I'm 34 and don't normally wear make up unless I'm going out for an evening, and then never really foundation. I'd like to start wearing something very light to work and the gym (prone to get very red but also very sweaty at the gym so it needs to stay on!). I'd also like to start moisturising daily with an spf which i know i should have been doing anyway (i do have oil prone skin though). I looked into tinted moisturisers but it seems bb and cc creams are much better?

This is all new to me, and with so many requirements and options I'm a bit lost! I normally shop at the body shop or Boots if that helps.

I had never used a bb cream at all before this summer and wanted something lighter during the hotter days. I bought boots no 7 BB cream in med/dark for oily/combination skin and really liked it. It was light and sheer but still covered imperfections. I used it with a light dusting of powder over the top just to mattify it. I got some samples before I bought it just to make sure I liked the product.

I use no. 7 tinted moisturiser with their colour matched conceal or to hide any imperfections. I'd say u would be lucky to find anything to stay in place at gym. Can u not just go to gym fresh faced and apply a little make up after ur work out.

I'd recommend a mineral foundation powder such as Lily Lolo. It's very light and a doddle to apply. I find that it stays on even when I cycle in the rain! Best of all, you can send off for sample pots to try out so you can make sure to get the right shade.

Thanks, going to order a some samples. Ideally I want to wear it during my work out to hide my bright red face blush
