Firstly, this product as a foundation boasts that is is full coverage and let me tell you it is most definitely that! I prefer to wear foundations that are much lighter and subtle as I don't think I need full coverage but for those that suffer from acne and do what that full coverage to cover their acne this will definitely do the job. I didn't even apply concealer and on my skin it covered everything I usually have to use a concealer for. I also received a lot of complements the first day I wore this on how nice my skin looked, so in the opinion of others it must have looked nice!

As you can tell the coverage is full and in natural light conceals beautifully. The skin colour I got given a sample of was Natural and I felt it was just a tad darker than what I would have liked. But since this was a sample I can't really complain. I can say that my skin after I took this off did appear clearer. I was fighting off the back end of one spot on my cheek and by the end of the day it had completely gone! One thing I was interested to find out when I opened this product is how it smelled, would it smell like acne creams usually do? The answer to that is faintly, but its not an overbearing or lingering smell.

After I had used the sample once I chose to squeeze out the product in to a contact lense case I've never used like I usually do when de-potting liquid products. Since I use minimal product and this is full coverage this will probably last me a good two weeks.
Now on to the positives and negatives;
- Good price at 30ml for £6.99
- Offers full coverage
- Medicates acne
- Solution did appear to help skin after a few applications; would be interesting to see the effects of a four week application on acne prone skin types
