Prevent and treat blemishes while providing natural-looking coverage with Skin-Clearing Oil-Free Makeup with MicroClear Technology by Neutrogena.
This is my new FAVORITE foundation! When I first saw the commercial, I told myself "I really NEED that!" I am very acne prone, so I was desperate. The coverage is amazing, with a lightweight feel. And because of this foundation, I am no longer breaking out. It also works for oily skin, so this foundation is perfect for me. I don't think I could ever switch foundations again, or at least for a while.
Ok so yes I was very skeptical after bouncing back and forth from foundation to foundation. My oily, acne prone, skin is slightly oily to super oily depending on my cycle, grrrrrr. I wanted to look dewy fresh instead of like a dry sheet of paper WITH full coverage. Geez is that too much for a lady to ask for?! I was drawn to this foundation simply because of it's magic ingredient, salicylic acid which is an everyday must have for me!!! This foundation gave me great coverage & sure did decrease my breakouts and the super oil slicks I usually get mid day. I just have to touch up once or twice w/my ELF Shine Eraser blotting sheets. So yes ladies, even us with oily skin can have it all!!! Happy blotting!!
July 2012 Update-
Although I really wanted to continue using this foundation, I had to move on to a longer lasting one. This Neutrogena one did decrease my breakouts, but on some days more than others it literally began vanishing. Literally I'd check my makeup early afternoon and even after setting it,not rubbing it, and my cheek not being an actual oily spot on my face IT WAS GONE. I am currently using the Revlon Colorstay for oily to combination skin and even in the 100+ weather here in deep south texas, I'm set.
I was not a fan of this product. Of course I didn't hold the name "skin clearing" with a lot of stock. But I was hoping it wouldn't be as oily as neutrogena healthy skin. I used it a few times and it actually made me break out more. I continued with healthy skin instead but I got rid of this product as soon as possible.
i used this for about a month.i really wanted to like this product i really did. the finish is natural and the coverage was okay. but as with all drugstore foundations, its lasting power isn't that great. this is probably great for people who don't have oily skin as my face would look like an oil spill after an hour and even looked a little oxidized. my skin is only a little bit oily so i can't imagine how this would look on people who have very oily skin.as for acne, this didn't make a difference in my face. i wasn't expecting it to as the percentage is small and there are also other ingredients in the bottle which i feel outweigh the benefits of the salicylic acid.i would recommend this to someone who doesn't have oily skin.
I really love this foundation and have been using it for years! It definitely does help acne a bit if you keep using it, the coverage is good, and it lasts a while. The only issue I have is that after wearing it for a while, my skin starts to feel greasy and it gets shiny.
I like this foundation but its coverage its light/medium. Over time it works for acne but it defiantly doesn't work right away. I do recommend this, but make sure you have the right color! The first one i got looked like the right color, but it was no where near my shade. I tried to blend it in, but it diddnt work so well. Other than that its pretty good!
This is one of the best foundations I have ever used. It's medium/full coverage. I don't even have to wear concealer ! It gives your skin this dewy glow, and evens your tone out so your skin looks flawless. Its about twelve dollars in almost any drug store, but its well worth it.
