List of Silicone-Free Skin Care, Foundation, Bronzers!

So I've been silicone-free with respect to my skin care and face makeup (aside from blush and highlight because silicone doesn't affect my cheeks thankfully!) for a long time now. I've done so much research, scoured every website, and followed up on any link with the words "silicone free" in the description. I've also tried a ton of products that are silicone free. I know that I find posts like this extremely helpful but unfortunately, there are not many of them. I thought I would share with other gals like myself who have an aversion to silicone and are forced into a life of jealousy watching and reading about others who get to use anything on their face that they want to. Sadly, I will never know what life is like while using the Dior Airflash foundation or Guerlain Four Seasons bronzer. Did I even spell Guerlain right? I would look it up but this post isn't about Guerlain so who cares. 

Below are products I have tried and that I recommend, unless I've noted otherwise. I'm sure there are more but I can't remember everything! And of course there are more than I haven't tried. I will update this list whenever I try a new product! *please note if there is an asterix, I've named an entire product line. By the way, if a product line says they are 100% organic, that also means they don't use silicone. Many products say organic or natural but that doesn't mean 100% organic. And "natural" doesn't mean "organic".

Silcone-Free Foundation/Makeup/Primers:

*Mineral Foundations usually do not contain silicone unless they are pressed powder form but they sometimes contain silica which my skin hates as well. There are many loose minerals brands that you can find on the internet that are all vegan and organic. I've tried to concentrate on liquid products that are silicone-free because they are much harder to find!

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder (my skin loves this)
Laura Mercier Oil-Free Supreme Liquid Foundation (reformulated, not as good as old formula)
Bare Minerals Original Foundation (the loose, not pressed, the pressed contains silica)
Korres Mineral Powder
BellaPierre (pressed mineral powder, hard to find but very nice)
RCMA Foundation (cream foundation)
*RCMA product line is silicone-free
Juice Beauty Foundation (made me break out but for reasons other than silicone content)
Eminence Antioxidant Mineral Foundation
Eminence Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25
*Eminence Entire Product Line is Organic, no silicone! 
OCC Airbrush Makeup (can be used without the machine)
OCC Concealer
*OCC products are silicone-free
Dinair Airbrush Makeup
Luminess Airbrush Makeup
Omorovicza BB Cream (probably the only BB Cream on the planet with no silicone, but very $$$)
Omorovicza Complexion Enhancer SPF
DeVita BB Cream (more like a tinted moisturizer)
*DeVita Products are Silicone Free, they make foundations too! 
*Juice Beauty foundations/tinted moisturizers do not include silicone
Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals Foundation (their pressed minerals are not silicone-free) 
Korres Silicone-Free Vitamin E Face Primer
Korres Quercetin & Oak Anti-Aging Face Primer 

Silicone-Free Moisturizers/Serums:

Korres 24 Hour Moisturizing Cream (highly recommended for normal/dry skin)
Korres Greek Yogurt Moisturizer
Korres Sleeping Facials (overnight facials, heard these are awesome!)
Eminence Acai Firm Moisturizer (just starting using this, it's LOVE!)
*All Eminence Skin Care is Organic, no silicone! Mentioned by Madonna, Jessica Beil, other celebs
Michael Todd Hydrating Serum
*Michael Todd skincare is 70-100% organic, no silicone! 
Kate Somerville Oil-Free Quench hydrating serum (make sure it says oil-free, they also make a non oil-free that includes silicone)
*DeVita Organic Skin Care Line/Makeup is Silicone-Free 
Devita SPF 30 Moisturizer/Sunscreen
Kate Somerville RetAsphere 2-in-1 Retinol (excellent product for nightime use!)
*Juice Beauty Skin Care is organic, no silicone!
Omorovicza Balancing Moisturizer 
Omorovicza Rose Lifting Serum 
*I am almost positive that Omorovicza product line is all silicone-free

  3. Does anybody know the best organic full coverage liquid foundations? Also very moisturizing serums and night creams. 61 years old and going vegan! LOL!

  4. Hi!! Thank you for this ! Im from france im desperatly looking for a good silicon free oil free moisturizer. I was fine with Avene until last week when I noticed little white bumps on my chin my dermatologist said it was probably caused by the daily use of dimethicone based products. It will take several weeks before theses will detach from the skin and fade away hopefully..if not i have to see a plastic surgeon to remove some of them as it can cause permanent asphyxiation of some pores..omg She advised me to change completly my skincare routine. I've started to do some research to target some shops in paris im planning to go to try some of their products. Korres in paris is one them. Thank you;) Coline ,a french blogger ( mentioned on youtube Aesop, Etat pur, Ren and Jonzac. Why did you mention only the antiaging product from Ren line in your list? Is it because its the only silicone free product of their line? What do you think of these brands i mentioned? A lot of people think Avene is a thermal water natural brand.. its not at all. thank you for your help

  5. THANK YOU!!! I can totally relate ... after years of erroneously thinking i had "acne" + lots of time (and money:( trying tons of mid to hi-end products, I too learned that I will never be the "i can use anything & look great" kinda girl... it was tedious, expensive & a bit frustrating, but I finally zero'd in on Dimethicone & Silica as the culprits of my pimples & congested pores. I've just started using the Omorovicza line (Intro Kit is awesome!) and it's a game-changer for me: my face is healthy, hydrated, radiant, even in tone, and blemish free, i can't get over it really. With such great "Silicone Free' results, I started my search for similar Foundation & Blush & Bronzer (I'm not as lucky as you, my cheeks hate Dimethicone & Silica too) and came across your very helpful blog ... so i end, same as i began, by saying THANK YOU! PS. Glamglow White Treatment mask was an effective detox which i coincidentally tried just before discovering Omorovicza (I wd have stuck w/the Glamglow except I like the synergy of the Omorovicza mask with their cleansers & creams.)

    1. Thank you so much for your reply. Us silicone free girls have to stick together!! I need to update this post because I have more products to add! You know what pisses me off is when I read articles by supposed skin experts say that silicone can't clog pores because it's too big to fit in a pore. Hello silicone is impermeable to water so it creates a barrier over your skin and isn't easily broken down with cleanser. Kind of like pouring water on wax, the wax is not going to dissolve. Silica is bad news for me too. I find that if there is silica and no silicone, i will get bumps but not anything crazy but the combination of the two will give me cystic acne especially on my chin. Thanks for your recommendations! Let's chat more!

    2. I Agreed that we all have different type of skin and all moisturizer can not suits our skin and using moisturizer in above step is very useful.

  6. It is the best natural treatments for home remedies anti aging skin care its give you a fresher face.

  7. This is great, having spent $100s on foundations from Armani to La Mer, I am loving this list!

  8. Which foundation was your favorite?

  9. I found Joyal Beauty organic face serums are all silicone-free:

  10. Thank you so much for posting this! I thought I was alone out there. I first found out about my silicone allergy when my eyes were constantly bright red because my contacts contained silicone. It took multiple trips to the eye doctor for him to finally figure out the cause. Since then, I have realized that almost everything has silicone in it! Even my daily vitamins. After replacing almost all of my skin care products and makeup, my face seems to be clearing up. I've been using rice powder for my foundation which I love, but I do miss having options, so thank you for this list!

  11. Thank you so much for sharing this. I strongly believe I am suffering from a silicon allergy to makeup, and I found it particularly difficult to find effective products. I look forward to trying some of these!

  12. L'oreal True match gentle mineral foundation is silica and gluten free. Love it! Very affordable also
