I wanted to find something that didn't have a SPF and easy to pick-up (DS). I used this when I was younger and had no issues with it. Now it just breaks me out, the ingredients aren't the best.

This review is for the new formulation of the Clean Sensitive foundation.
First of all, I don't know why there are so many reviews for this product saying that it is thick and hard to get out of the bottle. I did not have that experience. I had no problems whatsoever with the bottle or the formula. (I applied it with my fingers.)
I don't wear foundation on a daily basis, but I had a dressy occasion to go to one night and I wanted a foundation that would even out my skin tone, cover redness and small imperfections, while still feeling lightweight and looking fairly natural. This foundation fulfilled all of those requirements for me (I used a concealer for larger blemishes, but that is to be expected). I have extremely sensitive/combination skin and it wore well for the entire evening, without causing me to break out in the following days.
I have only worn it that one time so far, so I can't comment on how it would hold up to repeated uses, but I plan on keeping my bottle for those few occasions in the future when I will need it again. I also liked the matching pressed powder.

The new formulation is way too thick for the packaging. I have to hammer the bottle against my hand to get anything out at all. Terrible, terrible packaging. This formulation is in extreme need of packaging that includes a pump. Remember how the older formulation was so watery that it would just pour out too fast and you had to be more careful? Cover Girl has kind of swung in the opposite direction with this new formula. Now you can hardly get any out at all. The weird thing is, for as thick as it seems, it doesn't really cover a whole lot. It leaves a weird cast over the skin that isn't flattering. The reason I gave it a 3 is because I have to give them points for making the colors a little more true to their name. The older version of Ivory was horrendously dark for an ivory. The new formula of Ivory is very pale. I give mad props to that. It's hard for a super pale girl to find a drugstore ivory that isn't too dark, too pink, or too orange. I wish the formulation was a bit better because the paleness level is great. Luckily, I can salvage this purchase by using it as a color-corrector for other foundations since it is so light in tone.

Terrible! I got the the "sensitive version". I was looking for a cheap, basic light/medium coverage foundation for special occasions when I want to even out my skin tone. It was a decent color match and it didn't aggravate my skin, but it is just down right horrible. It covered nothing, and had a sheer yet noticeable, bumpy,unnatural texture.

Bought it blindly without doing research on it. Wish I could go back in time and leave it in the store.
So thick it won't come out of the bottle.
Bought the sensitive skin kind,.....when I took it off my skin was beet red!
Don't buy it.

I bought the new formula in the Oil Free version to try. I liked it better than the old formula - this version is thicker and they finally got rid of that heavy Noxema fragrance!! Unfortunately, I can no longer use it (after about 5 uses) cause it will not come out of the bottle!! It's crazy! What stupid packaging for a thicker foundation!! I don't recommend this foundation unless you know a good trick for getting it out!!

This is a terrible foundation. It has no SPF, has a overwhelming fragrance, has no pump applicator, and worst of all, makes skin look pastey. It's just terrible. You look like a middle school girl whose mom finally let her start using makeup. Just bad. AVOID!

For the NEW version of Clean, Oil Control (blue dot)
First, I wouldn't consider my skin oily - I'm actually quite flaky right now because of anti-acne medicine. However, I chose the oily skin version because for some reason the oily line has more yellow undertones than the Normal, and Sensitive does. When the 3 are compared to each other they CLEARLY are not kept in the same color family. Normal and Sensitive have pink undertones. I found that rather strange.
Anywho. I have been using the oily skin one (Buff Beige 525) for about 3 days now, and I honestly have no complaints. It does an awesome job at keeping the skin matte, and I have yet to see it "move" or crease anywhere on me. It doesn't oxidize on my face, and I must say I am blown away at how well the color match is with my skin (but again, the Sensitive or Normal would have been too pink).
When I apply this foundation I use the "stippling" technique, using a brush. So I'm not swiping it across my face or applying it with my fingers or a sponge. I think this really helps.
The obvious downside is that this comes in a bottle without a pump. It IS thick. Very thick. So, applying this on the go, or while in the car is not best option. I blot some out on a tray, and everything works out nicely. I would suggest giving this foundation a try, and to apply it using the same technique I do. (You can see how it's done by looking it up on Youtube). If you end up hating it, it's not much of a loss. I bought mine for $4.78
This stuff is HORRIBLE!!! I know I raved about it, but after about a month, it changed colors on me, turned my skin pink every time that I used it, and broke me out like non-other. It felt like roadkill on my face. And...the smell. If foundation can go bad this quickly, that is exactly what happened with me. I will not be buying this again.

This foundation is very hard to get out of the bottle, I would not buy this again. (bought this at Dollar General for $5.00).

I have this foundation for Sensitive Skin. It doesn't have much of a scent, and it gives me about medium coverage. I still need to add concealer if I have any spots, but I do with pretty much any foundation.
I like the coverage, I found my shade very easily, but I just cannot get the foundation to come out of the bottle! It's so thick I need to scoop it out with a q-tip. I hate that. I would buy this again if only it had a pump or you could squeeze it out or if it were just thin enough to pour.
So, the packaging sucks. What good is a product if you can't get to it?

If you have oily skin, or any kind of blemishes don't get this. made my skin look horrid! pastey, and oily!

I'm changing my entire review of this product. At first I thought it was good because I was switching around a lot of foundations and it got confusing. But after using this for awhile I realize it's very mediocre. The texture is very dry, thick, and hard to blend. It looks uneven after applied and feels quite stiff or filmy on my face compared to other foundations. I do believe this foundation applies better with a foundation brush or a sponge rather than fingertips. Overall, I felt this foundation was way too drying and matte (yet no oil control) on my normal-combo skin.
