Whether you’re young or old, skincare remains the top priority for most. Many celebrities tout the importance of skincare at a young age. Incorporating products which fit your skin is the first step to ensuring you maintain the condition of your skin.

If you have oily and acne-prone skin, one of the essential steps to maintaining it is using an excellent oil-free foundation. If you’re acne-prone, you most likely want to cover up imperfections, but using the wrong product can prolong your breakouts.

As someone who suffers from acne and oily skin, I tested out several popular foundations to see which are the winners.

Maybelline FitMe Matte+ Poreless

At first, I was a little hesitant about this product because I heard mixed reviews about it. It turned out to be surprisingly good to my skin! It’s very lightweight and absorbs naturally produced oils during the day, making you look matte and poreless. The best thing about it is the noncomedogenic effect which means it won’t clog your pores.

L.A. Girl Pro Coverage Liquid Foundation

This paraben-free and oil-free formula provides long-lasting coverage for oily skin. It’s comfortable to wear and breathable with added anti-oxidants that hydrates and repairs your skin.

Revlon – Color Stay Liquid Foundation

This foundation is a favorite of anyone with combo/ oily skin thanks to its broad coverage and matte finish. But the best thing about this product is that not only is it oil-free but it also contains hyaluronic acid that hydrates your skin.

Neutrogena Skin Clearing Foundation

The breathable formula controls shine and unclogs pores with salicylic acid. It’s lightweight with medium coverage.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

With its recently expanded range of shades, the stay matte mousse foundation is the densest formula in this category. But that means you only need a small amount of product to cover your face. It’s an oil-control formula, giving oily skin a break from shine.

Nyx Stay Matte but Not Flat

This product gives you full coverage with a matte finish. The foundation is oil-free and water-based, which is perfect for oily skin.

L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte

I’m sure you have seen many beauty bloggers use this foundation. Though they have a narrow range of shades, and you sometimes have to mix two shades, it gives a matte finish that doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Plus it’s very long-lasting and creamy.

Milani Conceal+ Perfect 2-in1 Foundation and Concealer

This foundation gives you full coverage and dewy look. You can even skip concealer! If you’re going for a more matte look, you can always finish up with some powder. But if you’re going for a glowy natural finish, this is the foundation for you. The formula is long-lasting, reliably providing coverage up to eight hours!
