                You have to definitely moisturize your face before putting on this product. I typically have oily skin and I have to pat down my face with this product a lot. However, it looks natural on your face, which is the thing I like most about this product. It's not necessarily the cheapest thing there is, but it works.

                • Q:

                  I have dry acne-prone skin on my forehead. Will this cause breakouts? My breakouts are moderately dry but the rest of my face is normal and acne free. Any suggestions? (I have fair skin and neutral undertones) Thanks in advance!

                    A:

                    Hi. Thank you for your interest in Clinique. This foundation should not cause you to breakout. It is oil free and tested to be non acne genic on skin. It was tested with people that also suffer from acne and was proven to not clog pores.
                    I suggest trying products like acne solutions clinical clearing gel or Cliniques Clarifying Lotion to remove dead skin that can cause breakouts.
                    Silk Porcelain and Silk Shell are the lightest shades with a Neutral undertone in this formula. We offer free color matching and sampling each day in all doors that carry a FULL line of Clinique product and look forward to working with you soon. Have a great day!

                    A:

                    Hi! This is a nice foundation option. I would start by exfoliating a bit more. If you are noticing flakiness, it is likely that your skin is in need of this on a daily basis, which is normal. You have several options. I am noting several below for you to explore.
                    Clinique Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer
                    Clinique Clarifying Lotion #3
                    Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Serum

                    I believe once your skin is prepped, you will enjoy trying a new foundation. We also offer free color matching and sampling in all Ulta stores that carry a FULL line of Clinique product. We would love to work with you to find the perfect match!

                  would this be a good choice for over 60 skin? If not, can you recommend a foundation from
                  clinique. I like medium coverage.
