If I love Benefit make up but think my skin reacts badly to it, what else would I like?

I love Benefit makeup, it's perfect for my look, skin tone etc but I think it makes my skin react, particularly the tinted moisturiser.

What else could I use? I don't like anything the looks like foundation, so it needs to be ultra-light and moisturising. I am pale with a lot of redness.

Any recs greatly received.

Soap and glory make up, you can get it from bigger Boots shops. I love benefit stuff but started to react to it, the soap &glory stuff has the same look/feel but I don't react to it (cheaper too!)

I second Soap and Glory. I used to love Benefit stuff (well I still do) but struggle justifying the cost, but I find S&G is just as good.

Bourjois Healthy Mix serum foundation is light and moisturising. I have pale skin with some redness and the lightest shade is perfect for me. I apply straight after moisturiser and don't wear much of it, so it's pretty much like a tinted moisturiser. And only about a tenner from Boots.

And yes try Soap and Glory for other makeup too, similar retro branding - the Glow All Out powder is very good and gives me some oomph when I'm looking grey every day

I like NARS blush (used to use benefit stuff) and instead of foundation if I ever wear anything I use garnier BB cream of some description as it's the only one that doesn't irritate my skin.

I also love benefit and I use garnier BB cream as well.
