Good for everyday

I decided to try this make up after I started breaking out a couple of month ago. It gave good coverage and I believe it helped with the bumps around my mouth area. Although it was quite good I decided to try a mineral foundation which I believe works better for me, but I have been switching between the two if I want to go for a different texture.

Decent colour range

Pretty good staying power on oily skin & has some very light
Colours in the ivory/fair which is helpful. Not so sure if it has worked for blemishes but I would repurchase again for the colour pay off.

Good, non-clogging foundation

I have been wearing this foundation for 2 weeks now, and can notice a definite difference in my skin. I have adult acne on my chin and jawline, and whilst this foundaiton is only a light to medium coverage at best, I find it doesn't clog my skin and encourage my acne. I do still have to conceal quite a lot in the areas I have acne scarring, however I love the look and finish of the foundation.
I have quite oily skin, and so far this foundation lasts most the day without sliding off.

Great for everyday wear!

I sought this out after reading the article on BH for "7 of the best: skin fixing foundations". This seemed to have the best reviews.

I'm 27, since my 20 began I started suffereing from really bad white heads around my chin and nose. I've tried all sorts of foundations over time but most of them seem to dry out my skin too much which makes getting rid of white-heads difficult, often resulting in scarring.

This product is totally the opposite. I feel like my skin is moistened but treated at the same time. It's non- suffocating. I've been using it for 2 weeks and no longer have break-outs on my chin - seriously, like they just upt and left. I've had a couple of small ones on my nose but rather than taking days to come out, they appear, pop out easily and that's it!

The coverage is perfect for every-day wear. It stays on all day and doesn't give you that greasy look. I bought this in "buff" as I have slightly olive skin. It says you can apply it up to three times a day but I find using it once in the momrning is fine. If I'm going somewhere special in the evening, I know I can reapply if I feel the need.

Great price, totally worth it. I'll be sticking with it for a while. This is the first product I've tried of Almay's and I'm very impressed.


Every-day wear for those suffering from white heads.

onto my 2nd bottle!

I had tried this foundation previously and while I did like it it was the wrong colour for me. It looked right but was too pink toned. This time I bought buff which is a much much lcloser match. When I had beige I had to water it down with a damp sponge or moisturiser so it would match but i loved the formula. I think it is very similar to to the maybelline fit me but alot less oily on the skin. I compare it to the fit me because it is that seemless and blendable and feels soo incredibly nice and light on the skin. It does not cover dark spots but certainly does well on blemishes ( not the broken skin type but the 3d bump type).
My last tube had lasted my almost a year (taking into account i diluted it abit when i used it). So im guessing this will last me a while. I find that it covers pored fairly nicely but does not blend well into the forehead and I would not suggest it to those with fine lines. The only down side is that it has no pump! This is incredibly annoying because if you tip it out and it takes too long and if you dont pay attention you will pour out too much which has happened to me several times already. I did not buy this full price as it was on sale and I quite love almay. Their foundations are very nicely formulated. ( I also have slightly sensitive skin and this did not irritate .)

soft and natural

This foundation wears beautifully on the skin. It makes the skin look flawless, yet has a very natural, matte finish. This doesn't break me out, and lasts well during the day. It is easy to apply, and feels soft and smooth on the skin. Highly recommend!

Good for clearing blemishes

This is a good foundation for clearing blemishes and it looks natural. Medium coverage. Unfortunately will not be repurchasing as Almay is now on PETAs testing on animals list.

Really love this

My skin tone is closest to NC30, and Sand fits it very well! The coverage is light to medium and the product itself is very buildable without looking cakey. You also don't need a lot to cover a lot so it's great in terms of efficiency and being worth the cost. It's pretty good at covering dark spots, redness and blemishes without an extra concealer too. The consistency is also good to work with - not too liquidy but quite fluid in application.

I have worked with this foundation through fingers, wet sponge and brush. All methods can turn out really well if done right! The finish of this foundation is matte but not to the point where it looks very obvious. I've actually received compliments on how my foundation has apparently been done very nicely, so I guess that just goes to show how easy to work with it is. :)

Finally, it contains 0.6% salicylic acid, which could be great for oilier skin, however I'm not actually sure if it has had any effect on my oilier T-zone. I reckon this part would vary from person to person.

One word. AMAZING

I love this foundation. It gives a matte finish and is medium to full coverage but it feels so light on my skin. I have oily skin and it lasts for six or more hours. Best of all it has not only not broken me out it ans completely gotten rid of all my acne in two weeks

Kick ass foundation

This foundation is just great for those with acne prone skin
matte finish

holds up well throughout the day and doesn't slide all over my face especially in the t-zones

medium coverage that looks natural after application

contains 0.6% salicylic acid which I'm not sure if it actually does anything for spots but it makes me feel better knowing that it's in there

a tad pricey for a pharmacy/drugstore grade foundation
