"My skin has been so dire lately that I was pleased to find out that I’d been picked to review this foundation.
It has a strange chemically smell (which I put down to the spot-fighting ingredients) and, quite a cakey look on me once applied – it definitely highlights any dry areas on your skin though it’s actually aimed at oily skin so it’s probably not really for my skin type.
It gave good coverage (covered everything I needed to) and lasted for a good 9 hours without needing to be reapplied. Despite the cakiness around my nose this foundation made me look fresh and awake and didn’t need powder or anything over the top. I’m not sure if this foundation has SPF in it, I’m tempted to think not as I can’t find anything that refers to SPF about it, it is oil-free though.
I had to give up after a week as I really really felt it was drying my skin out too much. It didn’t do much in terms of reducing the number of spots I have but it definitely did dry them out quicker, it didn’t reduce redness or soreness or anything like that though.
Overall, this foundation wasn’t the right one for me but if you have oily or very oily skin and break out as a result, I think this would be the foundation for you – good coverage, oil-fighting and dries up blemishes".
