I am looking for a treatment serum and moisturizer for my acne prone skin. I have active breakouts and a significant amount of dark marks from my breakouts (chin & cheek area). I'm darker skin toned so my marks are dark. I use Origins Organics cleanser and toner.


Also can you please recommend some good Powder Foundations with full coverage?

Hi ljulius, 


To answer your question about powder foundations with full coverage, try the Lancome Dual Finish or the Make Up For Ever Pro Finish. 


Both have a great array of colors to choose from and have buildable coverage that looks amazing on the skin.

Have you experimented with face oils at all? I absolutely love Tarte's Maracuja Oil (I'm sure my fellow BT's will get tired of hearing me obsess over this! Smiley Wink )


Beauty oils help to add good oil to your face, which stops your face from over-producing its natural oil, which can cause breakouts. They also are excellent for hydrating skin. I particularly love Tarte's Maracuja Oil because it brightens skin and lightens scars- it packs a big punch of Vitamin C. It is also an anti-inflammatory, and can help noticeably shrink acne overnight (this is designed to be worn only at night time).TarteMaracujaOil.jpg

I second the oils. I personally use tarte maracuja oil all over then spot treat scars with josie maran argan infinity cream. The combo of vitamin c from the maracuja and vitamin e from the argan heals skin so quickly... I heard its because vitamin c is supposed to activate vitamin e? Whatever the science is behind it, it works!

That's really interesting, I'd never heard of that before! That might explain why my maracuja oil and vitamin e products from the body shop work so well together! Smiley Happy
