Anyone Know Of Good Acne Free Foundations?

9 posts in this topic

In need of a good foundation for oily skin that wont break me out and give me more pimples?

I've been using Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin for a few weeks now and I haven't experienced any breakouts with it. Gives good buildable coverage and it keeps my face pretty matte.

I love my Almay truly lasting color foundation. I never breaks me out like all my other foundations. And it covers my acne scars perfectly.

Revlon Colorstay for combination/oily skin. - contains salicylic acid too. Make sure you don't get the normal/dry skin one because it contains ingredients which will break you out.

Rimmel lasting finish 25 hour is also very good and more natural looking, however it is not for pale skin. Even the shade ivory is at least as dark as a mac nc25


Morning Routine:

- Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz

- Hyaluronic Acid Serum (homemade)

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (on acne prone areas)

- Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Cream (10% Glycolic Acid)

- SK:N Sunscreen SPF 30

- W7 Camera Ready Primer

Evening Routine:

- Lush Ultrabland + Washcloth

- Soap & Glory ULTIMELT Hot Cloth Cleanser + Washcloth

- Boots Time Delay AHA Toner

- Differin 0.1% cream

- Hazelnut oil with rosemary + clary sage (stops oil production)

- Vitamin C Serum (also homemade) OR

- Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum

Once/Twice a week:

- Green Clay Mask (+ salicylic acid)

- Exfoliate with No7 skin cleansing brush

what about makeup forever's foundations?

I went to the store and asked for a sample of the Makeup Forever HD Foundation (It is about the size of a disposable paint cup) and I used it a couple of days and I did not experience a breakout. I did notice that if you don't use a primer it will slide all over your face though.


My Personal Log Detailing my adventures from "Natural to Not".

CURRENT REGIMEN:
(AM)
Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar for Acne Prone Skin, Clindamycin Phostphate Topical 1%, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 45, Equate Absolutely Beaming Daily Moisturizer, (I mix this and the sunblock together and the sunblock helps mattify the moisturizer), 1x Vitamin D3, 1x Borage Oil, 2x Burdock Root, 1x Vitamin E, 1x Vitamin A, 2x Calcium, 1x Vitamin B Complex, 1x Vitamin C.
(PM)
Ortho-Tri Cyclen Lo, Cetaphil Anti-Bacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar, Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid, Clindamycin Phosphate Topical 1%, Grapeseed Oil.

I have to agree with nicmic62 and say Revlon Colorstay combination/oily skin is really good. I've been using it for almost 2 years now and it doesn't cause my to break out at all. Another good brand is the Maybelline Fit Me range but I don't use that because none of their shades are fair enough in colour for me.


My Skincare Routine

Morning:
Face Wash: Thursday's Plantation Tea Tree Oil Acne Face Wash
Sunscreen: Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face SPF50+ (Matte Finish)
Make-up: Rimmel Match Perfection, Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

Night:
Make-up Remover: Nivea Daily Essentials Facial Cleansing Wipes (Fragrance Free)
Face Wash: Thursday's Plantation
Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash
Gently Scrub Face with Table Salt
100% Witch Hazel Toner
Apply Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy Skin Resurfacing Cream

what about makeup forever's foundations?

I have very picky skin, and Make Up For Ever's Mat Velvet + is awesome.

It has buildable coverage, makes skin look nice and matte, and, most importantly, doesn't irritate or break out my skin. It's expensive ($36), but totally worth it. wub.png I have tried many different foundations, from drugstore to high-end, and this has been the kindest to my complexion. It will work best if your skin is normal to oily. Since it mattifies, it can also highlight flaky areas. I recommend moisturizing any dry spots before using it.
