Dermablend

I asked for recommendations on a concealer but got none. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">

So here goes my 2nd shot at this...I've been reading up on Dermablend. For those of you who haven't heard of it...just type it in at yahoo and you'll get their site. It's a line of make-up specifically aimed at hiding "problems". I keep reading about how wonderful it is and etc. The price seems to be about the same as Clinique and stuff. Have any of you ever used any dermablend make-up? Do you know anyone personally who has used it?

I will most likey get a concealer sometime this week...don't own one yet and the stupid foundation isn't doing'a good job with my latest "guests". So
any input would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Dermablend

I've used Dermablend, but I've found concealers I like much better. Dermablend is kind of thick and oily, and made my breakouts worse. Also, I couldn't find a realistic color in dermablend for my skin, and it's so oily, that when I used it under my eyes, it creased really bad. I could never make it look natural.

THe best concealer I've found is Paula's Choice (she's the cosmetics cop). It covers as well as Dermablend but doesn't crease, and isn't oily. Sears also sells skincare called Circle of Beauty. They have a good concealer as well.

Really, I didn't find the Dermablend concealer or foundation any better than anything I could buy at the drugstore, but it cost a lot more. IF your skin is drier than mine, or if you're able to find a better color match, then you may have better luck with it than I did.

Re: Dermablend

Have you tried Clinique "Stay True" make-up? I have great luck with that, and it oil free so it shouldn't cause breakouts. I have tried dermablend, and I agree with sujenke, there is no way to make it look natural. Try going to the clinique counter, and let them match their foundation to your skin tone. They are professionals and they can usually match it to your skin tone perfectly. It's worth a shot. Good luck.

Re: Dermablend

I've heard/read that Dermablend looks unnatural and thick on the skin.I use Maybelline Great Wear and it works very well.It doesn't cause extra breakouts.I've tried so many concealers and this is the only one i really like.<p>[This message has been edited by ~Cansu~ (edited 03-11-2002).]

Re: Dermablend

I'd have to agree with the folks who have posted their opinions on Dermablend. I used it years ago and found it unnaturally thick and gloppy. As I recall, it was/is a concealer that is used for major scar cover-up, which is why it applies so densely to the skin. That was why I used it--I thought I had major acne scars that needed industrial-strength cover-up.

I agree with the posters that there are better foundations and concealers for what cosmestic issues your acne is causing you.

Me personally, I have a regimen I have found I like, but everyone is different, so I guess you'll need to do your own investigation on several products before you find the ones you think accommodate your skin and the acne the best. Regards, pat Brown

Re: Dermablend

After I tried Dermablend and found it too oily, I tried (and still use) a mineral powder foundation called "La Bella Donna". It's similar to Bare Escentuals and several others, but dermatologists recommend La Bella Donna after dermabrasion and for people who have rosacea. It goes on very sheer and natural, but you can use more and build up as much coverage as you want. It's great for covering up red splotches, etc. The only problem with it is that it can make any flakiness or dryness more obvious. It won't make you break out, either!

Re: Dermablend

I will agree that Dermablend make up is not good. But if there is one excellent Dermablend product is the Dermablend makeup remover. I really recomend it. It doesnt break me out and believe me i have super sensitive skin. I use the makeup remover and I really dont need anyother cleansor after it. I love it.

Re: Dermablend

hey i'm a make up artist and that demablend is no good for us with acne as it has a lot of oil in it. I usually use it for hiding scars and tattoos and stuff like that. Clinique have a brilliant concealer in their anti blemsih range it helps dry up the spot and has great coverage. It will also cover up red scars left behind from spots. Its not expensive either.

Re: Dermablend

OK, so guess Dermablend is off the list now! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Since a few of you mentioned Clinique and I already use their 3-step skin "thing"...I'm thinking right now that I'll take a look at their concealer too. I'll probably go to the mall sometime this week and try on concealer there and talk to the saleswoman. But meanwhile, below are the diff. types of concealers they have and the description for it from their website. I of course will talk to the saleslady BUT those of you who use/have used Clinique, which one do you recommend? I have oily, light brown skin...I need something to cover up undereye circles and also very dark brown scars from acne.

1. Line Smoothing Concealer
Works undercover in a special way: actually "bridges" fine lines and wrinkles. Smoothing, minimizing for an instantly firmer look anywhere you need it. Special skin-brightening ingredients help counteract shadows, cut down on redness. Giving skin a more even tone. Long-lasting coverage builds from moderate to full. A master of disguise.

2. City Cover Compact Concealer SPF 15
Concealer; SPF 15 protection. Plus antioxidants, to defend against sun and environment. Chemical-sunscreen free.

3. Soft Conceal Corrector
Moisturizing cover to hide flaws, soften fine lines. Comfortable for dry skins.

4. Quick Corrector
Liquid concealer with sponge-tip applicator. Natural, medium coverage. In portable vial.

5. Advanced Concealer
Long-lasting, intensive camouflage. With daily use, helps firm and smooth. Matte, powdery finish.

Re: Dermablend

I have used clinique for years and tried many products. I have pretty bad acne, the best product they have and the only one I noticed actually helped my acne was the night treatment gel, get that for sure! I used the compact make up but while it doesn't make you break out, it wipes off on all your clothes, It always got on my shoulder when I would brush my hair away. It also runs out in about 2-3 weeks and its 20 dollars, it way too much $. I wouldn't use there normal moisturizer that is yellow, be sure and get the oil free one in the green pump bottle, its good, but expensive. I used the concealer in the round bottle, it was fine. I still use there anti bacterial bar soap sometimes and I use that night treatment gel, but, the three step program never helped my skin and other products I have found have ended up working the same and are a third of the price. I tried the acne wash, too irritating. turnaround cream, did nothing over a month so I stopped.

Re: Dermablend

you will probably need 2 seperate concealers.1 to cover the undereye circles and one to cover the acne marks. Laura mercier have a good undereye concealer for hiding the dark circles because it has a lot of pigment in it but when u put it on it doesnt look to heavy and wont crease, thats important in the undereye area. I would hen go for the anti blemish concealer in the clinique range because its great. Rosion xxx
