Happy Friday AMW Friends! I realized that I did a review on a whole lot of concealers but I haven't really blogged about concealers that are focused on blemish correcting! Maybe, it's because I'm born perfect and I don't have zits? *laughs* Just joking! I do have my fair share of zits and acne-related stories but that happened when I was still in high school and I wasn't allowed to wear makeup then! And to be honest, I don't see much makeup brands back then! Yes, I know, high school seems like CENTURIES ago! :P
Today, I'm finally reviewing a concealer that's made for spot correcting! Don't get me wrong, I do have zits and spots every now and then but I am too lazy to use products that specifically target those problems! I'm an all-in-one product type of girl! *winks*
Yves Rocher says ---
Hide imperfections and dry in one step.
Targeted dual action:
- All day long concealed pimples.
- After 6 hours: dried pimples.
AMW says ---
- Easy to carry tiny tube packaging.
- Easy to control amount of product needed to squeeze out.
- Has a cooling effect and does dry out pimple and spots.
- Gives good amount of coverage if applied correctly.
- 1 shade only.
- Could be drying on skin.
- Product may not be effective on long time zits and spots.
A good spot corrector as the color can counteract redness and other acne marks. Has a cooling effect and according to my sister, it does dry up "newly sprouted" pimples not in 6 hours, it takes longer but it has a drying effect.
- Apply a small quantity of the product directly on the blemish.
- Use patting motion.
- For zits, I strongly suggest to use a very fine concealer brush to apply the product directly on the area and blend out harsh edges.
- If the Yves Rocher SOS Blemish Corrector shade is different from your skin, it helps to apply this concealer prior to foundation application!
- Feel free to re-apply concealer after foundation application (if the shade matches your skin tone).
Not for me but I wouldn't mind recommending! My sister loves this!
To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who suffers from pimples, acne marks, spots and blemishes of all sorts.
Where to purchase and how much?
Php450.00 (approx $11.25) at Yves Rocher TriNoma Mall, SM North Edsa The Block, SM South Mall, SM Fairview and Ayala Center Cebu.
I prefer to apply a tiny amount of product at the back of my hand and warm it up with my fingers before applying directly on to the areas needed for concealing. The reason for this is the warmth of my fingers can make the product apply smoothly as compared to direct application as I have dry skin!
If you have oily skin, it is okay to apply product directly on zit using your fingers or brush.
Yves Rocher Pure System SOS Blemish Corrector 6H has a salmon shade. If not for its pimple fighting properties, this shade works so well for my under eye circles.
Warming up the product at the back of my hand makes it easier to create smoother application. The product tends to sit in lines around the skin so be careful!
Note: Do not apply this product on the under eye area just like I did, this is only for demonstration purpose. The product has cooling effect which is meant for spots and blemishes and contains ingredients that can dry up unwanted pimples.
Do you agree with me how perfect the shade is to counteract the darkness around my eyes? Unfortunately, this product isn't meant for the under eye area! According to my sister, this covers her pimples and red marks pretty well and she's okay with the product even if the drying effect doesn't take quick effect.
Do you use separate concealer for under eye area and for spots?
I am quite lazy and straightforward with my makeup application, I may do all sorts of steps for clients but I prefer using one concealer for both under eye circles, redness around the face and some spots! Call me lazy...yes I am! :)
