            Typically use Dr. Perricone's No Foundation, but wanted a secondary foundation to make the Dr. P last longer (it's extremely expensive). I'm a big Clinique fan and this foundation is amazing. Light to medium coverage, buildable, nice finish, wears well, looks natural & feels great!

            I have/had very bad acne and I tried this out. It didn't give me full coverage so I didn't like it as much. It made me break out.

              I just started using this product and so far I love it. It feels light, stays matte, and has great coverage over my acne scars. My face is usually super oily but with this foundation I have seen a significant decrease. Let's just hope this keeps my acne clear, won't know until I use it a bit longer.

                  Ordered fresh fair, as it is the lightest shade they have, and did not come close to my skin tone. It is way too dark to be their lightest shade.

                    Hi, I've been trying out the CC+ medium in it cosmetics but I have acne prone skin so would the acne solutions liquid cover up my blemishes? CC+ corrects my skin tones but doesn't fully cover blemishes so I was wondering if it would be better to try acne solutions?

                      Hello! In the Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer formula, the number is actually the shade, so the shade is 01. Sorry for the confusion. If you were interested in trying Acne Solutions Makeup, the closest shade should be Fresh Alabaster.

                      A:

                      This product does not contain an SPF, but it can be coupled with an SPF underneath very nicely. It is great for acne prone skin! Another option is the Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Foundation.
                      If SPF in your foundation is most important to you, you may want to try Clinique's BB cream or Even Better Foundation.
                      Clinique suggests wearing an SPF under any foundation, even if it contains an SPF. The amount of SPF needed for full protection is often more product than most wear or desire in their foundation.
