    Comments about Dual Balancing Foundation:

    I love this foundation and I wish you wouldn't discontinue it. It's very hydrating and just the right balance between matte and luminous. I've used Shiseido now for about 10 years and this was definitely an item I always repurchased.

      Comments about Dual Balancing Foundation:

      I suffered from acne for more than 15 years. I have sensitive skin, very large pores and deep acne scars around the T-zone. My cheeks and hairline are dry, flaky and sensitive. Many of the major department store brands either irritate, burn, or cause acne on my skin. This foundation provides even coverage and makes my skin look dewy, but not smooth since I already have deep acne scars. It feels very light and non-greasy on my face. I don't feel that I'm wearing a very thick and heavy mask when I wear this foundation. This foundation is oil-free so it may be a little drying for dry and mature skin. I take off one star because I wish it's fragrance free and the bottle comes with a pump so it's more hygienic.

          Comments about Dual Balancing Foundation:

          I found this product in a makeup review book a number of years ago and tried it even though I had never tried a non-drugstore makeup product before. And I found a foundation that I don't want to ever give up. It goes on well, stays on well, finishes well, layers well, and looks ridiculously like skin without makeup on it. I would be lost without it!

                Comments about Dual Balancing Foundation:

                I have been looking to try a new foundation because I have found ones in the past I liked that companies no longer carry or have tried ones looking for full coverage that either split along my nose or are not very full coverage. This one is very nice. It is very matte, covers well but doesn't feel heavy on the face.I am a fair to medium skin tone with a little bit of yellow undertones, I love the shade I chose is fair ocre. is very nice on me. I would recommend it to others as well. I tried a sample I purchased on Ebay before purchasing the actual product and I was very happy with it.
