Hey guys! I have a question. I've had acne since I was about 11/12, (I am now 21 and it's gotten better but not completely). I have naturally very dry skin (I am not using any acne medication causing this) and I react to just about everything in makeup. I'm looking for a oil-free AND silicone-free foundation, because these have been breaking me out every time. I've had no luck for now, especially since my skin is dry and most makeup ends up settling into my dry spots. Does anyone know of a good foundation for dry acne prone skin which hasn't broken them out?
Can anyone suggest a non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic liquid foundation that I may try? I'm looking for advice from others who have nodulocystic acne and have found useful products to help cover it. I typically shy away from medicated foundation, since I wear topical medication during the day (benzoyl peroxide 2.5% gel) and at night (Differin 0.1%). I may switch back to applying a sulfur-based drying lotion beneath my makeup, since BP isn't the best idea to have on the face if spending time outdoors. I'll be taking a vacation this spring and wanting to (at least somewhat) cover my cystic acne, PIH and rolling scars during the trip. So far, Google searches on "non-comedogenic liquid foundation" and "least comedogenic foundation" only reveal vapid articles supported by "reliable" sources, such as fashion magazines. (It's obvious that most of them offer product placement, rather than unbiased reviews.) I know that I break out worse from Revlon's Colorstay oil-free foundation, which I had to give up. I more recently have been using Almay's Truly Lasting Color. (My main complaint is that it doesn't offer enough shades, so I'm blending two of them and still not getting a great skin-tone match.)
