Im currently using a No7 foundation and a Stila concealer both of which i dont think are helping the acne. Brilliant coverage but im not sure they're non comedogenic. Please could i have some recommendations. I have cystic acne just on my chin. Currently under GP on antibiotics and a topical liquid but thinking of getting the LRP range as im tearing my hair out. At least when theyre covered im not so self concious. TIA.

I'm currently using a Mabelline BB cream with salycillic acid in it, which is working v well for me (with No 7 perfect blend concealer for the worst spots that need additional coverage)

Lily Lolo or Bellapierre mineral foundations. LL is cheaper but you need their separate concealer. Bellapierre is an all in one product. It will cover everything and help your skin heal.

Have a look at Lisa Eldridge's technique. She recommends using a light base and covering the spots with concealor.

I have the same problem. I use Estee Lauder double wear foundation. It's my holy grail!! Given me so much more confidence and it lasts all day. Also it's one of very few that have a shade light enough for my skin.

Another vote for Lily Lolo but I find I don't need an extra concealer , I just use extra foundation .

Lisa Eldridge's Dermablend technique all the way.

And Effaclar Duo.
