I've been using the L'Oreal Nude Magique anti-redness CC cream (green tube with the purple shiny lid) for the past week. And it's amazing (in the real sense of the word!).
It completely tones down my redness, doesn't cling to the dry patches and stays on all day. I've had two people mention how good my skin looks this week, and usually I spend fartoomuch a bit on foundation. I think it's £9.99, so not megabucks, and well worth it.
It was really orange on me too. Looked awful, I gave it to a friend in the end. However, I impulse purchased Olay Pore Minimiser CC Cream last week and it's fab. Makes my skin look really good and blends easily. Just melts into your skin.
