SkinClearing? Not for me.

Pros:Blends well. Looks natural. Feels nice on skin.

Cons:Gave me new pimples. Glass bottle.

The Bottom Line: Caused me minor breakouts, therefore I cannot recommend it. It might just be my sensitive skin overreacting, so if you do buy, test it on small area.


I have very sensitive combo skin. A little oily in the T-zone, dry and rough in other places and on top of this I constantly fight a war against pimples. From fighting this war I now own a few scars. When I heard about Neutrogena Skin Clearing oil-free makeup I simply had to try it.

The Product:
This foundation comes in a 1 fl oz (30mL) glass bottle. It is oil-free, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free makeup which contains a blemish fighter (0.5% salicylic acid) which clears up blemishes and prevents future breakouts. It provides clean, fresh and natural-looking coverage. It also contains oil-absorbing powders that help control shine. It helps clear and minimize the appearance of pores. The multivitamin complex helps maintain skin's healthy look. You can buy this foundation in 12 shades, and it is available in a compact also.

My experience:
The glass bottle is beautiful, but I do not like foundations in bottles very much. First of all they can break and cause a terrible mess. Secondly a tube is much more hygienic and it is much easier to control the amount of foundation - a lot goes to waste when you pour from a bottle. I apply foundation to my clean moisturized skin with my fingertips. I think that is the easiest way, and I'm able to blend it in perfectly. I do not use foundation all over, but only on places in need. I apply a tiny bit on nose, forehead, cheeks and chin and blend. This foundation blends very well, and it covers red spots and pimples nicely. It feels good on the skin - you barely feel it and it looks natural. It also wears well. It still looks good and controls the oil on my nose after several hours. But if I put this foundation on places where I'm dry, it will make the dry spots stand out and really show the flakes. And this foundation is drying in itself. My normally well balanced nose-skin will get a little wrinkled up after having used this for a day or two. And more importantly it will make me break out. As much as I want to love this foundation I can't. After a few days of wearing this, my skin develops new pimples. It is hard to describe, but these pimples are not like my "regular" pimples. These are smaller and appear in places where I normally never get acne, such as forehead and cheeks. Now my bottle of Skin Clearing makeup is a dust-collector in my makeup cabinet.
