Pros:
- coverage is light to medium (blend-able)
- light/medium 200 would be a better choice for my NC20 skin
- set with a powder and it will probably last longer
- does help a little with blemishes (smaller whiteheads? but doesn't get rid of it I think)

Cons:
- light 100 is TOO pink (I use it to highlight now LOL)
- staying power not as long without powder
(wore this for a 4 hour flight and it kinda all rubbed off)

Overall, great product I guess. Thinking of repurchasing again.

I can't speak to the acne fighting medication, but to cover acne this concealer is great!
It works very well when used before foundation as it dries quite quickly and has very good coverage. It hides redness very well and lasts a long time. This is my HG concealer for spots. I'm sure the acne medication in it works decently as a bacteria fighter and a barrier to the rest of your makeup. Definitely worth a try.

This concealer used with the BlemishClear foundation has seriously helped my skin. I had cystic acne and used proactiv in the mornings and nightime and now I only get pimples. I think it's good because it has that salicylic acid in it which helps breakouts rather than simply covering them up. Not that great for large acne or very dark marks but the knowledge that your foundation is helping improve your skin instead of aggravating gave me sound mind

I'm so happy that I found this product because of MUA. I don't get a lot of acne, but when I do it's always very noticeable because it's either on my chin or right in between my eyebrows. I really love that this product has salicylic acid in it so that I know that it's helping me fight acne rather than making me break out.

The product blends in really beautifully with my tinted moisturizer and covers the pimples that I do get extremely well. I only need a tiny little dab of the product and it's more than enough to cover up. I agree with the previous reviews that say to NOT use this product underneath your eyes, this should solely be for acne and other blemishes because it can be drying. For underneath my eyes I use Rimmel's 2-in-1 highlighter/concealer and I really recommend that for dark circles.

The only con for me is the packaging, I HATE that it's a doe foot applicator. It just doesn't make sense especially for a product that is supposed to help fight acne because if you apply the applicator directly to acne and then put it back into the tube, it's just going to create bacteria and end up causing more acne. It really should be in a squeeze tube. However, it's not really a big concern to me because I just put a little bit on the (clean) back of my hand and then use my fingers to apply.
It's also a little pricey to me for a drugstore product as I bought it for like $8-$9, but whatever. I think this product is going to last me a really long time and it works really well so money well spent.

Anyway, I really love this product and highly recommend it. If my opinions on this product should change then I will definitely edit this review with an update. But so far, so good!

I picked this up on a whim because I was looking for another product that wasn't yet available here in Canada. I wasn't expecting much from this but I have found myself loving it. It covers acne scars well and covers breakouts phenomenally, I love that it has salicylic acid in it too. Overall really great product !

This concealer does what I want it to do: to cover up my blemishes and not create new ones. I am not claiming this as miracle concealer but this does make my blemishes appear hidden and less red. I haven't noticed the concealer heal my blemishes but I never expect it since it is a concealer and not a skin care product. it non irritating and easy to blend. The only thing I don't like about it is the packaging. I hate doe foot applicators. I wished it came out as a squeeze out tube since it would be more hygienic. I am afraid of the coming months when the concealer would be more contaminated because the doe foot applicator touches my skin, then it goes back in the tube and this domino effect would create new blemishes . I know my views are different from the other reviewers who love this product but I would repurchase IF they packaged it in a squeeze out tube.

Weeks ago I finished my ELF Tone Correcting Concelar [which I liked for how lightweight and natural it looked] and although this 1 week old tube of Almay's has got far more pigment and coverage, I like it too! I put some in the back of my hand, and dab it on with a brush over my eyes or any problem area and it blends in smoothly with my skin and my powder [if I wear any powder on that day]. It lasts all day, seldom collects wherever skin folds and it does look for the most part natural. Matte color.
It hasn't irritated any pimples so far. WHICH IS A PLUS.

I do not know if it actually works on healing pimples, but I will say this covers phenomenally for a drugstore concealer! It is very affordable, has great coverage, and lasts me all day. I have no reason to ever use any other concealer again, well unless they discontinue it. ;)

After using this for almost a year religiously, I noticed in natural light that it looked orange on me. After taking a break from it for a month or two, I have rekindled my love for this concealer. Very thick and covers everything I need it to. Definitely helps heal blemishes as well! I believe this might be a holy grail product!
