Review for: Natural Ivory, Honey Beige, Natural Beige more...
Whenever I run out of my Mac powder this is my go-to back up. The colors tend to match my liquid foundations well and provide good coverage and last most of the day. I get spray tans once a week but when I skip a week and find myself pale again, I use this as a foundation so I don’t end up spending a ton of money while still using a shade that makes my current skin tone. The product can sometimes get cakey if I’m not careful but it’s easily fixable. I work 12 hour shifts in a hospital and it stays on for the majority of the day but does get a little blotchy if I get sweaty.

I’ve been using this powder for several years now and it’s my go to!i don’t like a translucent powder, I like this because of it’s silky consistency and the tint. I’m super fair with pink undertones and this doesn’t yellow/orange me out. I don’t know about the skin clearing aspect of the product as I don’t have problem skin. But I can tell you is oil absorbing. I lay down moisturizer all over my face, then a layer of foundation and concealer, then contour, then dust my face and neck with this. I apply highlighter last so the powder doesn’t dull it!! Highly recommended!!

This is one product that has actually helped my skin as I'm wearing it. I've tried their liquid foundation and in my opinion it sucked. Wayy too drying. However my very first foundation ever was this powder foundation. Just something light coverage, very soft feeling, and has the amazing skin clearing qualities. If I forgot to wash my face before bed I didn't even wake up worried because this foundation is just great for your skin. I've never had any problems with this foundation. I would definitely recommend as a nice light coverage foundation.

Review for: Natural Ivory more...
I’m going to start off by saying that I don’t think this is skin clearing at all. I think if anything it’s going to keep any existing pimples from being slightly less inflamed from make up but it isn’t going to magically solve skin issues.

For a powder I feel like it covers well without being cakey. I did notice I have to touch up slightly more often but overall it’s one of favorite drug store powders despite its few flaws. I would definitely purchase it again.

I think this is the best powder foundation in the drugstore! This is amazing especially for the price. It blends so well. It also doesn’t feel cakey on my skin. It is my color even if the color doesn’t really fit my skin. It blends into the skin very well. I highly recommend this for anyone starting out make up. My favorite product by Neutrogena so far.

This is he only powder I typically use. I’m a me prone and terrified that foundations will make me break out worse. This is made for acne prone skin, and feels lightweight. It’s not an obvious powder and blends in to my face well. Sometimes my oil really breaks through, and the colors don’t really have a ton to choose from. But overall excellent.

Review for: Natural Ivory more...
I think this is very similar to other drug store compacts in my needed shades. Gives some coverage but not enough to be my daily go to. Something that I’d use for touch ups during the day, not my base I’d use in the morning. Very light and smooth. Good for someone just starting off or someone young with minimal skin issues.

Perfect color for my skin! Gives a very even look all around perfect for combination skin which I have. Doesn’t crease and last the whole day. Doesnt go on cakey and doesnt crease which i like and prefer powder foundations because of that. Applies well over concealer and it smells very fresh which is a huge plus.

My favorite drug store brand of cosmetics especially when it comes to foundations and powders. A little more expensive than other drug store brands but very much worth it. I feel like the skin clearing line really does help keep skin clear. Nice barely there scent. Not too heavy. Great amount of coverage.

Does this actually help clear your skin? Also does it do pretty good coverage powder-wise?

Does this really help the skin with acne? What's the active ingredient? Is it salicylic?
