringing the safety rating down despite other great ingredients. Also, there have been environmental concerns surfacing recently regarding palm oil and other palm ingredients, so it may be worth looking into alternatives for the other palm-derived ingredients, if they are not already sourced with sustainability in mind.
