Almay Clear Complexion in Buff

As a young adult who's struggled with acne my whole life this product is a lifesaver. I have very dry/sensitive skin and most foundations irritate my skin or worsen my acne. Lasts all day with a primer, without a primer it lasts a good 8 hours. I find that you do need to set it with a powder/setting spray as it does tend to sink into the skin a tad too much. With having a dry skin, I also appreciate the fact that it has a dewy finish, doesn't cling to my dry patches and looks like skin. Absolutely amazing at clearing breakouts and healing old scars.
I would say that it's medium coverage, I find that I have to go in with concealer to cover any acne scars or pimples that show through.
The only complaint I have is that they're colour range is way too limited. As a pale princess, even their lightest shade is a bit dark for me and I need to use a foundation mixer with it.
TLDR: Great for sensitive/dry skin. Lasts at least 8 hours. Do use a setting powder/spray.

Almay Clear Complexion Foundation

My skin is prone to breakouts so I have to be careful what foundation I use.
In a search to find a foundation that not only wouldn't cause breakouts but would help treat and prevent them, I found this. I have been using it for about 6 months and so far I am happy with it and keep repurchasing it.
The pump bottle is a must when it comes foundation for me.
It isn't a full coverage foundation, so I do have to apply a dot of concealer to any marks, but it isn't cakey at all and looks quite natural on my skin.
I'd say it lasts almost all day, on hot days it may require a touch up after about 6 hours.
I cant say that I have noticed a huge difference in preventing breakouts unfortunately but I figure that it is still much better for my skin then other foundations since it contains ingredients that fight breakouts. I do think it helps heal breakouts a bit faster though.
It is quite expensive if you are on a beauty budget like I am (I don't generally like to spend more than R200 on a foundation) But I will keep using this til I find something I prefer.

almay clear complexion

This has become my new go - to foundation. It glides on effortlessly and hides blemishes as the product promises. For some darker marks i need to layer the foundation a bit more. My face looks flawless all day long from 7am all day at work until I remove it around 8pm. When wearing this product i am often complimented on my skin and i have to confess it's all due to my Almay foundation. Retails for R220 at Clicks and worth every penny.

Almay clear complexion

Almay clear complexion is an affordable, unique foundation that helps repair and protect the skin against unwelcome breakouts. Almay clear complexion is perfect for young adults who struggle with blemishes and can’t find a cover up that doesn’t irritate the skin. It's light and very comfortable to wear. I’ve been using Almay clear complexion for two weeks and even after a day at work and a good workout my skin feels soft and fresh. It feels great and I would recommend it to anyone.
