My skin is dry and very sensitive, so I have a hard time finding a foundation and concealer that doesn't make me breakout, but after hearing so much about this foundation I decided to give it a try. It's definitely pricey, especially since I was looking for a foundation, concealer and light powder. I spent around $145 on all three products but didn't mind since I was hoping that this would become a new favorite and not make me breakout. I purchased this in October and still had plenty of foundation in the bottle and it's now the middle of January, so it does last a while. I struggled with these products at first because the foundation seemed to get really greasy looking throughout the day, but I started setting it with a very light dusting of the pressed powder and it looked so great. (I can't use primer because it always seems to clog my pores) ~ The foundation was dewy but not greasy and had a beautiful glow. Super comfortable to wear and didn't feel like I was wearing anything too thick. Well, fast forward a few months and now I have horrible acne all over my face. It seemed to be okay for the first two months, but into December I started getting little clusters of acne on my chin and cheeks. (I've never ever broken out on my cheeks before) Not only acne, but it was almost like a rash. Especially on my chin and around my nose, I developed red spots that looked like acne but itched and hurt very badly. My face became such a mess that I haven't been leaving the house because it looks so bad and feels horrible. I thought it could have been from my birth control but I stopped using these products about five days ago and my skin is already clearing up. My sister has skin similar to mine and she started using the BB cream around the same time I bought my foundation, and the same thing happened to her. Luckily I was able to return these products to Nordstrom's where I purchased them, but I will never recommend Jane Iredale products to anyone again. If you have sensitive skin, I highly recommend NOT trying these products!!
