which would you say is best to wear on combo, acne-prone skin during the summer (with no AC and about 90 degrees) and why?

i think tinted moisturizer because foundation will melt right off. i'm not sure, though.

what do you think?

hmmm..i would be more careful with tinted moisturizer..alota them make me break out since most tinted moisturizer are made for dry/normal skin.

what i usually do (i know where u are coming from, i am from L.A., super hot!!) is put concealer on the paces i really need it. dust loose powder, and blot periodically with clean and clear oil blotting papers

definitely go for tinted moisturizer if you can pull it off. I wished I could as hardly any places in Austria have air condition, but I just have too many flaws to cover and a TM wouldn´t do the job.

I agree, most tinted moisturizers are not formulated for oily skin. They also will not provide much coverage at all, just a little bit of evening out the skin tone.

I'd go for TM. though I just usually mix my foundation with moisturizer to make it sheerer.

I love tinted moisturizer! Like Trisha said, it's not going to give you a lot of coverage, but it will lightly even out your skin tone.

thanks for the replies!

this is actually one of those situations where you can't use oil-blotting sheets. my cousin is getting married next month overseas in a restaurant with 300+ people, no AC, at least 90 degrees, and she can't do anything but stand there. there's no going to take a break, blotting, reapplying makeup, bathroom, etc. i told her tinted moisturizer would be a better choice since it'll be so hot, with powder over it, but she had no idea, so we were both stuck and couldn't figure it out.

thanks!

I heard Neutrogena clear tint is very light and covers small flaws, I personally didn't use it yet though.

I'll have to agree with that.......I've never seen you have a bad face day.

hi I'm new and this is my first day, I have been battling acne forever and I have recently become an accutane survivor which is a harsh drug to get rid of acne. I really have not had the best luck with tinted moisturizers and I don't think they cover up really well, I have really bad scars and I need a good medium coverage for my face. If you want a really nice sheer coverage, I would suggest tinted moisturizer, but if your like me and need to hide major flaws than I would suggest a foundation. I really love love love neutrogena skin clearing foundation and I have found it is the only thing that my skin really loves! I wear it in the summer and the winter and have had no problems!!
