My skin went completely haywire about a year ago (cystic acne haywire) and I couldn't for the life of me find anything that would reduce the number of breakouts or cover them up. Every concealer I tried just caked on and no acne products seemed to clear my skin up. Somehow I found this concealer one day and decided to try it. Not only did it cover my acne up almost flawlessly, but the blemishes actually did start clearing up. Within a few months of wearing this daily, my skin had gone back to normal. It doesn't always blend seamlessly, but the coverage is very good without being thick and it's saved me from looking woefully unprofessional many times. Any time my skin starts breaking out again, I pull this out of my makeup drawer and within a few days, it's under control again. They're a little pricey, but you can take advantage of drugstore sales and stock up if you know your skin won't be calming down any time soon. And always make sure you dab the product onto your just-washed finger! The packaging is not conducive to cleanliness, so be very wary of that.
