Givenchy foundation balm. It's more than a tinted moisturiser but non sticky.

Is it fragrance free?

It's early days (still in a testing phase with me) but Shiseido Synchro foundation, although it does list fragrance in the ingredients it's not discernible and it hasn't irritated me which is really rare. It has a surprising amount of coverage while looking really natural. Non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested too, but since we're opposite sensies maybe one to avoid wink.

I have the Givenchy couture balm, it has fragrance. I can wear it once without irritation but not consecutively.

Just checked and no it isn't fragrance free

Ha ha thanks botemp ;) it really does need to be completely free of fragrance/parfum in the ingredients list for me.

Have you never tried Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser or other foundations from her, or have I asked this already? The new Candlelight one is supposed to be very good.

Yeah I have tried Laura mercier tm and hated it sad

The BareMinerals Complexion Rescue could be worth a go?

It's very light coverage so you need to have decent skin imo but the way it makes my skin look is incredible. You don't look like you're wearing anything at all, you just have this amazing glow.

Fragrance free too smile

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation is fragrance free if I remember rightly. It's fairly buildable coverage, lots of shades to choose from and doesn't feel remotely cakey.

Another vote for Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. Its fabulous stuff. You can also layer foundation over it for more coverage but it is lovely on it s own.

Hi, thanks for the suggestions.
I have tried the bare minerals rescue one, I wanted to love it, it sounded perfect but I returned it! It had zero coverage, even when I added another layer and made my skin very shiny!
I tried a sample of the urban decay one recently and the finish was powdery on me.
