17 ON THE SPOT FOUNDATION: £6.99 @ BOOTS
We all know that one of the worst things about spots is the vicious cycle of spots–heavy makeup–clogged pores–more spots–more heavy makeup—more spots–etc. I am incredibly lucky that I have managed to avoid acne for most of my teen years (so far anyway) but I was still intrigued about a product that promised an immediate conceal but long-term prevention. And it comes from 17, a brand whose base products have been pretty good as of late with Phwoarr Paint and Stay Time (review to come).
I have just finished the recommended four week trial period and, well, it’s alright. Nothing special, you know? It didn’t particularly clear up or prevent anything, but it didn’t cause any new blemishes either. The coverage is nice, medium-to-high although definitely more for oily skin as it clung to my drier areas. However I am very wary to write this off completely as if I’m honest I really don’t think I’m the intended target market.
Overall would I repurchase?
It’s a decent foundation, so never say never. Please let me know if you have tried this and you have more blemished skin though, as I don’t think I can really give it a rigorous testing!
