Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Texas Oily t-zone
I have been using this product for about 3 years maybe longer. I have very oily tzone skin. When I first apply the powder it looks flawless on my face but within 3 hours my face starts looking shiny. I have to reapply at least twice more before I make it back home after work. Where I live we have very high humidity that may be part of the problem. The colors are great I use 30 and 40 for the most part but since I spend a lot of time outdoors 50 during the summer is my choice. I m Hispanic with medium complexion. I have mild redness on my cheeks and this powder makes it a lot less noticeable not only because of the coverage but because the ingredients are soothing to my skin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by swksmom Just as good as more expensive brands
To help with acne, I initially started out using another brands mineral powder. Problem I had is that the minimum auto ship required by "members" was way more than I needed/wanted, and very costly.
I switch to another brand that I liked (their acne products), that auto shipped to "members" as well. They were more affordable, but they discontinued the mineral powder.
So, upon extensive research I stumbled upon Neutrogena and I couldn't be happier. It works GREAT!!! No acne from the product and is so much more affordable. I use a clear primer before applying the powder and it stays all day!
The ONLY think I don't care for is the make up brush included with the powder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Mineral Sheers Loose Powder
This is the first time I have used this product. I normally don't wear powder make-up because my skin reacts poorly to it. So far (1 week) this product has given a nice touch of color without any skin reactions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0Â by Khipper Good Powder, Not My Skin Tone
As I suffer from incredibly oily skin, I'm always looking for a powder that both has good coverage, doesn't make me break out, and keeps my skin from looking slicked with grease. I got this powder as a Christmas present with my mother's fervent wishes that I would finally find a product that worked for me. And it did! It actually works pretty alright! The only downside? The palest shade available is still too dark for my Irish white skin tone :( perhaps it'll suit me better when summer comes around, but right now it's a good 2 shades towards the tan side for me. Still, I recommend this powder to people with oily skin :)

I'm really impressed with this product, although not for my skin type. It gives a lovely finish and coverage, and is extremely quick and easy to apply with the flat brush that reaches narrow places like temples, under eyes, and the nose. I think I'm a little too oily for this particular formula. Within a few hours, my t-zone is gleaming with oil, so great product for normal/dry complexions. If you can give us a loose-powder formula that is oil free, I'll be all over it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by Mellowyellow The Best I've Tried
I'm older, with problem skin. This is the best powder foundation I have ever tried. It leaves your skin feeling soft, good coverage for red areas and scars, and has just a little luminosity that makes you look fresh and glowing.

Love Mineral Sheers! Looks natural and gives you nice soft coverage. It is easy to dispense. Just tap the side of the container by the little holes and then apply with a big powder brush.

I've gone through two of this powder.
I don't recommend this for those who have really oily skin like mine- I mean 5 hours into my morning and my face is already shiny- that kind of oily.
- the pearl- like dust that is incorporated, is either the SPF, or just added shimmer, gives a healthy glow when first applied, but is an enemy glow for those with oily skin like mine.
The sifter can get messy, the brush is useless... It just adds to the price of the whole product. I wouldn't say this is travel-friendly.
Neutrogena, feel free to leave out the silly fan brush and set the price at 10 even.
I've been using nude 40 and my oily skin turns it into an unattractive orange tone within a couple of hours;keep in mind I don't use primer- just gel moisturizer.
