                  This is the best powder I've ever used! I've been using it for several years now. Very natural-looking and provides nice coverage to set makeup. Matches skin tone nicely. Almay has great products!

                        I love Almay products and this is a great, natural-looking powder that is not too powdery at all. Being pressed makes it easier to not use too much. Great for sensitive skin too. The best powder I have ever used!

                                Daughter goes thru a ton of this along with Rimmel, she uses the lightest shade. Not sure if its doing any favors for her acne but she likes it and the price isn't bad, esp. w/Ulta coupons.
