Our Top 5 Foundations For Breakout-Prone Skin

Here our experts share their favourite non-comedogenic foundation formulas

Here at Renude, we’re pretty good at building the perfect skincare routine for your needs. But if you’re not using the right make-up products on top, you may not get the results you’re after. 


If you’re breakout or congestion-prone, we would recommend using a non-comedogenic formula for your foundation (if you choose to wear it).

Non-comedogenic means that the product has been tested and proven to not cause comedones. Comedones is the medical term for blocked pores, which is the starting point for any type of breakout.


So which are the best non-comedogenic foundations on the market?

Here are the top 5, according to our experts.
