This stuff is a miracle worker! I have extremely acne prone skin with horrible hormonal acne. I started using this to get rid of acne scars and it actually cleared my skin up to about 90% clear! My skin hasn't been this clear in over a year! I've been using it for just about a month and my skin is starting to slowly look better, it's not an overnight miracle it definitely takes time. I would highly recommend this product. Compared to Mederma the price is lower and it doesn't have parabens and other nasty chemicals. I use this morning and night. I typically wash my face with a mild cleanser then tone with a mixture of witch hazel and tea tree oil and then in the morning I use clean & clear dual action moisturizer but at night I use acne.org benzoyl peroxide I then wait for 5-10 minutes at the least before I apply the Derma e scar gel so that everything else has been absorbed into my skin. After applying the Derma e scar gel in the morning I wait at least another 5-10 mins before applying my mineral makeup so that it has time to absorb.
I LOVE this stuff! First off, I've tried MANY MANY MANY different foundations and this is by far my favorite. I always loved the original liquid Revlon ColorStay, until I recently started omitting parabens from my beauty products and sadly the original liquid contains parabens. HOWEVER, the new Whipped Creme does not! I honestly like the Whipped Creme ColorStay better than the liquid anyways. I feel as though the Buff shade matches my skin tone even better (if that was even possible!) than the liquid Buff. I think the Whipped Creme is a little lighter than the original, but for me the slight color difference wasn't big enough to change shades and actually was to my advantage. I get extremely oily all over and this stuff literally stays put ALL day. I set it with powder, of course, but do not use a setting spray. I love that I can get that perfect air brushed look with my due fiber face brush aka skunk brush. I first apply with a foundation brush and then buff with my skunk brush and set with powder. I am also very acne prone and this product does not cause acne for me, huge plus, and it contains salicylic acid! One of the only cons I can find is that it takes a good makeup remover to get this stuff off! ALSO A RECOMMENDATION TO ANYONE GOING TO PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT: KEEP THE PROTECTIVE PLASTIC PIECE FOUND UNDER THE LID!! I am so glad I kept mine, It keeps the product from getting all over the lid and oozing out. I also recommend using a makeup spatula or something similar to take out a small amount of product to keep from spreading bacteria! Overall Pros: Stays put all day, even on super oily skin NO PARABENS! Airbrushed look is achievable Doesn't cause acne! Price Overall Cons: Can get messy, JUST MAKE SURE TO KEEP PLASTIC PIECE UNDER LID Hard to get off at night

This product is great for summer months when wearing heavy foundation isn't an option. I do like that it matches my extremely fair skin tone pretty well. It has decent coverage, better than a tinted moisturizer but not as good as a foundation as a BB cream should be. It looks VERY orange out of the tube but does match very well once applied.
