Since I was a teenager, I have always had a problem with my sensitive and acne-prone skin. I had a hard time choosing cosmetics and skincare products because I always broke out a lot. I have used various products to help calm my acne-prone skin, but those products only caused me disappointment.
Dr. Hauscka Translucent Makeup Foundation was strongly recommended by my friend. She also has a skin type that is prone to have acne breakouts, and she told me that this product helps to hide the deep pock marks and dark pimple scars on her chin and cheeks. I admit that I was not sure if I should buy this product at first since it costs $35.90 for a small 30 ml squeeze tube.
In addition, it is not readily available at our local drugstore or mall. However, I still decided to buy it because I was really desperate during that time, and I needed all the help that I can get. I bought it from Saffron Rouge, an online store, but I guess you can also get one from the brand’s website.
The consistency of the liquid foundation is thin and runny, which made me hesitant at first whether it would be able to help me with my dilemma or not. I squeezed a small amount the size of a nickel on my palm, and I then massaged it all over my face. You can use a cosmetic wedge sponge to blend the product completely, but I preferred to use my hands.
It was easy to blend because of its consistency. However, I was a bit dismayed with this foundation because I felt as if it was too drying. I also noticed that the coverage that it gave off was light. I still had to use a concealer after in order to hide the blemishes on my face.
In terms of the staying power, it was disappointing because it was gone only after two to three hours, and I had to reapply more than three times for the whole day. The only thing that I liked about this foundation is that it did not cause me to have pimple breakouts. I was thrilled because even though I used it on a daily basis, my facial skin stayed smooth and clear.
I am not sure whether I should still purchase and use Dr. Hauschka Translucent Makeup foundation or not because although it did not cause me to have pimple breakouts, the coverage was not sufficient to make me look like I have a flawless complexion. Nevertheless, I still recommend this product. You should give it a try, especially if you do not have many scars or blemishes on your face.
