As I have mentioned umpteen times, it was my birthday last Wednesday (5th December). One of my best friends, Hannah (a fellow make up lover) very kindly brought some gifts round to my house a couple of days ago, including this little beauty!
It is the bareMinerals Blemish Remedy – it is essentially a powder concealer that aims to treat the spots it covers.
Just lately, I have had a few blemishes that have been bugging me. I also happen to have dry skin though, so I’ve never thought the powder products would work too well for me.
The pack contains the Blemish Remedy concealer pot and a handy little brush.:
The first thing I noticed when I tried out the powder was how easily it just melted into my skin – it did not look even remotely cakey or powdery on the face, which I absolutely adored.
Now I tried to take some ‘before’ photos of the blemishes I had, but my camera totally blurred them out so that I looked like I was making a big deal out of nothing. I do have a photo of my skin after applying the Blemish Remedy though:
(Apologies for the extreme close up!)
So you can quite clearly see where the blemishes are (I am wearing no make up, apart from the Blemish Remedy) but they are much more even. The blemishes you can see were much more red before the concealer – it just seemed to even and smooth out my skin and skin tone!
A few hours later and my skin is still looking good – I can’t say that it has got rid of the blemishes, but they are much less noticeable which is all anyone can really ask for! I can absolutely see myself using this under foundation to even my skin out. I really like it!
As it was a gift I feel weird about researching the price of it, but you can easily find out by searching on Google. Is it just me?
