Dermablend Customer Reviews
Today, our product review will focus on Dermablend Cosmetics. The line fits into a category know as concealment or corrective cosmetics. The products are formulated to hide skin flaws such as redness, bruising, discolorations, scars, post surgical lines and markings, Rosacea, and even acne. Some women have even reported great success using it to cover an unwanted tattoo!
The concept sounds like a godsend however it is important to do a little testing and independent research to answer a few primary questions that most women would be interested in.
- Do the products leave behind any kind of residue?
- Do they work across a variety of skin types and tones?
- What about sensitive skin?
- How does the line compare to other similar brands?
I decided to be my own first test subject as I have a bothersome scar on my face that is left over from an accident as a teenager. My product of choice for the test was the Dermablend Cover Creme SPF 30 for a larger area of concern and the Dermablend Covert Duet Corrector for the smaller, detailed areas.
The Cover Creme comes in a variety of shades which gives you great flexibility to match it with your natural skin tone. I would best describe it as a smooth, light foundation with flawless finish. It is extremely easy to blend and hides even the most prominent imperfections. I would describe my results as nothing less than outstanding! I was impressed with how gently the product went on while still masking my area of concern. Best of all, I never had that heavy feeling like I had layered on a traditional foundation.
Several other concealing products I've tried in the past have produced a good result but have felt like I was wearing a mask. This product felt completely natural and didn't enhance the visibility of pores and fine lines as some others do. I was able to easily match my skin tone and certainly enjoyed the added benefit of the 30 SPF sun protection. Much to my surprise; it left behind no residue whatsoever!
I recruited my sister as my next test subject since she has very fair skin and has traditionally had a very difficult time finding a product that is gentle enough for her skin yet produces favorable results. She had recently read an article about Dermablend cosmetics and was eager to try the line. We were able to find a tone to match her skin color almost perfectly and as expected, it left her looking flawless. I knew that the true test would be in how her skin reacted to the product as she has been known to develop skin irritations from products as simple as mineral makeup. After three days of use, much to both her satisfaction and mine; no reaction. I think we have a winner!
Overall, I was impressed with the performance of the line and give it 4 1/2 stars out of a possible 5. The only improvement that I would like to see them make is to expand their offering in some smaller and more portable packages. This product is perfectly suited to quick, on-the-go touch ups and mid-day refreshers so a smaller travel-size option would be very useful.
