I'm quite surprised that the ratings are so low. I think it's not that bad. It covers my zits fairly well, and I like how it's a concealer that helps to tackle zits. Sure, it's not very good at removing the spots (I find it more effective on those that are about to appear) and it can be cakey, but it's not all that bad. I use a Q stick to help blend the edges. In occasions where I go out without any foundation, I always make it a point to put this on. The limited range is a minus, but thankfully I found one that's relatively close to my skin. I also like the packaging, though perhaps a squeeze tube will be more hygienic?
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! I'm not a big fan of skin make-up to begin with so I try to get away with as little as possible and this product completely allows me to do that. I just dab a little on where I need it, use a brush to blend and cover with a bit of powder. The only negative thing I have to say about this is because it is applied directly to the face, you have to wipe it down every so often to keep it clean which just seems like a bit of a waste to me.
This is not a great concealer.
- It is a thick consistency and hard to apply
- Makes my makeup cakey
- Makes my skin red
- Average Coverage
2. Not enough coverage
3. Need to apply a lot of layers and red spots end up looking like a pimple
4. Hard to apply
This product is amazing!
1.Firstly,this product is WATER resistant,I don't mean sweat resistance,its really water resistance!This the best thing about this concealer,I tried this by applying the concealer on my hand and ran tap water on it,and it did not came off one bit!
2.The worst thing is the limited colour selection but I did not mind it as it matched my skintone,my skin is neutral,so I picked 01.
3.The product is creamy and easy to blend but that is only when you warm it up,the country I am living in is quite warm so it works.You could warm it up with hands if it is winter and on cool days.The product is also easy to build up on the skin witout getting cakey.The coverage is medium as I cannot cover blemishes fully without having splotches of pink everywhere.
4.The lasting power was average depends on how thick you put it on.
5.Last IMPORTANT thing,do not buy it if you have dry flakey skin,it would sort of somehow dye the flakes of dry skin!The product would make the flakes of dry skin more obvious too!Normally,I would put some moisturizer or lotion on before applying the product.
One more thing is that the tea tree oil in the concealer did not really work for me but it did not do anything to my zits too,but seeing that some reviewers actually complain about the concealer worsening their condition,I think I am one of the lucky ones that have no reaction at all.
I've been using this product for many years now and it's been good, the cover up is good but not great. It's not perfect, but I just haven't been brave enough to try other products (I'm afraid the others might cause acne/pimple.)
Bought this as tried lots of different products and found that this was above average and actually helped clear my blemishes! Cheap and handy and use on individual spots only! Coverage is not he best but I think it reduces the blemish which is the main duty for me.
Great product in all! The packaging is like a lipstick so you can carry it everywhere! Been using it for a long time and it covers pretty well. Plus the fact that it's tea tree makes it better for covering my spots or acnes. Would defo re-purchase!
While this product only comes in two shades, the shades happen to perfectly match my winter and summer coloring respectively and I just mix during the in between shades. Finding a perfect foundation/concealer/anything that goes on your face shade is near impossible for me normally. Like absolutely nothing matches (thanks olive skinned mom and pink under toned dad) because I'm both warm and cool toned kind of at the same time... which means that I tend to get matched more pink just because I do have red on my cheeks (but am pretty warm toned elsewhere), but then it's always too pink or if it looks neutral, it turns way pink after five minutes of wear. Yellow toned stuff then tends to go the other way and get too warm. But this blemish stick? Matches PERFECTLY. Not too yellow, not too pink. JOY!
Staying power: I'll admit, I'm kind of lazy. I'll give my absolute focus to putting it on in the morning and then I ignore it until I get home after work. If I'm going out again, I'll reapply. If not, well it's being washed off anyway. But it does last really well for me throughout the work day. Sure, when I get home, there's the hint of the hyperpigmentation coming through, but nothing anyone but myself, nitpicky as I am with my own skin, would notice. It actually kind of holds onto my blush in a way that putting it on foundation or bare skin doesn't do.
Cakey problem: I thought that too at first, but I've noticed that just patting with your fingers afterwards does wonders for smoothing that all out without ruining all the concealing you just did.
My way in the morning (and mind you, I have no active acne anymore, but I do have a complete face full of very, very stubborn and noticeable hyperpigmentation marks left behind) is putting the blemish stick on the places that need it, if I'm feeling really fancy, dusting a light powder on it (mainly for my t zone more than to set the concealer), then always blush. It covers so thoroughly that I don't need anything else. The powder really is for other purposes (read: pores) more than to help the concealer on those areas. I actually had a SA at Bobbi Brown ask me what I was wearing, then advise me to stick with it, because when I went there to get matched with a foundation (why did I stray?), she couldn't get anything to match as well as that silly little Body Shop blemish stick.
I love this product to cover up blemishes on my face. it really covers it up and also the fact that it has tea tree oil it in is really good for your skin and gets rid of blemishes and stuff. i however do not like this for under my eyes as it does tend to get dry and cakey. on my skin its perfectly fine as i do have combination/oily skin. i know a lot of people dislike the smell of tea tree but i personally love it!
