The Kjaer Weis Cream Foundation, however, has restored my faith in the notion of an organic medium to medium-full coverage foundation! Fortified with nourishing Sweet Almond Oil, hydrating Coconut Oil and anti-aging Jojoba Oil, this smooth and luxurious base applies like silk, leaving a satin matte porcelain finish that is simultaneously perfecting and natural looking.
