Oil Free Foundations That’ll Blow Your Mind 🤯

By @thesassylondonista

If you’ve got oily skin, you’re probably struggling to find the perfect foundation for your skin type, specially if your skin is prone to breakouts and clogged pores.

Oil free foundations aren’t just good for for those with oily or acne prone skin, they are good for just about everyone- oil free foundations work to prevent shine, hide enlarged pores and mattify skin. Some of them even have skin clarifying formulas that clear out skin and minimise pores.
