I recently ordered the Cons concealer and am very happy with the results. It has just the right consistency and opaqueness to cover a blemish or redness and allow you to blend out. The fact that it also treats the spot is an added bonus. I would recommend expanding your shades of concealer to address all skin tones, but this is a winner in my book.
I've been using this concealer for a couple of years. It works wonderful for my skin. So glad I found it and don't want to be without it!
I really enjoyed the way this concealer applied and wore throughout the day. It's very creamy. I used a brush to buff it into my skin for an even coverage. I wore this more as a foundation rather than a concealer due to the coloring of the product. As someone with extremely fair skin, the pigmentation of it just didn't match my skin. It's really yellow/orange making it impossible to blend with my skin color. This would be my go-to concealer if they offered a lighter more neutral shade. Coverage was good for a organic/natural concealer. It won't be full coverage but it will do a pretty good job. It didn't worsen any breakouts that were already there so that's a plus. I don't know if it really helped "heal" up any spots. I didn't see any drastic changes. Overall, I enjoyed it but wouldn't recommend it for someone as pale as I am.
Thank you for your in-depth review, I've noted the need for a darker shade, we're also working on a darker one to be able to cover 90% of customers.
Also making some upgrades to the formula to improve staying power, doubling the amount of bisabolol to help it heal blemishes better and adding a tiny bit of green pigment. Still, you're right it could be a better spot buster.
I love this concealer! It has great coverage and a little goes a long way. It lasts for hours, so I put it on in the morning and my skin is still looking good later in the day. It covers blemishes better than any concealer I've had in the past, I put a light layer of powder foundation over it and you can't even tell its there. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a new concealer.
Uniquely lipid-soluble, the keratolytic effects of willow tree-derived beta-hydroxy acid help loosen keratin in hair follicles. This can prevent blemishes from forming and help maintain the skin's acidic pH of 5.5 (2010 Seilder).
Thyme oil contains thymol, a compound that is highly effective in inhibiting the growth of bacteria believed to cause blemishes. At our low use level, it won’t irritate your skin (2010 Zu).
