Top 10 Non Comedogenic Makeup Products (Don’t Clog Up Your Pores)

Top 10 Non Comedogenic Makeup Products

Despite all of the wonderful advertisements and promises by cosmetic companies, every woman must be careful when choosing the best makeup to use for her particular skin type.

The safest and also probably the best choice is to use non comedogenic makeup because it’s more skin-friendly than any other type of makeup available on the market.

Non comedogenic makeup is formulated so that it does not clog the pores.

It is also made up of ingredients that do not cause skin irritation and breakouts.

To help you choose what makeup to use, here is our selection of the Top 10 Non Comedogenic makeup products and cosmetics.

Best Non Comedogenic Makeup

1. Best Moisturizer: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is not your standard moisturizer. It’s unique formulation blends skincare and makeup. It’s known for creating a natural healthy glow to the face and a “no makeup look” and has even been named the “Best Tinted Moisturizer” by InStyle Magazine. 

It also has SPF 20 UVB/UVA sunscreen and is made up of a sheer and lightweight formula.  Since it’s a non comedogenic makeup, it’s for all skin types, so even those with sensitive skin can use it with no problems at all.

2. Best Skin Cleanser: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

I personally use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. True to its name, it’s a cleanser that is gentle to the skin since it is dermatologically tested, non comedogenic, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic.

It can even be used for babies because it’s really very gentle to the skin. It is also sensitive to the skin’s needs and a great makeup remover that will neither strip the skin of its natural oils nor disturb its PH balance.

3. Best Moisturizing Cream for Dry Skin: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for Dry Skin

When it comes to non comedogenic makeup, cosmetics, and skin care, Cetaphil is one of the trusted leading brands. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is formulated to give intense moisture for chronic dry and sensitive skin. It’s a cream that can be used not just on the face but also on your hands and other parts of your body.  It’s clinically proven to provide the skin with the right amount of hydration to prevent it from being dry and flaky. It is free from parabens, lanolins, synthetic fragrances, and other comedogenic substances that can surely cause skin irritation.

4. Best Foundation: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup is dermatologically formulated not just as a non comedogenic makeup but also as an oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic makeup. It also has SPF 20 so you get the right amount of sun protection from using it. 

This liquid makeup will give you a perfectly natural look because of its silky-light coverage while at the same time improving your skin’s texture and luminosity for that healthy and younger look. Its lightweight and silky formula will also give your face a flawless look. Aside from the True Beige shade, it’s also available in eleven other different shades.

5. Best Foundation Primer: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

Laura Mercier’s Foundation Primer gives the skin a universal pearl tint and serves as a barrier on the skin from outside elements while enabling the makeup to stay fresh, color-true, and long-lasting. It has a lightweight and creamy gel texture. It gives the skin a radiant and luminous finish while reducing the skin’s imperfections.

6. Best Foundation Powder: Laura Mercier Foundation Powder

Another product from Laura Mercier that is also a non comedogenic makeup is the Laura Mercier Foundation Powder.

This powder is definitely a go-to-product. It is a very convenient wet or dry compact powder formulated for giving the skin a flawless look while at the same time controlling oil and grease on the face. You can either use it for sheer (dry), medium coverage (dry), or full coverage (wet). The foundation powder comes with a puff and sponge that you can use to reduce shine or as a touch-up over a tinted moisturizer or a liquid foundation.

7. Best Corrective Foundation: Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation

Another non comedogenic makeup is Vichy Dermablend. This foundation is a fluid corrective one that is best for minor to moderate skin imperfections like acne scars and redness. Although it has a high coverage and a matte finish, it still feels very light on the skin. 

It is laden with the soothing properties of Vichy Thermal Water and is also good for moisturizing the skin. However, some Vichy Dermablend fans are a bit disappointed with it because it’s only available in four different shades.

8. Best Skin Enhancer: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

The Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer is a non comedogenic makeup that is available in six sheer and skin-enhancing tints. It’s three daily essentials rolled into one: Retinol Treatment, SPF 20 moisturizer, and sheer tint.  As a skin-enhancer, it’s a good alternative to foundation but with more benefits as it helps to visibly smooth fine lines and reduce the signs of ageing to give you the softer, healthier, and younger-looking skin that you’re dreaming of.

9. Best Tinted Moisturizer: NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

This non comedogenic makeup from NARS is also oil-free, synthetic fragrance-free, and dermatologically formulated for sensitive skin. This makeup helps hydrate the skin and reduce dark spots on the face. 

It also has SPF 30/PA+++, and as a moisturizer, it keeps the skin hydrated. Some of its ingredients include naturally derived botanicals and Kopara from French Polynesia, which helps revive the skin to give it a softer, smoother, and natural glow.

10. Top Powder Foundation: Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation

Mary Kay is also one of the leading names when it comes to makeup and cosmetics. Like its other makeup, Mary Kay Mineral Powder Foundation is dermatologically tested as suitable for highly sensitive skin. 

This makeup is an oil-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic powder that gives the coverage of foundation. This powder is also skin-correcting, which minimizes lines and makes other imperfections disappear. You’ll get a flawless look and beautiful skin but still with a weightless feel.  It’s a powder, foundation, and skin corrector all rolled into one.
