Rated 2 out of 5 by from Possibly misleading ?? I’ve used this product once on my mild acne prone skin, and the next day i broke out worse than before, and in spots I usually don’t get pimples, like my forehead. Not only that, but the same day i wore it i noticed that it’s very blotchy as well. Id say that maybe it’s just not for my skin type, but isn’t that the whole point of the product?? Sadly, this product was disappointing and was a waste of $9.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes my Acne and Scars More Noticeable I have tried several shades, thinking this was the problem with coverage. NO, this product makes my acne and scars more noticeable regardless of the shade. It does not go on smooth, it is cakey, doesn't blend well and was a complete waste of money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blotchy, Cakey, and heavy I've been using this product for a couple months and at first I thought I liked it, but then it didn't blend very well and was a weird color. I have dry skin and it made my skin even drier and it felt cakey and blotchy. I just feel gross when I wear it, so I stop using it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Splotchy and doesn't blend I was really excited to buy this product as it helps clear acne while covering it, but when I actually used it I became very disappointed. I tried applying it tree ways and none of them got the product to blend. I used my hands, a beauty blender, and a brush. All the product did was smear around my face, and it barely covered anything. My skin was well moisturized so I don't understand how the application came out splotchy, uneven and smeared. I don't understand how it has so many good reviews. I will never waste my money on this product again. From now on I'm sticking with Maybelline BB cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I absolutely love the Neutrogena SkinClearing Complexion Perfector! I have used it daily for several weeks now. Not only have I noticed a positive difference in my breakout frequency, but I also love the sheer coverage it provides for my face. It doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup, but it covers any bumps, pimples, and discoloration while also fighting the acne. I have sensitive skin too and this didn't cause any irritation. I received a sample of this product for free through PINCHme in exchange for an honest review, but I will definitely be purchasing this once my sample runs out. :) Thanks, Neutrogena!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Product!! I recently received a sample of the SkinClearing Complexion Perfector in Light from PinchMe and couldn't be happier! I have combination skin and regularly have bumps on my face. This product is quick to use and provides great coverage! I mix it with a little moisturizer and it works great! I don't feel horrible about putting it on my face because I know it helps clear things up!
