I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. I have been looking forever for a foundation that does not make me look greasy as I have oily skin. This foundation blends well, is light offers light to medium coverage and leaves my skin looking naturally matt - not the super cakey foundation type of matt. The packaging is pretty but I would really prefer a pump to control the amount of product I dispense. I use this foundation with a sponge and it works great; there's no streaking. I have also found it to be long wearing and transfer resistant. My acne prone skin did not break out from it but I do not think it does much to clear my skin. I mean in general products that claim to heal and conceal have less than 1percent of acne fighting ingredients so they really don't do much. Since the coverage is light to medium I highly recommend using the light blue capped undereye concealer from Almay on acne spots and other blemishes on your face instead of using Almays clear complexion concealer. The undereye one offers just as much coverage but blends much more easily and does not feel cakey like the clear complexion concealer. It works beautifully injunction with the foundation. I will definitely be repurchasing this product as it is the best foundation I have used so far.

Lovely light coverage and it really does heal blemishes! I usually stay away from liquid foundations as they generally make my face greasy and break me out. This is definitely my HG for when I have the odd blemishes. I use a stippling brush and stipple it onto my skin and it gives me an airbrush finish. I also set it with translucent powder to prolong the staying power. It provides a light coverage but is definitely buildable and I don't even need to apply concealer when I use this!

I like this foundation for the idea that it contains salicylic acid in it, and the other ingredients don't clog my pores. The coverage is about medium, and it blends well. The finish is more of a matte finish which is great for my oily skin. My 2 gripes about this foundation are1. it doesn't have a pump and 2. the color choice is limited. It seems like the colors are kind of ashy...perfect for anyone with really light skin. I have a little bit of a fake tan going on right now, and sand seems a tad too light. I might buy the next darkest shade up and try mixing the two.

So as far as I can tell with the reviews on this foundation, it seems that many people like it. I'm going to have to completely disagree with the good reviews because I HATED this foundation. The first thing I don't like about it is the price. I live in Canada so this product retails at about $15.99 which is pretty expensive for a drugstore foundation. Also the colour was waaay off. I bought the lightest one and it turned my skin orange like it was ridiculous and the coverage was awful. So i'm going to have to say that I will never buy this product again

Let me start by saying I've experimented with many, and I mean MANY brands of liquid foundation in hopes of receiving a flawless, non-cakey, or oily finish and this is probably the best product yet. I got the shade Neutral 220 & I have never found a shade so close to my skin color(: and let me mention that for my acne-prone and combination skin it has not broken me out one bit. One thing I do dislike about this product is the packaging, I would definitely prefer a pump. But in the end I officially left my Natural FX foundation for Almay's CCM and I am paying less than half the price for it. :)<3

I'm not sure about this product...I've been looking for my HG foundation, but I'm pretty sure that I've broken out from this. I had acne prone skin during my teenage years, but now that I'm a little older it takes a lot for me to break out and for whatever reason my skin went crazy a week after using this consistently. Therefore, I have stopped using this and have fallen back on Neutragena skin clearing makeup, although I'm still looking for my HG I'm pretty sure this is not it. As others have stated, the opening is very large so a lot comes out at once. A bit pricey for a drug store foundation, especially one I probably won't be using again.

My HG foundation for years! Makes my skin look better after I wear it! Feels great on my face! Never breaks me out! Also does not dry my dry spots on my skin out! Great price at the drugstore! I find it at Walgreens, Walmart, or Target.

Pretty ho-hum. Nothing fantastic here. Didn't help my blemishes at all, didn't make them worse though, which is good. I know my skin hates salicyclic acid, so I only used this a few times... This has hardly any coverage, which is weird because if you're using it to heal acne, you usually want it to hide what you do have in the process... It wasn't buildable either... It looked the same no matter how much you put on, which I guess is kind of good... It didn't look cakey, lol. If you're looking for coverage, look elsewhere.

I use Almay foundation on daily basis, but after I use up all my Almay foundation I wont be repurchasing, especially this one. I purchased this in the shade Naked (I'm an NC30 in MAC).Overall the colour selection is quiet poor. It is a light coverage, and I dont believe this foundation is buildable, it will look cakey if you do build it up. It was not very durable, so after about 3 hours it will start to fade. However I will say that after you applied it on, it will give just a nice light, natural and even finish, even the though the shade it slightly off. I hate the packaging, just a plain bottle with no pump.

HG! HG! HG!....My little children, I swear I will NEVER love another liquid foundation as I have this one.After experimenting around with several different brands, even Revlon's infamous "ColorStay", I totally lost all hope within the realms of the cosmetic industry. I was on the look out for a cheap, heavy coverage yet oil free foundation, especially one that's company didn't test on animals.Almay's Clear Complexion did all of the above and *MORE*. Since I've been using this, alongside Milk of Magnesia as a primer, I haven't had acne in a long time. While the decrease of pimples may be in result of my Milk of Magnesia primer, I know that Almay guarantees for this to cut down acne as well....so maybe the two combined is why my friends are so envious. ;)Other than reducing my acne, some of my old acne scars have even faded. It's not a dramatic change, but I notice a slight difference. My blemishes don't look as blotchy as they did before either.Plus the lasting power is amazing. Even without a real primer or my Milk of Magnesia, my face still looks flawless for 7+ hours after I slather some of this across my skin.The only two cons I can think of for this foundation is that they don't create a lot of darker shades. It seems like Almay's whole beauty line is intended for pale looking Caucasian women like myself. Such a shame.The other con is the price. Though I prefer the use of heavy coverage foundations, personally for me, I don't need very much coverage. All I need to do is hide my rosy tinted cheeks and my already-mentioned scarring. I blend into my hairline as well, though really it isn't required. Not to mention I don't wear foundation every day. So even though I bought my Almay bottle two months ago, I still have a ton left. For people who use more than I do, this 1 ounce bottle could be a problem. Especially for something so measly to weigh in at $11.99. The point I'm trying to make here is that 1 ounce probably won't be enough for most people. Especially if you need to use foundation for a heavy coverage on a daily basis.But with that aside, thanks to PETA.org and Google, I FINALLY FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION.
