Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil-Free Liquid Makeup goes on smoothly and blends into the skin seamlessly. The color was even and nicely corrected my skin tone for a really nice look. The formula as nice and light and didn't bother my sensitive skin. The coverage was long lasting and didn't require any touch-ups. I would recommend it!

I purchased this foundation in the US not too long a go but I haven't seen it in Canada so I don't think it's available in stores though you could probably find it online. I have acne prone skin so I liked the idea of an oil, shine reducing foundation with salicylic acid to help clear my skin. I've been using it for a little while and I do notice a bit of difference in my skin. Pimples clear up faster though I don't notice a huge difference in the amount. I think for the most part, the % of salicylic acid is too low to show a drastic improvement but used regularly with other products, I think it's definitely a good part of a skincare/beauty system.

As far as the actual foundation formula goes, I like the coverage and it has decent lasting power. My one complaint is that it isn't moisturizing enough. It doesn't glide on smoothly like other foundations and it's a bit too thick and heavy. I've been finding that lighter foundations like UD Naked usually look better once the makeup oxidizes and this one tends to settle and look a bit cakey. I think it would do better for very oily skin and in the winter not in this humid summer weather. I would like better colour selection too.

I tend to sweat a lot so I would end up with really oily skin which would lead to acne problems. So when I went shopping, I found this product and decided to try it since I wanted to cover my acne while treating it at the same time. When I tried it, it did its job and it didn't dry out my skin too much. But you should still keep in mind that a lot of acne fighting products do dry out your skin a little to strip the oil that is causing the acne off your skin. So this product should only be used with people who have an issue with acne on a daily basis. But overall, this is a great product and I highly recommend it. :)

having loved neutrogena's healthy skin foundation so much, i thought this one would be another favorite. but it turns out i ended up being really disappointed. i found that it was too harsh on my skin. it really dried me out and broke me out even more. i tried mixing it with my moisturizer to make a tinted moisturizer instead and the coverage was still fab, but i kept breaking out. i think the salicylic acid or perhaps another ingredient or two were too much for me, it stung a bit and even when i hadn't applied any near my eyes they would burn and water.
just didn't suit me but might be good for someone less sensitive.

Hello, rediscovered product! I never really liked this much at first, but I decided to give it another shot and I'm on my THIRD bottle! I love it!

The finish (I use a Beauty Blender/makeup sponge) is flawless! The coverage is nice and it doesn't dry my skin out or make it look cakey/patchy. It's long lasting and doesn't irritate or break me out.

Although Neutrogena products are usually a little pricey for drugstore products, this is definitely worth it. Can't wait to try the powder! Lol.
