Review for: 1N2 Ecru - Neutral Undertone more...
With oily, acne prone/scarred skin, I need a foundation that will
provide medium to full coverage, not look too overdone (if you're having
the notorious cakey problem that can come with this product try a damp
brush), blendable application, control my oil, will not oxidize, resist
transferring, and match my gold undertone (4W1 is lovely). After many
months of trying to tick all my foundation requirement boxes, I thought
the search was over when I stumbled upon this gem. Allow me to take a
moment to say how GORGEOUS this foundation wears throughout my 10+ hour
days while only needing to blot once. Never have I ever been so excited
to pass a reflective surface and give a content sigh thinking, 'Ah, just
as I applied you..'

So why 4 stars and not 5?
While I adore this foundation, I cannot wear it.

I
break out once a month and once a month only, in small unimpressive
blemishes. But when I was hit with a barrage of cystic acne after a week
of using DW, on my off cycle, and with no changes in my stress levels,
diet, or skincare, I couldn't continue.

Missing all the wonderful
things the foundation provided a month or so later I tried again, only
to have more cystic acne, but this time in only 3 days of wear, again
off cycle and no lifestyle changes.

I believe that the foundation
itself is just too heavy for my skin to manage. The beauty blender, a
flat top brush, a round buffing brush, and my fingers didn't change the
fact that the product had weight to it, I just didn't think it would
pose an issue.

It's disappointing that I not only had to return
my DW, but I'm still on the hunt for that perfect base. I'm excited to
see what Double Wear Light has to offer, as I'll be testing it this week
in shade Intensity 3.5.

I encourage everyone to give the mother
of all foundations a try at least once. The coverage, shade range and
hours and hours of wear time can't be beat. It works for a lot of people
with different skin types, tones, moisture levels and sensitivities.
Unfortunately, I just wasn't one of them.

Lately I have been having problems with combination skin when my skin
was just normal before. Believe me, skin changes as we age! I'm very
oily in the t-zone and very dry on my cheeks and around the mouth area.
My foundation was not going on as smooth and clumping up on dry, dead
skin. I never had to be bothered with exfoliating before but did some
research on the skin problems that I was experiencing and realized that
it was time to add exfoliating to my skin care routine. I received a
sample of Dr. Brandt's microdermabrasion exfoliant and it has changed my
life! I use it twice a week sometimes three. My skin is clear and less
oily! My foundation goes on so smooth now to the point where I use less
whenever I do wear it. I only wear foundation maybe three times a week
anyway but this has made a huge difference in how my makeup looks when I
do want to wear it. My skin has that glow again. I did try using
cheaper exfoliants but I have never gotten the same results compared to
Dr. Brandt. This is worth every dollar! Lasts a long time too. This is a
must-have item for me.
