      I can tell a huge difference in my skin when using this product versus other foundations. I've found that other "clearing" foundations only irritate my skin. Buildable coverage. I use with a primer and setting spray and it gets me through the workday 8-5), no problem!

      Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

      I have fair combination skin. I have NEVER had a problem with my face being dry. This dried the non-oily parts of my face out SO BAD that I was starting to think I had eczema and was on the cusp of making a dermatologist appointment. Luckily, I made the connection that this foundation was the cause and stopped using it. Within days my skin was back to normal. Do not use this unless you have oily skin! Especially if you use any other acne treatment with the same active ingredient!

      Not the Best

      By Emily

      from Missouri

      Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

      I have problematic skin, so I thought this foundation would maybe help set my acne at ease. I didn't notice a difference, but if anything my skin actually got a little bit worse! I use facial washes with salicylic acid and they don't irritate my acne, but some reason, this foundation didn't agree with my face. Another con is the color selection, as the lightest shade is still too dark for me.

      Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

      I LOVE this product. Compared to my Revlon Colorstay which is already known to be the holy grail for oily-combo skin, this comes head to head. Unlike the Revlon Colorstay, this feels so much more lighter and can be a light to buildable full coverage without looking cakey. Easy to blend and leaves a demi matte finish. Stays on all day, but of course I did have to powder after 5 hours but hey... 5 hours is a long time. The only complaint I have is the shade range. The only true light/medium yellow underdone shade they have available is Natural Beige. This shade is bit too dark for me, but still looks great.

        I use this as concealer... it works just as well. Covers and blends really well. Found my perfect shade. Also helps to not clog pores but rather treat acne. Love love love.

          Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

          Needless to say I was so disappointed with this purchase. A fellow u-tuber suggested it for my oily skin and it was a total fail. Not only did it not stay on but the coverage wasn't all that great. No matter what primer it was paired up with and I even powdered off with " Cotty Air spun" and nothing. This just didn't do it for me other than a perfect match on the color, I honestly don't have anything else.

          Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

          I've been using this stuff for about a year now, I started out using the buff but it ended up not matching my neck and other areas when winter rolled around so I went with the natural ivory. I used to really like this I never have had to just add layer upon layer for good coverage a thin layer did OK. The only this I don't like is that it barely did anything to help my skin and after about 2 hours after application it looked extremely greasy and gross on my skin. I've had many people tell me this, so now I'm off looking for another to better help me. In all I've come to actually hate this foundation... I won't buying it again

          Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

          I purchased this after getting many recommendations on it for oily skin. However, this made me break out (it's for acne skin...?) and caused me to become the biggest grease ball I have ever been. I did have great coverage initially, decent smell, but after about an hour, forget about it. I will say though, just because this was quite terrible for me, give it a try for yourself. Everyone's skin is different, so I can't say stay away just because I had a nightmare of a time with it haha
