Does Lakme Absolute Mattreal Mousse Foundation cause breakouts?


Does Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation SPF 8 cause pimples? Is Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation good for oily / combination / acne prone skin? 

1 Answer


Unfortunately, there is no ingredient list with the product, so it is hard to tell whether it might be comedogenic. Its slippery feel and easy spreadability would indicate generous presence of silicones (or similar) that can cause problems for acne prone skin.

Overall, Lakme Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation hasn’t been reported to cause acne, but there are other factors that make it an unsuitable choice for oily / combination / acne prone skin:

– low coverage, more like a tinted moisturizer
– slips off of oily skin, not long lasting
– limited, weird shades so hard to find a good match

If you can find a match, however, and only need light coverage, Lakme Absolute Mattreal could work for you for daily use. As always, patch test.

Among other mousse consistency foundations in India, there are L’Oreal Matte Morphose and Revlon Whipped Creme Makeup, but both have been reported to cause breakouts.

 Perhaps look into some non-comedogenic liquid foundation formulas.
