Almost don't want to write this review because it feel about like a beauty secret, but as an acne sufferer for most of my life I know how much other people value good reviews of acne products.

I LOVE THIS.
Bought it on a whim after watching too many Korean beauty videos on YouTube and then panicked after reading some not - so-good reviews. However I've been using it for …

YESSSSSS. yes yes yes yes yes.
I love this so much. It was recommended to me by first my GP and then my dermatologist when I started down the road to accutane (roaccutane/isotretinoin) which should say a lot.

Pros:
-Lasts ages, and i use it twice a day every day without fault
-takes off any makeup missed with makeup remover
-non comedogenic
-great with very …

SO disappointed in this.

I bought two tubes, one of the lightest colour and one of the next shade up, to mix. So overall I spent £38. I read so many good reviews and was excited to have something not only designed to cover scars but that's also oil free and claims to be non-comedogenic.

HOWEVER:

- It didn't fully cover my scars, which I could live with …

I LOVE this product. When I ran out and was still waiting for my new tube to be delivered I refused to leave the house. I really love it.

I probably use this product very differently from how most people would, so bear with me.

I apply a thin layer all over my face with a beauty blender - I have a LOT of acne scarring and hyper pigmentation (just finished an isotretinoin …

I actually love this foundation. Its a little yellowy for my skin tone, but being on isotretinion (accutane) makes my skin super red so this is actually a bonus atm.

Lots of reviews I've read say that this is no good for oily skin types and that it doesn't last long and that it causes break outs. My experiences could not be more the opposite. I had very oily, sensitive, acne …

FINALLY bought into the hype and was ready to be disappointed as I couldn't see how it could possibly be as good as everyone says it is.

BEST DECISION EVER.

Gave - surprisingly - incredible coverage with just my standard foundation and some concealer - a feat. considering my severe scarring and hyper-pigmentation.

Great with liquid foundation, powders …

I have repurchased this so many times I've lost count. Kiko is such an underrated brand, however with several more stores opening across Britain (there used to be only one in London) I think it will become much more popular very quickly.

This concealer is INCREDIBLE. I suffer from severe acne and am mid way through isotretonion treatment (accutane). This covers all my spots …

Firstly I gave this a high packaging rating because I had no issue whatsoever with it; just basic foundation packaging.
As for the product - I hated it.
I so so so so so wanted to love it, I read so many great reviews and was excited to have an all in one product to cover my acne, extreme scaring and hyper pigmentation.
After watching several online tutorials I applied the product …

Firstly I really like this product, I have acne prone skin that looks oily very quickly and this helps to mattify my skin throughout the day. Repeated application is definitely needed (for me at least anyway) however even without reapplication i'm left with only a dewy look rather than an oil slick. Additionally it does not look even a little bit cakey, even with heavy application (hard to …Read more
