This is something you will not want to hear - but I'm gonna say it anyway. I was a HUGE foundation person...didn't leave the house with out makeup on cause it covered my pimples and it made me feel more even toned. I didn't want to hear it from my doctor, but he was right. If this medication is ever going to work for you, you need to cut out foundation use on your face. It's a never ending cycle - once the meds start working, more pimples just develop because of the makeup - then the medicine is trying to clear it, but pimples just keep returning so in effect, your sabatoging the potential of the medication.

I didn't think I could do it - but I ditched foundation. Sure, I went around for a while with zits showing, but isn't a couple months of embarrassment worth clearer skin for life? Bite the bullet, get rid of the stuff from your morning routine, get yourself a pencil type concealor stick and only conceal any areas that are red, then dust your face with powder - then apply powder blush, then more face power. I use Almay power and blush. I use the concealor under my eyes too for the bluish circles.

Vita K Solution is great at moisturizing, but it's primary goal is the reduction of acne scarring. Your doctor may have said no to you for getting moisturizer, but trust me, you'll need to have some around for use cause you WILL be overly dry at times. Try it, I think you'll like it. Best of luck to you and remember, don't give up - this is going to take time to fix. :)
