    Not for me

    I bought this pressed powder after having a great experienced with Almay’s Clear Complexion foundation. I thought for sure it was a safe bet. I purchased the light-medium tone, since I have always found that that light to medium seems to be on the lighter side instead of the darker. This wasn’t the case for this though, it was much darker than expected. So in case you decide to purchase this ...read morekeep that in mind. What it claims to do: Almay’s Clear Complexion Pressed Powder is supposed to help clear your skin of acne and blemishes, plus, keep your skin clear with its active ingredient, salicylic acid. On top of this, it’s supposed to provide excellent coverage of the acne or blemish spots you already have. It also claims to help hide and control shine. This pressed powder is hypoallergenic like all Almay products and is also oil free. Makeup that is hypoallergenic is important to me because of my sensitive skin. I have been pleased with Almay before so didn’t really think twice about buying this. Unfortunately, the powder was only usable for a few days before it hardened up like a solid rock, with a dark thick layer over the top that you would have to scrape off before each application. I could have chosen to do this but instead, I just quit using it. While I was using it, I wasn’t impressed with the coverage and it did not go on smoothly like pressed powder should. It seemed to blotch up in spots like your cheeks and completely disappear on spots like chin, and forehead, about an hour after application it did this so badly that I would need to remove the makeup completely. Top it all off, it is rather expensive. I was highly disappointed in this product mostly because I usually love the quality of Almay cosmetics and am willing to pay the little extra for the drug store makeup. — 11 months, 3 weeks ago

    Not a Fan

    I agree with other reviewers- It's orange looking, and doesn't seem to be of good quality. It is supposed to be a powder that helps cover, while clearing your complexion, but it did neither for me. I didn't even use half of this before I got rid of it. I was hopeful for this product, but disappointed in the end. — 1 year, 1 month ago

    OK Coverage

    The coverage is OK although it isn't enough to use without concealer. It also doesn't last very long and needs to be reapplied midday- which I am too lazy to do. On the plus side, it doesn't make my acne any worse nor does it cake over my concealer. I will finish the compact I have but will then try something else. — 3 years ago

    Great Powder!

    I personally love this powder because I don't really look too much into heavy concealing, Light coverage is my style and this product does just that. The color blends well into my skin tone and it absorbs oil. It's a great buy and I love Almay products. Definitely a must buy unless you're looking for a lot of coverage. — 3 years, 10 months ago
