We all know foundation isn't great for our skin and we should cut back on it and embrace make-up free days. But for many, including myself, that isn't an option. I like to have some coverage and often can't go without foundation. Good news as I recently tried Oxygenetix oxygenating foundation - a breathable foundation that keeps skin healthy while still providing complete coverage.
Oxygenetix Foundation was originally developed to heal and conceal skin after cosmetic procedures - such as laser and peels. It aims to promote the healing process of skin conditions. It contains Ceravitae - an oxygen complex that promotes collagen cell production and tissue growth in ageing skin. It is gel-based and also provides anti-bacterial qualities.
The foundation comes in 14 shades - seven yellow-based and seven blue-based - I recently tried out the shade 'Ivory' which suited me well. I was very impressed with this foundation! It felt very fresh and light when I was applying it and it didn't feel cakey or like it was clogging up my skin at all - it was more like a second skin! The thing I liked most is that it lasted all day and I didn't need to touch up my skin with powder throughout the day.

I'd say this foundation is perfect for every-day wear or for anyone that suffers with oily/congested skin or breakouts. It is a little pricey at £37.50 a bottle but worth the splurge! This foundation is available from Beauty is Skin Deep.
