      The color actually closely matches my skin tone, which is a plus. They jury is still out about whether or not it actually will help acne. If you have sensitive, combo skin you may notice your skin looks dry with it. I just a moisturizer underneath and that helps.

        Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Makeup, Ivory, 1 fl oz:

        I got this based on a review by someone with oily skin (she raved about this). I have oily skin that makeup seems to "melt" off a few hours after application. I have found that I have to use an oil control facial cleanser followed by homemade "astringent" made of apple cider vingear and water. Only if I apply both before foundation will this foundation not melt off my face. I tried this foundation without the first two steps and my face was oily within a few hours. I do like that the ivory shade actually matches my pale skin and doesn't look orange tinted in sunlight. Also, the coverage is between light and medium, which is perfect. I'm sticking with this since I got a deal on buying two and since I cannot find a foundation for oily skin that works on mine.

          Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Makeup, Ivory, 1 fl oz:

          I have extremely oily skin and have tried numerous brands and nothing controls the oil like this one. I don't know how much if at all it helps with acne, but it's the only one that can handle the oil. It's full-coverage and my rather blotchy skin looks flawless with it. It dries a little fast so not the easiest to put on. The pump is an improvement. Also, I need the lightest shade and the last bottle I got was a little dark, it is labeled the same as always. The matching powder has always been too dark for me so I use Maybelline Shine Free, they work great together.

            Comments about Almay Clear Complexion Makeup, Ivory, 1 fl oz:

            I don't know if it prevents breakouts, but it certainly doesn't seem to contribute to them. It doesn't dry out my skin and has good coverage. It is a bit difficult to blend, so I put primer on my cheeks and other areas where I don't need such heavy coverage. For me it lasts most of the day without settling into creases. By the afternoon my nose and forehead do start to get a bit shiny, but some oil absorbing sheets takes care of that.

            One downside is that irritates my eyes, so I have to use a different concealor for my dark circles.
