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.

    Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

    I have been using this product for about 2 weeks now and I am still in love with it. I was looking for something to cover my spots and blemishes without clogging my pores, drying me out, or causing breakouts. And so far, that has been this product.

        Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

        I love, love this foundation. I am Native American so I tend on the side of oily, acne-prone skin even at 20. I also have warm undertones, so finding affordable foundation shades that match my skin tone without making me look gray can be difficult. I bought the skin-clearing foundation in the shade Honey. I love this foundation because the salicylic acid treats my acne throughout the day and I apply it on top of a spot treatment and moisturizer. The acid ensures that my skin never gets that "gross" feeling I often end up with when my skin builds up oils. This formula is beautiful for mixing with my other foundations that I can't quite find the right shade in so that I can get the warm undertones and the acne treatment with other finishes and formula types as well (one example of a great formula to mix with is the Physician's Formula BB cream which has great coverage but cool/neutral undertones).

          Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

          This product works really well if you use a beauty blender to blend it in. While you can apply more for fuller coverage, it can get a bit "cakey". Good product however for light to medium coverage.

          Doesn't necessarily irritate my acne but hasn't improved it either. Light coverage, not very long lasting. My skin is not oily but product does look cakey after a couple hours, especially around nose.

            Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

            I used this in 2013 and remember having a tough time with this not getting super greasy on me. Since then it's been such a struggle to find a foundation that is full coverage, doesn't transfer and is my perfect in-between shade. Go to 2017 (now) and I decide to buy this in my original shade of Nude 40 to test it out once more. Turns out that this is an "oldie but a goodie"! It's super full coverage on my red, acne-prone skin, keeps me super matte due to the Salicylic Acid, and the shade is so spot on that if I miss a certain part of my face you can barely tell. I have no idea why so many other reviews say this is not long lasting, poor coverage and greasy because on me it's the exact opposite. I'm not sure why it has such a different experience for me now versus in 2013 but I'm sure loving it and not complaining! Best Foundation in general, not just for being drugstore.
