I ran out of my high end foundation and decided to give this a try since I had a couple break outs. I've been using this for 5 days and I've developed a new blemish every single day. It does not last throughout the day and it easily rubs off even while using a setting spray. If I could I would return it but I've used up a good amount trying to give it a chance. Will certainly not buy again.
I was so excited to find a “skin clearing” foundation since I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin. BB creams tend to work well with my skin but don’t offer the foundation coverage I want, so when I found this I thought it would be the best of both worlds. Sadly, this foundering has made my acne 10x worse. Adult acne is already embarrassing but now... I’m so sad that my skin does not like the product as the buff 40 color is exactly my skin tone.

I was super excited to use this since my skin breaks out very easily with foundation. I used this a few times and I’ve had MORE BREAKOUTS! I tried it with primer and then eventually without, and every time I find a new breakout on my face. I had to throw this out immediately. Such a waste of money

I bought this foundation a few weeks ago after reading all the wonderful reviews, so I had very high hopes that it would help my acne and my skin. I was very disappointed. My face and neck has now become very dry and flaky. It looks awful and it has not controlled my acne at all, only dried up and irritated my skin. Definitely do NOT recommend for the price of this bottle.

I love this foundation! It is so smooth and feels amazing! Prevents zits for sure. I am very fair with cool undertones. The lightest 2 shades offered are too dark to use unless I have a “deep” tan. Due to cancer risks of tanning I try to no longer tan. Now my lightest shade is too dark :( PLEASE CONSIDER making this foundation in 2 more lighter shades as well as making it available in darker shades. I was standing in a store looking at Neutrogena brand foundations with another girl who was African heritage. Every Neutrogena shade was too light for her and too dark for me. I’m not even as light as human skin can go, nor was she as deep toned as human skin can get. This foundation is the BEST of the BEST on market amongst all brands! It is the BEST Neutrogena has ever made. If Neutrogena could step up and make this in lighter and deeper tones it would include such a larger market!
