  • well, definitely avoid any that have mineral oil or petroleum products. something i recommend for younger (as in teen to young 20's) clients who are struggling acne, is arbone's FYI tinted moisturizer, it helps to balance out the skin's ph but gives you coverage and spf of 15 all at once. it's $18.00

  • i just started using bare minerals. it covers so well, and its not oily at all, its a loose powder and it makes your skin look flawless. i love it.

  • IMO you get what you pay for with makeup. You might want to work on treating the problem instead of covering it up, which can irritate the skin even more.
