I’ve taken a a few days out from the busy world of formula one to visit my family in the Scottish Highlands. My mum is one of the few people from my everyday life that I told about this blog as I wanted this to be my own little achievement. After a lovely lunch with my Mum, Auntie and Gran, I was chilling out with my Mum when she piped up about this amazing concealer I had to try. Ever intrigued, off we trotted up to the bedroom and began rummaging around in her make-up drawer. I had never heard of the brand before, but I know Mum has tried loads of concealers, oils, foundations to little avail. See Mum has rosacea on her nose – which is a chronic skin condition with very little out there to help it. It’s not like eczema where it is really well known and there are countless products to combat it, but it is similar in that it can be pretty unpleasant and occur at any time. Oh did I mention it mainly occurs on the face? Anyway, I decided to write this post as my Mum was really excited about the concealer, but wouldn’t post a review herself (because it would be rubbish) so provided me with a page of notes! Excellent stuff. Hopefully this helps someone out there, as I know many people can be paranoid about redness, scarring or rosacea – or even any other skin conditions.
What QVC Say…

What My Mum Says…
I bought this after seeing a demo on QVC as the lady demonstrating removed her make-up and had rosacea. Instantly my attention was caught and after further inspection it turned out it was over her nose – very similar to mine! After applying some of the concealer, the rosacea was completely covered, so I bit the bullet and placed an order. I purchased the fair option, which is a good match for my skin (I wear Fair in Laura Geller balance and brighten and Light in Bare Minerals).
The concealer comes in a rather generous sized compact, complete with a sponge and good sized mirror making it perfect for travel. The packaging is nice and neat, with a top layer which holds the sponge and the bottom containing the product. I personally find the sponge a bit too clunky for precision application and instead use my Bare Minerals concealer brush. Once I have applied the concealer, I blend it in using the sponge for a flawless finish. The consistency of the concealer is quite creamy, but not at all thick and it is oil free so no worries about looking like a chip pan! This completely covers the redness and is the best concealer I have found for redness. Longevity is good, with the concealer lasting all day when applied on top of moisturiser and set using a light dusting of Bare Minerals or Laura Geller foundation. The compact is rather generous in size and I have been using this since the beginning of April so I think it will last for a long time – especially since you don’t need a lot!
