This month we’ve added to all our June boxes a sample of the Vichy Dermablend Foundation Cream-Stick! This amazing foundation provides a natural high coverage finish that also works wonders as a concealer, correcting minor skin flaws such as pimples and dark circles under the eyes.
This product became famous after the video ‘Go Beyond the Cover’ (watch here) went viral on Youtube. The video featured Zombie Boy, a famous model that has his body almost fully covered in tattoos, having Dermablend applied all over his body covering all tattoos. It’s impressive to see how the product can cover all his skin with the most natural look, so my expectations when I was about to try this product were really high.
The application is the secret to get the most of this great product. You should warm the product with your fingers and apply it using a dabbing technique. The formula is enriched with an oil that dissolves on contact with the skin’s heat and a texture that is non-greasy or sticky. For minor skin flaws you should apply the product working towards outside the edge, from top of nose to outer corner of eye.
I’ve been using this product as my daily concealer for a couple of days and I’m impressed by the extreme hold it has on the skin! I apply it in the morning and in the evening I can’t notice any dark circles underneath my eyes. It also contains SPF 30, which is great to protect the skin against sun damage. The brand also recommends the use of the Setting Powder to give even more coverage and hold.
