Top 5 Foundations for better skin this month

Absolutely love wearing foundation as your go-to beauty necessity but sick of the damaging effects it can leave on your skin? Or simply hate how you can never find the right one to perfect your complexion? Stress no longer my friend, I’ve done the hard work for you after collecting a variety of brands and different types of foundations I have trialled, tested and successfully narrowed down the Top 5 Foundations that won’t cause you those annoying and unwanted breakouts or damage the skin. In fact they will actually do just about the opposite by improving the quality and texture, leaving it oh so soft and smoother than a baby’s bottom. Sound too good to be true? Why not try them out for yourself! As I always say the proof is in the pudding. Take a look.

1.Loreal Paris skin perfection BB Cream
It’s fresh on the market (#hotnewnow) but an absolute must try as it’s an instant blemish balm enriched with Glycerin, Allantoin and Vitamn CG. This 5 in 1 super multipurpose cream allows 24 hour hydration, targets dark spots, reduces redness, smoothens skin texture and even brightens skin tones and imperfections. SPF is included in this brilliantly tinted formula that perfects complexion. It’s hypo-allergenic, dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. This BB cream I found is extremely light, rich in colour and easily glides on, leaving a natural looking flawless appearance without damaging the skin. And for less than half the price of most accredited foundations, it’s definitely a winner.
RRP $24.99

2. Napolean Perdis Auto Pilot BBB Cream SPF30
This little baby takes the B one step further with a hybrid of skin-perfecting, HD foundation, anti-ageing moisturiser, and a broad spectrum sunscreen. It’s simply a multitasking base that feels light on the face with low maintenance. Although I found it’s quite thin on application and does have added shimmer to the formula, it still magnificently allows enough coverage to perfect and correct your skin. And because it’s so versatile, you can wear it day or night, bonus!
