Not sure how much I love the colour of this bronzer, but I continue to use it because it smells so incredibly delicious and adds a nice matte finish to my face. You really don't need to use much of it, so I could see it lasting a long time. Another plus is it didn't break me out!
I've been on the hunt for a good foundation for my skin type for a long time. My skin is extremely oily, acne-prone, and scarred...basically a nightmare. After a horrible experience with the Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage for Face and Body, I was almost ready to give up on Estee Lauder foundations. I ended up getting a 10 day sample of Double Wear- the colour was a perfect match for my skin. After I used up my entire sample I bought the full size. This is probably the best foundation I have come across. Medium-full coverage, decent oil control, and most importantly- doesn't break me out! Just a warning, though. This product WILL break you out if you don't remove it properly. I suggest using something like olive oil to help remove makeup, followed by a lathery gel cleanser and toner. Or if you can afford expensive makeup remover, I'm sure that works too!

I was hesitant to try this product at first, because my crazy oily, acne-prone, and acne-scarred skin breaks out SO easily. I've also had a few bad experiences with natural cleansers in the past. Anyways, I'm so glad I gave this cleanser a chance. I'm probably on my fifth bottle of this stuff. Seems to help control my oil buildup, removes all my makeup (if I'm wearing a heavy foundation I use olive oil to help remove makeup, too), and it is extremely refreshing and brightening! Best cleanser I've found yet, highly recommended!
I was really excited to try this product- thought it would be a great match for my extremely oily, acne-prone/scarred skin. They were out of my shade at the estee lauder counter, so the lady gave me a 10-day sample. The first day I wore the foundation, I LOVED it. You really do only need the tiniest amount (even to cover all of my acne/scarring) and it seemed to apply really smoothly. The oil-control seemed good at first, but after a day or two I started getting oilier and oiler? Now, after a few days of using this product I have broken out in places I don't usually, such as my forehead and nose. Also made acne on my cheeks and chin worse, too. So disappointing because I was prepared to buy the full version of this product after reading reviews! Guess the search continues...
This product completely broke me out all over my face, especially my cheeks. The coverage was decent, but felt heavy/greasy and I personally thought it looked cakey. It was gross-feeling in general, and i will never purchase this product ever again. To be fair, I also tried the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder, which wasn't too bad at all- unlike the mousse, which my skin is still recovering from.
I've been using this product for a little over 2 weeks now. It has cleared most of the acne on my cheeks and chin. It's the first thing I've used on my skin that actually makes a noticeable difference! I would DEFINITELY buy this again =] My skin is clearing up by the day! It is a little bit drying (obviously) so, I use a moisturizer in the morning and use the treatment at night. THANK YOU ACNE.ORG PS: the cleaner is good, too.
