When choosing products for skin toning, you often have to purchase several cosmetic products, each of which performs a specific function. So, a masking pencil allows you to hide the most visible defects, a cream or fluid – to even out the surface and give the skin a uniform color, and the powder provides a matte finish and eliminates oily sheen. A long-awaited novelty in the field of decorative cosmetics has become a “smart” foundation that solves all these problems at the same time.
What is a “smart” foundation?
The considered cosmetic product has the following properties:
- reliably hides skin imperfections and defects;
- evens out the relief;
- gives the face a uniform color;
- perfectly adapts to the natural skin tone;
- prevents the secretion of excess sebum;
- moisturizes dry areas;
- protects the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays (SPF factor).
At the same time, a real “smart” foundation is non-comedogenic, that is, it does not clog pores. In addition, many professional lines develop special products for mature skin, with the addition of ingredients that smooth wrinkles.
Consider the most popular creams that have proven themselves in this area.

The presented tool has a fairly thick consistency, but does not lie too tightly on the face. This provides more natural coverage without the effect of a mask and feeling of heaviness, as well as foundation after a few hours after application.
The composition of the product in question includes milk protein molecules called biopol. Its combination with a micro-sponge allows you to eliminate oily shine by absorbing excess skin secretions. In areas where the skin is overdried or flaky, intense hydration and nutrition is provided through the extract of medicinal chamomile and a high concentration of vitamin E.

The presented product simultaneously performs three functions:
Special microparticles that reflect light allow you to achieve a natural skin tone and even retain the color of a natural blush.
The fight against wrinkles is due to the content in the foundation of substances such as parelastil from fruit extracts, profetinol A, vitamin E and glycerin. The agent in question provides long-term hydration and nutrition of the skin, as well as, with regular use, a noticeable improvement in its condition, increased elasticity and firmness.
