Really like this foundation :) Its a good medium coverage. The main thing I appreciate about this product is that there is salicylic acid to help combat new breakouts. I actually prefer this when I'm on my cycle (tmi lol) but it seriously helps with my hormonal acne! It has decent staying power, it begins to fade around the 8 hour mark.

I am a very pale person and it can be very hard for me to find my shade sometimes. Buff is the closest shade to my natural color but still not spot on. This is more of a medium coverage foundation, the key to making it look nice is to always apply it with a beauty blender, if you use a brush it will streak!

I’m not sure how well it helped with my acne but It doesn’t seem to make the acne worse which is a plus.

I have dry skin and enlarge pores and it doesn’t seem to crease or make my pores more obvious.

For the price it is worth trying out. Not a go to foundation for myself but I’m sure there are people out there that feel different.

After years of buying high-end foundation that left me with no changes in my complexion, I decided to give this foundation a try. It goes on smooth and doesn’t slip like my previous foundations did. It stays on well throughout the day and has been a much better fit for me for both my skin and my wallet.

My holy grail foundation. I’ve never had good skin. This has really helped to reduce breakouts. The coverage is good without looking and feeling like a mask. It fights pimples and covers them up! I’ve used this for well over 10 years now. I’ve never found a foundation I liked better

This has been a great product for me. I don’t have terrible acne at this time, but I do have a bit of scarring and I’ve noticed that it has faded a bit and I believe that that’s due to this great product. It goes on smooth and stays all day. It comes right off when you wash your face and it leaves your skin happy.

The coverage of this foundation I would say is probably more of a medium coverage. I like it a lot. It lasts all day, and I really feel like the clear complexion lives up to its name. I’ve never had any breakouts and I don’t worry when I apply it to places where I may have a blemish. The only gripe I have about it is for places that get oily, you would benefit greatly by using a primer or a really good setting powder. It doesn’t seem to like oily skin at all. It leaves a somewhat dewy finish and let’s all sorts of products melt into it beautifully.

I love this foundation so much! It is wonderful with salicylic acid to help clear my flaws while also hiding them!! I don’t like the packing though, as the pump makes it difficult to get the last bit of product out, although it is great when completely full!

I used this for the first time and wasn't thrilled, but the second time I enjoyed the natural finish. This is best for oily and combo skin. As you can see by the oil test (12 hours) Almay has the least oil.

Usually I try and stick to high end foundations but I had been breaking out from something, I tried this to help the acne. And It helped, it’s not magic but it does help. It’s medium coverage can be buildable. It’s a nice finish and it lasts on my oily skin, for my 10 hour work days. I don’t wear it everyday because I love my high end. But it’s a real good foundation if you don’t mind drugstore .
