I am truly a skin care and beauty junkie! Not only that, I am an educated consumer as I read ingredients to see what will and will not work with with my combination skin. I tend to have hormonal breakouts and while the acne serum/treatment that I currently use works wonders on my skin (www.iceelements.com), I was searching for a portable concealer stick that I could carry in my makeup bag for touch-ups and that is when I found Murad's concealer stick.
This is a fairly new product and tends to sell out pretty quickly but I was lucky enough to find one at Sephora. It comes in three shades-light, medium, and medium/dark. I use the medium/dark and although I could use a darker shade if they made one, this is still fine because I put on a very thin layer and blend it into my skin and wear my foundation over it. You would never know that my skin was in the process of healing because you just cannot see the concealer!
The applicator is brilliant as it is in stick form and you twist up the applicator and roll it on your blemish. I like the applicator because you do not have to continually dip your fingers into the product therefore compromising the product & putting your bacteria in it-this is extremely sanitary.
This works so well for me because it contains 2.0% salicylic acid and my face responds extremely well to salicylic acid. Although the price on this was a little bit more than I expected to pay, it was worth it because this will last a long time since I only use it on targeted areas (a tube is .09 ounces). This is a very easy product to incorporate into your own skin care regimen.
