Product Review: Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Liquid Makeup
I have suffered with breakouts for a large period of my life, and every single time, I have slathered foundation on top of them Yes, I know that I should 'let the skin breathe' and I don't want extra oil caked around pustules, but when I hate the way my skin looks I just want to cover it up or hide away. That is why the Clinique Anti Blemish Solutions Foundation is such genius as it allows you to cover up without the guilt.
The oil free foundation is available in a moderate to full cover, and comes in 8 different shades. It's chock full with blemish fighting agents, including Salicylic Acid to help remove dead skin cells, Laminaria Sacharrina Extract to help regulate sebum production and Hydroxydecanoic Acid to help stop spots spreading.
So does it work?
The foundation is very easy to apply and blends in quickly. It leaves the skin looking very flawless, and is a great concealer, evening out redness, and giving you a great smooth surface. It includes caffeine to reduce redness and calm the skin, and in this area it works 110%.
The downsides are that it can feel quite drying on the skin, and stick to any areas which aren't oil pits, so you want to make sure your skin real is bad enough to warrant this- if you have one lone spot, it's not for you.
One friend swears by this, saying it has changed her skin for good, and she now has a peachy rather than pitted complexion. It's a great tool for those who insist on wearing foundation even when they have breakouts, and I'm so grateful this now exists.
