Worry keeps me up at night. It’s not positive. It’s not helpful. And, the resultant dark circles under my eyes are certainly not pretty! I keep puffiness at bay with Exuviance Depuffing Eye Serum and I can usually tone down the under-eye circles with Perfective Ceuticals Anti Imperfection Therapy Eye Cream. But sometimes, I need to pull out the big guns. You know… concealer.
I have tried numerous concealers over the years – everything from sticks, to creams, to mineral powders. In desperation, I’ve even used Dermablend, which is a professional formula actually designed for severe scars, hyperpigmentation, birthmarks, and such.
Most of the products I’ve tried conceal well — at first. My overwhelming issue is that by the end of the day, the concealer seems to have migrated to the fine lines around the eyes — in essence, magnifying them.
Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer, however, is different. This concealer is available in five shades. I chose Fair and it was spot-on for color. Other choices include Ivory, Wheat, Medium and Deep.
This concealer is a creamy mineral formula that you can apply with a brush, makeup sponge, or even with your fingers. I found that dotting the concealer very gently under the eyes gave me the most control. It was also smooth and easy to blend and feather, so there was no obvious hard stop-and-start edge. I finished with powdered mineral makeup, which covered the concealer beautifully. The final look was very natural.
This product is also great for sensitive skin. The concealer contains no parabens and is not tested on animals. It is made with Vitamin A, E and apple extracts. (According to the folks at Ageless Derma, “The apple extract helps to bright those dark spots on the face as it also fights acne and adds antioxidant protection to the skin for anti-aging skin cream benefits.”)
The concealer also held up well throughout the day. I did reapply around 3:00 pm, but there was no “puddling” around the edges or gathering in the fine lines. Retail $27.00
This concealer doesn’t actually take away my nighttime worrying, but it sure looks that way!
