A year and a half ago, I started having serious skin problems that left my eyelids horribly flaky. I tried a variety of things to make it go away including going make-up free for a week as directed by my doctor. Makeup is something I’ve always had to be careful with due to skin sensitivities but over the years I haven’t had as many issues. This breakout freaked me out and annoyed me enough that I actually went to the doctor to have it checked out. For those that know me, that’s a big deal. I’m not a fan of going to the doctor.
He said it was totally normal – a skin fungus that resides on the skin and sometimes acts up. We don’t know what caused the flare-up but a solution was to use prescription-grade hydrocortisone cream. Unfortunately, it didn’t work. Not only did it not clear up the problem but it was also very painful. DH researched various products and found a small jar of cream for around $25. I’m cheap so I freaked out about the price… Until I used it and the skin condition cleared up in only a few days.
What this taught me is that there is a difference in the quality of products – whether it be lotions, creams or make-up. I’ve tried some higher end products such as Lancome and Ageless Derma with great success. You truly get what you pay for.
That’s one of the reasons I was excited to try out Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer. I’m a minimalist when it comes to makeup. Often utilizing concealers causes my skin to react and make the blemish even worse than if I hadn’t covered it up at all. That wasn’t the case with this. Since I’ve been using higher quality products, I haven’t had near the amount of breakouts as before. Here’s a small one that I wanted to camouflage.
It isn’t really bad but it’s enough to annoy me. It’s been hanging around for a few days and I’ve applied a small amount of Ageless Derma Concealer each day to cover it up. To my delight, I haven’t had a reaction to it. The consistency is rich but not so thick that it cakes on. I’ve used it several times and barely made a dent in the surface of the cream. I get a small swipe, not even a dab, and apply it.
As you can see, a small amount is all it took to conceal the imperfection. If you’re saying “Well, I can still see it” that’s because I didn’t put any kind of finishing powder on over it. I wanted the example to be clean and realistic. Had I used my foundation powder over the top, you wouldn’t have been able to see it at all – in the photo or in person.
It’s a very natural-feeling product that even this make-up sensitive person can use. Does this sound like a great product for your little imperfections? If so, enter to win one of your own!
