Q: Can you recommend a good foundation that is non-comedogenic?
A: I am so glad you asked! One of my pet projects lately has been researching foundations for some truly non-comedogenic (meaning won't cause acne or clogged pores) options for all of us who are acne prone, with either oily or dry skin.
One word of warning: In my experience, just because a product label states "non-comedogenic" does not mean it really is. Just like "sensitive skin" means different things to different people, the ingredients that the cosmetic companies may consider non-comedogenic may actually cause acne. I check all my products against a list of comedogenic ingredients and it has made a world of difference for me. You can find the list I use at http://www.zerozits.com/article6.shtml#inglist
For Oily Skin
For Dry Skin
For All Skin Types
Good luck! I know how frustrating it is to try brand after brand only to get new pimples from each one, so try the ones on this list and see what works for you.
