    It goes on very well, lightweight and conceals everything I need it to. It also blends very well with my foundation and stays on.

    It's works pretty well, just gotta work it

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer:

    It dries very thick but doesn't cover the actual acne as well as the area around it. I have to layer it on the acne spots but it does help dry out my acne and I can actually feel it doing its job. This is something you should use under your foundation though, it stands out if worn alone.

    Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer:

    This product is actually quite good, but has a learning curve. Let me start by saying I do not wear makeup on a daily basis: only tinted moisturizer to offset my rosy cheeks a bit. This means when I get a pimple it's red, and HUGE, and there's really no covering it up, which led me to this product. I read through a lot of the reviews before purchasing, and they are correct- it does set fast, a little goes a long way, and it's hard to blend. Here is the best way I've found to put this on and have it stay:

    1.       Wash your face.
    2.       Use a toner. I use clean and clear astringent with salycilic acid.
    3.       While your face is still slightly damp (NOT wet) take a tiny dab (I'm talking like a single grain of quinoa sized drop) and with your ring finger, pat it over the area, gently blending out with your finger. Repeat for all problem areas.
    4.       Put on moisturizer, but do NOT put it on over this makeup. It will wipe it right off, and you don't need to protect this spot with moisturizer, because it already has a topical acne treating product over it.
    5.       Don't touch your pimple/face for the rest of the day.

    I will buy this again when I run out. It's very handy!

        Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer:

        Love this concealer -I just want to reiterate that it's not the concealer you put under eyes, it's for areas with blemishes.
        It covers them perfectly AND does a great job speeding up the drying out & disappearance of marks on skin! CANT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS! Im medium and shade 3 is my perfect color!

          A little goes a long way and the concealer is full coverage. I will never not use this product. I'm not sure how well this product actually clears acne, but it definitely doesn't irritate breakouts or cause them.

            I would have given it 5 stars but it doesn't clear up my pimples as much as I'd hoped. It dries the. Out some, which I prefer.

              • only directly on a pimple

              Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer:

              I notice that some people have been misusing this product so I had to chime in... I highly recommend that you put a small tiny amount on your finger and put it directly over the pimple patting it until the concealer is dry. I am a medium tone skin type in the number two worked perfectly for me… Do not use this as an under eye concealer or is a foundation but if you have a couple spots on your face just cover the spots only with this product to cover anything else use your normal foundation. I hope this helps somebody out there… Because I live with frustrating breakouts as well.

                  This is great to have around when you have that zit (or zits!) that won't quit and you need double duty. This product not only helped the blemishes clear up more quickly, they provided great coverage so I could feel beautiful and confident while treating them! I used it with foundation and as a standalone and it worked really well both ways. Only a tiny, TINY dot is required. It's actually hard to get out just the amount you need. This tube will last and last.
