Best cream/ foundation/ primer for pale skin that blushes madly ;-)

I have quite pale skin, but with a slightly red nose. And when I am under pressure I tend to go red from my nose, through cheeks, right down to neck. I have heard there are green type creams that can help. Has anyone got any experience - do they work, and which is the best? Thanks so much - I have an interview on Friday and am afraid I will sabotage my chances with a mad red glow.

Boots do a good one. I also use Dermablend concealer on those areas under foundation. Clinique also do a whole range of products for that type of skin. May be worth having a consultation with them and trying out some of their products? It sucks having this sort of skin I know! Also avoiding wine, spicy foods even hot drinks as well as things like saunas etc.

Thank you. I think I will try the Clinique consultation - that is a good plan. Have you ever used the green cream?

What is the boots one called, do you remember?

It's a primer that is in a green tube, can't remember the name of it I'm afraid. I have used it, it does help to tone it down under foundation. You don't need a lot of it.

This isn't going to help you for Friday (good luck by the way!) as it won't be delivered in time but Kalme Chameleon Concealer is really good.
