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!!

I’ve used the shade honey beige 70 for years but when I have a deep tan I needed something deeper. I was so happy to see them come out with this new shade which is perfect for when my skin gets a little more red in tone. This is perfect for my acne prone skin as it helped to ward off and clear up break outs. I find that I am more break out prone in the summer time due to all the fun activities , long days in the sun without sufficient hydration and use of sunscreen. Adding this and any neutrogena acne fighting products into my regimen always help keep that in check. It took me awhile to re-learn that this past summer but I won’t forget again!

I use this EVERYDAY to set my makeup!! The shade range for this product is great. I have two or three compacts laying around that I'm able to use. A summer shade, got it! A winter shade, got it! A spare, got that! This actually contains .5% salicylic acid which I find helps keep acne away the best for me. Overall I absolutely love this product and it's the only setting powder I'll use over my foundation .

The GOAT of full-coverage press powders. I’ve never found one better in my life. It’s great to keep in your purse because this product amps “powdering your nose” up to the level that looks like your makeup is perfectly fresh! I hate the look of my makeup after I’ve been at work or school all day, and this helps with that tremendously. A little pricey for a drugstore powder but I love it!!

The first thing I love about this face powder is that it has acne fighting medication in the formula (0.5% salicylic acid) so it's perfect if you have acne prone skin. It's very light weight so I use it over my tinted mousturizer. It's also a mineral powder so i never have had an issue with it clogging my pores. Normally I use bareMinerals Blemish Remedy® Foundation,

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 product worked well for me. I have had continuous acne since 13yo so this did not clear my face up but it also didn’t break it out more (which is a good thing). I have switched to a new brand but only because I switched over to cruelty-free products. I would not but again until I know for sure they are cruelty-free. Once they are then I will definitely buy again.

First of all, this doesn’t help to clear acne. Second of all, not that this matters to everyone, but I really dislike the sponge it came with. And lastly, it didn’t leave a very nice finish on the face. It just didn’t look good. For the record, I have oily skin & large pores. This powder didn’t work for me. I’m not a fan of this brand in general.

I have acne marks and am still prone to breakouts. This pressed powder is the only thing I wear on my face and it covers my scars and allows me to not have to worry about the effects it will have on my skin. My previous foundations whether powder or liquid clogged up my skin but this feels like there isn't even anything there.

Packaging is sturdy hasn’t broken in purse. When you open it there is a hidden compartment for the applicator and mirror that are separate. I love that the mirror is separate so it stays clean. It does have a very smell to it like most compacts that i dont care for. Wouldn’t recommend for dry skin. Better for those with oily skin. I think it would help women find their color if they listed what undertones each color was best for. Overall a good product and would recommend to anyone without dry skin.
