Instead of reaching for a pore clogging, thick and heavy weight foundation, we tried and tested some fabulous new skin perfecting foundation which not only use light weight tech to give you good coverage, they are choc full of ingredients designed to treat skin problems as well.

Check them out below:

Arbonne Intelligence Pollution Defence CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen RRP $44

This is a breathable foundation which is lightweight, non-greasy and long wearing and perfect for everyday wear.

Now it is a CC cream, so you may need a good concealer to go with it, if you want to hide any pesky blemishes as this foundation is extra light weight. However, it is buildable as well.

The fomulation adds 30 SPF sun protection, pollution defence for particles as small as PM 2.5 microns, environmental aggressor defence, primer, protector, concealer, hydrator, mattifier, brightener, blemish cover, pore refiner, smoother and complexion controller in just one cream

Vani-T Skin Perfector HD Serum Foundation RRP $56.95

This foundation instantly gives a smooth, pore-diffusing finish that easily builds to medium to full coverage. Plus, it’s full of UV filters, vitamins, and antioxidants galore.

Aspect Sun CC Cream SPF 50+ RRP $59

Perfect for those days where you want the lightest coverage possible, whilst still tinting the skin and providing sun protection too.

It’s cruelty-free, Australian made and designed to correct and defend. Idea as a replacement for your normal sunscreen, this CC cream is a incredibly light-weight foundation (or rather tinted sunscreen moisturiser), which will provide you with sun protection, whilst alsogiving you decent coverage.
