Product Review; "Neutrogena Healthy Skin Custom Glow Bronzer"
Best known for being "... a worldwide leader in premium, dermatologist-recommended skin, hair and cosmetic products..." Neutrogena creates color cosmetics that coincide with their overall reputation.
Made with a triple antioxidant complex, Healthy Skin Custom Glow Bronzer was designed to maintain skin's natural balance without detrimenting it's condition and appearance during wear and once product is removed. Not only is the formula lightweight in texture, but it has components that boast elements you'd expect to find in skincare. Ingredients like Cornstarch, Soybean Seed extract and Vitamin E create a formula that blends effortlessly and can even contribute to clearing up difficult complexions.
This may seem like a god-send, but let me clarify; it's not that the product will cure acne, per se. It's more the idea that it will do nothing to make your acne worse. This is the kind of property that would be considered "non-comedogenic", though, unlike most products, this one actually seems to do the job.
Though, it's not all rave reviews... unfortunately, I find the color choices to be a bit off if you are particularly pale. Skin tones in the very-fair to fair range with pink undertones may find this product a bit too ruddy on skin. The amount of Mica that creates the anticipated "glow" with bronzers is a gold-tone so it reflects beautifully off of yellow-toned complexions that are more medium to medium-deep in color. Everyone in the darker range will find it a great contour powder and even highlighter when in conjunction with other powder products like foundation.
Of course, you can always use more of a light-hand if you're particularly light-skinned. With the blend of beneficial ingredients, at least you know your skin will look great even after taking your makeup off.
