This stuff is like magic when it comes to feeling like your own skin It blends sooooooooooooo beautifully, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the texture, it's unlike any foundation I've used before. I actually meant to purchase the normal foundation and not the serum gel one, but I'm actually pretty happy with the amount of coverage it provides. It definitely covers redness, and with a couple applications I have pretty evened out skin except the couple of acne scars I have that I cover with concealer. The lasting power on this lasts me like 10 hours + but I set it with foundation, I havent tried wearing it on its own just yet. I've also seen it recommended numerous times on youtube by gurus who are recommending products that will make you look most natural. It's a but pricey especially since its not sold here in the US (that I know of) so I had to buy it off ebay for like $19... definitely with it for me though.
I had tons of blackheads all over my nose, in between my eyebrows, and even developing on my cheeks so I knew I needed to change my skin care routine. I researched and researched which treatment would be the best for me and I learned that BHAs are supposed to be really good for unlodging blackheads. I initially tried samples of Paula's Choice BHA's which made my sensitive skin pretty raw looking and dry. I thought I'd give this a try instead after reading the reviews here and I could not be happier with my results. Week 1 It calmed down the uncomfortable and tight redness that Paula's Choice BHA lotion/gel had caused on my skin, however I noticed during this time where I had a couple pimples on my forehead, more pimples started coming to the surface. This is a purging period, and where ever I had a couple pimples that tended to form, during my first couple weeks after using this the pimples surfaced. They healed MUCH faster than they normally would though, healing in a few days versus a couple weeks. I was freaking out during this time because of all the new pimples, but stuck it out because I heard this happens to some people. Month 1 My skin was tons smoother, although if I used this product both day and night I noticed it would start to feel kind of raw and turn pink, so I recommend starting out maybe once a day or every other day if you have sensitive skin, and then building up your usage after that. By a month into this product although my blackheads were still there, I stopped breaking out in pimples like I normally would!!! And the blackheads around my nose were getting softer and super easy to extract after showering. Month 3 If I did get a pimple by now, it would be small and only last a couple of days, and before using this product I had at least 2-3 pimples on my forehead for the last 2 years :( This product is A GODSEND PEOPLE. Month 4 Blackheads on my forehead are ALL GONE except like 5, versus when I initially started this product EVERY pore on my forehead was at least semi-clogged, and now I could see clear pores, and I could actually see more oil flow during the day on my forehead because my pores were now clear!!! (not alot of oil, just a healthy sheen youd expect to see by mid-day) Month 5 Although this product didnt COMPLETELY get rid of blackheads on my cheeks and nose, it has DRAMATICALLY improved my complexion, and has ridden me of pimples. I havent had a pimple in like 2 months....my skin hasnt been this good since like 4-5 years ago no exaggeration. The blackheads and clogged pores that I still have are extremely small now, and I'm still seeing improvements so I'm still hoping with continued use they'll finally disappear. Use 2x a day after cleasning face, under makeup or moistruizer (but I would recommend for the first month once a day) Tips I have dry skin so I also use cetaphil moisturizing cream (which is the best moisturizer I have ever used, it has transformed my skin as well...but thats another review) The only bad part is I can only buy this online :'( Ive never seen it in a store. But its only like 5-10 dollars depending on the site. I'm on my 3rd tube btw! After trying tons of DIY at home remedies and various other drugstore products nothing has come close to this. I love you Neutrogena!! <3
