Review – Proactiv+ Repairing Concealer
After trying the Proactiv+ 3 Step Skincare Range, I was really intrigued to try more of their products. I was kindly sent the Proactiv Repairing Concealer* to test out.
The Repairing Concealer is marketed so that you can treat your spots and the same time as hiding them. With salicylic acid in it, it’s targeted to treat each individual spot, as you apply the concealer to cover up the imperfections. This concealer is a quad and advertised so that you can customize the shades to match your skin tone.
I have to say when I first saw this I was a bit skeptical as none of the shades seemed light enough for me. However the lightest shade in the quad is lighter than it seems and is a perfect match for my skin tone – HURRAH, I can test the product.
The concealer is really creamy and very blendable. I did need to use a couple of layers on my pesky red/dark spots, but in general it covered my blemishes well.
Something I will say though, the quad has 4 shades which are all quite different. The palette being customizable; I find it hard to believe that each person would use all of the shades. Also not all of them are going to match everyone’s skin tones. As I said the lightest shade isn’t very light and wouldn’t be suited to those with fairer skin tones and the darkest shade is definitely not dark enough.
Another point I will make is that even though the actual concealer is great I’m not sure I would pay £23.99 for it. In my opinion, I would only use one shade and that’s only a tiny amount of the product. I think for a makeup artist who would use all the shades, this would be a fab product for them to use on those with acne prone skin.
Overall I am very pleased with results this concealer has given me. It hides all my blemishes well, it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. It diminishes redness and I think reduces the size of the spot with all the skincare ingredients included in it.
