Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation Review

Tuesday, 26 May 2015

Hey everyone!

What a busy bank holiday weekend its been for me! On Saturday I attended Beautycon London, which was amazing by the way - (a full blog post will be coming up!) I had to leave early though because I was heading off on a mini bank holiday weekend getaway with family. I did vlog a bit of beautycon and the holiday but I have yet decided if I will be uploading this to my YouTube channel. Let me know if that's something you'd like to see.

Today's post is about a new discovery for me. I had been eyeing up the Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation* for a while now. So when I was offered the opportunity to review this popular foundation, I jumped at the chance.

Oxygenetix is renowned for its amazing skin benefits in their products. The foundation was originally developed to heal and conceal skin after cosmetic surgery and procedures such as laser and peels. Oxygenetix is based in Beverly Hills and has now taken the UK by storm - it was released here in late 2014 and the foundation has been marketed as a high end foundation that helps promote the healing process of a number of skin conditions, whilst being the ideal foundation for everyday wear.

Oxygenetix has gained a lot of celebrity fans, with Makeup artist Patty Bunch using the foundation on a number of celebrity clients. 

The foundation is available in 14 shades, seven yellow base colours and seven blue base colours so there is bound to be a colour that suits most skin tones.

I have been testing out this foundation for a couple of weeks now to fully see how great it really is, and I must say I am very pleased with the results.

  • I apply one pump of the Oxygenetix foundation and this seems to be enough as a little goes a long way. The shade I got is in Almond, which is unfortunately a little pale for me and I think a shade up (honey) would have been a perfect fit. For reference I am an NC42 in MAC.

  • The coverage is good, it gives a light to medium buildable coverage which makes it perfect for any occasion. It can be worn everyday, for a night out or a wedding for the desired coverage.

  • The finish is semi matte without looking dull or overly drying, which makes it ideal for most skin types. I have oily skin and this seems to work for me.

  • You get an even coverage and it's very light on the skin.


The packaging is quite different to usual foundations, it comes in a 15ml plastic bottle that looks like medicine packaging, which is to be expected considering it originated as foundation for medical purposes. The foundation has a pump which is a bonus - I can't cope with foundations without a pump!


  • Looks like skin if you get the correct shade.
  • Flattering in photos even though it contains an SPF of 20.
  • Lives up to its claim of being breathable; doesn't clog pores or cause breakouts.
  • The foundation is great for those with acne prone skin.


  • Is a little expensive for £45 for a 15ml bottle, but I think it is definitely worth the investment.
  • Might be difficult to colour match.
  • Can be hard to get a hold of in-store, however, it can be purchased through Cult Beauty or beauty is skin deep.

Overall, I think this foundation is great for everyday as it contains SPF 20, which is an important factor for me. I will probably purchase the foundation in honey, especially because the Summer months are coming up and I'll definitely be getting more tanned.

I highly recommend this foundation if you're looking for something medium coverage whilst being light on the skin with sun protection.

If you have this foundation, or would like to try it out let me know in the comments section :) I might also do a review + demo on YouTube if anyone is interested.

  1. Love the sound of this foundation! Some of my foundations aren't as breathable as they could be so this is a pretty good alternative :) great blog post, B xo
