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.
Originally loved but had to UPDATE/Helped w/Breakouts but not long lasting
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 have spent a couple of years testing out makeups after the brand I had used since I was twelve was discontinued. Thanks to my genetics, I am prone to breakouts, and I have oily skin with severely dry patches, a hard skin type to shop for. Neutrogena finally ended my search with this makeup. It's light and natural coverage hides up any blemishes I may have, keeps my skin moisturized, yet un-oily, all day, and on top of all this, my complexion has cleared up tremendously. Thanks to Neutrogena, my face looks better with and without makeup!
Bought this last week and loved it. It stays on all day, and doesn't melt off your skin. It looks really nice and fresh on. Again I think this is great for oily/ combination skin since it has salicylic acid it in which helps preVent breakouts and helps to clear up the complextion. This is def my new favorite everyday makeup. I was impressed that this is a drug store foundation, I never have good luck with them. Usually drug store foundation are only great for dry skin. Keep in mind that I have no acne scars, and prefer a medium coverage foundation for work which what I use this for.
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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
I absolutely love this foundation! I was able to find the perfect match for my skin, and I actually have seen my skin clear up since I started using this. But sometimes it does feel like I'm putting a lot of it on. I wouldn't say that it lasts well throughout the day though, sometimes if I touch my face I see it on my fingers.
The first foundation I've liked a lot..
Before trying this out, I was using Covergirl's NatureLuxe foundation on a daily basis. I'm not sure I'm going to go back. I have dry, patchy, and rough skin, but this smoothed over nicely. I'm also extremely acne-prone--not a day has gone by since the 6th grade without me having at least a few zits. I wouldn't say this foundation worsened anything, but I'm not sure if it's doing anything to help, either. This is a medium to /almost/ full coverage, but definitely not complete coverage. I can get away with just this and no concealer, if my skin's being nice. As far as I can tell, this doesn't get cakey unless you don't apply a TON, so I'm not sure if this foundation is ideal for layering. This is only my second foundation ever, but I'll probably repurchase :D
