It’s time to do a review on Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup! So this foundation contains salicylic acid (0.5%), but it did absolutely nothing for my acne. FYI, this foundation contains denatured alcohol. I honestly think that’s where the oil control comes from. Not the salicylic acid. I have a lower strength BHA that doesn’t help with oil control either. It’s too low to do anything. The shade of this foundation was too dark on my skin. Once again, the color I have is fresh alabaster. It’s one of the fair shades. Way. Too Dark. If you have pale skin, this isn’t it. I can see a clear distinction between my face and neck. I tried this foundation with and without a base. It worked better with a base. The foundation was thin. Maybe I’m not used to traditional liquid foundations? I switched over to bb creams many moons ago. Bb creams just feel much better on my skin. It clings onto my skin better. Coverage is moderate. It’s buildable. But it starts looking cakey and unnatural when a few more layers is applied. Did it break me out? I did notice some acne using this foundation. They were those annoying closed comedones (not cystic acne). I stopped using this foundation and went back to my bb creams. So, I didn’t like Clinique Acne Solutions Liquid Makeup. I was expecting it to be better for my skin. Something that feels lightweight, with good coverage, and helps with acne (all in one). It didn’t meet my expectations. I wouldn’t recommend this foundation. I think there are better options out there.

P.S. I finished Dr Jart+ Silver Label Rejuvenating BB Cream and tossed it out. I decided not to purchase it again. I’ll do review on this bb cream plus others next time.

Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++

I used Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ a couple of times when my skin was feeling very dry. It helped, but I can’t use this sunblock long term. It’s way too heavy for my skin type. It made my skin appear more oily too. It was good while it lasted. I stopped using it after a few days and went back to my Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30. It’s lightweight, absorbs into the skin, and leaves my skin matte. Ever since I added rosehip oil into my skin care routine, my skin isn’t as dry anymore. The combination of Neutrogena Visibly Even Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 (am) and rosehip oil (pm) is working for me. I’m not going to use Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF 50+ PA+++ again. Now I really know if it’s good for my skin or not. It’s not for me. I wish it worked, but my oily skin doesn’t like it. This sunblock is good for people with truly dry skin.
