This has been a great product for me. I have skin that tends to be bumpy without my daily antibiotic prescription. It really smooths my skin. I use it in conjunction with additional BHA products and AHA peels from Make Up Artist's Choice, on those days I don't feel like I'm waging war. It's a good product to have on hand - very soothing.

The newer version of the True Match foundation is what I've been using (I noticed that the packaging is different from the picture above) and I love it. I have combination skin and am acne prone, and it's perfect for me. Coverage stays well, but isn't cakey or obvious that I'm wearing foundation.
Skincare - Face -Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - 8% BHA Serum

I have been using the 8% BHA Serum (every other day or so) for about 3 weeks, along with a 40% glycolic peel, and I believe the BHA Serum has done just as much as the peel for my face. I'm sure the combination of this and the peel are working together, but I don't think I would have had as good results with the peel alone. I have somewhat oily skin in the t-zone, and very large pores on my nose. The BHA Serum makes my face feel very calm (after the first few minutes - there's an initial stinging) and very smooth. I deal with cystic acne, and the calm feeling is a godsend. Plus I can't remember the last time my skin was this smooth. I'm still breaking out a little, but that's somewhat normal in the first 3 weeks as all the oils are coming to the surface. One stubborn multi-month-long blemish has finally started to give up it's fight. My pores are noticeably smaller. I'm very pleased with this and I find for myself that BHA products are much more effective than AHAs. It might just be a matter of everyone's experience being different. I HIGHLY recommend trying this if you've used a 2% BHA (like Paula's Choice, or Neutrogena's Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment) in the past and have had a positive experience.
