When I first started using this product I loved it. It made my foundation last all day and it smells really nice and needed a primer because I have combination skin and have really dry spots. Unfortunately after a while I started getting really bad breakouts and acne and didn't know why. I changed my foundation, face wash, moisturiser, pillows every two days or so but nothing was causing my breakouts to stop. I was seeking advice from a friend about it and she said this primer caused really bad breakouts on her skin. So I've stopped using it completely and within a few days my breakouts started to clear. Its been over a month now and my skin is back to normal. If you have really oily skin I would not suggest this to you but if your skin is dry it's really great for nourishing those dry spots. It also lasts ages too. I used mine everyday for over a year and it's still not empty yet. Its a mixed review but it made my skin look so bad so I would not buy it again.

I absolutely LOVE this foundation! Powder foundations normally make all the dry parts of my face stand out but this foundation completely hides it and it looks as though I'm wearing nothing at all! Like all the other MUA's have said, use some concealer and lightly circle this MAC Powder over top, you're set to go! A nice light coverage that you need for everyday wear. It lasts all day so I don't need to worry about a touch up during the middle of the day :) The price is great for how long it lasts too :)
I would have never thought of using Honey as a face cleanser until I was looking up reviews on how to get rid of pimple breakouts. It's been about 7 days now and my skin looks and feels great! The first night I used it, I kept it on for about a minute (only because it felt strange I was actually putting Honey on my face) but even after rinsing it off I noticed a difference in how my skin felt. I thought it wouldn't easily rinse off but to my surprise it just dissolves right off the skin with luke warm water. I use it as a cleanser in the morning and as a mask in the night, leaving it on for about 15 minutes and rinse with water. I don't moisturise in the night time, just in the morning before I put my make-up on. The morning after the first time I had used it my skin felt great! All my sore, painful pimples had gone flat, there was still slight redness but even my dry spots had healed over. After the second day, all my pimples had dissapeared and I now have no redness or pimples! The last time I had no pimples would have been in Primary School! It feels great to have clear glowing skin. After trying numerous products (including Proactive and prescribed medications) I have NEVER seen something work so well :) And the price, taste and smell of it just makes it so much more enjoyable :) I always look forward to washing my face with honey :)
