Fantastic for Dry, Acne-Prone Sensitive Skin

”I’ve honestly never written a review before- but after cycling through 20+ foundations after trying to find something that worked all day through work for my dry, sensitive, acne-prone, very pale skin and using this product I had to write one. 1.) It has strong moderate coverage - enough that with acne scars, active blemishes etc. you won’t need any concealer 90% of the time (or you dab a little extra in that area). You can make it light enough to seem quite sheer however, especially when used over a good moisturizer/primer/oil. 2.) IT DOESN’T IRRITATE MY SKIN. I’d been using the Acne Solutions foundation for a while- but that was way too drying for me. TRY THIS INSTEAD if you have sensitive/acne skin. It’s a better product, believe me. 3.) It doesn’t FLAKE. They don’t call this long-wear, but believe me it’s in place at 10pm+ when I apply it at 6am for work. It’s also very easy to touch up- though seriously has never been necessary for me except when going from day to night look. 4.) It goes a long way, and you get that good coverage using very little product. 5.) It’s easy to apply with a brush, blender, or fingers- and it looks good using all three methods. 6.) You can use if you’re dryer or oilier- which is FANTASTIC if you’re combination or for seasonal changes. 7.) Handles weather pretty well. In hot weather skip the oil (if you use an oil) under to make it stay better. In cold weather keep that so it sinks in better. 8.) It doesn’t oxidize - by the end of the day it’s true to the color you applied. Conclusion- THIS IS FANTASTIC. I’ve tried foundations at all price points- long wear, sensitive skin, etc. literally everything- and this is the best (for me at least). I wish they’d pay me to say that, but sadly no, I am someone who buys all my make up out of my own pocket :’( give it a try.”

Clinique was born from high-profile New York dermatologist Dr. Norman Orentreich’s belief that you can get great skin with the right products. Believing in the good doctor’s visionary philosophy, the Estee Lauder family recruited him to create a new beauty line that brought about the 3-Step Skin Care System—cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing—and gave rise to the now iconic beauty brand. Today, millions of women trust Clinique and its dermatology-tested, allergy-tested, and fragrance-free line of products.
