Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Foundation: Digitorial

This is a digitorial post, written by me on behalf of  Clinique via Handpicked Media. All opinions are 100% mine.

Clinique have released a moderate coverage foundation called ‘Anti-Blemish Solutions’. This liquid foundation is designed to gently keep blemish-prone skin comfortable and balanced by minimising excess sebum without drying out your skin. Once your skin has improved, the foundation then continues to safeguard your skin against future breakouts, so ideally you’ll only ever need one foundation to keep your skin looking in great condition all year round.

Check it out in more detail here

Take a look at the video below to see it in action:


I'll be trying this foundation out for myself shortly and since I do suffer from the occasional random breakout, I'm intrigued to see whether this will work or not. Stay tuned for the next instalment.

10 beauty lovers have sumthin to say:

Interesting video. It's good to know they've actually used a girl who has the odd spot, too. Sick of seeing adverts for spot treatments where the model has completely flawless skin.
Haven't received my blusher yet, fingers crossed it hasn't got lost in the post xx

VexintheCity said...

@Lauren Loves - Yeah, true. I noticed that too. I only posted the lot out yesterday, so you should get it by Tues if not tomorrow x

I'll say the same thing I said on Get Lippie! I fancy some of this but I think the finished look is not good in the vid. white powdery face!

VexintheCity said...

@Charlie - LOL The spot looks crusty too!

TalluluhBella said...

I got this and I don't like it at all. The finish is powdery and it actually made me break out on my chin!

JustSugar said...

I tried this and I love it. It is so flawless and beautifully "finished" on the skin, and only a tiny amount needed to cover. Having seen it on fair skin whilst at the counter, I do think that the shades 01-05 look amazing, and better than 06-08....
I don't think that this alone will rid you of blemishes! As much as it is a "treatment foundation", I think that you do need to be treating your skin accordingly, then using this as "the correct foundation" for blemish-prone skin which helps with the recovery and clearing of blemishes because of its ingredients. It's a support, not a skincare solution IMO.

oh and the comment about it being crusty, whatever you put on a spot that's what happens! for me anyway...

does this have salicylic acid in? if it does people with spots, i think, should stay away from this having had spots all my life, as have my brothers, i have seen lots of dermatologists and spoken to lots and i really think spot fighting treatments, washes, wipes etc and everything lke that only make skin worse. and even if it does get rid of the spot it makes the skin very very very dry and scab for a long period of time. all dermatologists i have spoken to have reccomended using simple products, supririsngly without any spot fighting ingredients in...and whilst it didn't get rid of mine it;'s certainly helped improve them..mabe for someone with the odd spot it might wrk but for someone like myself who has 10-15 daily it will not work as it's not really dealing with the real problem. i might be slightly biased though as i really do think clinique will tell you anything, if they think you'll believe it, as they've done with me before
i look forward to hearing your thoughts though, love your blog!

sorry for the rant haha xx

@TalluluhBella - Not a fan then? LOL It's a shame you hated it

@JustSugar - I'm glad it worked for you. I agree and don't think you can rely on a foundation to solve all your skin troubles either.

@Anonymous - I don't know, I've not tried it yet! I've included a link to it on the website within the post, maybe that has more information for you. I don't think it's gonna perform miracles either, I was just reeling off what Clinique claim the product will do.

@ Anonymous: I think it depends. Salicylic acid is well documented to be effective in the treatment of blemishes/spots/pimples/whatever(!) Obviously if your case is chronic and not merely external/cosmetic/superficial or transient, then you need medical attention, because you have a condition requiring clinical attention. For people who have congested skin due to neglect, bacteria build-up etc...then cosmetic products including SA will and have worked for them.
Not everything works for everyone, is the moral of the story. Clinique works for some people/many people, and not for others/many others. I dont think that your negative experience necessarily means that the brand and its products are a con.
