I have used this product just as the directions state and I have never had it work for me. It does not hide blemishes like it claims. The product itself goes on easily, isn't greasy, in general is a great product but it does not hide already present blemishes. It does contain acne fighting ingredients but I don't believe it is for skin that has tons of breakouts. For the price you would think it would better hide flaws in the skin, instead it works best for barely there acne. I love all the Bare Minerals makeup because that does hide flaws in the skin but this product itself I am really disappointed in. I personally would go with a different acne treatment and just stick with their makeup line from Bare Minerals. Pros: Goes on easily, contains acne fighting medication, isn't greasy Cons: Doesn't hide all blemishes like you would think. Overall, this product may work for others but I have incredibly oily skin and it does not work well for me.
