Makeup looks nice but it ruined my skin.

I had this product for a while and really liked it. I started working full time at a certain beauty retailer, and thus began wearing makeup at least 5 days a week. After 6 months of wearing makeup nearly daily and receiving hundreds of dollars of free product, I was going through constant breakouts. One batch of acne would finally flatten and another would pop up.

One day I looked in the mirror and realized that, while the skin where there weren't blemishes looked fantastic, my breakouts were worse than I can ever remember. Realized it must've been my new products and went back to all my old products... and my skin got even worse. I went through all my products and thought, hmm, let's check this primer I use every single day. Lo and behold, Primerizer has an ingredient with a comedogenic rating of 5 at the top of the list. Sorting reviews on Sephora showed others claiming this primer ruined their skin. So I stopped using it. And my skin is already clearing. I'm tossing it and my travel size version in the trash.
