I wouldn't purchase this product again nor would I recommend it for sensitive or dry skin. Here's why:
About me: I have sensitive skin prone to redness and dry skin. So, I try to be careful in what products I use. Needing a concealer, I headed to my local Shopper's Drug Mart beauty boutique (in Canada at most Shopper's Drug Mart you can find different beauty lines) where the young woman offered her help. I explained I was looking for a concealer that was of medium coverage, smooth and tolerated by sensitive skin. She showed me this Dermablend Cover Creme. Although it's marketed as a foundation- the creamy texture seemed like I could also use it as a concealer.
Dermablend claim: "The ultimate full cover cream foundation. Cover creme provides reliable, flawless, and full camouflage in a velevty smooth finish. Achieve 16 hours of consistent color wear when paired with the Setting Powder.
My reaction in store: Promising. It's made fragrance free and for sensitive skin and the list of ingredients were minimal:
Paraffinum liquiduidum, Talc, Cera alba, Isopropyl palmitate, Stearyl stearate, Kaolin, Copernica cerifera cera, Cera microcristallina, Allantoin, Lauroyl lysine. [+/- Cl 77891, Cl77492, Cl 77491, Cl 77713, Cl 77499].
Where it's made and cost: Dermablend is made by L'oreal USA and my box says Made in Canada. It cost me $44 Canadian.
Shade: I was color matched to shade 30C True Beige which seemed too dark in the jar but worked on my summery NW20 skin. (though in winter I'm NW15). True Beige is a cool tone and not as yellow or warm as the other shades.
Reaction after use: I had to stop using this. I have noticed that while it offers medium coverage at best, it makes my face itchy and dry. At first, I wasn't sure if it was because of this, so I used it again on bare skin and indeed, this was the culprit. It also highlighted my pores and my dry skin. The directions say to warm the product up in your skin, add a layer then set with the setting powder. If more layers are needed to repeat. I suspect it's the talc in this product causing the itchiness and the Kaolin causing the dry sensation.
Package: It comes in a 28g clear plastic jar. The product feels slippery yet highlights my dry skin- weird! It does not blend so well- the more you blend, the more the product moves which defeats the coverage claim. Also, I noticed some users mention an SPF 30 on the box, my box says nothing of the sort. Verifying this on the website: checkcosmetic.net, I looked up the batch code: 18P10P (L'oreal brand) and found the date of manufacture was Jan 2017. Perhaps they removed the sunscreen component?
Recommend: No- not for those who dislike talc or who have dry skin.
Alternatives: Thanks to a Sephora associate, I found a concealer alternative that did not cause me to react and worked well with my dry skin: Lancôme tient idole ultra wear camouflage ($37 Canadian) in shade 215 Buff (N).
Hope this helps :)
