Without a spot to test this on I’ll have to leave it to other reviews to say whether the formula has any significant effect on blemishes, but by anyone’s standards, it should do. The formulation contains Aspen bark (which works as a natural preservative that’s also full of salicylic acid), tea tree oil (antiseptic) and Kaolin clay (oil absorber) as well as a peptide complex. bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Concealer is really the best of both worlds – a concealer that treats at the same time as covering. However, although we’ve been using concealing sticks for nearly ever, there can inevitably be some bacteria transfer unless you keep the end very clean or use a cotton bud to scoop from the pen and then apply to the spot.
I think I’d be happier using this on non-active or just emerging spots to conceal redness rather than as an actual treatment. There’s a built in pencil sharpener so the accuracy never goes, but before sharpening, pop it in the fridge for half an hour. This is a very creamy concealer and you will end up with one hot mess if you try and do it on a hot day!
The bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Concealer is set for an April launch – I don’t have (can’t find!) a price yet.
