SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup

Buff

Item #: 2201362 Size: 1.0 oz

Don't just cover up, clear up! Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup is the first and only liquid foundation formulated with MicroClear technology to not only treat blemishes, but to also help prevent emerging breakouts. MicroClear technology boosts the power of salicylic acid by breaking through oil and unclogging pores for fast acne relief. Its shine-free, natural coverage lets skin breathe and won't clog pores.

Natural look, breathable feel. MicroClear technology treats and helps prevent breakouts. Controls shine. Won't clog pores.
Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to every other day. Application Tip: For a flawless look, dab makeup lightly onto face, then blend using gentle strokes in an upward and outward motion. Make sure to blend along your jawline for an overall even appearance.

      Good drugstore foundation for my acne-prone skin

        Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

        I was able to find my shade for this foundation because I got a free sample card of Neutrogena foundations, and one of them was a good match for me. Plus, I tend to break out, so I needed a foundation with acne-fighting ingredients. This is a good drugstore foundation for me. My only wish is that it had a pump at the opening. Although I close the bottle when I'm done, the open top does allow air in, causing the foundation to oxidize, & thus change color overtime.

            Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

            I had a little trouble color-matching myself but in the end this is a great foundation. I hate when I can feel a foundation sitting on my skin, but this foundation feels wonderful!!!! It's like I'm not wearing any makeup. Just a heads up this foundation dries a little quicker than most for me, so apply with a damp beauty sponge for flawless results. If you have trouble with perioral dermatitis like I do this will not bother it too much if you use a good primer.

            Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

            I came back to this product after not having used it for years. It still works as advertised; keeps FUTURE breakouts to a minimum and is a makeup that nourishes your skin rather than causing breakouts. Provides medium coverage so to cover up trouble spots you will need to apply layers or dab your skin with it. Works best to apply powder blushes AFTER it's totally dry or you'll wipe it right off. Creme blushes blend while it's still very fresh because it dries quickly but it will change the pigment of the blush. Recommended for long wear especially in summer weather because it doesn't melt off. As far as I can tell, it's waterproof; It withstood my sweat and the pool.

            Thick, so use oil, but I love it!

            Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

            I bought this foundation after ItsJudyTime said it was one of her top 3 drugstore foundations. I decided to pick up this product because and I have the same skin type and same problems with our skin. When I first used this oil, it was way too thick for my liking. I like a more thin foundation that I can make fill coverage if I desire. Now when I use it I put it in 1-2 drops of my Tarte Maracuja Oil and it blends so beautifully into my skin! I use my Real Techniques Beauty Blender.
