Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions: What I Thought.

Way back in February I bought this foundation as my skin was being horrible, all spotty and gross and I was trying to find something to cover the spots and also help treat them so this was ideal. In theory.

I've just used up the foundation today and to be honest I wasn't really a fan:

  • For a start the shade was wrong for me, it was too dark and warm but as it was the palest shade that Clinique offer this couldn't be helped really.
  • I don't think that it helped the spots that I already had, but it didn't break me out or anything.
  • It wasn't the best coverage. Meaning that I had to put loads on to cover the offending spots!
  • It seemed to disappear quite quickly
  • If you apply too much it goes a bit cakey but I needed to apply more than one layer to get the coverage I wanted. Lose/Lose.
  • It's also a bit sticky when you first apply it which is odd?
Some things that I did like:
  • It applies nicely when you use just the right amount, I use my Sigma F80 but it also works quite well just using your fingers
  • I like the bottle too, it's squeezy and has a small nozzle so you can get just the right amount of product out.
  • It has a satin finish, not completely matte which is nice 
Would I buy this again?

No, it was alright but it didn't help my spots, it doesn't have enough coverage for me and the shade range was not ideal for my skintone. If you already have ok skin this might work for you, but why would you buy an anti-blemish foundation? Bad clinique. 

I'd suggest you just find a good spot treatment and use an oil-free foundation if you have bad skin rather than spending over £20 on this.


  1. I am quite tempted by Clinique foundations but getting the right shade really puts me off...they seem incapable of matching you at the counters I've been to.

  2.  What a waste! It's too bad you didn't like it. :(

  3. I can never find a foundation colour to suit my skin, all the lightest shades are too dark for me, it's really annoying me a bit moment, I think I'm going to have to invest in something a bit more upmarket, like dainty doll or something, thanks for the review though, at least I know to steer clear of this one! xxx 

  4. Haven’t tried any foundation from Clinique yet, however, I like their Chubby sticks! :)
