Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer

Clinique has a new concealer just for acne/acne prone skin. This is good news. If you've looked , you'll see there aren't too many concealers for the really oily or acne prone. We needed more.

When I heard back in Spring that Fresh was coming out with a clay based concealer, I was so excited. Clay is so good for oil absorbing. But, it turns out the product has jojoba seed oil in it. So it's not really for me. I hear great things about it from many, but there is no way I can put that on my Texas oil well of a nose.

Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer has Salicyclic acid to help treat acne and break up oil, 10-Hydroxydecanoic acid to help control the spread of acne causing agents on the skin, Laminaria Saccharina extract, a seaweed that helps reduce sebum production as well as Caffeine to reduce redness.

What all that means is that your concealer won't add to your oil problem.

This holds up well throughout the day. I 've used it under my makeup and it has helped keep the shine down. You only need very little to cover a good size area.

There are 3 shades and a green tint for extra redness.
$ 13.50 at all counters in July

I love a clay based product! I discovered them during my Proactiv days, and now I can't get enough. I might have to give this one a try.

Hi Kim, the Clinique is not clay based, the Fresh one is. Just clarifying in case :) Let me know what you think, after you've tried it.

You know, I really am tired of this 3 shade business. I would love this product but they don't have my skin color :(

Beauty Alchemist said...

Oh Butterfly- thats a shame. shade matched in many things can be hard. maybe mix it w/something else like your foundation first?

I'm using a natural acne treatment in treating my acne. It effectively worked on me, it doesn't only treat and clear acne but also it leaves my skin soft and smooth as new.
