how to use

  • Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication.
  • Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer 1 to 3 times daily.
  • Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to 2 or 3 times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to every other day.

Application Tip

  • For a flawless look, dab makeup lightly onto face, then blend using gentle strokes in an upward and outward motion.
  • Make sure to blend along your jawline for an overall even appearance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Acne! I was really excited to try this product because I have very bad skin and I've been struggling for years to have perfect skin by keeping up with my dermatologist and using prescription based medicine for my oily skin. Unfortunately this product did not work well with my skin, in fact it only causes more acne. Not sure why because it is meant to help clear break outs. Guess it just isnt for my skin type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving this foundation since I was in 8th grade! I started using Neutrogena SkinClearing Liquid foundation back in 2001 when I was in 8th grade. My skin has always been horribly sensitive and I needed something to cover the red spots and even my skin tone. $10 was a lot of money to spend on a makeup product when you're 14 but I was desperate! It's now 2017 and I'm still using this foundation in the same color(20 Natural Ivory). I see a noticeable difference in my skin after I apply it. It provides fantastic coverage without looking heavy or cakey. My skin just looks natural and healthy. I love this foundation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All time favorite My skin has been through it good times and its bad times and this foundation has stayed with me throughout. Its not to heavy, and not too light. It doesn't look cakey, yet it covers blemishes and scars. It easy to apple, easy to match up and you definitely won't regret it! I have nothing bad to say about this product and I've been using it for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My one and and only Foundation I been using this foundation for almost a year and there's no other better product to provide a smooth light and perfect coverage all without causing acne breakouts or clogging my pores. The only complaint I have heard is that there's not many shades which is not a problem for me because I'm super pale and pretty comfortable with Shade 20 Natural Ivory, I always had struggled to find a lighter enough foundation before and if your skin is super pale too you may relate, the difference is that this one won't turn yellowish or get sticky. Love it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from disapointed I am a teenager with acne-prone and oily skin and had started to try out makeup. I was excited to try this out because I was very pleased with other Neutrogena products but was very disappointed when it turned out very cakey and didn't blend well and didn't stay on well especially around my nose where I am VERY oily. I gave this a 2 star instead of 1 star because I noticed it might have improved my acne or at least didn't worsen it. Not impressed by this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation I have tried I have been using this foundation for a year and I must say I LOVE IT! Not only because of the "feel" and how it looks on my skin, but the smooth covering and accurate treatment I can apply if I have a breakout. It really works! I think I could stay forever with Neutrogena's products :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless natural look I have been using neutrogena skin clearing oil free liquid foundation for years to hide my combination skin problem areas such as redness, uneven skin tone, and pimples. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received from family and friends asking me my secrets to such great looking skin. As someone with many complexion issues, this makeup really helps lift my self esteem and allows me the confidence to feel good in my own skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NO MORE MAKE-UP BREAK OUTS! If you have ever had breakouts using other make up, you have to try this! I started using it a couple of years ago and have never had another break out on my face from oily pore clogging make up. I hated the cycle of wearing make up, breaking out from it, wearing more to cover the break outs and then causing more. This one has an additive that prevents break outs. It is made without the ingredients that clog sensitive skin. I am not an expert ~ just a consumer that has battled this my whole life and now I tell everyone about this wonderful product. Honestly, you have to try it!
