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.

not full coverage

By Tia S.

Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

I have super oily acne prone skin. This leaves my skin still oily after all day wear. it also is blotchy in certain spots and doesn't blend well with a beauty blender. will not buy again.

    Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

    I've been using this for years. I have combination skin and it helps keep it balanced. (I literally have oily spots that are also simultaneously dry and flaky- ugh). My skin actually feels better at the end of the day wearing this than wearing nothing. I use it for daily coverage- erases my redness but doesn't cover opaquely- making it ridiculously easy to blend out and not needing other products to recreate definition. It comes off pretty easily (which I consider a pro bc I feel gross and trapped in heavy foundation for a daily use). It doesn't clog my pores and if I have a breakout it covers it enough and usually tames it. The biggest problem I have with it is a recent one- within the last few months I've been picking up my usual color from other physical stores and the color was off- usually too orange- and super noticeable. (And they weren't expired). Twice I've contacted neutrogena about it and they've helped me- but it seems the only place I'm getting the true color anymore is from Ulta online.

    Can exaggerate dry skin. Other than that it doesn't cause breakouts. One of my favorites.

      Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

      Bought this for the promise of clearing my breakouts. After just a couple hours use, it caused my skin to dry out immensely. A week later and I am still trying to put the moisture back into my skin. Do not recommend at all.

      Great for everyday!

      By Nydia

      from New York

      Comments about Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Makeup:

      I bought this foundation looking for something in my everyday life, I hit the jackpot with this one, my only issue is that it can exaggerate dry skin or dry patches. It is light to medium coverage but build able. be sure to moisturize before you use this if you have dry areas or dry skin.
