I can’t be sure what has caused it, but I am having the worst cystic acne breakout I’ve had in years and I used this for about 3 weeks before I noticed these breakouts. I’m guessing it’s this because it was a new product and contains mineral oil. I do not recommend for sensitive skin!

I couldn't decide between 2 and 3 stars. I ended up choosing 3 because the coverage is good. The problem for me is that this ends up looking very unnatural.

It's ok. From looking at the ingredients, I thought this would be perfect for my congested, acne prone skin with discoloration. Unfortunately, it did almost nothing.
