This has been the only liquid foundation that does not break out my skin. However after a couple of hours, my face does tend to get very oily. And although the packaging makes it look like there is not much product, it lasts for a pretty long time.
I paid $45 dollars for this foundation, it's got great coverage and 2% SA. HOWEVER, it's expensive and broke me out very often, which was quite a contradiction considering its supposed to help heal your acne. AND, it was thick, the bottle was a weird plastic. It also ran out very quickly, because gosh knows if you tried to get it onto your makeup sponge, it'll just create a waterfall of makeup! It was a total waste!
While the coverage, 2% SA, non-drying foundation is a bonus, everything else about it sucked and I was really disappointed.
This did not work for me, I broke out more - just about the worse I've ever been. I don't know if I have menopause acne or just not responding well to the Clinique foundations. I really wanted this one to work. I liked the color match, coverage was med, but could have been a bit better, went on smooth but it tended to make my skin flake & look a little dry but still felt ok. Helped a bit with oil control but the break outs was getting worse every time I wore it.
History - I was using Clinique's redness solutions make-up since last November but now that it is May & in the 90's here in Fl it is just not working out, Too oily & making me break out a bit, hence my thought - hey I should try the acne one - bad plan - bam twice as bad! I also tried Almay’s Clear Complexion - same issue more break outs.
I have just tried a base of Avon's MagiX Cashmere Liquid Foundation (dryer powdery) in Med Beige and Neutrogena Acne Clearing foundation in a (lighter Beige color) over - so far my skin has been a lot better. Almay’s colors were better for me - less pink. I had to get a bit darker color in Neutrogena for the right tone. The light-med colors run a bit pink for me.
I have been using MagiX Cashmere & Neutrogena Acne clearing foundation for a few days now and so far its been ok. I still have an acne issue going on but way less now.
You know how you have that one item in your make-up box that you absolutely adore? Well, this product is mine. :)
It was $24.50...which would typically break a law in my handbook of finances..but it's great. It is wonderful in that it gives a dewy look, but not to the point of turning your face into a bucket of oil. I don't really think it 'rids' acne, but it certainly doesn't start it. I've slept with this foundation many times, and my skin is fine :)
The available shades for this foundation is absolutely horrible. Since I am asian, I have fairly yellow tones. They only have shades available in the pink, orange and dark range. However it didn't irritate my skin, it didn't cause any acne, it actually helped! Although I looked like a ghost when I put it on, the next day my pores got smaller and some of my acne scars faded a little. I had to return mine but if they had better selection in shades I would definitely repurchase!
I use this in Fresh Neutral in the winter mostly. I haven't noticed it having any effect on my acne (which is fairly minimal) but it has a pretty good coverage and only starts getting cakey at the very end of the day for me. I've never had fantastic luck with liquid foundations, so that this covers well without giving me a mask and doesn't break me out horribly is enough that I like the product. I'm not sure the "Acne Solutions" part is worth it, though, and I might switch to a better matching color. This one is a little pinky for me.
I have to say this is quite a foundation....I was waiting for a month to write a review and now its lile over a month, maybe 2 months since I have been using this foundation. I dnt think this foundation helps heal acne, but is a great foundation to prevent it. This does not have a good sttaying power however. After 4 hours it kind of make my face look muddy..my face is super oily..with acne. This does a good job covering my acne scars/ marks. Yet it doesn cover completely. I would def buy aggain... It feels light. Oh forgot to mention @ first it made my skin near my lip a lil dry even tho I have greasy skin... But now I got no problems
I'm sorry I have to write an edit review. Now since it is summer in california. While putting this on OMG my face looks muddy/cakey or a melting cake icing on my face...I know it is best just to wear tinted moisturizer for hot days but I need that coverage. So I try to use this product as concealer with loose powder. Yet its better than my normal wear I still look a lil muddy. This is only a great product for winter I assume. What a bummer. But I will still def buy it again the fact that it doesn't cause any break outs.
I have oily, acne-prone skin so I snatched this up right away because I thought it would be perfect for my skin but I ended up hating it. It went on smoothly but within an hour or two it had melted off for the most part and left my face looking blotchy with patchy foundation all over it. it did not last long and did not help with my acne at all. I would not repurchase this product.
This was the first foundation I ever purchased because up until then I simply couldn't wear liquid foundation due to my acne-prone skin. Initially, I was a bit wary of the name-- I don't like to purchase acne curing products because they tend to break me out even more but I gave this a go. Overall I really do like this product a lot. The salycilic acid didn't irritate my skin and I didn't break out with it. That being said, I don't think it made my skin better, yet it didn't make it worse by any means.
Coverage is "buildable", which on my skin I found to be about medium. It didn't cover up ALL of my acne scarring but it did a fairly decent job. It left a nice glow to my skin but I did have to touch up with powder every so often (But heck, what foundation doesn't require that?)
The only issue I had with this foundation is the color match. The two colors I have (winter and summer) are both too pink for my skin. (I am probably on the darker side of NC25).
The packaging is fairly nice, as well. It's in a squeeze bottle so there is no wasting of product when you dispense it.
I really love this foundation! I never thought to try this one, even though I have had SAs recommend it to me for its oil-controlling properties, but I never actually bought it..I think because I don't have acne. As Spring is here and so is warmer weather, my Clinique Even Better foundation was feeling a bit too dewy for the warm climate, and so I was looking for a foundation for the warmer weather. I do not have acne, and am fortunate to have very clear skin, but usually have some bumpiness on my forehead that are not pimples but more like irritation. Since wearing this foundation, my skin is so smooth and the bumpiness has gone away.. my skin also feels so clean and fresh. I do not have the dewy/oily feeling that makes me feel self-conscious...instead I have fresh looking and natural looking skin that makes me feel like I look good all day. :).. With a good moisturizer underneath I feel that I can even wear this foundation in the colder months even though I am combo-skinned in the colder climate. I still love the Even Better foundation, but I think that this foundation has taken its place as my go-to product! Love it! I am the color Fresh Neutral and it is a good match and gives me a healthy color. It also does not accentuate any fine lines I may have so I feel like I can wear this for many years to come. :)
