Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Powder Review

by Sarah
(Michigan)

I picked up a Neutrogena Mineral Sheers powder at the drugstore on a whim. I had heard good things about mineral makeup and this product was really reasonably priced. Also, I could buy just one mineral product by itself, not as part of a set. For the most part, I do like it. It evens out my skin tone, which tends to be ruddy. It doesn't have a heavy feel. I often forget I am wearing it at all.

I also have somewhat sensitive skin and this product does not aggravate my skin. But it does not cover as well as other powder foundations I have used. If I have pimples, this powder is not enough to cover them; I have to use concealer or other foundation as well. It also doesn't last as long as other powders. I use this as an everyday coverup but I wouldn't use it for special occasions or if I'm having a breakout.

The container itself is poorly designed. The cap that goes over the brush is small, so I have to scrunch the bristles together to put it on. This ends up with some of the bristles bending or breaking. Also, you have to shake the container to get powder onto the brush, and sometimes it takes a lot of shaking.

Thanks Sarah,

I checked with the Skin Deep Database about this product. Neutrogena is not a signer of the Compact For Safe Cosmetics and they do do animal testing. This product was given a rating of 3 for moderate safety. Products with a 1 and 2 rating being safer.

Below are the ingredients from Neutrogena Mineral Sheers.

Ingredients from packaging: Mica; Bismuth Oxychloride; Iron Oxides; Titanium Dioxide; Polymethyl Methacrylate; Retinyl Palmitate; Tocopheryl Acetate; Ascorbic Acid; Pantothenic Acid; Soybean (Glycine Soja); Flour; Silk Powder; Zinc Stearate; Sodium Dehydroacetate; Methylparaben; Propylparaben; May Also Contain: Ultramarines; Carmine; Manganese Violet

The ingredients that cause this product to only receive a moderate rating are Tocopheryl Acetate, and the Parbans with a 4 rating for safety and Retinyl Palmitate with a 3 rating.

Bismuth Oxychloride while safe can cause problems for some women with sensitive skin.

quality makeup but not for asian skin
by: Texan

I have the typical light asian skin with yellow undertones (leaning more towards the mother-of-pearl shade, especially in the winter since I don't spend time outdoors as much when it's cold). I love Neutrogena mineral makeup since it's so sheer and light and really good for my sensitive skin. However, all of their light shades have pink undertones which makes my facial skin look unnatural when applied. I want to suggest they start adding shades that match light-skinned asian or hispanic women with yellow-toned skin like myself. Unfortunately Neutrogena's website does not seem to have a Comments section. Such a shame as they're losing out on a big market but this is typical of cosmetic companies. Most don't seem to make shades that do match women like me.

burns and itches

Tried it - made my face burn and itch within 10-15 minutes of application.

Thanks Sarah, do you have any info on a return address?

Sarah, I bought the same product because I enjoy some of the other Neutrogena products. But this "ineral sheers" product is as you said a poorly designed container and not very user friendly. The powder does not shake down easily and when it does, it gets all over. It does not cover well, but instead covers in a "blotchy" manner because of this applicator, and the brush INDEED is near impossible to return to its container with out bending all the bristles. If used often the brush would eventually be unable to be returned to the container.
IN YOUR RESEARCH DID YOU COME ACROSS AN ADDRESS FOR RETURNS ON THESE PRODUCTS? I THINK OUR COMMENTS SHOULD BE GOING TO THE PROPER PEOPLE INSTEAD OF US JUST COMPLAINING, SO THAT THE PRODUCT CAN BE IMPROVED. PLEASE ADVISE IF YOU HAVE ACQUIRED ANY OTHER INFORMATION.
THANKS FOR SHARING, BUT I READ TOO LATE :-)
