Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation, is throwing out our no1 beauty rule - thou shalt never sleep in make-up - thanks to its clever oxygen-enriched formula. The brilliant base allows skin to breathe more than other typical foundations meaning you don't have to cleanse it off every night.

Originally developed to be used after cosmetic surgery or procedures like lasers and peels, the medical-grade formula was created to aid the skin's healing process, meaning it'll get to work repairing your skin dilemmas whether it's spots, wrinkles, sun damage etc.

he formula works in a similar to way to many of the skincare products in our beauty arsenal, packed with ingredients like vitamin E to soothe, hyaluronic acid to moisturize, green tea as an anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties to protect skin from the environment - sounds awesome right?! All these goodies make it perfect for stressed-out, acne-prone, sensitive skin and mature complexions that need a little extra TLC.

The foundation is a total must-buy for gym bunnies as it's water-resistant, meaning it's 100% sweat-proof, plus the breathable, anti-bacterial technology is oil-free and won't clog pores. Now you can kiss goodbye to post-treadmill redness, blotches and breakouts - yay!
