4 Foundations for Sensitive Skin
From the L'Oreal Portfolio of Brands
If you have sensitive skin, then you know just how difficult it can be to find skin care products that are designed for your skin type, let alone makeup products. Unlike cleansers, face makeup products—foundations in particular—stay on your face for much longer than a few minutes before a quick rinse. It’s that all-day stay that can be so daunting for sensitive skin types. Where cleanser can be quickly wiped away, foundation may affect your skin for hours if it’s not the right formula for your finicky complexion. Those of us with sensitive skin have all been there. We apply a foundation in hopes of coverage and concealment, only to find that our skin is even more upset by the end of the day. Ugh, the worst.
Since we are all too familiar with how difficult it can be to find a foundation formulated with sensitive skin in mind, we took it upon ourselves to find our best foundations from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands for this particular skin type. We finally landed on four products—you can blot on without fear. What’s more, the formulas we’ve chosen range all the way from light coverage to full coverage. So, without further ado, the foundations you’ll want to try on ASAP!
Dermablend Smooth Liquid Camo Foundation
Designed for use by even sensitive skin, the lightweight, hydrating formula creates long-lasting coverage that seamlessly conceals visible skin imperfections. What’s more, it’s formulated with Broad Spectrum SPF 25 to help protect your sensitive visage.
