Description

Almay’s new and improved hypoallergenic Clear Complexion Concealer skin-balancing formula works to spot treat acne and support skin’s healthy look. Ideal for acne-prone skin types, oily skin, and combination skin, the lightweight, full-coverage concealer targets and fights blemishes, leaving skin with a seamless soft-matte finish that lasts all day. In addition to a dose of maximum strength 2% salicylic acid that helps treat and prevent future breakouts, this makeup essential is now powered by prebiotics and aloe vera. Why?

Works great for acne control during the week I really need the extra help. When not dealing with acne, I switch back to regular brands to avoid the thick texture and drying out of my skin. It has good coverage when it’s needed and many options!

This fair tone concealer matches my skin perfectly! A little dab under my eyes covers all my HELP spots. There is no scent which is greatly as well as the slender bottle it's in, so it's fits nice in my makeup bag.

I have used the previous version of this product without issue for 10 years plus. I love the Almay line was hypoallergenic, BUT when I switched to the new package, I thought it'd be the same product, however I immediately broke out in redness and swelling. I used the remainder of my old rectangular version and... I was fine. Retried the new version... redness and swelling. Not the same product... boooooo!!!

I had been using this concealer for almost 10 years but the new formula doesn’t conceal anything and if you try to build it it gets caked. On top of that it has started to break out my skin again (in my 30s!). Time to move on.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is actually what I use on a regular basis - not because of acne, but, because it doesn’t irritate my skin. It gives me the coverage I need for the mom bags under my eyes without looking like I caked on layer after layer to do it. I would absolutely recommend it

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My skin tone is light to medium. This shade is perfect for my skin tone. One of the best concealer I have ever tried. Reasonable and easy to apply and blend. Great coverage. Best for everyday use. I will definitely buy this concealer.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As I already mentioned in my Almay foundation review, I don't have an acne problem. Sure, from time to time I have something to hide on my skin, but mostly I use concealers on my under-eye area. This concealer YOU CAN NOT USE UNDER EYES. Coz it's drying. Coverage Is not too bad, can hide small imperfections. Can't say anything about bigger problems, as I didn't have read experience. It lasts, doesn't oxidize. And it's all I can say. Just not my type of product.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really enjoy ALMAY as a brand, but this concealer was not meant for my skin's needs. I have sensitive combination skin and now, in the dry season here in Miami it has a big drying tendency. I mostly use concealer underneath my eyes to cover my dark circles and usually I will conceal here and there, but this Almay concealer did not do the trick. It find the formula thick and not that easy to blend on my skin. The salicylic acid dried my skin and I stopped using it because I did not want to disrupt the good work I have put into getting my skin back on track over the years. This is an acne targeting concealer and I have no doubts it would be better suited for an acne-prone skin than mine.

    WHY OH WHY DID ALMAY CHANGE THIS????

    I have been using the Almay Clear Complexion Concealer for over 25 YEARS—I loved it and depended on it for almost daily use, to cover acne, blemishes and general redness I get on my face (& occasional hives). The packaging changed, that’s no biggie, as that has happened several times over the years. The PROBLEMS ARE: 1) the shades have changed, but kept the same names: my go-to color for over 2 decades no longer matches my skin, so thanks for THAT waste of money. 2) the consistency changed: it just doesn’t cover like it used to—it’s more watery, but harder to blend, and much more noticeable when worn. 3) the applicator changed: much more product comes out in the new “doe-foot” applicator end—this is CONCEALER—to be used in small amounts and precisely applied, not glopped-on. Now, there is so much waste and I end up with a whole bunch on my fingers as I attempt to “blend it” in, but it won’t stay where I need it to on my face! I am so unhappy with this new formulation and packaging. It is beyond frustrating when cosmetic companies change (in most cases, ruin) or discontinue great, legacy products. One very simple idea: create whatever “new” products you want, but keep your traditional product in production for your loyal, legacy customers. It is obvious that this is a very popular item, well, it WAS a popular item. There are many, many customers writing reviews on many sites with complaints similar to mine. It’s one thing to try and be more inclusive by expanding the shades of products so they are usable for more people—I applaud that. However, it does not require such radical product changes (cheaper for you to produce, perhaps??), just to expand the shade range/colors of a product, and with no warning on the packaging to the consumer; meaning—not just “new” logo, but alerting customers that the shades have changed while keeping the same names. To Almay: when a company does this, and I have to go through the ordeal and expense of trying to find a different product from a different company that fits my needs, I stop buying the entire line of that company’s products. Experience has shown that it is not usually long before other products get “revamped”, and changed, for the worse. After 30+ years of being a loyal Almay customer—I’m moving on. It’s so disappointing.

    I’ve been using this concealer since middle school, but with each redesign/reformulation it’s gotten progressively worse. It used to be perfectly smooth and high coverage, but the newest formula is TERRIBLE. After just a few weeks of having it, it became all oily and separated, and it is simply trash at this point.

    I have been using this product for over 10 years and it was my go-to. Not sure why but it looks like everything has changed with the product-container was rectangular, now it’s a tube. The applicator used to be doe-foot sponge, easy to use…now it’s diamond shaped and difficult to get out of the tube. The formulation feels sticky, less spreadable, and doesn’t blend well. Color comes out lighter than what’s on the label. Idk why but I am super disappointed. You’ve lost a longtime customer. Wish I had stocked up on previous version.

    With new packaging came a new formula and it was an utter upset. I have been using this concealer for 10 years at least and it was the perfect concealer. I always ended up back with it. This new formula is not the same shade as the light I typically use; it has an orange tinge now. It doesn’t blend the same. It’s just the worst. I am not on the hunt to find a replacement and I’m so sad. Please read your reviews everywhere. Many people feel the same as I do. I really can’t believe you would change this product.

    So orange, so sheer, the applicator and tube are super annoying, and I hate hate HATE this product so much I could cry! I still breakout in my 40s (lucky me!) and have been using Almay clear complexion concealer for over a decade in light/medium (200). This change in formulation is the worst of any cosmetic I've ever used, and I'm beyond angry and upset that I now need to find a new holy grail concealer. : ( It was my GO TO for a flawless look, and it's been ruined. I'm so bitter that I will no longer be buying any Almay products at all, including the eye makeup that I've always used. Please consider bringing back the original formula - so many of your loyal customers are upset by this new formula!

    I like the coverage this concealer provides. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because I wish the applicator wand was different. I do not like the angle of the wand and it is a bit hard when applying on your skin. I would prefer it to feel softer and have a more comfortable angle on the tip itself.

    I’ve used this concealer since I was in middle school and it was my absolute favorite… But as soon as the packaging changed the formula did too. It’s now cakey, orange and doesn’t cover much at all. I’m very dissatisfied with Almay and the new concealer formula!
