This Little-Known Foundation Is Insanely Good at Covering Redness

This Little-Known Foundation Is Insanely Good at Covering Redness

It was the first time I had ever gotten filler. I started an anti-inflammatory diet a year prior as part of my relentless search for more energy. The diet helped, but along with more energy came unintentional weight loss, and it mostly showed on my face. I have a resting heart rate of around 100 bpm, and a naturally over-active metabolism, so weight-gain and maintenance has always been a struggle for me. I don’t feel confident when I look too thin, especially in my face and cheek hollows.

I had a date to a big basketball game on the same night, but I was told that the fillers would be no obstacle to that. The appointment was unfortunately well-before the days that I knew about cannulas and various anti-bruising and bleeding techniques; the doctor injecting me chose to micro-dose the filler, pricking dozens of sites all over the area above my mouth. I was thrilled with the results, but horrified by how red my face was.

I told the doctor that her front desk advised me of no down-time, and that there was no way I could go on a date in the next couple of hours looking like I did. “Don’t worry," she said. "I have a special makeup just for this. It’s called Oxygenetix.” I didn’t believe that makeup could conceal my redness and I was suspicious of it clogging my newly-injected pores. Shock and awe washed over me when she applied the medicinal-sounding foundation; it covered my redness completely and the formula was incredibly moisturizing.

I was reintroduced to the product recently when I went to get a micro-needling facial with PRP, and the doctor advised that I apply Oxygenetix to conceal the 3 days of redness that follow. While researching, I found out that the line also has a foundation with salicylic acid specifically for acne control during breakouts, so I started recommending it to friends with problem skin.

I like that the foundation is made in California, and it doesn’t have any added oils, preservatives, or fragrances – plus, the formula is seriously amazing. It’s really pigmented, so a little goes a very long way which makes the price more palatable given that it will last longer than an average bottle of foundation. Sometimes, I use it as my everyday makeup because it’s one of the best formulas I’ve ever tried. This is definitely my go-to for to for sensitive skin days, bad breakouts, post procedures, or when I just want to get endless compliments on my skin.
