Review [2]: Neutrogena Skin-Clearing Oil-Free Makeup

{Originally posted on October 6, 2010}

 What: Neutrogena Skin-Clearing Oil-Free Makeup
Color: 60 Natural Beige
Amount: 1 fl. oz. (30 ml)
Price: I've seen it range $9.99-$13.99 depending on the store

Description from Neutrogena Website:

"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 and won't clog pores
*12 shades"

My experience:

1). Quick easy application with fingers=great for when you're in a rush
2). Light to borderline-medium coverage
3). Dries COMPLETELY matte
4). Doesn't treat acne I already have, but I do feel that it somewhat helps prevent more acne
     (I see only about 1/2 the amount of new acne popping up vs. other liquid foundations)
5). This formula exaggerates any dry areas you may have. To help alleviate this problem,
     I applied a heavier moisturizer to any dry patches first before applying the foundation.

Recommended for:
This foundation is best for people with oily, acne-prone, or oily-combination skin who want a light-feeling & light coverage foundation to cover up some discoloration or problem areas.
