I'm quite acne-prone and haven't gotten any breakouts from this cream.

I have very sensitive skin although I do not have acne. Even products with more fragrance irritate my skin and eyes. I have not had a single problem with anything using this. It is a little heavy for daytime use unless it is very dry or cold but it is perfect at night. I switched from the Philosophy for sensitive skin which I liked but I wanted something a little more intense. This is perfect and you do not need much to see and feel its effects. When I wake up in the morning my skin is so soft! If you are near a Sephora store ask them to make a sample for you. I bet you will end up buying it!

I suffer from a similar problem (adult onset acne) and have tried Clarins and although it is a fine creme I do not feel like it helps when you use acne cleansers that tend to dry out your skin more. I use First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Cream on my face and it seems to be doing the trick, it also is less expensive, absorbs more easily and is very comfortable to wear. Hope this helps!

Actually, I have the same problem. I had great skin, and then out of nowhere, adult acne for a period of 6 months. It stopped once I switched to Clarins. I also get the white bumps if I'm using a cleanser that is too harsh or a moisturizer that's not hydrating enough. So I switched to the one-step cleanser (which cleared up the acne), and to the hydraquench cream, which speeds up the healing process of the hyperpigmentation. I find that it does not clog my pores, and it does help purge existing bumps. I am completely in love with this cream now and use it day and night.

I recommend speaking to a skincare professional. I had a slight on set of adult acne too, on my chin. When I spoke to a woman at the counter where they offer skincare products she gave me life changing advice! The reason I had bumps etc was bc I was using acne fighting products/face washes on the area and or too harsh of a product; and put cream and moisturizers over it which clogged pores and complicated the skin. Now I make it simple I use clarins Shea butter gentle wash and toner with the cream. If I do have a break out(which is absolutely normal for woman) I am careful not to use cream over the area in order to let it dry out. Hope this helps! It works wonderfully for me, I'll never switch!

use this, it's not comedogenic at all + it calms down the skin for it contains natural ingridients for that purpose (I read it in little paper in box to make sure, although I can feel it myself)
If this didn't congest my pores in this horribly hot climate I live in now - nothing will :-)
I sugest you to go for it.
I think this would be a good cream to try for your skin as it has a pretty simple ingredient list, is not greasy and absorbs well (won't leave an oily residue on your skin) It is important to keep even acne prone skin well hydrated and you should be able to tell pretty quickly if this were to negatively affect your acne issues.
