At first I thought this product was amazing, it went on smooth and seemed to even out my skin tone BUT after a few weeks of use it wasn't providing any hydration, my skin suddenly felt tight and dry when applying it - really uncomfortable! I have quite dry rosacea skin which can get oily throughout the day, however, this was starting to have a negative effect on my skin. I was thoroughly …Read more

So I really thought I would like this product considering the minimal ingredients BUT it completely ruined the moisture barrier in my skin, it got really dry and irritated in my rosacea prone areas...maybe it is the mineral oil, I'm unsure but all I know it that I can't use this - I did trial it for 3 weeks so gave it enough of a chance. Unfortunately Avene is not for me...I also found …Read more

Arghhh I was really looking forward to trying this as I have dry skin and this is supposed to look really smooth etc but omg this did not last on a London commute. I got to work and within an hour it was sliding off and looking patchy, just awful! I had to remove it before anybody saw me, nightmare! This is NOT a keeper for me

Cons :

Way too many silicones
greasy
I could feel this on my face
After a couple months of use was causing clogged pores
Just awful......

Update - this is good during the winter months, my skin seems to like it when it's cold plus makeup glides nicely over it, the silicones do still frustrate me but until I find something better I'll continue …

I wore this primer to an even on Saturday, it was all day 12 hours so I needed something to hold my makeup in place. This however didn't do anything apart from break me out in pimples on my cheeks and I never break out there. They are the small cluster type so I know this is the primer. Luckily I only had a tester so if you have rosacea sensitive skin beware!

I dabbed this onto a couple of red marks on my cheek and literally didn't cover it at all - I found this quite runny and felt like it didn't dry under my eyes. I always know if I like something the first time I use it and unfortunately this is pretty rubbish! will give to my mum and see if she likes it!

I have been using this for 3 years and wouldn’t use any other cleanser, I don’t want to know how much I have spent on it but it does the job. I smear it on my face and use a cotton wool pad to remove the makeup then wash my face. I have Rosacea and it doesn’t irritate it.

I am quite pale and this made my face look a lot darker than my neck, I didn’t realise at first but as the day went on it started to look darker - made me feel a bit self conscious! Plus I have a feeling it has clogged my pores a bit and I have Rosacea - not the best mix....Clinique need to make a physical sunscreen, still not sure how I feel about them as a company. Yes they don’t use fragrance …Read more

So I am only giving this 3 stars as I've only been using it one week. I usually give something a good month before deciding if I like it as can take a couple weeks for breakouts to appear. The consistency is creamy and surprisingly very easy to blend considering it's quite matt. I am quite fair and use shade 3 which is a perfect match. It covers redness pretty well and lasts a good 6 …Read more
