It is no secret that I love liquid foundation. So when a new one comes along that promises oil free properties, brightening (very rare) and provides moisture to the skin – I knew I had to give it a whirl.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 blends well with fingertips (my preferred way) application, no issues there. With the current trend of “skin loving foundation” aka foundation that contain skincare ingredients, this liquid foundation contains Vitamin C (for brightening) and Vitamin E derivatives (to repair skin and prevent signs of aging). While I haven’t seen a huge improvement on my skin by using this foundation, I firmly believe that having skincare ingredients in a foundation is BETTER than not having anything in it at all.
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow SPF 25 comes with 8 foundation shades to choose from and they have some really dark shades to suit all types of skin colour too. My match is the lightest shade – #”I’m pure 4 sure” Ivory. I really liked how the colour matches my skin tone perfectly and doesn’t have any annoying white cast like most brightening make up does. Recently, I also wore this foundation for a photoshoot and here are the pictures.

Needless to say, this is my current go-to foundation especially during winter and we all know how drying and unforgiving the weather can do to our skin. If you get a chance, trial it on the counter, I am sure you’ll love it as much as I do.
