Concealing Magic

So you know when you’ve got a pretty nasty breakout, and you want to just cover it in spot treatment? But then you have to go out, so you layer concealer on over…and then it all goes flaky and gross and even more obvious than if you’d just left it alone. That’s my problem every darn time I get a noticeable spot. I don’t know what the hell to do.

I used to layer on Dr Nick Lowe Spot Gel under a thick layer of Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer and the whole thing just looked messy and wrong. So that meant that I skipped the spot treatment and therefore felt guilty that I wasn’t healing my blemish, but covering it in more makeup that would probably make it worse. That was until I finally bought myself one of those ‘magic’ concealers that everyone and their mother always raves about. I bought the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel concealer in the shade ‘natural’ which is olive toned and pretty much an exact match for my skin tone. It has a medium to full coverage, totally reduces redness and treats the blemish at the same time as concealing. Woah. My mind was blown. I gave it a whirl and it worked immediately, my spots were visibly reduced after using it. Hurrah! I can imagine this also works wonders on ‘post eyebrow threading’ sensitive red skin that could potentially break out (been there), so I’ll be keeping it handy in my handbag at all times from now on!

I’ve heard that Eucerin do a good version too with a wider shade range, but for now I’m very happy with my Boots offering that costs just £4.59! Available here.

    You mentioned post eyebrow threading – rubbing the area with ice works wonders.
