As I suffer with acne scars, I generally opt for a foundation that offers quite a heavy coverage. I'd never tried a mineral powder foundation before and I decided to try this product out having loved many products in Clarins' range.
The packaging is unnecessarily fiddly in my opinion, but aside from that, the only thing that really bothers me about this powder is that it's too big to fit in many of my bags! I wish I could carry this around with me because it's so easy to just dust a little on my scars and it conceals them so quickly. It doesn't settle in fine lines in the skin which is also great! It's so light that you pretty much look like you're not wearing makeup at all.
Personally, I'm used to quite heavy coverage due to aforementioned acne scars, so I don't tend to use this product alone. I generally use a liquid foundation and use this as extra coverage for my scars. It's so easy for me to touch up my makeup with this throughout the day which I love. But if I'm in a hurry, I wouldn't hesitate to reach for this instead of my usual foundation.
I thoroughly recommend this product if you're looking for light coverage. It's great for sensitive skin and does wonders considering how light the powder is. However, it's worth noting that I don't think this product would be suitable for those with really pale skin - they do have several shades but I've found them all to be pretty dark. With a pale olive complexion, I can only just find a suitable shade. It's worth using findation.com - enter a few shades that you use in other foundations and see if the Clarins Skin Illusion Loose Powder Foundation is suitable for you before you buy!
