I am very fair-skinned, so ordered the Fair sample bundle. Other reviews said the shades in it were even lighter than fair shades usually are. This is true. I had been wearing Mary Kay's Ivory, which is their lightest shade, and A'del's Ivory is much lighter. As pointed out in other reviews, I will probably be able to use the Ivory and Fair shades as concealer. Probably Natural Fair is going to be my go-to shade for foundation, though any of them would work OK really. Light Sand is a little more yellowish.
The samples come in little plastic tubs with snap-open lids which will be great for travel. The foundation cream is solid, but soft, at least in the cool dry climate where I live, and easy to apply with a finger or with a Q-tip for greater precision. I think these samples are going to last a long time since I don't apply much foundation, so all in all this was a great deal.
It was so great to get generous real samples of several shades to determine exactly what is best for you. I do not know of another company that does this. The product is so great - nice to know that they contain only healthy natural ingredients.
I love this foundation. A little goes a long way since it's so smooth to apply. Feels very light, such I love. Not cakey and thick like other foundations.
Overall, I love this foundation sample set. It goes on great, once my face is moisturized and blends well. Thank you!!
At 60 years of age, I want a foundation that covers, yet doesn't find every wrinkle that I have and emphasize them. I've been using another popular "clean" brand, but really want to support A'del Natural Cosmetics because of their beliefs and values. Maybe I ordered the wrong sample kit (Light) and should have ordered the Medium tones. Also, I love the skin care routine that I currently have and I'm not sure that this cream foundation works well with it. Maybe I should talk with a consultant from A'del?? Anyway, I love how they sent samples! Never known a company to do that, so kudos to them for making that available!
