HALEYS Beauty RE:SET Liquid Matte Foundation

This foundation by HALEYS Beauty is ideal for people who want to improve their complexion without looking like they’re wearing a lot of makeup. It’s a liquid that spreads easily but dries to a matte finish.

People with oily skin or a shiny T-zone will appreciate the absorbent coverage. Those with imperfections — such as under-eye circles, dark spots, rosacea or blemishes — will find that the double-pigmented formula and full coverage instantly hide flaws.

The foundation includes a unique antioxidant blend to nourish and heal the skin. Antioxidants help fight damage from chemicals and pollution, plus prevent future damage.

On top of the included antioxidants, the foundation contains vitamin E, which supports skin health and has anti-inflammatory properties. It doesn’t contain fragrances, parabens, sulfates, or phthalates. As such, it’s an ideal option for people with skin allergies or sensitivities.1
