Neutrogena SkinClearing Mineral Powder

DON'T FORGET TO VOTE FOR ME EVERYDAY IN THE RIMMEL 10 CHALLENGE!!! 

Neutrogena SkinClearing Mineral Powder is a great idea. Too bad that it doesn't really work. I bought this a couple months ago, and forgot to do a review about it. So here it is now.

What it promises: 2 ways in 1 to cover, treat and help prevent breakouts!
  • Blemish treatment with salicylic acid - .5% salicylic Acid.
  • Formula with MicroClear technology treats and helps prevent breakouts
  • Mineral formula is gentle on skin
*found on the bottom of container*
The package is in a circular white container. It comes with it's own mirror and a two sided sponge to give you different coverage. The orange side of the sponge is for sheer coverage and the white side is for fuller coverage.

I found that all the sponge did was absorb the product, it didn't transfer any of the product to my skin. I threw it out shortly after I discovered that. I then began to apply it with my face brush, I didn't notice any change in the appearance of my makeup. So instead of putting this over my foundation I one day tried this on my face without foundation. I received no coverage. There was no difference in the look of my skin. It didn't cover any of my acne.


So I didn't want to give up hope so quickly for about a month and a half I used it to set my face makeup. I was using this in combination of the Neutrogena SkinClearing Foundation. I did not see a difference when using both products in the state of my acne. It didn't make it better but it also didn't make it worse.

Verdict: This item can be found from anywhere from $7 to 9. I find that this product is a waste, it did not help change the appearance of my acne nor did a good job of covering it up. I would not recommend this to anyone. Skip this one.
