    Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

    I have very oily olive complexion skin and I am 41 years old. I look young for my age, but I have always had issues with my facial skin. Most acne creams, lotions, etc. make my olive skin look washed out and pasty. If a good acne product was tinted that matched my skin tone, they would always stop manufacturing it eventually. The hydroxatone anti-acne cc cream is perfect. I use the dark tone with a makeup sponge, but I dot on clinique acne solutions concealer in tone 3 first. The combination is great; matte firm skin with a glamourous tan tone. No greasy silicone feel on my skin like other cosmetics and no pasty skin tone like other acne treatments.

    Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

    I love the way this product looks on my skin. It gives me pretty good coverage for being a CC cream instead of a foundation, but it doesn't last more than 6 hours. It does smudge off during the day, but the most important thing I've found with this product, is that my skin looks 10X better. My acne has cleared up and my redness was reduced.

      Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

      I have VERY sensitive, fair skin, AND I have rosacea. It's been a life-long battle trying to find a foundation that covers my blotchy redness, is lightweight, isn't oily, and doesn't make me break out with acne or hives! I used to use Murads acne foundation, which was amazing and did almost all of the above, so of course that was discontinued. Hours of frantic research following my last drop of the foundation, I found the Hydroxatone CC cream. Reviews weren't as great as Murad products I use, but I do NOT like BB creams so I thought I'd give a CC cream a try. I'm SO glad I did!! I'm in the Navy so natural-looking makeup is a must. I have combination skin, so I still use Murad lotion prior to applying the CC cream, which is a must for dryer skin because of the salicyclic acid. A little lotion, CC on top, and I'm darn near flawless! I'm sure I could get better coverage with something like Laura Mercier foundation (super heavy and think - completely covers rosacea), but it would melt off in the heat! Or I'd pass out from heat exhaustion...
      To summarize, this Hydroxatone CC cream is AMAZING! My skin has never looked so great! I can even go without foundation sometimes and still feel confident! Clears my skin and covers great, doesn't irritate my rosacea, blends perfectly, super lightweight and long lasting! It says to use twice a day for best results, but I only do if I have a breakout, and it's always gone or almost gone by the next day. If I have a huge, painful pimple (ugh), I use this, then a little Murad acne concealer (looks like a long lipstick tube) and a dot of CC cream to blend it in. Doesn't hide the bump from the gigantic pimple, but covers completely.
      I 100% recommend this product! Especially if you have oily/blemished/red skin!

      Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

      It helps minimize breakouts and somewhat helps prevents new breakouts, but not completely. I still see breakouts, but not as much as I used to. This product does help smooth your skin tone, but does not completely cover your blemishes and other skin issues.

          I bought this because I have had good luck with other Hydroxatone products. I have oily skin and this product help keep it in check without stimulating it to pump out more. I don't use it every day because it would be too drying but when I do I notice a clear even tone. It's pricy, but when I run out I will buy it again.

            Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

            I'm 30 and hispanic. I am light complected and use the "light" one. I always have concerns about matching with my skin because I have bit of a yellow undertone and tend to get red in cheek. It covered up the redness I get in my cheeks due to natural blushing that can be annoying. I am surprised that I didn't have a problem with it matching my skin tone. I wasn't sure how I felt about getting a acne type of cc cream but it works great! It's not heavy unnatural coverage so its perfect for me. I don't even have to use powder on top because of the matte finish that it has. I was starting to get a acne problem before I started and it slowed down after I started using this product. I get a pimple here and there but it doesn't get swollen like other times with other makeups that I have used in the past. It doesn't completely keep the pimples away but it definitely reduces them. I was expecting to use a foundation brush with it but I got inpatient so I had to use the beauty sponge to apply it on (which I love and now also can't live without). When I first started using it I noticed it has a little weird smell but it is the acne treatment in it. It didn't take long to get used to it though. However I do agree that this by far is the best one I have ever used. I would definitely recommend it to others with my same concerns.

              Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

              I was so excited to see a CC cream targeted for the acne-prone! However, the results were less than stellar. The products smells fantastic, and was pretty easy to apply (with freshly washed/dried fingers). But it left my skin feeling horribly tacky. I reasoned with myself that I shouldn't be touching my face anyways, and if it cleared my complexion then I would be fine with that fault- but my skin got WORSE with it. I've since discontinued using it, and my skin has improved greatly. The color matched my olive medium toned skin, but the coverage only lasts a few hours (and I work inside). This product is not worth a quarter of it's price.

              made my breakout worse

              Comments about Hydroxatone Anti-Acne CC Cream:

              I switched to this from too faced bb cream because it was making me breakout. after 2 weeks of faithful use, my breakouts were WORSE. I switched back to just using mineral foundation and skipping bb/cc cream all together and 4 days later my breakout is already clearing up. now after researching a bit, I'm finding that bb creams are pore clogging for a lot of people.
