Firstly I highly recommend and follow religiously the acne.org regime for mild to severe acne sufferers. I ran out of the benzoyl peroxide from Daniel Kern but I was delaying to repurchase just because with international shipping it seemed a bit pricey and this one is readily available in Australia for $16 (Priceline) for a 50g tube. BUT it does NOT work well under foundation! With the generous amount you need on the acne.org program it just sits on top of your skin and my foundation just clumped to where I put this BP. It made me look so patchy. I had to rub of the mess and reapply my makeup. The consistency is creamier/thicker than the acne.org BP. And anyway the acne.org BP is cheaper per gram even with international shipping cost. Definitely going back to it.
I NEVER do reviews, I mostly read them. But when I saw how highly regarded this moisturiser is I feel I had to say something because its really NOT good as everyones been stating. I am on the acne.org regime and while it felt like heaven sent during the peeling phase. I found this moisutriser actually doesnt really moisturise. Ive slathered this on consistently for months, i thought it was so perfect that I bought another gigantic jar to keep in the car, but now looking at my skin it still stays dry after you wash it off. Its kind of like lip balms, while they feel good and hydrating when you put it on, as soon as it come off you see its done no lasting moisturising at all! I am not light handed with this at night to, i put it on like a mask but it doesnt seem to change the texture of my dry skin at all. At least its cheap and non-fragranced, doesnt break me out and I feel comfortable to use it on my baby.

I actually recommend this when your in a rush and after something to chuck in your gym bag. Quick moisturiser that does a reasonable job at evening out your skin tone and providing a sheer cover while providing spf. It definitely loses points for the colour range. It’s that kind of pink or orange old school cheap drugstore foundation colour range. I have to use a translucent powder to calm the orangeness down but once that’s on, I find the combination pretty good (I use Australis finishing silica powder). Compared to my skin79 this one is something i use in between days I dont care much about what I look like, just off to do the grocery run or come home from the gym, while my skin79 is something I'd use to work. I much prefer the pink skin79 texture as it just feels more luxurious and creamy yet still light enough to quickly whack on with fingers but because its in a cute but not very practical pump bottle I swap it for my garnierBB cream instead, as the tube travels much better. Overall dont disregard Garnier, just try it because its easily accesible (unlike skin79 if your in Australia you'll have to order on ebay and wait for ages and risk buying fakes), its pretty cheap and it pretty much does what it claims
