new foundatino for sensitive,combination/oily , and acne prone skin

[ Edited ]

I currently use Bobbi Brown Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15 in Beige 3. This product has been discontinued, and it's replacement is way too thick for me.

 

What foundation recommendations do you have for someone with the following conditions:

* sensitive

* combination-oil

* acne prone skin

 

I would like something oil free

 

and what shade should I buy if I normally use bobbi brown's beige 3?

 

(p.s. I tried to edit the title to spell foundation correctly, but it wouldn't let me :smileywink:

@marionberry- The Smashbox foundation in 2.1 would be your match. Also I noticed Bobbi Brown has a skin foundation also in Beige 3. It would be the exact same color you were wearing but I think the coverage might be lighter in that paticular one. Hope this helps!

Hi marrionberry,

 

Clinique is a fantastic brand for those with delicate skin. I would recommend trying their Acne Solutions foundation in Fresh Vanilla. It treats existing breakouts and prevents new ones from occurring. This foundation is an ideal pick for oily skin types. Unfortunately this formula does not have sunscreen in it, so be sure to pair this with a moisturizer that has SPF.

I used this two years ago, not sure if they changed the formula but it made my non-sensitive skin dry out and flake, and when I called them (Clinique) and asked if that is normal and for advice they quoted "it's gentle enough for everyday use" which totally didn't answer my question.  Just some experience from me.

Was it the long wear Even Finish Foundation or the Natural Finish long lasting foundation? If it was the natural finish long lasting foundation, Smashbox's Stuido Skin 15 hr foundation would be a really good replacement. It's hard to tell the shade because they don't have the Bobbi Brown shades up any longer. What color complexion do you have?
