Best Mineral Make-Up For Acne Prone Skin?

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow acne sufferers,

So I have been a long time user of bare minerals and am looking for a replacement. It doesn't necessarily make me break out, I'm just looking for something with a little bit more coverage.

I have done quiet a bit of online research and have narrowed down my search to Jane Iredale and Pur minerals. What do you guys think of these products? Better yet, do you know of a product that is better?

All insight is appreciated. Thanks!

Some quick info about me

Skin type: fair, sensitive, acne prone

Age: 23

Current skincare regimen

  • Oral meds: Ortho tri-cyclen, spironolactone
  • Cleanser: Mario Badescu's acne facial cleanser and St. Ive's Apricot Scrub as needed
  • Toner: Mario Badescu's Special Cucumber Lotion or Nature's Chemist Acne Toner
  • Spot treatment: Tea tree oil
  • SPF: Mario Badescu's oil-free SPF 17 moisturizer
  • Night time moisturizer: Nature's Chemist Acne Moisturizer

Are powder foundations generally less likely to cause a breakout than liquid or cream ones? I've never tried a powder foundation since I always thought that It'd make my skin look dusty...

some of them can. if its looking dusty i squirt my face with a water mist bottle 2 or 3 times and then pat my face and it looks fine after that

I like Lily Lolo (a UK brand, which is now sold in the US too) -- they use minimal ingredients and are also held to higher standards than the U.S. when it comes to cosmetic ingredients. I also suggest Epic Mineral Beauty for those that are extremely sensitive.

I've been using Lily Lolo for 2 months and I am very pleased with the application and the company; they are also vegan & cruelty free.

I agree with CNA7. Lily lolo is a really good brand of mineral makeup! I higly recommend it to sensitive and acne prone skin. It doesnt give a full coverage but you can cover pimples and light redness.

Wow this stuff looks good too! I ordered some samples from them as well. Maybe I will do a comparison post after they arrive with pictures? I think that might be helpful to some people.

I like Meow Cosmetics best.

I ordered some samples from Meow Cosmetics (since I couldn't resist trying cat themed makeup) but I broke out the day after trying it on u_u;

Good idea to keep inflammation at a minimum with something calming. Also keep pores from clogging. The comedogenic scale rates the ingredients that clog pores. I would reference a brand that is low or non-comedogenic mineral makeup. www.iamgreenminded.com specializes in non comedogenic mineral stuffs. Its been super for my sister. Its cruelty-free, all natural too! :hifive: Edited by ScoobySueTheSmileDoggy

I've been using Pur Minerals for years. I've never tried any other mineral makeup, and honestly I can't imagine how it could possibly get any better than Pur Minerals. The coverage is amazing and your face feels bare. I had their primer, but I just felt like it added unnecessary weight. If you have dry skin, it *may* cause an issue (as any mineral makeup would), so moisturize!

100 % Recommend ALIMA pure. It was recommended by my holistic acne clinic. Does not break me out as it is an acne safe foundation. Yay!! : )
