I am looking for drugstore brand makeup products that are safest for acne prone skin. I have been dealing with acne since 7th grade and now i am about to enter college this fall. I have never had a day where my skin has been clear. I have tried everything and my confidence is just shot. I recently found the regimen and started this week with drugstore brands. I know that the best thing for my skin would be to stop makeup all together but i just dont have the confidence to go out of the house without it. This is why i am looking for the safest makeup products to use while on the regimen. Thanks for any help :)

I use studio gear makeup which is available at ulta. Lasts a long time and works well for my crazy skin.

For drugstore brands, i used neutrogena before that. Never had any problems with it, fairly inexpensive and had a nice color selection.

L'Oreal's True Match looks the most natural and is non-comedogenic.

However I have an allergy to gluten, and I'm pretty sure it contains wheat so it gives me little bumps all over. :( Sad really, because it really had an amazing finish and is super lightweight. I use Almay's Clear Complexion foundation, never breaks me out. But feels really heavy I will admit.

I've just started the regimen with store bought products too :)

Almay is the brand Dan recommends for people who want to wear makeup while on the regimen as their products are non-comedogenic among other things. In the past I've used Almay Clear Complexion foundation but I found the shade range to be to yellow for my skin. Before I started the regimen I was using Revlon Colorstay and Covergirl TruBlend. I don't know how 'good' they are for the skin though or to use while on the regimen. I might have to find something else or look at another Almay products maybe.

Read over this again / if you haven't already too http://www.acne.org/makeup.html It has some good tips on application / ingredients to avoid.

I like Studio Gear as well, the powder foundation. It's never made me break out or get enlarged pores.

I like a lot toleriane teint compact, it´s a la roche-posay product and I prefer it for summer because i find it lighter, I don´t know if it´s available in the States, in Spain I can find it on farmacies.

And for the rest of the year I love dermablend (vichy), it´s really miracolous, it is said that it covers even tatoos :)

I've started the regimen last week and have already seen results by beginning of 2nd week. I have switched out in terms of cleanser and moisturizer as I have been testing out the products I already have and wanted to know if I could continue using them along with the BP. I find that my foam cleansers (Bliss, Shiseido) continues to be effective - but key was to actually build up a foam prior to putting the product on my face. My skin had burning sensation if I place the product directly onto it. The foam build up was key factor in eliminating any irritation that occurred and I actually found it to be more effective. With the dryness that was inherent with BP - I found that Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel was really good in addressing it - although I only use that at night - for am - I am considering the recommended Eucerin. Although it is pricey - I use the Cushioning compact CC cream from Iope - a brand of Amore Pacific - they have their own version as well - I love the coverage and excellent for oily skin especially in hot, humid weather where you have the added problem of perspiration. Plus you have that 50+ Protection from the sun which is important because BP is a bleaching agent as well - so sun and BP do not go well together. So you may want to consider a multi-tasking product that has the coverage you need plus the sun protection in one - I recommend any Korean bb or cc creams - they tend to have both - Dr Jart Black Label detox provides decent coverage and they sell small versions in Sephora if you want to try it out - hope this rant helps.
