Optical blurring BB cream

Help MN.

I've been using urban decay naked skin BB cream with optical blurring in shade 01. I don't wear make up (CBA,ezcema, adult acne) but this worked for me. Good coverage of my red bits, didn't aggravate the skin. Was a very very pale shade which I need and crucially you didn't need to faff about. Just wash, moisturise and wack it on for better looking skin. You only need a tiny spot so I've had my current tube about a year.
Subsequently to my finding this holy grail product they have discontinued this shade and now do a much yellower 'universal' tone which makes me look orange. angry

So I'm back to the drawing board.

I've tried the Arbonne cc cream (too yellow in palest shade, rubbish coverage) and the Clinique BB cream (too yellow, made face itch) and some cheapy ones in the boots make up section (l'oreal maybeline etc) but all either not right in colour or gave me sore skin right away.

Any recommendations?

Wish list is:

Paler than pale (blueish base tones ideally)
Good for sensitive skin
Optical blurring so solid coverage while still feeling weightless

Sorry, don't get excited, I haven't a clue. I have skin similar to yours though and still haven't had luck so I'm following.

I'm afraid I don't know about optical blurring but Dr Jart BB cream is very pale. It is a Korean skincare brand and you can get it in Boots. They do different options for different skin types.

Thanks cheesy

My local boots doesn't have dr jart (rural Scotland) so I've ordered a sample off of eBay. Will report back.

Dollish veil vita in brightening purple (off eBay) or have a look at Missha BB cream (I wear #13)
The dollish is lovely, I am cool toned pale and wear it a lot. Otherwise I wear urban decay naked skin but the foundation in 0.5
