They infuse wild-picked araza extract in their products and their slogan is #iflookscouldheal!

Araza Coconut Cream Foundation Review

I was most intrigued by Araza’s All-in-One Coconut Cream Foundation! I used their Foundation Shade Finder tool which was helpful and led me to pick shade 180 (light with cool pink undertones; it turned out the be a perfect match!).

To be completely honest, I was NOT expecting to like it as much as I do! Sometimes cream foundations can be really cakey or dry. I’m so glad that wasn’t the case with this one.

Araza Coconut Cream Foundation

👍 What I like about it:

  • Has very low PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) content
  • Has a creamy, smooth texture and applies so beautifully and seamlessly
  • Smells incredible! Fruity with hints of coconut, and not too strongly scented.
  • Contains SPF25 with non-nano zinc oxide ☀️ and can also block blue light pollution
  • Buildable, light to medium coverage that feels comfortable and breathable on my skin
  • Has a dewy, radiant finish but is not too oily or shiny. It looks very natural like a fresh, healthy glow!
  • The ingredients are SUPER clean and also nourishing, so it doubles as skincare! #OrganicallyBeccaApproved
  • The shade I wear has cool pink undertones which I appreciate because it matches my skin tone really well and isn’t too warm or yellow

👎 What I don’t like about it:

  • Because of the clay, it can get harder and stiff when it’s stored in a colder room, however, it doesn’t take much to warm it up and apply. It becomes more workable once it touches your skin.
  • It does hold up rather well throughout the day, but I’ve noticed very slight creasing with it, specifically around my eyelids and corners of my eyes/crow’s feet. This is probably from the oils and my combination skin. To be fair, it’s minimal and easy to blend the spots back in. I typically use a setting powder on top and that helps too.
  • This is more for cream foundations in general, but they can be a little more cumbersome to apply since you have to keep dipping into the pot vs. a pump you can squirt onto a foundation brush. It’s also not the most hygienic thing, so I try to make sure my brush is always clean! (I use this foundation brush to apply it and this brush to buff it out)

Other things to know about the foundation:

  • Comes in 24 shades and has sample sizes
  • Formulated with a coconut post-biotic that supports your skin’s microbiome
  • It contains organic beeswax so it is not technically vegan if that matters to you!
  • Suitable for all skin types. Coconut oil gets a bad reputation in skincare and makeup 🥥 In its raw form, yes it can be comedogenic and clog pores! However, Araza uses MCT oil which is a lightweight, fractionated form of coconut that has the heavy fatty acid removed, and shouldn’t clog pores for most people (but we all have different skin!). I struggled with acne in the past and have NOT noticed any breakouts from using this.
Full list of ingredients:

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (MCT Oil)*, Zinc Oxide, Beeswax*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Silica, Coconut Post-biotic, Eugenia Stipitata (Araza Fruit) Extract*, Rosa Canina Fruit (Rosehip Seed) Oil*, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil*, Natural Clay, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Seed Oil*, Non-GMO Natural Vitamin E Oil, Iron Oxides, Mica, Organic Essential Oil Blend [*certified organic or wild picked]

Overall, I’m quite happy with this foundation and would definitely get it again! It feels wonderful on my face and looks like second skin, but better.

  1. I’m glad you reviewed this brand! I’ve been using Araza for a few years now and haven’t found anything thing comparable with clean ingredients! I use to use Vapour Organics stick foundation (the company is sadly no longer) and Araza gives me that same dewy glow as my Vapour did. I have dry skin as I age and Araza’s cream foundation doesn’t feel dry on my skin. I also love their creme concealer and cream multi-color pot for cheeks, lips and eyes. I also use their Avocado Pencil liner for my brows. They also have powder foundation, concealer, blush and eye shadow but the powder was a bit too drying for my mature skin but would work great for oiler/combo types. I’m extremely sensitive to fragrances and some essential oils and although I don’t wear makeup on a regular basis, I haven’t found my skin to react to this brand. They also have a minimal selection of skin care, but due to the use of essential oils, I stay away…however, the ingredients again look very clean for those that can tolerate. I think they focus more on those with problematic skin/acne and I would like to see them branch out to more skin care suited for the mature/dry skin crowd. I’m still on the hunt for unscented and essential oil free skin care with the same pristine ingredients and practices. Thanks for the review, Becca! 🙂
