Lightweight foundation/tinted moisturiser

I have oily skin but don't want up wear heavy foundation as I think it's making my spots worse and I don't need the coverage, I can use concealer.
Any recommendations for a light-feeling base I can just smoosh on easily but also won't make me too shiny?

I have combination skin and I use Clinique CC cream which is very light. It's a bit shiny though so I use a bit of sheer powder over the top.
I also tried a similar product by Mac which was good (and even lighter if I remember rightly).
Lots of make up brands do CC and BB creams so it might be worth looking at a few to compare.

I'm using clarins bb cream, very easy to put on, warm a pea sized amount on yr fingertips and just rub in. It leaves a light matte finish, I really like it.

Bare minerals! I get less shine, less spots and full coverage with it on and I have to wear it every day at work - totally breathable but no less coverage than a normal foundation!!

Diorskin nude works well and is light

I use Mac Face and body too, and I really like the fact that its light, but you can build a little more coverage if you want
