Can you recommend a good foundation that is non-comedogenic?

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
Bath & Body Works Cream to Powder Foundation
Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Foundation
Body & Soul Powder Foundation
English Ideas Perfect Powder
L’Oreal Colour Endure Light Stay-On Makeup Oil Free
Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation

For Dry Skin
Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick
Estee Lauder Impeccable

For All Skin Types
Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals loose mineral makeup
La Bella Donna loose mineral makeup
Maybelline True Illusion Oil-Free Foundation
Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid foundation
Profaces Liquid to Powder Makeup
Youngblood loose mineral makeup
Vincent Longo Water Canvas

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.
