I just purchased this product today because I broke out again recently and I know it’s because I fell asleep with my makeup on. 😖 BUT! They just built a new shopping center 10-15 mins from my house and THERE’S AN ULTA. So I went there to originally purchase more brush heads for my Clarisonic but the Clinique Acne Solutions foundation kept catching my eye, so I had one of the employees do a color match for me. She removed some of my foundation where a red mark is (healing pimple) and applied some of this foundation to it. She let me look at it and I decided I would give this a go. Little did I realize that when I removed my makeup tonight, I noticed the red mark was almost practically gone. I haven’t full on tried this foundation yet, but if my red marks disappear THAT QUICKLY with this, I will be a frequent buyer of this product. Let’s see how it goes! I’ll check back with an update in 2 weeks maybe?

This foundation is AMAZING! I was between getting this one or the beyond perfecting foundation by Clinique. However, from time to time I struggle with acne and decided that this one was the way to go. I am so glad I got it. It is so lightweight that I always forget I have makeup on when I wear it. It doesn't clog your pores, it has really good medium-full coverage, and it leaves a natural, skin-like finish. Every time I've worn this foundation I always receive compliments on how "Nice my skin is", but little do people know its this foundation! 10/10 would recommend. As far as it helping to treat and prevent my acne, I haven't been wearing it that long to know its effects on my skin overall. One thing to mention is that while it covers my dark spots well, I do need to use a concealer on top if I want that complete full coverage look.

This has got to me my favorite foundation in the entire world. It is super lightweight, yet gives around medium coverage. You can build up the coverage though and it still looks great. Since I've been struggling with acne for a long time, this product honestly doesn't make my face worse like some foundations do. The salicylic acid inside even helps treat! It's probably my most repurchased foundation ever and will probably continue to be for a long time!
Story time: Around 3-4 years ago, I started to get the worst breakouts I've ever had in my life. It went from being a few horrible breakouts to just super horrible acne. I would struggle every single day to conceal all the redness, but covering the redness didn't mean you couldn't still see all the bumps. So I struggled to find the right foundation. Everything I tried seemed to be making my sensitive skin worse. It wasn't until I tried Clinique's acne solutions foundation that I finally found what I'd been looking for. This foundation was super lightweight, and even though it wasn't super full coverage, it would cover everything I needed it to without looking like a horrible cakey mess. Plus, as an added bonus, it contains Salicylic Acid in it, which honestly seems to help treat some breakouts here and there. Guys this isn't sponsored or anything. Clinique has no idea who the heck I am. But if you're like me and you've struggled with acne, I truly suggest giving this foundation a shot.

I have used this foundation for probably 5 years now. It is my all time favorite foundation. I love that it's non-comedogenic and has salicylic acid in it. It layers beautifully! It's a full coverage foundation but I still use two coats. I would be fine with one application but I really like to be completely covered. I can't believe I've used it this long actually. I've tried multiple other foundations and I always come back to this one.

Also, just a tip, if you're out of foundation and desperate you can cut open the bottle and there's a ton of leftover product.

Fresh Vanilla. I can’t say that I am a huge fan of this product. I wanted to try something new that wouldn’t make me break out any more than usual. Within a few hours my skin looks very orange. I wish I knew about this app prior to purchasing because the orange tint seems to be a common review. I am continuing to use it due to the price but I will not be repurchasing. The foundation does have good coverage but it’s not my favorite.

This is one of my favorite foundations and I’m constantly reaching for it. I love that it keeps me matte and treats my acne while at the same time offering full coverage for it all day. Two birds with one stone. I’ve repurchased it before and I’d do it again. The only possible downfall is it kinda settles a little onto my face throughout the day (though I don’t prime for this foundation) and oxidizes slightly. But overall the pros outweigh the negatives.

I first purchased Acne Solutions at a Macy’s in high school and it was my foundation of choice for years. It was the only foundation that didn’t break me out. It contains salicylic acid and is kind of drying. It is matte. If you moisturize well it improves the dryness but the formula doesn’t have a dewy skin-like look. However, it has great coverage and you don’t need much to cover acne, which is great since the last thing you want to do is cake on foundation and clog your pores even more.

I really like the coverage I get with this foundation!! I would say it gives medium coverage and it leaves a satin finish. I like it most because it helps your skin regulate! I was having some problems because of a different product until the clinique lady told me this would help. After 3 times of wearing it, my skin was back to normal.

I brought this foundation because the lady at the store recommended it for my skin type. This foundation is medium coverage and natural finish. The color range isn’t the best but I did find a shade for myself. When using it for around a couple months my skin did clear up and I got less and less breakouts. But since I don’t have oily skin I did have to touch up my skin with powder just a couple time throughout the day.

This foundation was a GAME CHANGER. I had never thought to try it before I went to an actual Sephora and got a free makeover. They used this brand and I was instantly inlove. It is so lightweight you can’t even tell you are wearing it (even if you sweat) and it doesn’t make your skin break out or clog up. I can’t say for sure that it helped get rid of my adult acne but it certainly helped along with other methods.

Does this help reduce acne as well or just used to cover it up?
