Finding your perfect foundation match is no mean feat. Some are too matte, others too glowy, and some cling to dry skin, while others don’t seem to want to stay put at all. And it’s true that often your base of choice has the power to totally wash out your complexion and even break you out. It’s a situation I know all too well. Often, I think I’ve found a new favourite base, until after a week of using it, my face is plagued with zits.
It’s a sorry fact, but even the best of foundations have a tendency to block pores and cause breakouts. For someone like me who wears just a smattering of foundation on a good day, dealing with foundation-induced breakouts isn’t all that common. But this got me thinking, how do those people who wear foundation morning, noon and night cope? After a bit of digging, I discovered that some of our favourite A-listers have been keeping a major foundation secret.
It turns out that celebrities such as Margot Robbie, Kourtney Kardashian, Elle Macpherson, and Ellie Goulding all use Oxygenetix Oxygenating Foundation (£45) to achieve a blurred, perfected finish that actually works to treat skin at the same time, minimising the risk of any breakouts.
Yes, you read that right. A heavy-duty, full-coverage foundation that won’t break you out exists. Formulated as a post-procedure, breathable foundation, Oxygenetix uses Ceravitae Complex to increase the skin’s oxygen uptake and heal any damage.
So what else makes it a celeb favourite besides the fact it won’t break you out? Well, frankly, it really lasts. Because it’s a totally oil-free formula, your base won’t transfer anywhere near as severely as other foundations might.
I can really vouch for it. Since switching out my everyday foundation for Oxygenetix, I can safely say that my skin is in better shape than ever (excusing the odd Christmas indulgence–induced zit). It’s by far one of the most natural-looking, heavy-coverage foundations I’ve ever gotten my mitts on. And trust me—I’ve tried a whole bunch.
