amazing!!!

By Sally sue

from San Jose CA

Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

I bought this because every foundation I have breaks me out, so when I tried this one it felt very lightweight and had good coverage. I have dry skin so I'll have to moisturize when I use it. If you have dry skin and don't put on face lotion it will look cakey. So beware!

it was ok

By gevdn

from orange juice

Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

I purchased this a while ago and the shade was way too light and I have extremely fair skin. it didn't bled well at all and totally washed me out. I repurchased it and I like it alot more. I started using a brush instead of my fingers and it blended so well. the only problem is the lightest shade was too light and the next shade was too dark. overall it's pretty good

    Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

    I really like this product more than I thought I would. I have rosacea and combination skin. On the oily side in summer, dry in the winter, but reddish complexion always. I like the lightness of the product, but love the coverage! It covers the redness w/o irritation. And not heavy at all. (I do use a dusting of powder to set).Keeps my skin looking matte too. Very important to me. I get the occasional break out and feel if this can help with that then all the better.

      This is the best foundation I have ever used. I used to hate foundation because it felt like it was always clogging my pores but this doesn't and it goes on so easily and matched with my skin so well that I don't think I'll ever have to worry again!

      Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

      I was actually disappointed in this product. I LOVE NEUTROGENA PRODUCTS! I absolutely love their products, such as face washes and everything. I decided to try their makeup because I have oily skin, but I was kind of disappointed. The very first time I applied it, it was perfect. However, with prolonged use, I believe it dried out my skin, and cause my face to peel. I have to stop using it because whenever I apply it to my nose it cause it to crack and look horrible! Similarly, I would not recommend you to put powder on your face if it is not in a place that will be oily in a second, because it will just cause the makeup to cake whether you apply a tiny bit or a lot. Also, I feel like it does not stay on long. I go to school and about two hours later the makeup is already fading. I will never buy Neutrogena makeup ever again, but I do adore their face washes and their primer.

          I have dry skin and it works great for me, Be sure to Moisurize and Prime, if you're skipping one of these steps, don't cry about dry patches.

            Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

            This is the cheapest foundation I have ever bought and it is also the BEST.

            I have tried numerous MAC foundations and most recently bought MUFE's Matte Velvet foundation. I bought the MUFE foundation because it claimed to be noncomedogenic. Low and behold, I continued to break out. The consistency was weird and almost seemed to dry my skin out instantly (which is no small feat for someone with oily skin) causing very visible cracks and wrinkles. Sidenote: To all of you fighting this war on acne, please know that the FDA does not regulate cosmetic companies claiming their products to be noncomdegenic, which basically means you can think you're doing your due diligence by buying a high priced foundation when in fact in may still contain ingredients which will clog your pores (what's up, pimples?). I came across this Neutrogena foundation when I finally decided to focus on product ingredients rather than name brands/claims made by those name brands. Salicylic acid is one of the main treatments for acne (along with benzoyl peroxide). Unfortunately, I can't sit here and tell you that this foundation has set me free of my acne issue, however, my breakouts are extremely minimal and that is more than I can say about any foundation I have ever used. Ever. EVER. Sorry, just wanted to get the point across.
            MAC products have excellent coverage, sure, but let us all be aware that there is thing as TOO much coverage (cake face). Foundations that provide what is considered full coverage tend to have a very heavy, thick consistency and when you have acne prone skin, that is the last thing you want. Your skin needs to breathe! Also, as your skin gets oilier throughout the day, a heavier foundation is usually very, VERY obvious. As soon as I felt this Neutrogena foundation on my skin, I was shocked. It's so light, goes on smooth, and blends fabulously leaving me with a natural, healthy look. You may be sacrificing a little, tiny bit of coverage, but not enough to not try this product and reap all of it's other benefits. Plus, if coverage is a primary concern of yours, you can always color correct (green concealer/primer to cancel out the redness of any inflammation) and/or use a concealer matched to your skin tone on specific problem areas.
            Other things: This stuff does not budge throughout the day. I blot the excess oil off my face about midday and I'm good to go again. The one and only thing I will say I don't like about this product is that Neutrogena doesn't provide testers so that you can get the perfect match for your skin tone so you may be standing in front of the mirror in the holding different bottles up to your face for longer than you anticipated. Not that I did that or anything.

            I have never in my life written a review this long, but I know how incredibly frustrating acne can be. And how much more frustrating it can be when you feel like you're wasting so much money to control it. I won't promise anyone that they will love this product as much as I do, but at this low price, what do you really have to lose?

              i think its blend better, with my fingertips than a brush, or try another blending brush for better aplication.
