Works for my sensitive skin
I use a small amount of this product almost daily over the Body shop's primer. Sometimes I experience small bumps under the skin (not cystic acne, just small white bumps) but that could be from the primer or just that I'm having one of those days. I have very sensitive skin. Over all I like this product a lot, quite pricy but worth it if you don't use lots of it.

ACNE OVERLOAD
So I have a slight sensitive skin and when I used this it was around the same time I started working at a coffee shop. I thought it was the food colouring (I'm allergic to red 40 and red 4) and used this foundation for 6 months. Turns out it was the foundation and my skin is healing again..

It was alright
I used to use this product a while back. It was good, not great though. I mainly stopped using it because the shade that was closest to my skin, still wasn't a very good match. I wanted to stick with it because of the generally natural ingredient, but it really didn't look convincing on my face.

Pros:

Can be used as a blemish/eye concealer
All over foundation,
Mattifies shine,
Long lasting,
Doesn't have that glitter effect that some cosmetic powders can have

Cons:

Brings up dry patches

I generally use Loreal Minerals foundation or Garnier's BB Cream. I change with the two depending on how I feel whether to wear liquid or powder. But I've always been using Bodyshop's All in One Compact Powder as a touch up concealer. Even when I'm not wearing full foundation outdoors. What I do, is use the tip of a cotton bud, rub it in the powder, and use it to conceal red spots and discolouration. I find it is also ideal to cover my dark circles under my eye. In the evening, if my skin looks a bit shiny whether wearing foundation or not, I use this powder to gently dab on around my face. This is also ideal for photo times to give that mattified look.

Pros:

great consistency
feels light but gives coverage
not too expensive
lasts a while

Cons:

make sure skin moisturised well first otherwise looks dry skin can look flaky

I changed to this when I started the regimen as discovered other make-up wasn't non-comodogenic. I'll keep using this as it seems a great combination with the regimen. I use lightest shade and it covers well. I also use the body shop stick concealer which has zinc in it. i buy disposable sponges to use with it and change them every 2-3 days.

Pros:

good coverage, doesn't make me break out, long wearing.

Cons:

Small amount of product in container, not a lot of shades to choose from.

I actually bought this based on the one other review on this site. I was in desperate need of a new makeup that wouldn't look cakey or break me out. I like the idea of a compact powder foundation for a quicker, one-step foundation process. This foundation offers good, buildable coverage and is oil-absorbing. If you do have any dry areas of skin they will look even worse under this make-up, but if your skin is oily this is probably a good choice. Also, if you apply this too heavily then it will look pretty cakey but that goes without saying. Luckily one of the few colors (like 5-6 shades) this comes in matches my skin tone. Overall I like this product.

Pros:

-covers acne, acne scars, and all other imperfections immediately
-can be used with the sponge given for very full coverage (although not "cakey") or can be used with a make-up brush for a medium coverage
-dries up excess oil
-lasts all day until you wash it off

Cons:

-somewhat expensive
-there isn't a lot of product in the container
-not ideal for dry skin

Not many people know this, but aside from using the sponge or the brush you can also use a wet sponge. With this you will get a slightly darker colour (perfect for if you have darkened during the summer) it goes on smoothly when wet (just make sure the sponge isn't too wet) and you'll have flawless skin all day. I love this product, I have been using it for years and it has not made me break out. If it does, you can return it.
