Happy Friday Glamour babes! Another glorious weekend is coming upon us and so is another great review by yours truly of course ?. I don’t know if you know but I am a huge concealer queen. I prefer it over foundation. Depending on some of the concealer coverages it can cover quite well and I feel some can leave the skin looking flawless much like foundation. That being said, I decided to be a good concealer hoarder and use up every last tube and jar that I owned before I purchased a brand spanking new one. Let me tell you the task at hand that I put myself through was not easy for this makeup junkie, but it was well worth it in the end, lol. Boo-Boo Cover up is the heal while you conceal concealer and it can be found at Ricky’s, Amazon, Soap, Ipsy, and Birchbox.com for $20.00 a tube, or you can purchase the travel size version for $10.00. I have never heard of this concealer before and I was intrigued to try it because of the 5 beneficial key ingredients listed to aid in the healing process of the skin which is what I severely need right now due to my acne and scarring.
Here’s the Boo-Boo Cover Up Breakdown so you can better understand it folks. Have a Boo-Boo? Skip the bandage and the shiny ointment. Look your best even while you heal with Boo-Boo Cover-Up for the body (tattoo’s, acne, redness, scarring, and bruises). Our innovative formula offers great coverage for skin imperfections while containing ingredients known in nature to promote healing. Contains Aloe (helps burns, wounds, skin irritations, and acne), Chamomile (helps speed up the process of wounds, dry skin, swelling, acne, and rashes), Green Tea (repairs skin and is known to help bruising, acne, wrinkles and uneven skin tone), Tea Tree Oil (helps infections, wounds, insect bites, and acne) and Vitamin E (helps moisturize dry skin). It’s also fragrance free, so it’s good for all of you out there with sensitive skin. This concealer is sounding pretty good so far huh?!
There are three shades to choose from light, medium, and deep. I went with the medium shade since they claim it matches most skin tones. I am pretty fair and the light was too pale for me, this shade would be perfect for you porcelain beauties out there. So apparently there claim is set to be true, the creamy peachy beige formula was on the right money for my complexion.
To achieve a better blending effect I used my fingertip instead of a concealer brush and applied directly to the areas I wanted covered and feathered out the edges for a natural finish. Does it stay put throughout the day? Absolutely! I usually apply in the A.M. and when I return home early evening my face is still intact with no patchiness or streaking. As for the healing properties, this stuff does work, but it takes time. I have been using this for about two weeks now and I do notice a lot of the swelling from my acne breakouts dying down and my scarring has lightened up, not to mention the redness from the acne. One quick dab of my Boo-Boo cover up, a little bit of blending, and just like magic it’s gone! To achieve desired results whether you’re trying to cover a tattoo, bruise, or scars layer as much as you need to. Boo-Boo Cover Up doesn’t clog pores and is most certainly fragrance free, and is perfect for all skin types. Now who’s ready to kiss those boo boo’s goodbye?! Stay beautiful! Xo.
