I have used the absolute range – It`s pretty sheer isnt it ?

No the absolute mousse isnt completely safe for acne prone skin as it has a lot of silicones in it (you can make out from the slippery feel of the foundation ).If you are sensitive to silicones (most apst 3 people are) , then it`ll definitely break you out.This also depends on how long the foundation is being left on the skin everyday. The skin cover is better in that respect – and none of the products in this range disclose their ingredient list – another reason why one cant recommend the products at the drop of a hat…

The compact is relatively safe – it hadnt broken me out as far as I remember. But I have noticed that both the foundies stick to dry patches on the skin – which I`m not a fan of. Makes me look like a 3000 year old mummy who has just woken up from it`s cursed sleep XD

However , if you are using the foundies just for special occasions and they suit you , you shouldnt worry.


Hi Richa, this link will help you with selecting acne-safe products. BB and CC creams, almost all of them are comedogenic. If you want light to medium coverage for everyday use, Chambor Sheer Delight Ultra-Matte Foundation (comes in a tube) is a pretty safe option. You will need to wear sunscreen underneath or even just mix a bit of this foundation with your current sunscreen. That will sheer it out even more. It is not very expensive either. Do go over the link I mentioned and it will take out the uncertainty from choosing acne-safe products.


Hi @RG , thank you , you are so sweet ^_^ and @pam People are mean arent they ? But I see more and more people suffering from breakouts due to high levels of pollution and lifestyle changes (more caffeine intake , less sleep , more stress) everyday. People shouldnt look down on others who have acne. Those who have acne have a lot on their plate and will eventually get clear skin. Just like someone who`s obese and has to work 5 times as hard to control food cravings compared to one who`s naturally skinny , those who have acne have to be careful about what they use on their face , search a lot to get the products they need in their city , and then deal with the social pressure to look good than those who are genetically blessed with clear skin. It`s time humans started being humane and used their common sense ;P


Hi..thanks for response

i love your tag line..”keep calm and cure acne”…i totally need to follow it right now.

last time wen i used the products..i got couple of systic acne but before that i have never had acne after using the product.these are expensive products so u dont feel like throwing them..

i normally dont use them everyday…but now i need to i guess becuse of the marks left my the recent acne bout.

can u suggest something which i can use everyday for coverage…i am confused between BB creams,CC creams and concealers and the long lists…:-(

for special occasions i can use concealer and foundation but i can not use it everyday..(and i hate the first reaction of everyone when they see me…arrey ye kya ho gaya tumhey)…i feel more furstrated after that reaction.


Omg!! That’s what I do: ‘sheer delight + la sheild ‘ 🙂 I love the effect.



I had people asking me if I’m recovering from chicken pox :p which is why I bought sheer delight in the first place.


@padm1n1 – I thought your name was padmini from the id 😛 Padmini was the beautiful queen of Chittor , wasnt she ? ^_^

@richa – couldnt tag you in the reply due to some thickheadedness on my part , so did it here. 😀


@keepcalmandcureacne totally agree 🙁 I hate all that pity & false concern. Yep, your right 🙂 its Padmini!
