      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.

            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.

                Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer:

                It took me a while after getting this concealer to best figure out how to apply it. It drys way to fast to use a blending sponge but your finger can't blend it enough to mix in with your skin tone without it drying first. Maybe if there were more shades that wouldn't happen?? I found that putting it under foundation with a small brush is the best way to conceal breakouts and blemishes. I wouldn't say this is the best concealer I've seen for acne prone skin but the fact that it treats the blemish while it's on is why I buy it.

                Comments about Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer:

                I used this to cover acne blemishes and found it to be difficult to apply/blend and very drying. It did stay put, but it was obvious you were trying to cover up a spot. I will say that it did not cause me to have new breakouts and I am very prone to acne, especially from makeup. I'm upset because the color matched my skin and didn't cause new breakouts, but I wouldn't buy it again simply for the fact that it doesn't do what I intended, which is to cover blemishes smoothly.
