Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by fairskinnedinAZ Matte skin all day
I just started using the Neutrogena Healthy Skin make up line. I use the Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser and the Healthy Skin SPF 15 face lotion already. I had been using Almay Clear Complexion foundation and Smart shade Smart balance pressed powder, but unfortunately the foundation/powder left my skin looking chalky and it caked up after all day wear on my forehead and chin, so I decided to switch to Neutrogena. So far, I have no complaints about this product. I have sensitive, combination skin and the one thing I love about the powder is that it doesn't accentuate my dry skin patches like other cheaper make ups did. I feel that the powder gives me a matte all day finish. I never have to touch up throughout the day. I also like how the foundation and powder cover my blemishes and doesn't contribute to my break outs. I have fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes, and I don't feel that the foundation or powder settles into these areas.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by Beach mom Great powder/ terrible packaging!
I have always used Neutrogena products but am very disappointed with the case. You have to flip up the top to get to the applicator, flip it down to get to the powder then flip it back up to use the mirror. When the mirror is flipped up so you can use it , it becomes so top heavy it tips over! Not sure I will purchase this product again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0Â by ang13 Terrible for my Oily Skin
My T-Zone gets SOOOOO oily, it's almost dripping. Not really, but it does get very oily. My nose also gets very red. This powder does NOT hold up on my skin AT ALL. When I first put it on, it looks GREAT. Perfect color, coverage, and texture! But 45 minutes into my day and it's gone. My skin is red and oily. Really think about this if you have oily skin. I still use it every day, though, because it's the only powder I have at the moment, but there is literally no point in me wearing it because it just fades away. :(

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by keropie Good powder. Weak packaging
The product itself was good. I loved how it felt on my skin. It wasn't heavy and it didn't feel dry. The only con i have on this is the packaging. I dropped it once on my carpet floor and it broke into pieces. other than that its a really good powder.

I love this foundation! I was using bare minerals and was looking for a less expensive powder. This is perfect! It goes on so smoothly and does not aggravate my sensitive, acne- prone skin. I am very white, so the fair shade is perfect. I will say that this does not last as long as the bare minerals, but it is so worth it!

I picked this up in Light-Medium. I usually have to pick up a color lighter than my skintone because they'll tend to darken on top of my foundations. This powder doesn't really do that. I expect that's because of the high amount of sunscreen (TiO2 ?).
( I should have realized. Doh. )
I might pick up the shade in Medium but I'll more than likely just adjust this with a bronzer. I agree with others that it would be nice to have more colors in darker shades.
So far i like this product and think it gives a good amount of extra coverage over my Healthy Skin tinted moisturizer. I also really appreciate the antioxidants and other extra skin care benefits that Neutrogena puts into their products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by tonya a More darker shades
I love the neutrogena healthy skin line of foundation. I tried the powder in the medium since its the darkest they have but it is still to light for me (in the winter months at that) and I need to apply a little bronzer on top of it. I have an olive complexion and would rather just use the powder by itself, so I now am using a different brand of powder and not to happy with it. I wish neutrogena would make darker shades in the healthy skin powder and now with the summer coming up I will need a darker shade and definitely won't be able to use the healthy skin powder in medium. I only use powder in the summer as well. So I am kind of bummed about this ;(

I had used Clinique pressed powder for years and was looking for a less expensive option that would still be good for my skin. I agree with other reviewers that the shades are quite light. I started with Fair/Medium and had to "upgrade" to Medium. This is a first for me. I feel my skin color is on the light side. When I first put on the powder it looks just fine. After a few hours, it has started collecting in my wrinkles. (Which are not that deep... yet.) By the end of the day, it just plain looks bad. I guess I will be going back to Clinique as I had no issues with their product except the price.
